Owner and chef Bob Airdo—a veteran of upscale hotel kitchens such as Chicago's Ritz-Carlton—leads a team of culinary savants as they infuse Vincitori's menu of upscale Italian dishes with unique style. Classic offerings include handcrafted pasta dishes, which arrive tossed in creamy or wine-infused sauces, and the menu is also peppered with intriguing flavor combinations such as potato skins stuffed with cheese, pancetta, and sundried tomato pesto. Hot giardiniera peppers, prosciutto, and other Italian toppings perform folk dances atop thin-crust pizzas, and seafood, steaks, and meaty plates make a strong showing as they arrive trimmed with vegetables or atop saucy slip 'n' slides.
Diners savor their plates beneath ambient pendant lights in the warmly painted dining room, which is adorned with vino artwork to complement the pours of fine wine coming from the granite-topped bar. The lounge fills with live entertainment starting at 7 p.m. most Fridays and Saturdays, and Vincitori also hosts banquets and caters for weddings, graduations, and long theme-park lines.
