$10 for $20 Worth of Italian Cuisine
A Winston-Salem staple since 1964, this Italian restaurant stands the test of time with traditional dishes such as pasta fazool soup ($2.75–$4.49), sautéed shrimp scaloppini ($15.99), buttery veal marsala ($16.99) and golden-brown baked eggplant parmigiana ($13.49).
Vincenzo’s well-established reputation dates back to 1964, when Winston-Salem’s residents were first wooed into the restaurant’s cozy dining room by the scents of Italian pastas, steaks, and oven-baked pizzas. The glow of Vincenzo’s blue neon sign has hardly diminished since those early days, and the eatery continues to make guests feel at home with its plush mauve booths, hanging plants, and mirror portals to grandma's kitchen. Lunches of sub sandwiches and pizzas give way to dinners of tender chicken breast, hearty pastas, and house-specialty dishes such as manicotti stuffed with seasoned ricotta cheese and shaved Renaissance paintings. Fluffy breads sop up the flavorful marinara and garlic sauces left over on plates of breaded veal, baked eggplant, and lobster fettuccine.
