"Vincenzo exists, but he doesn't exist, know what I mean?" explains one of the cooks at this Windsor Terrace pioneer. But the neighborhooders couldn't care less if he's an actual human being; they're happy to have him in an area with few dining options. Warm, pumpkin-colored walls, an open, aroma-emitting kitchen, and framed antique Italian ads make Vincenzo the restaurant a gracious host, with just as hospitable a menu. Familiar Northern and Southern specialties range from linguine with clams to chicken Francese, but some of the more uncommon dishes are the most winning, like tubettoni, pasta in white wine and fresh tomato sauce tucked into an eggplant, covered in mozzarella and baked. Even dishes likely to elicit a yawn elsewhere are so nicely executed they seem nearly novel, like fresh-made fettuccine in a light, salty carbonara and chicken da Vincenzo, a boneless breast served with mushrooms and artichoke hearts in a slightly creamy sherry sauce. The one surprise is that the Italian cheesecake isn't fresher, being that it comes from sister spot Regina Bakery around the corner, but the Ciao Bella gelato more than makes up for it, and is one more reason that Vincenzo, whether real or fictional, is a very appreciated new neighbor.
