Vincent's Italian Cuisine Restaurant Review: Vincent’s food and atmosphere recall a retro, nostalgic era when super-thick tomato sauces, recognizable pasta shapes and straw-wrapped Chianti bottles defined Italian restaurants in the U.S. Founded in 1989, this family-run, family-friendly suburban establishment pretends to few aspirations aside from sending every guest home fat and happy. Specialties include chowder-like corn and crab bisque served in a bread bowl, house-made cannelloni stuffed with veal and spinach, and dark-red tomato “gravy” saturated with garlic. If you want to know what authentic Italian lasagna is supposed to look and taste like, Vincent’s has the answer. The wine list is respectable, with a number of bottles coming in at under $30. Good luck trying to decide between the cannoli and gelati for dessert. Maybe both? A guitarist adds the note of classical Italian music to the atmosphere Wednesdays and Thursdays.
