It was our first time at VaBene and we loved it. My husband had the lasagna and really enjoyed it. I had the shrimp linguine dish and it rates as one of my favorite pasta dishes ever… YUM!

The staff was really good. They were pretty busy but we received great service.

As it was a lovely fall evening we dined on the patio which was furnished with couches rather than the traditional tables and chairs. It was very cozy and inviting however the couches were awfully low for a short person. The service that evening was a bit slow but the quality of the food definitely made up for it. We will be back. I did notice when we went inside to check in that the noise level was extremely high, at least in the area of the hostess desk. There were two tv’s tuned to different stations blaring at what seemed to be full volume. Perhaps the dining area was a bit quieter but I doubt it as the place isn’t that big. That would be a deal breaker for me as both my husband and I have some level of hearing disability. It took away from the expected bistro ambience and made it seem like any other sports bar.

Eat out in the covered patio. Tables spaced apart. Staff wore masks. Waitress was super. Drinks and food came fast. Restaurant was in no hurry to have us leave in a rush.

I had such a great time! It was my first time there and I got the Caesar salad and cacio e Pepe and it was amazing! I loved the corn and veggies in it! Also, the half priced wine bottles on Wednesday was a big plus, will definitely be back soon!

This was our second time at VaBene. The food is very good but service was extremely slow for a Tuesday evening. Will give it one more shot though to see if this was an "off" night.

Back again for long lunch with a friend. Had reserved a nice table on the patio. The food was great and only surpassed by the attention of our server. Will be returning often.

The only thing I would state is the table top was completely tilted. We sat outside and I thought our bottle of wine was going to side off

It was a lovely night, and we enjoyed a table outside. The arrancini and lobster bisque were amazing, and the rest of our meal was equally delish. We took advantage of the wine special (half price bottles). Will definitely go back. Bonus that it’s in our neighborhood.

You took a reservation for Monday and the restaurant was closed when I arrived!

Noise level was high, food was great and prices good. Server had too many tables but it appeared they we short staffed. Big patio. We will go back to try the happy hour on the patio which is only available at bar seating and patio.

Not impressed. Prices are too expensive for the quality of food and charm/ambience of the venue. Disappointing.
