Needed a night out with the wife she wanted to do Vince's on Harlem. We ordered the bake clams to start   , great
Flavor. Then my wife ordered the chicken vesuvio, my wife loved it ! I ordered the veal delicious best veal I had in a while almost as good as mom use to make ! The server was new but did a great job . I would definitely come back again. A lot of food and reasonably priced. - Frank C.

We LOVE Vince's!!!  Definitely a favorite.  Excellent service, friendly, warm atmosphere and great food!  They also have a decent wine selection and every meal I have ordered there has been above perfection! - Maggie V.

Love this place! Not only do you get the traditional free bread on the table, but you also get tomato focaccia and brushetta... For free! My favorite entree here is the pork chop vesuvio, always tender, juicy and full of flavor.  Definitely one of my favorites in the neighborhood. - Traci G.Service was impeccable. Both the young man who seated us and our server were incredibly friendly, attentive and eager to answer any questions about the menu. Our water glasses barely made it half way before being refilled.  I had the Angel Hair Liguria, which was delicious and plentiful. After already eating the complimentary bread, bruschetta and the mixed green salad that came with my entree, I couldn't even put a dent in my dish. After bringing the leftovers home and dividing them up, I got three more filling servings out of it. My mom had the Pasta Bowl of angel hair and meat sauce and my dad had the Mediterranean Sub--both seemed really happy with their choices. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for an overall great dining experience. - D.C.

A family favorite for delivery! Yumm. 
It seems like every pizza place thinks they can make Chicago Style pizza lately. I picture all these little pizza joints sitting around pondering how to increase their cash-flow and deciding: "Hey, we can charge folks triple the price by sticking some globular semi-cheese product on a piece of our cardboard-like crust, adding a little Ragu and calling it a day.". Well, I am sick of bad tasting Chicago pizza! I DEMAND fresh mozzarella and zesty homemade sauce and buttery crust at fair prices. (Every girl needs a cause.) And this is where I get it. The pizza that is, not the cause. The perfect cheese to sauce to crust ratio. Zesty, creamy, buttery. Perfect. Delivery is fast. Coupons online. Badaboom! I don't want to neglect their fresh pastas and delicious sandwiches. Good variety and homemade sauce. MMMM. Vinces is a nice casual restaurant to dine in and has ample parking and a very nice private room, but the real glory is in the delivery of good, Chicago style pizza. Mangi! - Brittany C.

I've never eaten in the restaurant, but their pizza delivery is out of this world. Can't beat the price, two pizzas for the price of one! I love their BLT pizza and their veggie pizza. That's all we order! Their bruschetta is also very good. - Jennifer T.

Great great great place. I love the food, love the drinks, wait staff is friendly. I have only dined in so far, didn't even know they deliver! I am in love!
Update: Had delivery 3 times now and it's awesome. The spaghetti carbonara is enough for 3 meals. Not super fast, but I expect quality food to take longer than cheap/fast foods. - Mary M.

I love the ambience here in this lovely Italian restaurant.  The service is first rate, and the food is excellent.  They have a separate room for private parties.  I enjoy the lasagne and the chicken parm.  The wait staff always makes you feel special and welcome at Vince's - Patricia B.

Vince's is great.  I like their food.  I've never eaten inside the restaurant, but I order in quite a bit.  Fast delivery, good food, what more can you ask for.  Their tiramisu is pretty amazing. - Urszula H.

This is a very charming little Italian restaurant in the plaza by Lawrence and Harlem. The waiters are very pleasant and the presentation was really refined. I was surprised with the decor and the preparation. I was not expecting it, but it was actually a very elegant dining experience. I'd recommend coming in for lunch. The food is great - you can't go wrong with anything on the menu, and they bring you the usual bread and butter before your meal. - Daria Z.

Had a very fresh seafood salad which included octopus, calamari, shrimp, clams & oysters. EXCELLENT.  Seemed to be a step above your average 'run of the mill' italian restaurant. GOOD service, GOOD prices & GOOD food. - Jose T.

Hands down, the best calamari in the Chicagoland area! Still loving this place.... - Kathy R.

I love this place!!!!! If you ever want authentic Italian restaurant at a reasonable price, this is the place for you!  I have been coming to this restaurant since 1992.  The place has not changed but, the food is still awesome.  We ordered the grilled seafood and eggplant parmigiana.  Must try the grilled seafood. - Richelle T.

Vince's is a great, old restaurant.  It serves quality Italian food at very reasonable prices, especially lunch.  I have never had a bad thing on the menu and always leave satisfied.  It is probably one, if not only the best thing about Harwood Heights. - Alex S.
