Some might opine that Vincent's has never been the same since you could order a pizza without cigarette ash, but it certainly was a distinctive part of Forest Hills.

    More info: they hadn't paid rent since June 2011.
     
    While I'm sorry to see them go, I acknowledge that non-payment of rent is a serious problem.

      I just found about this last night and was going to post this today.  It really was some great pizza when he was still alive.

        My brother always joked about getting 'extra ash'.
         
        You had to hold it just right in the car if you got it to go, as there was no box, just cardboard wrapped in white butcher-type paper.
         
        The pizza in North Huntigdon (Irwin) was never as good as Forest Hills.

          The first Vincent's I tried was the one in the North Hills and it was excellent, but that shop is now long since closed.  Vincent's of Greentree is still open and I like their pizza, too.

            buffetbuster pointed me to an article with more thorough coverage of Vincent's and the situation:

                Very sad news. Their sausage pies were the best.  If you dined in at Vincents, you always saved your crust to sop up the "juice" in the middle of the pie. We would fight for it as it lay there on the metal baking pan.
                The place went downhill after Vinnie's death. Does anybody know if piemaker Dave was part of the new ownership?

                RIP Vincents. You shall be missed. You were worth driving through TWO TUNNELS for a Vinnie Pie!!!!

                  There might be hope for Vincent's  Pizza after all! Check this Post Gazette article for the latest news.

                  Hopefully Vincent's daughter will be able to clear these hurdles and reopen the store soon.
