  • "I chose this place to have a small celebration. Parking and coat check is complementary and the staff were friendly. Our server was very knowledgeable, and answered any questions we had. The food was AMAZING, it was an ultimate dining experience. The ambiance was wonderful; there are quiet partitions to the dining room which give a quiet and intimate vibe. I was disappointed at the end. Our server brought the check, and he wrote the suggested tip amount. After the server processed the payment, he filled in the tip line with the suggested amount. If it is a business practice, or if we were being judged, it was a turn off after such a wonderful meal. I tipped appropriately, more than what was suggested but less than what I had planned."

  • "Being from Las Vegas we eat at a lot of the best restaurants. We also ate at a couple of well known restaurants in New York recently. Vetro by Russo's was hands-down the best food we have had in the past few months. Finding a 5 star rated restaurant close to the airport was surprising. Little did we know how surprised we would really be. Tele (hostess) made sure we had a great table and took care of us throughout the meal. The service was outstanding, the staff very friendly, and the FOOD was just spectacular! Great Wine. This restaurant has gone out of their way to create something unique. It is obvious they hold themselves to the highest standards! And, I have never taken the time to review any restaurant. Anthony and Eva"

  • "Took my Mother for her birthday at lunchtime. Service was impeccable from the maitre d' to our server. I beleive we even chatted with the sommelier( not sure-he didnt say, we didnt ask) about the great wine selections. The food was to die for. The greeter (sorry dont remember her name) was very gracious and kind to us. The doorman was nice and very funny. Even my finicky-eating son tried different menu items not of his usual choosings. My sometimes hard to please Mom( said kindly) was wondrously impressed: and that's a monumental acheivement for anyone dealing with her. Lol!"

The pork chop with peppers was our entree of choice and the 3 of us were loving every bite. Great dinner, great value and great service. Who could ask for anything more?"

  • "After our 3rd time dining here, Vetro has still found a way to exceed our expectations. The food and ambiance were simply amazing but the service was beyond compare. The fact that we were remembered by a member of the staff from our last visit (last August) is amazing and definitely appreciated. I would recommend Vetro to anyone."

  • "I wanted to celebrate my boyfriends birthday at a romantic place. Vetro's was outstanding. Your table is far apart from the others which gives you privacy. It's very quiet with Italian music playing. Their food is delicious. Our waiter was very friendly and didn't rush us through dinner. This was my boyfriends first time dinning here and loved it. He is looking forward to returning to experience the rooftop."

Add to that the romantic water view of the terrace dining area, or tge privacy and romantic charm of the inner dining space, you're in for a treat. Vetro never disappoints, as they make you feel like you are dining at a classy relatives home. DO NOT MISS THE CHICKEN FRANCESE MEATBALLS!!"

  • "The evening was very decadent , They made me and my family feel very welcomed and attended to . We thoroughly enjoyed the food which was undeniably amazing.And the wait staff were extremely helpful and endearing. This was our first time dining at vetro and would definitely come again. The environment was quite calm and reserved with soft music playing in the background. Everything about the atmosphere was perfect. If you are looking for an elegant way to celebrate a special occasion or have a romantic dinner for two this is the spot . Food was divine, dessert was heaven and the staff were angels I felt like a goddess for my birthday"

  • "The ambiance was wonderful, service was also outstanding. The food was more or less average (a little too pricey for what you get) but overall not bad. It is definitely more-so for the experience rather than the quality of your meal. Lovely location and overall a little more upscale. Would recommend."

  • "Valet parking, a doorman that actually attentively opens doors (so rare in NY), maitre'd greeting, coat check.....A memorable evening. Lovely Italian music. Nice ambience. Service to die for. Food was pretty good but the only caveat, we all felt our dishes tasted a bit salty, still, not a major problem. Wine is pricey. Have the sole, octopus and risotto."

  • "Went back to Vetro and the food was magnificent as always. We explored the wine list and really found some gems in there collection.

This is a business casual place and not for the regular diners, but otherwise it is worth dressing up for. I recommend the lobster truffle mac and cheese, it is worth it."
