Very disappointing. Lamp chops were overcooked tasted like shoe leather. Bronzino was undercooked. One entree came 20 minutes after the other two. Was visiting our daughter from Westlake Village, definitely will not go back.

The food was delicious and unique. We had the 3 pastas including the rabbit pasta special, which was sooo good. The service was wonderful, you can tell they’re a restaurant with regulars, they make everyone feel like family.

Despite requirements due to the COVID-19 pandemic (outdoor dining), the food was delicious and the service fabulous under the conditions (very windy and cool - fortunately they placed a space heater next to us).

Due to the Pandemic, the dinner was served outdoors on table on the sidewalk. Traffic on San Vicente Blvd was noisy and it was a fairly cold evening. The food was excellent (salad, pizza, and a puff pastry like a deconstructed Napoleon. The service was also excellent. Given the limitations imposed by the pandemic, we felt that the dinner was as good as could be expected.

Vincent I is a SoCal treasure. I am amazed and astounded at the fact that so many people walk past arguably the finest Italian food on the Westside, to get food 2 doors down at the hipster Jon & Vinny’s.

Vincenti is a classic! The food is over the top amazing! I think Nicola is the best Italian chef in Los Angeles. The service is great, good wines, perfect cocktails from Micheal the bartender and the new sidewalk al fresco dining is like being in Rome. Cheers to a faboulous restaurant and staff. It's a must for any foodie!

We went to Vincenti to celebrate our anniversary. It is the first restaurant that we have been to since the Covid 19 lockdown. As always every dish was amazing. I could not even tell you whose was better. Being outside as its disadvantages by the odd street person but it was well worthwhile to enjoy the hospitality & food.

The restaurant is first class. The food is divine and the service beyond professional. The atmosphere is very good and the lady who owns the restaurant Maureen goes over and beyond to make you feel welcome. It is one of the best restaurants in California.

Thank you

After many years of enjoyment at Vincenti, we were disappointed with last Tuesday’s experience. The waiter did not know the pricing of some of the specials. Three of the four of us had the family meal. The salad was ordinary. The tortellini was delicious. The rack of lamb was very disappointing. There was little flavor; we ordered the lamb medium rare, but it came undercooked; and it was greasy. Finally, we had an affigato for dessert; there was little espresso, and the vanilla ice cream was not rich and creamy and had ice crystals. The ice cream tasted as though it had been in the glass for several hours rather than having been scooped for serving to us. When we complained to the waiter about the dessert, he shrugged and did not adjust the check. Of course, he didn’t care as there was a flat 18% service charge on the check. Finally, when I pay these prices the meal should have been much, much more satisfying.

On a busy night, with the restaurant full of A-list celebrities, the staff of Vincenti didn't miss a beat. Everything was prepared and served to perfection, Top items included the beet salad and diver's scallop appetizer and gnocchi, risotto and paccheri as good as if they had come from the best trattorie in Italia, Bravi, ancora!!!!

The restaurant was empty the host wanted to seat us at a smallish table for 2table for two which was very small. I requested a larger table because my dinner date is a big robust man. They suggested a table in the back room, I asked if we could we sit in the main dining room since the restaurant was empty. it took about five minutes before we got an approval to sit in the front part of the restaurant. Our dinner took about an hour and a half, when we left the restaurant they were still empty tables in the main dining room. I don’t understand why it was such a big deal to sit at a table for four, especially since the restaurant was not fully booked.

We were a party of six that was seated in the back room, which was purported to be much quieter than the main room, only to find that there was a group of sixteen celebrating at an unacceptable decibel level, in the small room. Hard to talk without shouting. Hard on a mature group.
