Vincent's Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Old school charm and a consistently good menu---in a tourist-packed destination, no less---make this century-old Italian eatery a beloved institution. Order pasta dishes with Vincent's famous sauce, which is a tomato sauce that can be ordered sweet, medium or hot. Or try the stuffed peppers when it's on special. Shrimp, scungilli, calamari, soft-shell crabs and gamberi all get the royal treatment from chefs. Other intriguing dishes include the many combination plates, like mussels and scallops or calamari, shrimp and soft shell crab. The wine, too, is as unpretentious as the food. Crown your meal with a fresh cannoli and an espresso.
