Love getting a booth, a beer and a pie at this snug pizzeria on a cold night--it's a relaxing sort of place where you never feel rushed. You can also take any kind of eater here, the menu has plenty of gold standards like Hawaiian and pepperoni, but you can also get more unusual combos like the lamb and roasted potato or spinach and prosciutto. Good Caesar, with homemade dressing.
Great variety in toppings... But service is not top top... – Potatoes are my favorite food staple... Add them to a pizza... True heaven! Their pizza dough is great, quite authentic tasting pies. But I would get the pizza to go, or sit outside on the sidewalk... The service is okay but the inside gets stuffy in the summer months...
Never going back!!!!! – Actually, the service is horrendous. It's riddled with flies and always dirty.I went there out of necessity for years and never dined in. My mind was briefly changed by a server by the name of Jason. We would only come in on nights that he worked and always ask to sit in his section. Any other time was a nightmare and a regrettable mistake. Without him there, the pizza isn't worth the hassle. If anyone knows where he is working now, could you please post it.
Awesome Pizza Joint Baby – I came in on Monday night only to find a super-friendly staff smiling to greet me. I don't know what these other reviews are saying, because I've been coming in to Vincente's since I was in second grade. This neighborhood place is truly wonderful, and has some of the best pizza around.
Good Pizza, Great Service! – I dined at Vincente's the other night, and am very surprised about some of the reviews posted here. Not only were all of my requests promptly and politely taken care of, but the server - a young woman who was also taking care of the bar - paid close attention to all of the other tables as well. The pizza's pretty good too - not the best in town, but that's hardly a critique in Portland. Nightly beer specials are decent too.
Best Pizza In Town – Vince's secret "old world" sweet crust recipe and unbelievably delicious cheeses make any type of pie you order completely out of this world. Unbeatable pizza, flavorful salads and an outstanding selection of bottle and draft beers make Vincente's, along with Old Town Pizza the two best Pizzerias in Portland. And don't let the other reviewers fool you, Vincente's has solid, if a bit quirky, service and a great atmosphere.
Don't bring in a crowd. – Inconsistent pizza and pretty rude staff if you have a group larger than 2. There are PLENTY of awesome pizza joints in town, so there's really no reason to waste money at this one. Try Tom's sports bar on Lombard, Bella Faccia on Alberta, Flying Pie on Stark, etc.. OH! And Dante's has some delicious, underrated pie. Basically anywhere else in town. I love pizza. It's really hard to bum me out on pizza, but Vincente's staff succeeded.
go eat somewhere else – bad/rude service and mediocre pizza for the price. I suggest spending your money elsewhere. there are many better and friendlier pizzerias in town.
Not a fan – I've been eating out almost daily for 30 years and live within walking distance to Vincente's.
I act pleasant and tip at least 20% so it's rare for me to have service troubles.
yet I've been to Vincente's 3 times and all 3 times gotten horrible service with an attitude, so now I go elsewhere.
Top 5 Pizza in Portland and Fine Sevice – Vincente's is home to one of the Top 5 Pizzas cooked in Portland and is on par with the Apizza Scholls, Mississippi Pizza, and Escape from NY. They have a great selection of beer on tap and the service is just fine. We were in on a Friday night and never had an instance where the service was not good. Salads are also big and tasty. Vincente's is a good pizza place.
I didn't have bad service... – I was prepared to have terrible service, as that's what the reviews here set me up to expect. Granted, I went in on a Thursday night, but the server was extremely attentive, coming by frequently to see how we were doing, and refilling my drink without me asking. Maybe I lucked out on a weeknight, but I will be returning here often. The pizza was fantastic, and I can't wait to try out the other kinds.
