Diner Reviews
  • "Vaso Azzurro is one of the best Italian restaurants in S.F. bay area. Food is surprisingly delicious. We ordered Bruscetta Napoletana, Bocconcini Di Mozzarella Alla Caprese, Linguini Azzurro, and Carre Di Agnello. Carre Di Agnello is grilled lamb chops to desired temperature over shiitaki and green peas-risotto in a brandy cream demi-glaze sauce. Tender lamb chops with juicy risotto, I love it! Linguini Azzurro was full of mussels, big scallops, baby shrimps, clams. The dish was tasty. My friend ordered red wine, he liked it. I ordered mojito, tasted great."

  • "so yes it is a casual place and we don't expect outstanding food. However with the pricing of the entrees, I don't think we had for what we paid. My dish was good, however the pasta my ordered were very regular and the tomatoe sauce was not great."

  • "We thought the servers were friendly and trying to please but fell short on getting meals to us because other groups were coming in. We left plenty of time but if you are in a rush, I would not recommend going there. The food was very good. I would go back becaude we go to events in the area but I would leave plenty of time to be patient with service."

  • "Some of our dishes were delicious and some were so so. The services was, as always, outstanding! We sat for the first time outside. I have to say with the trains going by at regular intervals, it was too noisy for me. The ambiance and noise level is much better inside. We'll be definitely back."

  • "The atmosphere is wonderful. You've got some musicians and a man singing authentic Italian tunes throughout the restaurant. The food was hit or miss. I think two people at our table loved their meals, the 4 others thought it was eh."

  • "We ordered the salmon, flat iron steak, and two chicken dishes with a carpaccio appetizer. All were excellent. Service was a little spotty, our waiter seemed distracted. Clarinet and bass player by bthe bar played jazz standards softly and well."

  • "We eat out often and it's always nice to find an exceptionally good restaurant in a convenient location. We ended up all having the Salmon (I normally never order fish but wanted something light) all of us agreed it was one of the best meals. The coffee and desert were excellent and the wine list was very reasonable. All in all it's definitely a place we'll return to."

  • "We always enjoy the food and friendly service at Vaso. The staff is helpful at recommending dishes if you are vacillating between selections. The wine list is appropriate for the dishes and a reasonable value. Though the outdoor dining is on the street, it is a pleasant oplace to while away a summer evening."

  • "Owner is friendly. Waiters look cranky. When the wrong salad was brought out, the waiter questioned us then it took 15 minutes to get a Caesar. We asked for bread 3 times and were told it was baking even tho atleast 5 baskets came out before ours and it was cold. Really? The food was ok. Not worth the price and the online menu was so much lower than the actual. The freaky part was when this old lady came out and interrupted our dinner to gush over us and freak out my 92 year old mother by kissing her. Might be ok for regulars but we won't be back. "

  • "We enjoyed the food very much and the service was really good. However, the owners were a little too visible, visiting tables and proclaiming "love." Just a little too much and it interferred with our dining somewhat. However, we will go there again and have been there before. Liked it then, too."

  • "This is a great place for a date or special occasion dining. We love to go here. The owners are very nice and the staff is extra attentive. Often there is a two piece sax and base band playing Italian songs and the owners or staff love to join in and sing. Fun night for sure."

  • "The food was fantastic, and Mama came around frequently to make sure you enjoyed your meal and were getting everything you asked for. There was a tad bit of confusion when we arrived, as the earlier tables were lingering (so we had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation). The hosts were very apologetic, and what's a few minutes when you'll be getting an outstanding dinner? My husband got the roast chicken special and I got the lamb chops. Both were cooked to perfection and absolutely to die for. The garlic/olive oil bread dip was delicious as well. Other customers were eager to share their favorite dishes with us (mushroom ravioli with pink sauce), and everyone was so friendly. It was our first visit there, it won't be our last."

  • "My family of 6 went for a birthday dinner. We brought the 3 year old and ate at 7:00. Potentially not a good scenario as it's late for her. The staff went out of their way to take care of her (and so made our evening easier) and sang a lovely happy birthday to grandpa. We had some high-maintenance eaters (not including the toddler). One vegan and one gluten free patron in our group. It went well and everyone was happy."

  • "My girlfriend and I went here for dinner on a Friday evening and left unimpressed, which is unfortunate in some respects because the food was very good. That said, the service rates among the worst I can remember. First, the waiter rushed to get our orders before we had time to look at the menu, even though the restaurant wasn't crowded and he was not overly busy. Second, the timing in serving our courses was horrendous - we ordered three courses and both the second and third course were brought to the table before we finished the prior course. Third, with each new course, the waiter failed to bring new silverware and was generally inattentive throughout the evening. The atmosphere is ok if you like live music, but I doubt we return."

  • "The food at Vaso Azzurro is very good and the menu selection is excellent (something for everyone). I had the Seafood risotto, and it was fresh and delicious. I don't know if this happens every night, but I was dining on Friday night and there is live jazz music and lots of spontaneous singing (anniversaries, birthdays). The atmosphere was loud and fun; almost like dinner and a show. If you want a quiet, romantic dinner, this is not the spot for you."

  • "The food and service was excellent. I will recommend to others!"

  • "We had eaten there many times with good results. Last evening was a nightmare. Twice, before we had finished our dinner a waiter removed our silverware and bread. We had to recall them. The food for all of us was awful. My veal was like the sole of my shoe. The singer interrupted our conversation at least twice. It was as though all the staff was under a spell. Afraid to ever go back."

  • "Went with a small group after reading favorable reviews on Yelp. Restaurant decor was nice, food was at best average for price, service was slow and inattentive. Seemed like the waiter had too many tables to cover, while a plethora of busboys stood around. There are too many good restaurants to waste time and money here."

  • "I requested for a birthday song for my 13yr old in the opentable reservation notes. It got completely ignored. The next table over did get a nice birthday rendition. May be they don't read the comments section from opentable:( Food is consistently good."

  • "I took some friends to Vaso Azzurro for dinner after having a relatively positive experience a couple months ago. Unfortunately, this time, the food was disappointing. The porcine crusted halibut was overcooked by the time it came to the table, and the flavoring was bland. The sauce was too thick and rich. The restaurant itself was very noisy, which isn't unusual. However, in an extremely noisy restaurant you wouldn't expect the maitre d' to jump up in the middle of dinner and bellow into a microphone. Even that would have been OK if he didn't think that he needed to sing loud enough to drown out conversation. I was embarrassed that I had suggested the place to my friends. I left the restaurant with a headache and indigestion."

  • "The food, atmosphere & service was excellent! Definitely a great place to bring friends for a night of good food & company. I must warn you though that the place can get really loud & conversation can become a shouting match! But when with your friends it just adds to the fun. Reservation is a MUST the place is packed. Will definitely be back!"

  • "This has become one of my favorite Italian restaurants. It is family owned and run ..... even mama Vaso walks around greeting and making sure everything is perfect. The food is fantastic. Go on a Friday or Saturday evening when they have music and someone in the family is singing! But don't forget to make a reservation ...... it's a favorite for a lot of people."

  • "At Vaso Azzurro, I often find that the meal starts off great (the focaccia with the garlicky oil is fanstastic!), but the entrees often turn out to be not as good as the bread. I'm still searching for the right savory entree. It's very good, mind you, but just not excellent. However, the terrific service and live jazz music on Friday nights often bring me back."
