I recently celebrated my 70th birthday in a private function room at De Vincenzo's. What an excellent experience! Although a little off the beaten route the setting is excellent - real Italian rustic feel to the place. They even have live chickens roaming the gardens. They provide a choice of meals ( not a carvery thank goodness). The option we... More

Popping in for a favorite dish is always something that we will do on an ad hoc basis . We absolutely love the Gorgonzola dish . We also tried the new starter platter which was awesome ! Looking forward to our next ad hoc visit .

Vincenzo creates a great atmosphere with the two large pizza ovens and all the food prepared fresh on the premises. Excellent and attentive staff. We have had some excellent business meetings, basic facilities with wonderful open fires in the winter.

We took my dad to Da Vincenzo for Fr's day lunch and it was a horrible experience: the lighting was not good, the food seemed delicious when we read the menu (which was made avaliable before the day), but when we actually saw it, I must say it did not match up. My family and I were starving before we... More

On June 11 we had occasion to celebrate our (Symbiotics Application Services) 20th birthday, a major accomplishment in anyone's language. From the moment we started planning our event with the able assistance of Carmen to enjoying the wonderful fare prepared by Vincenzo himself and finally saying goodbye to the manager of the day, Penny we couldn't have asked for more....

We went for a late mid-week lunch and you do not get a better setting to relax and have a quiet lunch. We sat outside and practically had the place to ourselves apart from the visit from the well behaved chickens and peacock. The menu is Italian but caters for all including a great selection of specials - all described... More

Once again we were not disappointed. We ordered the meals from the specials, the dishes were very tasty. One can also choose pasta or pizza from their standard menu. The service is friendly and efficient.

To start I can say that the food at Da Vincenzo is just magnificent. We had the lamb shank, chicken and pizza, which were all good, but the lamb shank is the star dish. The service was quick, but the waiter spilled sauce on my wife's new dress and didn't really bother to apologize. The venue is very nice, but... More

Great setting and ambience. The food taste really great and the staff are very friendly. I have enjoyed every single visit to this place. The chili paste is really something. Not for the unseasoned spicy food lover

We had a table of 29 people for a birthday bash. Michael worked with us to make a great evening. The food was great and it all came timeously to the table. Everyone enjoyed themselves. Vincenzo himself made sure that we were well looked after. I would recommend this place as a good place for a function after being here... More
