THANK YOU AND ENJOY!
Very nice…but at times loud with the cars on 25a
our waitress was fantastic and food was great
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.
Excellent food and great atmosphere. They were short staffed so service was slots
The best place in Northport!
Everything that you ordered was for. The best rice balls that I have had since Sicily
if you like the eat salt this place is for you! my husband and I eat got pasta dishes that were close to $30 each which I have no problem paying for if I could have enjoyed and finished the meal.
First time at Vespa. Very varied menu and a full wine list. Meal was well prepared and well presented. Device was thoughtful and just right. You go here for the food and the service not for the ambiance
Very noisy. Two front rooms smell musty.
Had dinner with my husband. Everything was outstanding.
Good overall experience. Food was cooked correctly but parking is a little interesting as they have a tent that is in the way when backing out.
One of my favorite restaurants ever! The clams, the Thai calamari, bread.. oysters, salad short ribs Milanese lol don’t forget the spicy lobster pasta 😩 need I say more? Hahah impeccable service to match the food and ambiance as well
DO NOT miss out on the absolute BEST stuffed artichoke I have EVER had! Everything is delicious too!
Wayyyy too loud inside!
Service was excellent from making the reservation to exiting the building with the outside warmers not only being beautiful but throwing off the summer evening chill. The food was excellent but it is very loud.
Our waiter Jason was excellent!
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
It was a date night fir my husband and I. It was a little loud but overall we had a very nice time. Our waiter was great and food was delicious!
Drink and appetizers were very good but both entrees were very disappointing. We both tried pasta dishes , maybe that was our mistake .
The service was great. The appetizers were very good. The entrees were good. The noise level was much too loid
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.
Food was ok at best. staff was nice but didn't pay us much attention. steak had no flavor.
A bit hard to hear conversation as the area we were in was somewhat loud.
Excellent food, large portions and consistent! Service also excellent!
Our waitress Liz was super friendly and efficient!! The food was incredible. A bit pricey!
great service, Alex our waiter, again, was extraordinary. Had 2 more guest and they loved it.
Good service and good food. Noise level was a bit too loud
Liz was such a great waitress! I will ask for her next time I go! The food is unbelievable! My new favorite place to eat ♥️
Food is always exceptional. Best Chicken Milanese around in my opinion. Service is always great, as it was on this visit.
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!!
We love the food and ambiance at Vespa. We have been going since they opened and will continue to go for years to come.
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.
We celebrated a graduation and we were very pleased with the quality of the food and service. Vespa is a great addition to Northport!
We enjoyed a great lunch, celebrating a graduation with our family. Our food was delicious and service was great.
First time visit and Vespa did not disappoint. Food and service was amazing an overall great value.
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.
Incredible experience, when other restaurants cannot get help and often the service is spotty. Vespa had an incredible efficient and friendly staff. All 4 of us loved. Going back many times. Food was better than expected.
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.
