Vincent's Italian Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Vincent’s ambience recalls the cozy Italian spots in Greenwich Village or downtown Chicago. Super-thick tomato sauces, or “red gravy,” as New Orleanians call it, enrobes recognizable pastas, and tables come bedecked with straw-wrapped Chianti bottles as well as the slightly addictive herbed breadsticks. This family-run, family-friendly suburban restaurant works hard to send every guest home fat and happy. House specialties include chowder-like corn-and-crab bisque and house-made cannelloni; we also like the lasagna. It could be argued that you have not experienced an authentic bracialoni (baby veal stuffed with artichoke hearts, bacon, garlic and Parmesan, baked and finished with a red sauce) until you’ve had it at Vincent’s. Good luck trying to decide between the house-made cannoli and gelato for dessert. There are a number of wine selections that come in under $30. Plan to wait in cramped quarters or outside for a table most nights, but just know the people-watching is first-rate. The space is tight, but the intimate bar is comfortable and inviting. Also located at 4411 Chastant St., Metairie, 504-885-2984.
