pasta undercooked. meatballs overcooked. Service was literally non-existent . Overall for the price completely not worth it. Only positive past of the meal were the pre meal cocktails.

This is no exaggeration - there is no finer Italian restaurant in LA than Vincenti. Indeed, this should be on everyone’s top 3 list for all LA restaurants. A warm welcome and attentive, informed and kind staff set the tone for the evening. The menu offers a wide variety of options, and there are always creative specials that are offered as well. The food is cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The seafood dishes are particularly outstanding, as are the pastas, the salads and the evening’s wood-fired offering.

Excellent restaurant ~ try the duck if available ~ simply delicious. One of the people at our table had the salmon and said it was the best she'd ever had!

I first want to say the food is really good! We were a bit taken aback by the "service fee" of $13. It's not a tip.. it's a service fee. so we had to tip on top of that. Just saying that it brings the overall value down because it's already pricey..

Food substandard. Pastas soupy and no taste. Add gratuity to bill and still give you a receipt for a tip. Never go again

Vincenti Ristorante has never failed us. The food, the wait staff, the ambiance
and of course, Maureen.

I can recommend it to anyone who appreciates very fine dining.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner here. The ambiance was nice and refined yet a bit casual.

Highlights:
- Starting right off the bat with the complimentary bread basket accompanied by a bean spread....that spread is so good. Arguably the best tasting thing of the night.
- Highly recommend their calamari - the batter is very light (as it should be!) and the flesh was soo tender. We'd would go back just for that.
- The braised red cabbage side was very memorable as well. It has a nice savory tartness to it.

Great service - Our server forgot one of our side orders, which was not a big deal because he was manning a handful of tables by himself and we were quite full. He insisted to bring out the order anyways and give it to us on the house.

Host/owner Maureen was welcoming and gracious, our waiter’s recommendations, particularly with the wine were excellent while our servers were attentive and responsive without being intrusive. The food was outstanding - the red and gold beet salad with buratta and arugula was a fantastic opener. Other highlights included the oricchiette with rapini and sausage, and the Bronzino.

As always, delicious. My seafood risotto was scrumptious and the hamachi artichoke appetizer delightful. Great drinks, too. Service friendly and unobtrusive. Only wish they would consider a change in music, maybe something more like Sinatra, Tony Bennett (must be just us old folks). Otherwise, highly recommend.
