My wife and I loved stopping in while out on our bikes for a slice and a beer. Unfortunately did away with the Switchback on tap and replaced with Pabst and only other beer choice is IPA. Need to provide more alternatives like budlight or...More

I tried Vespa's pizza because I have the Vermont Pizza Card. This means I've tried a lot of new pizza places in VT over the past few months. Vespa's was my far the largest of the large pizzas. (Not sure how some can get away...More

Thanks so much for the kind words. We take a lot of pride in the food we make, our sauces, dressings, breads and most of what we serve is made in house and fresh. We look forward to seeing you again.

I was hungry for some type of sandwich, but not anything near me but the $5 sandwich shop. Checked Trip Advisor and Vespa's was listed as the number one pizza/sandwich shop in Essex. Stopped by midafternoon and ordered a panini. It was out of this...More

The pizza sauce on my pizza was the best I've tasted in a long time. If you're used to chain-store pizza, come here and get a taste of a real hand-made, custom prepped pizza. Everything is fresh, and the flavor reflects that. Service is quick...More

Vespa's makes the best pizza for miles around. The mushroom and brie is the one that everyone fights over - do yourself a favor and order 2 pies of that concoction. The risotto balls are equally amazing. Never eaten anything here that was less than...More

I think that 4 stars is just right. From a local small Italian joint, it's better than average but not in the great category. Outside seating is nice, service is friendly. The Greek salad wasn't really Greek style but it was unexpectedly good.

Stopped in on a rainy Friday night on the way to our hotel. Staff was friendly and efficient. Wait for pizza was surprisingly NOT that long. After 6 min drive to our hotel, the pizza was still hot and tasted amazing.
