Since 1997 Vincenti Ristorante has combined sophistication and elegance with warmth and comfort. Maureen Vincenti welcomes you at the door and there is not a bad seat in the house with Master Chef Nicola Mastronardi providing your entertainment visible from nearly every seat in the dining room. Chef Mastronardi's cuisine emphasizes freshness and his menus change seasonally. In addition to our regular menu, Chef Nicola prepares a special daily “Menu Degustazione,” a 6 course tasting menu designed to heighten your culinary senses. While some ingredients are imported directly from Italy, others are sourced from the finest local producers. Service is professional yet casual.

Extremely overpriced, the dish my friend ordered was so salty it was inedible, and when I asked for a side of parmesan for the pasta I ordered, I was refused by the waiter because I was told you weren't supposed to eat cheese with seafood dishes. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

Simply one of the best spots in L.A. hands down! Don't tell anyone. Let them go to Jon and Vinny's next door.

The food was pricey but not special. The ambience was nice but not special. Our server was nice but not special. I had a reservation. The restaurant was not full. On the way back to our table I asked if the four of us could sit at a booth table set for five. The hostess said this was for a larger party. 10 minutes after we were seated she sat four people at the table I had asked about. She had not said that this table had been requested by someone else just that it was for a larger party than our 4. Hmm.....

was disappointed that our request for a table in the front room (with tablecloths) was ignored. this didn't spoil an otherwise excellent dinner, but it was disappointing.

An excellent meal for the family style dinner; truly excellent; but by 8:30 the noise on a Friday evening was a bit too much. Food excellent although by 8:30 a negroni took 20 min. To arrive.

Vincenti is better than ever. The restaurant looks terrific, the management are doing their
best to provide a fine dining experience.

Rception and wait staff are always most welcoming and eager to please.

The menu has many delicious options, so we were all very happy with our choices.

Many "specials" so don't order until you chat with your waitperson. Everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. Service couldn't have been better. Not too noisy.

We had not been to Vincenti for several years. We found the food excellent, had a great table and were treated like old friends.

We will plan on going back.

This is the truly sophisticated stylish choice on the Westside of LA. Few Italian restaurants have this level of contemporary style and consistently high standards. The food is superb. Service is flawless. You can dine here once a week and never use up the good choices.

Better than ever with Maureen and Nicola in absolute top form. 15 years later still Brentwood’s best kept secret. Come earlier if you want a crowd, come later if you want a bit more quiet. A+ on all fronts. We’ll be back.

Monday night is Pizza night! Along side their regular menu. But some times it you get some surprises if you trust the chef and ask for the specials of the evening... We started with the Pizza Bianca then had some items off their specials of the night like Asparagus Soup (dairy free-just blended/emulsified to a thickness that replicated a cream based soup) topped with Shitake and assorted White Mushrooms; an amazing c
old Gazpacho soup with fresh Lobster and Microgreens; Stuffed Zucchini Flowers accented with a light Fresh Tomato Sauce: and for a main course Veal Picata with a Lemon Caper Sauce, fresh Sauted Spinach and Whipped Potatoes. From the main menu my guest had the New York Steak with Black Truffles and Roasted Potatoes.
A perfect, delicious meal with good wines, good company and the hospitality of owner Maureen Vincenti and her staff.

What a lovely restaurant. I brought two sisters from Mount Saint Mary's University down for a special supper and this was the perfect choice.

Excellent pasta, all dished ordered were very well done and fresh.

The owner graciously stopped by to welcome us.

The food is wonderful but extremely expensive. When the credit card receipt was presented, there was no indication that service was included. It was only in reviewing the bill in detail (because it was so expensive!) that I noticed that 18% service had been charged.

Overall the food was good. The service was a little shakey and the noise level is very high. The bar seems like a great place for happy hour.

Issue; Vincenti has a mandatory 18% service charge or 'tip' added to your bill. While we dined at the bar this was not disclosed and we gallantly tossed our credit cards to cover a dinner and bar tab. Unaware, and because the credit card receipt has a gratuity line, we all tipped twice or roughly now a 40% tip. Not a big fan of mandatory tipping and, if a restaurant has it, at least inform us or remove the gratuity line from the bill. This new policy forced tipping will be the kiss of death for what was once great service.

It was my first time there, but not my date's. She was welcomed with open arms; I was introduced as a friend, and was greeted with warmth and enthusiasm. The dining rooms is gorgeous. We had drinks to start, and they had the Scottish gin I wanted for my martini. The server came by with the specials, all of which seemed wonderful, but we both ordered from the menu. We shared a fabulous octopus (which my date never ate before), and I had lamb and she had salmon. The wine by the glass list was small, but it was sufficient. The wine was quite good. Desserts sounded great, but we decided to pass. On the whole, it was a tremendous dinner, and I look forward to going back again.
