We love Vincenti’s. Maureen, the owner, prides herself on knowing her patrons & providing excellent food in a lovely
dining atmosphere. While many restaurants come & go,
Vincenti’s has a loyal following of patrons who appreciate the great menu & service.

Poor Value and deceptive business practices. There are alot of better places in LA. avoid this place.

we purchases a 500 dollar bottle of wine 2012 (Biondo Santi) Brunello which was supposed to be the reserve ($350 retail) a bottle but when it came to the table it was the anna ($150 a bottle retail). not knowing the price difference off the top of my head we accepted the bottle. What set us off was on top of the $350 markup on the wine, the manager added in a $85 manatory tip on the wine (when 2 people were dining) and 20 percent manatory tip on the food check. i paid with two card because i paid for the wine out on my personal card.

Buyer beware!

disappointing because the food and service was very good.

After spending $800 dollars on dinner, they charged $10 for valet parking.

For my Groupon, which I had forgotten about. Very nice atmosphere and delicious food.

This is a terrific restaurant. The service well coordinated and efficient. The quality of the food is hard to top. For this combination, you pay appropriately.

Their great reputation is well deserved.

This restaurant was one of my favorites but not anymore. I don't know if it was an off night but the food was just ok, nothing terrible but nothing spectacular either. The service was the worst of all, everything from the greeting from the host to the table side service was rushed and disorganized. There were 4 in our party and we all agreed that out of all the high end Italian restaurants this was on the bottom of the list. Try Scopa Italian Roots in Venice, they will compare very favorably.

Delicious fish and seafood, Italian-style, meaning super fresh with simple, tasty preparations. No hype or "LA scenes" just excellent food in a quiet setting where you can converse easily.

We went to Vincenti Restaurant to celebrate a birthday with some friends. We asked for a quite table. They put us in the back room. It was fine until other people came. The noise level was so high we could not hear each other
Two of us ordered the price fix and our friends ordered from the menu. The waiter asked us if we were sure as it was a lot of food. We ordered it anyway. They appetizer and salad were plates you would expect for one person not for two to share. The main course was better.
After dinner our friend ordered desert. When desert came there was a slice of cake (which he ordered) and a scoop of gelato with a candle and the plate said happy birthday. The waiter put the plate in front of my wife to blow out the candle then pulled it away and gave the plate to our friend. Made not sense.

A consistently great restaurant. The menu items are wonderful, but the specials are always inventive, beautifully presented and delicious. They have a wood burning oven, which lends great flavor to the Dover sole. The servers consistently warm, welcoming, knowledgeable and efficient. And the owner Maureen keeps a watchful eye out to make sure everything is perfect.

The unassuming front/outdoor facade of the restaurant is very understated. Once you step in past the hostess table, there is a elegantly done dining room with a beautiful kitchen-view wall and classic decor with subtle accent-lighting. There are tables in some niches for privacy and others in the main dining room. As part of the dining room, there is an additional area that can be closed off into a private dining room for groups and/or privacy.
The staff was fantastic, food was excellent, wine list quite respectable and overall, this understated neighborhood gem was an incredibly pleasant surprise to realize that such a high-quality and delicious restaurant is just steps away from the heart of the Brentwood village. I've walked past this for years without a second glance; very glad that I've tried it and now have an additional go-to restaurant for a nice, local meal that I would be proud to bring guests to.

Excellent food and service. Owner Maureen warm and welcoming. Waitstaff very attentive. Out server, Erica, knew the menu from start to finish and was able to describe every dish and make excellent recommendations. My Dover sole was roasted to perfection and the preparation was as tasty and satisfying as any Dover sole I have ever had. Definitely a restaurant I will return to many times and will be happy to take friends there.

Our primary server was terrific, the rest of the service was indifferent. Not at all commensurate with a restaurant this pricey. We brought our own wine, $40 corkage. Would not go back.

We were delighted to celebrate what would have been Mauro Vincenti's 75th birthday with great friends and the delightful Maureen. Chef Nicola prepared a special meal in honor of Mauro that he would have truly appreciated. His touch with pasta seems to get better every year and the Porchetta was amazing. Always a pleasure to dine at Vincenti and this time even more so!

The server forgot to put my order in and didn't notice until I asked. And she thought it was a big deal she comp d me cookies for $5. No one picked up plates from appetizers to dinner to dessert. We had to ask for them to do that. The service was horrible. The food is pricey and nothing special. This restaurant was once great and now past it's prime. And did I mention the service was horrible?

The space is nice and the staff were very accommodating, but for the price the food was very forgettable. I asked the waitress what she would recommend and she offered up the duck as a house favorite. When it arrived it was so dry I could barely swallow it. I was then told I would have to choose a different dish as they couldn't give me a replacement duck because all of them were put on the rotisserie at the same time and were all equally dried out - a fresh one would take 1hr 30mins to cook. I'm not sure what that says about the chef that the all the duck was left to dry out and then served anyway...
