Hands down, Vincenti remains one of the very best Italian restaurants in LA. It has been around for years, but there is nothing stodgy about it. Creative cuisine, great service.

It's not exactly crunch time in the restaurant business (unfortunately for those deserving and persevering souls), so the noise level may have been unusually low. For us, that's ideal. Noise ruins digestion.

The food is distinctive: flavorful, inventive, and well-presented. It's not Rex, the predecessor to Vincenti until Mauro died, but it carries on the tradition fairly well. The range of options is sure to suit just about anyone's palate, though the wine list skews well above our pay grade (maybe Brentwood residents consider the cost of a bottle pocket money, but most people... probably don't).

Desserts were phenomenal. Truly.

The only annoyance was the mandatory 18% service charge... which isn't the tip. If a restaurant wants to pay its staff more, raise the prices on the menu. It's a simple remedy that doesn't make a patron feel skewered.

Amazing food! Unbelievable that they can make a simple salad taste that good! Tricolore salad with pistachios was perfectly dressed and amazing taste combination. The sea bass was next level brilliant as was the freshly made Fusilli.
The server was attentive and knowledgeable. The hostess welcoming and kind. Absolutely would eat here again and again. Highly recommend.

The chicken cacciatore and the roasted sonoma duck where tender and delicious. However the noise level was unacceptable and I was charged 16% service charge and was told it was to cover the cooking staff. Otherwise the food was truly amazing.

Was not advised that they add an 18% service charge. An additional charge on top of a gratuity.

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.

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..

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.

We were expecting the food to be delicious but it was far from it. The food was so salty and was some of the worst pasta I have ever eaten. It was a birthday celebration and nothing was done as other restaurants. We ordered the cookies which appeared to come out of a box and again were not good. Only four small cookies for $7. There was no parking and parking on the street was hard to find. The restaurant only had a few people and the owner seemed annoyed and had an arrogant attitude with customers making them wait for tables when many were available. There was an 18% surcharge in addition to the expectation of a tip which was not known prior to dining or on the website. All in all it was an extremely disappointing and expensive dinner and we were so sorry to have chosen this restaurant.

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.
