Bocce, Bucatini and Prosecco on TAP
Vendetta is a gem and untapped hot new place that quietly slipped in to the H Street Scene! The food is spot on, prices are fair, specialty cocktails amazing and balanced wine list with a good beer selection! Staff is good looking and friendly, atmosphere is fun with two bocce ball courts inside, Vespas hanging from the ceiling on the second floor. Get there early to take advantage of their happy hour and claim your spot on the Bocce Courts! I recommend this place to everyone because there is something for everyone! Let the Italian invasion begin and a welcome addition to H Street!

Great Italian comes to H Street
My girlfriend and I enjoyed our meal a lot. We split the cannellini bean salad and found it to be delicious. We both got pasta dishes (she got the bucatini Bolognese and I the tagliatelle carbonara - both delicious though wanting a touch more sauce). The service was friendly and competent. The only downside was being seated in the window seat next to the bar where we were 1) right next to some louder patrons and 2) right beneath a speaker that was producing a lot of volume for our date night out. The waitress was nice enough to get them to turn the music down and the bar patrons were okay - it was just a little louder than we'd hoped for a nice dinner for two.

A New Twist on an Old Favorite
Vendetta, Italian pasta and bocce, both traditions but to combine in an awesome venue on H Street and with the up-to-date twist on the appetizers, pasta, and desserts, you cannot go wrong here. There's a pasta for every palette and plenty of other goodies and diversions to keep everyone engaged. Kudos to the folks who put this whole concept together.

Great dinner for a group
The food and service were great. We shared quite a few dishes and all were tasty. The beet salad and burrata were favorite appetizers and big enough to share. Some of the pastas are made in house so make sure to ask for those. The gnocchi and tagliatelle are made in house, and I think a few more as well. Plus there is prosecco on tap so what's not o like? Very generous potions-no one could even finish the pasta entrees.

Had some friends from out
Had some friends from out of town and went to Vendetta with a group of 7--we had a blast! Fun, relaxed atmosphere, perfect for a goup outing. The service was super friendly and efficient, the food was very good (especially the appetizers and small plates), happy hour Prosecco on tap is a great idea, and then we had a great time playing bocce ball.

great new restaurant!
This was my first time here and I was completely impressed. The food initially seemed to be your typical food but it wasn't. The chef did slight variations that you think wouldn't work but it did. The food was phenomenal. Not only was the food good but their signature cocktails were perfect, especially if you have adventurous taste buds. The decor of the place was great too. They payed attention to detail. On top of that they had indoor bocce courts for fun before or after dinner. Even you weren't hungry,I could definitely see making this a great bar to hang out and have some drinks upstairs.

On Wednesdays their pasta dishes are $10. Fun atmosphere, bocce ball, great staff. The bread with spread and dip is excellent!

Vendetta is a great addition to the H Street NE dining scene. The service is outstanding, as is the food, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. The antipasto platter is a spicy delight, and the bread comes in a little brown paper bag, along with olive oil and a lovely garlic and herb butter. The zucchini fries are thick chunks lightly breaded and fried. The standouts are the pasta -- creamy carbonara and a hearty bucatini ragu covered with sliced brisket, short ribs and sweet Italian sausage, Both absolutely delicious. Happy hour includes $4 prosecco on tap and $5 wines, and the prices apply at the table. And there are bocce courts on both floors! Take a foodie friend and enjoy a great meal.

We had SUCH a great surprise
We had SUCH a great surprise birthday for my boyfriend at Vendetta! They were SO accommodating to all our needs (and then some) and the service was outstanding!

Happy hour til 8pm inspired us to enjoy two glasses of proseco--my second glass had a slight chemical overtone--don't know if it was the wine or the glass. Caprese salad would have been better with a home grown tomato but was good. Tagliatelle was delcious and portion generous. We could hear each other talk, which is a big plus in my book! Our server was great--prompt and helpful without hovering.

Don't miss the Gnocchi!
Wemwent back twice in one evening - once for dinner and then for drinks after a play. They have Peroni on draft which gives them five stars in my book, and super friendly service. Had the gnocchi and red beet salad which was delicious.

The service was amazing, the Prosecco on draft was great, and a great happy hour special! The meatball pasta dish was excellent, but the ladyfinger, creme dessert was a little bland. However, everything else was outstanding.

We tried this restaurant once
We tried this restaurant once and were taken in by their delicious in house ravoli and attentive service. Within in the week we were back with friends. Everyone's meal was suberb, from the meat dish to the coconut sorbet. Again the service was as excellent as the meal. We are happy to have found such a good restaurant in our neighborhood.

Vendetta is a lot of fun to
Vendetta is a lot of fun to go to. They have a bunch of great daily deals too. I would also recommend the restaurant to vegetarians out there, even though my meat-eating friends loved it too! We didn't play bocce but it's so cool that it's an option! Also, I love that the prosecco is on tap!

Our second time was even better
We had such a great time at Vendetta. We had been before for drinks with friends, but we only ordered small plates of food to share. On this last visit, we ordered delicious entrees and enjoyed other playing bocce. They have good happy hour deals that they allow you to request at the table instead of just the bar like most places. Our service was great, we had a perfect table and I thoroughly enjoyed the prosseco on tap for $4! Yay for H street.
