The hotel on Roosevelt Boulevard in St. Petersburg opened originally as a Radisson, then two years ago, with a full renovation, became a Marriott. Its restaurant, Roosevelt's, was an American grill of a predictable nature, but in April it was transformed into Vincenzo's Grill. Vincenzo Longo had owned a similar eponymous restaurant in Safety Harbor for eight years. A straight-up Italian restaurant with Mama in the kitchen, it was known for its gnocchi and housemade pastas. Vincenzo's Grill hedges its bet a little with dishes (steaks, grilled fish) that are more mainstream, but Mama is still in the kitchen keeping it real with her Bolognese sauce and homemade dressings. Pick a pasta (spaghetti, ziti, tortellini, even gluten-free or whole wheat) and then your sauce.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner, Italian cuisine.
