Vincent's Italian Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Vincent’s ambience recalls the intimate Italian spots in Greenwich Village and downtown Chicago. The space is tight, but the bar is comfortable and inviting. This family-run, family-friendly suburban restaurant works hard to send every guest home fat and happy. 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 bread sticks. House specialties include chowder-like corn-and-crab bisque and cannelloni; we also like the lasagna. It could be argued that you have not experienced an authentic bracialoni (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. Also located at 4411 Chastant St., Metairie, 504-885-2984.
