We had reserved a private area for a group of 20. The appetizers were great, with delicious pizza and an interesting antipasto with nicely crusted bread. When seated, we were pretty crowded, and this impeded the service, which was not the waiter's fault. It took a long time for our food to arrive (we had a choice of 3 entrees).... More

My family of 3 dined here on a Saturday night. My son, aged 2, was offered either a booster seat or a high chair which was greatly appreciated. Also of note, all pastas are available in half orders and he enjoyed homemade rigatoni and marinara sauce. The adults in the party enjoyed Tom Collins and house Cabernet (very good for... More

This was our first visits to Vaccaro's. From the moment you are greeted to your last step out the door you are treated like family. The food Is amazing and the service is great. We had Raquel and was not sure of what wine to order so she went out of her way to bring a sample to try. She... More

The owner and staff were very welcoming on our first visit. The stuffed peppers and linguine with meat sauce were outstanding. Try it, we'll be back!

Our group went here for dinner after hearing some very good reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was very good and quickly served! The restaurant was quiet and we were extremely well attended once seated. Will definitely eat here again the next time I am in town.

The pesto with spinach linguini was delicious and not overly oily. House salad dressing was delicious. Husband loved his gnocchi with secret sauce (I wasn't a fan, but then again, I didn't order it). The fritte dessert (fried donuts) was amazing, fresh and hot, but HUGE...enough for 4 or 5 people. Waiters were very nice. The only thing I didn't... More

Fabulous Italian dishes, done perfectly with a modern twist. Everything we've eaten at Vaccaro's was made with authentic and fresh ingredients, sourced both locally when possible and all the way from Italy when the dish calls for it. Love that about this place! We dine there often, and find the specials as well as the regular dishes always surprise us... More

Anniversary Dinner at A Fine Dining Italian Restaurant. Made reservations for a Tuesday night in December. We were treated special all night with a well paced non-rushed meal. Complimentary desert was a nice touch! We both had the lasagna and it was excellent. The Bolognese sauce was superb. The ricotta cheese filling was creamy smooth and well complemented by the...

There wasn't anything significantly wrong with any of our dishes, it's just that for the price (entrees without sides) in the $27-$33 range, one expects more. Larger portions, better presentation (my salmon was served skin side up), nicer dining room, better service. We were also told it was slow due to a large party in another room. This was our... More
