Pros: authentic food, good prices, friendly owner and waitstaff

Everything at Vincenzo's is delicious, but in particular the Pollo/Chicken Mediterraneo with the spinach and the lemon sauce and potatoes. It's crazy good! The only dish on the planet that I leave squeaky clean. Also the steak with garlic is super delicious, but you'll hear about your garlic breath for a few days after eating this. Vincenzo and everyone else at the restaurant are very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful dining experience. This place is a high end winner.

My family has been going to this restaurant for years. The couple who owns the place, run it and are there everyday. They are wonderful people and truly great company. This place is very small so all meals are very intimate, which is part of their appeal. As a corollary to the petite size, it is ahrd to get a table. One solution when trying to make a reservation is to give an Italian name because they love real Italians. All teh food is great and there is something for everyone. Someone in my family stopped eating carbs, but could still go here and have tons of choices! I recommend the penne with vodka sauce!

Pros: Ambiance, Authenticity, Service and Excellent Food

Granted, the ambiance at this cozy, intimate restaurant is great. One can get good wine and solid Italian food, but overall, the prices are WAY too high for what we were served. An artichoke salad (at about $13.00) had canned artichokes,

Simple, delicious Italian home-style fare, made with the best ingredients. Vincenzo will tell you personally that the melt-in-the-mouth Alaskan halibut done in the aqua pazza (white wine and olive oil) can only be had in Naples and at his
