Very surprising find, given the tourist-saturated location. Bartender Rob is great - will guide you through the menu flawlessly. This food is very fresh, and expertly prepared. I have already recommended to several folks since we dined last week.

A very nice independent restaurant separated from all the Chain stuff on International Drive. Smaller restaurant and not crazy. Authentic Italian. Prices are reasonable. Very good food, helpful wait staff on the wine list. I would dine here again.

A Trip To Italy (Authentic Italian Feast Right Here In Orlando)
You walk into a Welcoming Atmosphere of Refined Italian Hospitality Only Exceeded by a staff poised to give you a rare dining adventure.
We started off with FRITTO MISTO (Calamari, Shrimp & Scallops with Stuffed Cherry Peppers) AWESOME! Watch out for the Peppers HOT!!!
We had Lasagna and Chicken Parmigiana BOTH with a wonderful marinara sauce Vincenzo serves that is robust, while not acidic a profound treat for the palate.
Chef Vincenzo is terrific great host and ready to accommodate to ensure your visit is a True Culinary Delight from Start to Finish. We took our friends there for dinner and our friend really enjoys spaghetti with meat sauce, when we made the reservation Chef Vincenzo offered to make him a special meat sauce which he indeed did and it made our friends birthday dinner profoundly special. Vincenzo's now has 2 more supporters.
In times where many people don't fulfill their promises Chef Vincenzo does...Bravo!!!
We go here whenever we can and never disappointed and we will be back.
We eat out 5 nights a week and have tried most of the notable Italian Restaurants in Orlando and do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this truly amazing experience.

Went to Vincenzo Cucina for a birthday celebration. The food was outstanding! From the appetizers (Fritto Misto) to the entrees its was amazing. Great service - pastas were fresh and delicious - favorites of the evening were the Lobster ravioli and Penne with Salmon! Tiramisu was so light and delicious!

Absolutely wonderful! I'm so glad I discovered this place on Tripadvisor! The owner was extremely friendly, proud of her restaurant and it showed! I appreciate her taking the time to share her expansive Italian wines with me. The bartender was very attentive and understood I wanted a special Italian wine. I felt like I was back in Italy! The pappardelle and Wildboar was delicious and my fiancé was extremely impressed with the Tiramisu . They make their own limoncello and they have complimentary valet parking. I only wish we had a restaurant like this in Greenville, South Carolina. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!

LOVED this restaurant. Thanks OpenTable for another great find! DO NOT let the fact that this restaurant is located in a strip mall deter you. Cannot understand why this place isn't jumping. . Food is outstanding and service impeccable. Kudos to the chef and staff.
Would not miss the opportunity to visit this restaurant again when in the Disney area. Highly recommend the veal parmigiana, pasta with vegetables and pasta with sausage. Pappardelle is homemade so grab the opportunity. Kiddies loved the penne pasta in butter. Salads were fresh and antipasto delicious. And the bread YUM. Absolutely some of the best Italian food to be had. Thumbs up all the way!!!

We had a college graduation celebration there and food was awesome and all eleven in our party raved about their food for days and our servers were great especially Arnold who was very attentive and enjoyable. We will be returning
We had the Osso Bucco style Stinco (pork shank). Quite good and a substantial portion.
The restaurant has a very nice Italian appetizer, pasta and entree menu.
Most importantly it is quite authentic Italian. Not easy to find in Florida.
Most Italian is terrible down here (especially tomato based sauces).

We had a fantastic dinner here while on a Disney trip. We're used to being disappointed with Italian restaurants, but this was authentic and all our dishes were perfectly prepared. Mussels appetizer was great, not overdone with a light, broth-like tomato sauce. The vegetable antipasto was excellent. Gnocchi were so light and the tomato sauce was fresh & delicious. Two of us had the seafood pasta special which was incredible, coming with cuttlefish (similar to calamari), octopus & shrimp in a light cream sauce made with puréed mussels. Sounds crazy but was fantastic!
Service was excellent, and the ambiance very pleasant. We will definitely be back.

Great experience! In the middle of a string of chain restaurants we found this locally owned and operated ItalIan restaurant. The food and atmosphere was excellent!! Prices were very reasonable!! We will definitely be back!!
Decent food and reasonable prices
Not the best Italian restaurant I've experienced but decent meal at fair prices. Meatball appetizer is worth a try. Pasta Fagioli was not to my liking as it was too soupy for me. I personally like a thicker and heartier recipe. Service was terrific. Atmosphere
A lovely Evening - good food, drink and ervice.
Menu has many great Italian dishes. We truly enjoyed our meal - quality and quantity. I had the veal chop and that was outstanding. My husband had the Lasagna and he was more than pleased. The Crème Brulee was delightful. The staff works as a team. Although we ha a main server, everyone was available to assist. It was a lovely evening.
great food, seating could be better
The food was amazing! Just a couple of issues... One being they seated us in the very back of the restaurant and appeared to seat the back first working towards the front, which doesn't make any sense because you would think you want people to see people in the restaurant. We were there early 6:30 p.m. and even had reservations. Then there was no Coke or Pepsi soda in the restaurant for my husbands birthday drink. Waiter not only asked him to choose something else but charged for it too. Still the fettuccine was delicious.
Memorable last dinner in Orlando
This restaurant was not our first choice, but due to last minute reservations, we decided to try this one out and we were not disappointed. From appetizers to dessert, everything was fresh and delicious. We will definitely be coming back to Vincenzo's. Thank you for a wonderful meal!

Started the meal with the best pasta Fagiola soup I ever had. Next the gnocchi were absolutely delicious. The fettuccine was very good. Did not like the meatballs that were home made since did not taste like mama's. The bread was also delicious.
Good food, bad service
Very rude hostess!! We waited at the host stand for at least 5 minutes without any attention; finally I called the restaurant I was standing in to get someone to even come help us. And even with a reservation and empty (unbussed) tables around, we waited 30+ minutes to be seated
Old world charm
Great food in an old world feel establishment. The service was wonderful from the minute we walked in. Much of the wait staff appeared to be gentlemen from Italy. The menu has a wide variety and goes beyond the staples of lasagna and spaghetti with meatballs. The prices reflect the nicer atmosphere and level of service provided, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. If you don't mind paying more for a better experience and excellent food, definitely give this place a try.
Great food and professional service. Whallah
Four of us visited on our last night in Orlando and this by far was the best food and service. Our waiter was charming, witty, knowledgeable and capable. He made the whole dining experience an event. The food was outstanding, well-prepared and perfectly served. I had the whole fish and it was fileted and de-boned tableside perfectly. We chose this restaurant based on Open Table reviews and we were not misled. One of our favorites. We will be back next year.
