Italian
Vincent’s Italian Cuisine was founded in 1989 by native New Orleanian Vincent Catalanotto. From a large, close Sicilian family, Vincent grew up eating wonderful food prepared by his parents who were both great cooks. Vincent learned to love and appreciate food at an early age, and then spent most of his life working in the service industry, fueling his passion for the restaurant business while allowing him to hone his innate ability to create fabulous meals and to make people happy. His years of experience as a waiter convinced him that people like to eat food that is familiar, but which has a spark of uniqueness about it. Vincent opened the first of his successful neighborhood restaurants in 1989. The “little Italian place on the side street” quickly became Metairie’s hidden jewel.

The food is always top notch. No need to go to downtown New Orleans to eat great food. Just stay in Metairie. Wonderful seafood, Italian and even the Seafood stuffed pork chop are excellent. Thanks Vincent!

My family goes to Vincent's 2 times/year to celebrate certain occasions. I order the same thing everytime. I received my food and the quantity was cut by 33%. It used to be 3 stuffed shrimp in pastry and now it's only 2. No reduction at all in price and I left hungry! This restaurant is in the high end of $$$ (that's why we only go for special occasions) but to pay $$$ and leave hungry?? We won't be back. Also, did not receive good service at all from the waiter (the kids who assist were awesome though!!).

Awesome!! The Cannelloni was the BEST I ever had and we are from an Italian family. My husband had the Bracialoni, it was good but the veal was a bit dry. We did not order desert but a little "to go" box with a lovely piece of chocolate cake came with the check. It was a sweet reminder of a wonderful meal when we got back to our hotel. Service was attentive even with a large family gathering being served at the same time. Would almost make a special 3 hour drive just to get the cannelloni!!! Try Vincent's - you will not be disappointed.

Vincent's is the real deal took some colleges there for a business dinner and everything was fabulous. If you are looking for Authentic food and great ambiance look no further. Try the veal marsala, in bone steak app, and the bread pudding was awesome.

Good food but Americanized versions of Italian and too much reliance on cream in sauces where it is not traditionally used, like cream in a piccata sauce!

waiter was excellent but stretched out. too many tables for him to work efficiently. FOOD WAS EXCELLENT AT ALL PLATES!!!. BEEN THERE BEFORE AND IT'S ALWAYS BEEN GOOD FOOD. ambiance was better than most but definitely not elegant. but I don't go there for elegance, i go for the food. Great place for casual dining with great food. Excellent varied menu. some of the best crab cakes I've ever had. usually always get the italian food of some type, decided to try something different this time. cakes were better than most seafood restaurants. good quantity of real crab meat to stuffing. I do recommend them to friends all the time.

Everything was absolutely wonderful and delicious! It was a first time visit for all of us and we would all agree that it would be worth driving miles and miles to dine here again!
