Don Vincenzo

Don Vincenzo is a cafe located on Brunswick Street. I stopped by there for a quick dinner with my friend Justin. I had just finished a training course which was held in Brunswick Street and Justin dropped by after his volunteer work at the FINA Swimming Championships.

The cafe was a bit dim for my liking, but otherwise it had a nice easy feel to it. The guy sitting right in the corner near the toilets staring out at everyone with this hawk like gaze made me feel a little uneasy. But once we settled in and started talking, I forgot about him.

We got Salmon Bruschetta for entrees, which were tasty with the usual smoked salmon, capers and olive oil. The bread was a bit overdone.

I ordered the Chorizo Pasta. The tomato based sauce was ok, and the Chorizo's weren't the best I'd tasted, but overall it was quite good.

Justin's Seafood Risotto was a better dish I thought. It had lots of flavour and the risotto was done quite well.

The service from the extremely bubbly waitress was good, and overall it was a nice relaxing place for a quick meal.

Overall Rating: 10/20, Food was ok and fairly priced, especially for that area. I would probably go there again for a lunch rather than dinner.

Scores: 1-9: Unacceptable, don't bother. 10-11: Just OK,some shortcomings. 12: Fair. 13: Getting there. 14: Recommended. 15: Good. 16: Really good. 17: Truly excellent. 18: An outstanding experience. 19-20: Approaching perfection, Victoria's best.
