Vincent's still serves the best Italian food in New Orleans in a romantic atmosphere. Everything Vincent prepares is wonderful. We enjoyed several of the soup offerings (crayfish season) and were tempted by the beautiful softshell crabs that are just coming into season. Vincent constantly circulates through the restaurant and kitchen, watching for anything that could make the dining experience better.... More

This restaurant has a terrific corn and crabmeat bisque that is served in a scooped out loaf of fresh bread. It is outstanding! The only problem is that there are so many wonderful dishes on the menu that you may have trouble deciding what to eat. Parking can be difficult but come early and you can beat the crowd because...

I just love this place. Small, quaint location right off Esplanade in Metairie specializing in Italian cuisine. The food was awesome and the service was great. The servers were really busy but still managed to frequently check on us. They allowed us to stay and visit for over 2 hours even tho we had finished our meal. Even gave us.... More

I am drop dead serious here, I got teary eyed. I lost my Mi Mi in 2012, and since then I have missed more than ever her braciole. Being Sicilian, we are picky when it comes to our cuisine, and will gladly rip to shreds anyone who messes it up. This braciole reminded me of hers almost to perfection. The... More

My wife and I along with another couple had dinner this past weekend here. The waiter promptly took our orders. We each ordered the corn and crab bisque. The waiter brought only 3 servings and we thought that the other one was still to come. NO SUCH LUCK! After being ignored for 5-6 minutes, my wife got up and spoke... More

Great meal in authentic and friendly surroundings. Oyster casserole appetizer was a great start. Veal Roberto with lump crabmeat was superb as was the Parmesan-crusted (not overly crusted but grilled beautifully) Redfish. Nathan was a great server and Vincent comes by to say hi and check on things.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. He loves the veal parmesan here. I love the crab cakes. The food is consistently very good. Nice for a romantic dinner.
