Not only is the food amazing at Vincenti but so is John. Vincenti was just named number 7 in the ""75 Best Restaurants in Los Angeles"" issue of Los Angeles Magazine and Number 1 in the article ?The 20 Best Italian Restaurants in Los Angeles? written by Jonathan Gold for LA Weekly. There is no place like it outside of Italy. I have to completely disagree with the reviewer about John. I mentioned to a friend recently that John was working at Vincenti and his comment was ?having John run your dining room would be like having Picasso paint your living room?. We all love John, Maureen and the staff at Vincenti.

Easily the best Italian restaurant in the city. Chef Nicola's menu is the most modern interpretation of classic Italian cuisine. His fish are all incredible. Don't skip the pasta or risotto...perfectly sauced, perfectly al dente. I've even seen Giorgio Baldi and other restaurateurs here on Mondays when their own places are closed. Maureen is warm and so hospitable, and honestly seems to care about her clients. Unlike the other poster, I find John at the door really gracious and professional, constantly looking to enhance the diner's experience. The rest of the staff is attentive without being stuffy. Pizza on Monday is the best in town...crisp, charred crust, thin and topped with great ingredients like burrata and zucchini flowers. Love eating at the bar. The bartenders are friendly and pour an amazing martini. Best bet for friends in town from Italy or New York. Never Disappoints!

We have been devoted regulars of Vincente since as long as we can remember. Even if the food wasn't always perfect, but always well above average, we did not notice or care because of the warmth received from Maureen and her loyal staff. I don't know if it's because of a change in management but the last couple of times we have visited Vincente it just did not have that welcoming feel. We walked in the door both times to be greeted, rather uncomfortably, by a stiff and slightly snobbish middle age gentlemen. I do not know if he is new management or just a host but his attitude seemed to infect the whole restaurant. Even our normally witty and bubbly waitress seemed to be working at attention. That being said, the food remained consistent. Any of the fresh pasta's are a must try and the perfectly cooked dover sole or branzino are both light enough to eat as a main course while still having room for dessert.

Delicious food, great service. It was not crowded so I did not notice the noise issue that other reviewers mentioned. We had the duck appetizer, lamb, steak, and pasta with mushrooms and crab. Mille feuille was amazing. The cannoli dessert was good, but not my favorite. If you get there early, there is street parking. Next time I think I will try the $75 six course tasting menu.

Consistently perfect in every category...Pizza is the BEST -- light and AUTHENTIC like the pizza you get in italy. Also, I was not a big fan of seafood until i tried vincenti's amazing seafood salads, lobster pastas, WOW. Everything is good.
Fun crowds are always gathering and I've seen many stars hiding in here...(nice bar crowd)
This place has a lot of history, and is friendly to all ages. Maureen Vincenti is always there to welcome you in with open arms, while master chef nicola is busy behind the glass wall maintaining the perfection that comes out from the kitchen.
You can watch the chefs in action while you eat!!!! Wood burning stove creates a warm ambiance...
i am in love with vincenti's.

The place is more of a scene due to the location that a restaurant for a serious meal. The food is average, but the price attached is outrageous. The service comes with attitude. To top it of the place gets so loud that you cannot hear anything. You can do much better with Italian food in the city.

Went on a Saturday night. Vincenti was the best italian I've had in a long time. I liked La Terza, but this place was 10 times better. The host was warm and friendly. The service was excellent. It's hard to get great service in LA with its trendy restaurants, but I must say that everything our waiter recommended was truly superb. The place is crowded and bustling but they are extremely acommodating. Wine list had some excellent picks. Fish was fresh, wild caught, and imported from the Med with creative sauces/seasonings. If you like Seafood or Classic Italian, I highly recommend Vincenti.
