Poor service. Rushed us. Wanted to take our dinner order before our drink order.... didn't tell us the specials. The sauce on the lasagna and chicken parm was bland. Really bad experience for Valentines Day and the hostess was rude...... kind of sad. I recognized her from pictures on the wall as part of the owners family.

This place was absolutely AWFUL! I didn't know how busy they weren't and made a reservation. The hostess laughed in my face for reserving a table, which was very rude. As soon as we sat down outside I regretted it. The place next door had some awful loud music BLASTING and I got a headache from it. The food was horrendous, as well. I got the lasagne that tasted like it came out of a can. I'd never recommend this place; I'm not even sure how they're still open.

Two evening prior to dinning at VCI he we went to Ciao Italiano Ristorante. I was told you are part of the same ownership? The food was remarkable--the service, second to non and the entire meal at the restaurant was enjoyable. Our dinner tab for 9 people was over $800 and worth it!
Next--VCI served some of the worst food and poor service I've ever had! The bartender did not want to be working and if he's subs as the bouncer--I get it! We were assigned two waiter. One that took are orders and one that did not "talk"! The "head" waiter did not indicate an "issue" with the second waiter. Three times we signaled for the second waiter only to have a "hand" in the air--like "stop" and we will be with you LATER!!! No one at the restaurant indicated he was special in any way. The first waiter rarely had drinks on the table. We ordered apps that came out at two separate times. (we ordered all the apps together and then four plates came out and then 10 minutes later the other apps came to the table. My bone in veal shank was so tuff I ate possibly 5 bites off it. Other meals were cold, not done and the last meal came out at least 5 mintues OR MORE after the first meal was delivered. I hope we had an off day at your restaurant. The invoice that night for 12 of us was over $2K. I would never recommend VCI for any kind of party or event. One of the people in our party was from the Orlando area and you will not be receiving any positive reviews.

I'm Italian and I can say that the restaurant is a very traditional Italian one. The food is amazing. The ambient is quite. The only thing that I didn't like so much was the server, he didn't talk to us, he was cold. I like having a friendly server, it would be better. The price is good, very cheap!! Compliments

Visited this Family owned restaurant in Orlando and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it!! Great wine list! Nice seating outside!
Only downside was since it was a little busy, our waiter was a bit slow and forgetful.
But all in all it was a great dinner! Lovely people and tasty food!

Went to a late dinner here on a Saturday night. Food was amazing, all fresh from the pasta to the bread, it's all made in house. Our waiter John was just great and very knowledgeable. He made wine recommendations and brought me a sample. OssoBucco was the special and it was phenomenonal!! Veal for $26, and fresh made pasta, a rare find! Made my husband chicken piccatta which wasn't even on the menu. You must visit!!

We had a lovely experience dining on a quiet Wednesday night. Our server John was very helpful with menu items, & had some great recommendations for wine, also. We were very happy with our meal, especially the octopus appetizer.

We had a Christmas Eve dinner at Vincenzo Cucina Italiano, and it was very pleasant, relaxed, and tasty. Our waiter was engaging and knowledgeable, and guided us through the menu with helpful suggestions. The carpaccio appetizer was excellent. The pear salad was a nice change from the usual choices. We had the house special of a seafood fettucini with a cream sauce enhanced with Gran Marnier, and we also chose the short ribs with celery root puree- both had unusual twists from the classic recipes that made the meal special with memorable sauces and flavorings. We finished our meal with a house version of Tiramisu that was very good. In all- a very nice experience.

Just average. Service, below expectations (maybe because the host sat us - a 2 top- on a 6 top). Food was really good though, the location is great and the prices are very reasonable. Not a place for a special occasion.

The gnocchi was the best I have had since traveling to Italy! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Due to the high quality, the food is relatively high priced but there were families and groups in the restaurant so the high price point did not make it seem stuffy. We will keep it in mind for our next date night!

I'm Italian, from a family of great italian cooks. I moved down from new jersey three years ago, and this place remains my absolute favorite italian restaurant in Orlando. It contends with the great Italian places I used to eat at in NYC, and remains the only great Italian restaurant in Orlando.

This is one of the best Italian restaurants in the Orlando area. I would go there all the time if I lived closer to International Drive.
Vincenzo's is easy to find, as it is almost right next door to the Orlando Eye. Your money would be better spent at Vincenzo's!

Absolutely love this place, the food has always been amazing. We love to sit at the bar and the bartenders have always been very friendly, informative and have helped us with picking out some of our favorite entrees, wines and mixed drinks.

This place is just wonderful. Food, service and atmosphere. We had been looking for a family owned true Italian restaurant in Orlando. We found it!! Freshest Caesar salad that is lightly dressed, Lobster Ravioli with Shrimp cream sauce is so tender and perfect Farfalle with Shrimp and clams!!! Buon Appetite

We decided to try this restaurant for Magical dining. We were seated immediately upon arrival and given menus but no one came back for almost 15 minutes after that. The waiter did come back to take our order and I pointed out that we hadn't been offered drinks yet.
We finally got everything ordered and our drinks. The appetizers were very good but the seafood lasagna they were offering for Magical dining was not good at all, although we had to tell a different waiter this since our waiter was missing in action.
We sent the lasagna plate back, but by the time a new dish was brought out two of us had finished our meals entirely so the timing was not good for the third diner, the replacement meal was a filet with mashed potatoes and it doesn't take 20 minutes to cook one of those. The restaurant did seem short staffed that night so maybe that was the problem.
