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.

Was in Louisiana for some business and decided to try different restaurants. I enjoyed the meal and I do go to a lot of dining, and overall I would say Vincents was an awesome place to try out, the food was great, I loved the ambiance, and the reception.

We ordered an item which was supposed to be crab and oysters. It came out with crab and shrimp. We told the waiter and he said "that's the way the chef did it" When the bill came I asked for a menu and pointed out the error again to the waiter. The manager finally took off one entree.

Valentine’s Day lunch was a very busy time for this restaurant. Waiters and Waitresses were hustling but needed extra backup. Once we were served, the food was delicious.

Our flight out was cancelled so we stayed out near the airport and found this gem. Due to the early flight the next morning, we got there right at 5 and Vincent greeted us at the door and immediately made us feel right at home. The food was outstanding and the cannoli was THE best ever! We will definitely go back if given the opportunity!

Food was delicious, service was impeccable. A bit noisy when we arrived, but there was a large party finishing dinner. After that, quite delightful.
Will recommend and go again. Salmon was fantastic as were the escargot.

Our reservation was for 7:15. We arrived at 7 and could barely get into the front door. There were several people waiting and the place is very small. We were seated about 20 minutes after we arrived at a makeshift table with a dirty tablecloth. It was evident this table was not ready for us. We asked to be moved and were told there were no other options for us. I have never been treated so rudely ever !!! The owner did not even care or apologize when we finally decided to leave

They were out of our original order. The server suggested a substitute without returning our menus and it wasn’t even close. Very rushed. Messed up check then copped an attitude when asked to redo it. Paid cash and he took it upon himself to keep the change which was more than customary. Didn’t offer desert or coffee. This was a Christmas lunch. Disappointed

Several of our guests had never been to the restaurant before and they were amazed. All 10 of us including our babies enjoyed our time at Vincent’s. Truly a great meal and our birthday girl who is 84 and had never been or heard of Vincent’s enjoyed the meal. Thanks it was great

We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation time, waited over 20 minutes for our table & left without ever being seated. We were only a party of 2. It seems management was more concerned with seating larger parties even thought we had made reservations 5 days in advance of our date.
