Vincenza & Margherita Italian-American Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Everything from the cocktails to the appetizer to the main meal and the dessert was excellent. The homemade pasta really was delightful. The chocolate dessert was decadent. Special thanks to Eric because the service was excellent. he was knowledgeable about the menu and made awesome recommendations.
This family owned tiny little gem has outstanding food, a lovely atmosphere and the service can't be beat. There is a feeling of family here, the owners visit the tables to chad and make sure you are totally satisfied. Plus it is SUPER clean, even the restrooms and that's very important to me.
Disappointed with the tomatoes in the salad. This time of year I would expect local, fresh tomatoes. Also, they need to find someway to muffle the noise. It was very difficult to hear around the table without shouting. You need to add a 5th Noise Level - "Too Noisy"
Excellent food and very nice family. V&M's mom spent quite a bit of time talking to us - she is a very, very nice person. We enjoyed her company. Gnocchi and Agnolotti where wonderful. Very professional cocktails. Highly recommend.
First time for lunch. Special menu good idea. I ordered chicken picatta entrée that came with hand made spaghetti. Delicious but was told no side salad available except with lunch special combo. Seemed odd but in the end they served a lovely side salad with fresh mixed lettuce greens. Excellent accommodation to make me very happy. My sister enjoyed her birthday lunch special combo. Special day indeed! Pricey but very good Italian fare.
Friendly and attentive staff compliment the stellar hand crafted pastas from the open kitchen in this charming neighborhood go-to spot. You don't feel like you are eating out as much as you feel like you are dining with friends in their kitchen. Sampled a two appetizers (Arracini and the calamari) and both sparkled with old world presentation and taste. All three of us ordered pasta dishes (when in Rome!) and they were absolutely spot-on. Personally I recommend the agnolotti - a generous portion of delicate pasta pillows stuffed with complete meat & cheese goodness in a rich white truffle cream sauce. Delish!
The food is very good, but pricey. A 3 person meal tab came to $170!!! with 2 individual glasses of wine and no desert. The caprese salad was anemic at best and overpriced, a pasta seafood dish was enjoyable but again overpriced for what it was. It is really a shame it is so pricey, because it is a beautiful, relaxed dining area and the service is very capable and friendly. Perhaps it explains why the place was so lightly attended on a Saturday night.
Saw this restaurant on Open Table and TripAdvisor. It was a little way from our hotel, but well worth it. Erik took very good care of us and every dish from zuppe to dessert was delicious. Beans and greens soup was very good. Pasta dishes and gnocchi were all homemade and wonderful. Highly recommend the cannoli to finish the meal. Wine list has $100 Duck Horn and Cakebread to $25 very good Italian. We were there on a slower Tuesday night. The bar was full, but we were the lucky recipients of a loaf of house made bread for the road. We'd definitely recommend this local gem.
