Vetro what a restaurant !
All I can say is you need to try this place. It's not just about the amazing food or first class service it's about the experience. Our server , Julian, was probably the most attentive waiter that I have ever had. He had this wonderful air of arrogance (meant as a compliment) because he knew how to treat his customers. From explaining the menu to catering to my vegetarian daughter. He was spot on. His recommendations for our dinner were perfect. Don't leave this restaurant complaining about the price because you will not find a finer place. Water always full, dishes taken off promptly and the tables were cleaned off after dinner was done. Exactly what to expect from a classy restaurant. I can't wait to go back.

Great birthday dinner for my wife
Vertro came highly recommended and my wife wanted to go there for her birthday. It turned out to be a fantastic place with great service and even better food. We will definitely be returning and also recommending it to all of our friends. The prices were very reasonable for the quality of service and food that we were given. I would rate Vetro a quality 5 star restaurant and lounge.

My wife and I had dinner here for our 1st Anniversary and the staff couldn't have made it a more exquisite time for us. We even got to say hello to the owner, who is a true gentleman. Great food, great atmosphere, great staff and great time!

What a night!
Took my girlfriend to Vetro's for her 50th Birthday. Started with drinks on roof top bar. Great view, very comfortable. Then dinner in the restaurant. Food was incredible & waiter, Lance, was probably the best waiter I've ever had. We had a lobster & asparagus appetizer & a spinach salad that were both really delicious. Then, we had salmon & sole entrees entrees that were both mouth watering. Roasted red bliss potatoes on the side. Last, a cannoli sundae that was to die for. Lance put a sparkler in the dessert to celebrate the day. The entire meal was only $99 (although we also had a great bottle of wine that was recommended by the waiter, which was extra). Top-notch food & service. I will be going to Vetro's regularly!

Wonderful Birthday Treat
We brought my mother here for her 60th birthday. Because we were going to show in Manhattan later that evening we arrived for dinner at the very early hour of 5pm. The restaurant was very empty at that time (Wednesday) but the wait staff treated us like royalty. The food was delicious. The gnocchi and mussels we had as appetizers were fresh and perfectly prepared. Our entrees were superb as was dessert. But it was the wait staff and their attentiveness that made all the difference. They heard us mention that it was my mother's birthday and brought her a slice of cheesecake with a sparkling firework atop it. Top notch staff!

a place I would keep returning to
Came here for my anniversary and it was the best dining experience I have ever had.

My wife and I got married at Vetro so we return to have dinner on our anniversary. Dinner was great but the company was much better...
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the go to restaurant that NEVER FAILS to impress. The amazing food, attention to every detail by the staff and the overall appearance of the venue, everyone feels special. The staff makes note of your likes and dislikes, menu items ( or specials) you want to try on your next visit, etc.

This was our first time at
This was our first time at this restaurant. We were there for our anniversary dinner. I like the fact that before we were fully seated and was given the wine list, we were greeted by the receptionist and our dessert was decorated with "Happy Anniversary". Food was execellent, servers were couteous and friendly and the restaurant was clean. It was also special tgay tge owner went from one table to another to greet their guests.

Brunch at Vetro
This restaurant is on Cross Bay Blvd near the bridge to Far Rockaway. It was opened by the catering hall called Russo's on the Bay. The food is very good. We went for the price fixed $28 brunch, There is a wide choice of items on the menu. A free drink is included with the brunch. The food was well prepared. On this particular Sunday we were give a bread basket. There was no danish since they had not been delivered. We had a cheese cover in sauce. We did not like the sauce. The main course was a chicken with salad which was outstanding. The restaurant offer outdoor seating, as well as indoor seating. The outdoor seating is on the water. This was a very good experience.

All the small dishes were
All the small dishes were excellent. I love Octopus and they really knocked it out of the park. Ordered two servings!! Service was excellent. Our waitress was friendly , knowledgeable and attentive. We had a great dinner before heading over to the Kimmel Center for a concert.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
We'll be back!!!!!!!!!!
Our experience was great. The service was phenomenal. The food.... not prepared the traditional Italian way. For instance CARBONARA...had peas and mushroom, FRANCESE..had tomato on it......but it was all good. A nice twist on these dishes! My ESPRESSO MARTINI was wonderful. The restaurant was clean, beautifully decorated...with valet parking. GREAT MENU. Looking forward to trying some other items on the menu. Prices.....not bad for fine dining. ALSO...great Party rooms...and lounges.

My husband made a reservation here for my birthday. We are from the South Shore of Staten Island so we traveled pretty far but it was totally worth it! We definitely would not mind making the trip again for a date night.

A great place to celebrate
We went for our anniversary dinner. We were seated at a window table over looking the water. Service was friendly and professional; a nice pace, water glasses were never empty, the food presented elegantly.
To start we had orecchiette with sausage & broccoli rabe in a garlic sauce, and mozzarella in carrozza "Fiorentina". Both were excellent.
I had the eggplant parmigania served with a bowl of linguine.The red sauce was spot on, not sweet or acidic. My husband had scallops francaise with sauteed spinach & onions. Excellent.
For dessert we had the Cannoli Sundae. It was served it to us with a sparkler, a very nice touch.
The service was 5 star - attentive and professional yet friendly and approachable. The place is beautiful and comfortable.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
can't wait to go back
My baby and I spent hours looking for a place to have dinner. We wanted to go to a place where the food would be a hit rather than a miss. After searching the web for more than two hours and re-reading the reviews for Vetro's we took a chance. I've gone to Russo's for weddings and hoped and prayed that the food at Vetro's would be as good. We did have some reservations even after making the reservation. Well let me tell you. Luke was our server and he was outstanding! It has been a while since we had oustanding drinks and food. I am very happy that we've found a local fine dinning place because the ride to NJ to the Chart House was not the best move on a Friday night considering the traffic.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Food; Homemade Pasta; accommodating to gluten-free and had excellent gluten-free pasta. Delicious chicken and shrimp entrees. Beautiful presentation. Attentive staff. Dessert sampling amazing. Definitely will return.

New Bistro Lunch Menu is Great
I happened to be there for lunch when they introduced their new Bistro lunch menu. The food was fantastic and the choices were great. Just as you would expect if you've ever eaten here. From staples like baked clams and calamari for appetizers through to delicious pastas and salads, the new additions of things like Kobe Beef hot dogs and incredible hamburgers make this menu a hit. Of course, as usual, the service was fantastic. Can't wait to get back there.
