Vincent's Restaurant Review

: Vincent’s, owned by the Mandola family, shares a sunny courtyard that houses an outdoor gelato bar. Its interior is done in a rustic Italian style with comfortable rooms, and a wood-burning open oven handles dozens of rotisserie chickens, a house specialty. Start with the crab claws, drenched in lemon butter garlic sauce, an appetizer that's enough for two to three diners. Then move on to the spinach sautéed in olive oil and more garlic, and for an entrée, the lasagna, which may be the best in town. A lovely wine list and full wine bar add to the dining experience, and so does the dessert cart with Italian cream pastries.
