Vincenzo's Italian Restaurant Restaurant Review: Vincenzo's is one of the last restaurants in the city where waiters are formally clad, but customers never feel less than warmly welcomed. The spacious dining room doubles as an art museum with classical oil paintings, modern sculptures, and a map of Italy that occupies the largest wall. Dishes prepared tableside include Caesar salad and fresh seafood. Order chef Agostino Gabriele’s eponymous crêpes made with veal, chicken and beef. His brother Vincenzo greets guests and lends his hand tableside. Menu highlights include salmon with Champagne dill cream sauce, veal saltimbocca, and the herb-encrusted rack of lamb scented with rosemary. No one will look askance if you yield to the temptation to have a double portion of the baked artichoke appetizer stuffed with crab and scallops dressed in a lime hollandaise as your entrée. Request the dessert soufflé (flavors change) when you order dinner. The wine list is heavily Italian. There is a three-course pre-theatre/pre-opera menu, too.
