We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We accidentally went to the Farmingdale location and when we called the Northport location to let them know they were very understanding and held our table. The hostesses recognized us from the phone call and I was promptly greeted with a friendly "Happy Birthday" from both hostesses. Our group liked the music playing and the restaurant's aesthetic - we loved the red booths! We ordered Italian food. Everything we ordered was excellent: from rice balls to osso buco. We found the food to be on the salty side across the board; however everything was tasty and fresh. Our waiter, Joshua, was great. We will definitely come back to try other items on the menu and recommend to others looking for a solid, lively Italian restaurant.

We went to Vespa for an event a month ago and had mixed feelings about it but decided to give it another try. SO happy that we did. Had such a great time and a great meal. Meatballs, mozzarella frita and calamari (we got the Thai style) as appetizers were all wonderful. I got the seared tuna based on the rave reviews on Open Table. While it was good, my husband's bolognese dish was super good. If I went back, I would stick with the pasta dishes. Highly recommend. We did have a very noisy group next to us who clearly had one person at their table who was three sheets to the wind so that made the ambience a little less great - but we don't blame the restaurant for that. The only other feedback is that the waitress was a little unfriendly and we felt very rushed throughout the meal but I am not sure if she was under pressure from the kitchen. This was the exact opposite from our previous visit where the waitstaff was super warm and friendly. We look forward to going back to Vespa again and again!

The appetizers were pretty good.. the pizza was unimpressive.. as far as Italian goes in Northport this is the leading contender..in the future I’ll sit at the bar and order a bunch of appetizers

This was our first time to Vespa. We received a nice greeting at the hostess stand from all the girls and were seated promptly in the main dining room. Our reservation was at 7:30pm and the place was very crowded. The noise level was extremely high and I had a hard time talking to my fiancé without raising my voice. When the waiter came over, he had to speak loudly just to hear the specials! Something to be aware of. It has an excellent menu with a variety of pasta, meat, and fish dishes. I highly recommend the meatballs and sauce as an appetizer. They are authentic Italian meatballs made with veal, pork, and beef. This is how my Italian mom used to make them and there as good as any restaurant I’ve been to. I had the chicken parm as a main course and it was excellent. Also, a very good wine list. Overall, a good experience with great food and wait staff.

They had many gluten free options, which is rare for an Italian restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. The octopus appetizer was cooked perfectly with the perfect amount of spice. We will for sure be back!!

Food is excellent but disappointing if you have a shellfish allergy. They use the fryer for all seafood, chicken and fries. Entrees are good portions but sides are extra. Service is good and the staff is friendly.

Overall it was okay as far as typical family italian restaurants go. The specials we ordered I felt were overpriced for the quality of food. $45 for 4 stuffed shrimp, but then charged additional $4 for modifying to add baby spinach as per the regular menus gamberi oregenata dish which was only $29. Pasta facilities was decent but too salty. Rocket salad was good. We were seated outside in tent which was very noisy due to 25A traffic. Reservation was online thru OpenTable bit didn't realize it was for outside seating. Perhaps inside ambience is better.

We waited 10-15 before even being acknowledged at our table. I eat at restaurants fairly often and have never been compelled to leave a bad review or a review at all but this was close to the slowest and careless service I have ever experienced. We were never asked if we want another round of drinks, we did want more, and didn’t even have a chance to ask waitress because she brought drinks and didn’t come back until after main course was served. We ordered kids pizza, bowl of soup, Caesar salad and osso buco. Nothing that should’ve taken over an hour to serve. I’m not a negative person but this was very disappointing because I have wanted to go there since they opened. Not sure I’ll give this establishment another chance. There is more complaints but I don’t feel right going into everything. It’s just not who I am.
