Too f--king loud!!!!
Server could not hear us order.
Having been invited to stay with friends in Italy over the summer, my husband and I wanted to take them to a nice Italian restaurant in the area as a thank you. Vespa got good reviews so we decided to take them there. Food was just okay - nothing at all special. Won't go back again.
Service was terrible. I had a reservation and was promptly seated. The waitress did not come to take my drink order. I had to go back up front and complain about not being served. The bread was served cold. The food was mediocre
AC was out inside the restaurant, but fortunately, it was a nice evening and we could dine outside. We've been coming here for decades. Almost always an enjoyable experience and good, if not terribly imaginative, food. The menu hasn't changed in years.
Air conditioner was broken so very hot and food was not cooked well
Thankful there was a back room. The main dining area had a broken air conditioning unit. Food was good although my husband ordered eggplant Parmesan expecting it to come with pasta. No pasta. Restaurant was so hot the red wine he ordered was "hot" so he sent it back. Also, didn't have the cleanest appearance!
This will be quick. Walked in and advised no AC. It's 95 degrees outside. Why didn't we leave? Tried to use the gift card. Was told gift card can't be used on WED Special Nights. Ordered anyway. My Dates Chicken came to us uncooked. Not undercooked...but uncooked. That's just dangerous. Experience was so bad they decided not to charge us for the meal. Good call. Only upside on this one was the poor waitress who did her best to represent her employer well. She got a good tip anyway. Next Tip...Don't go to this restaurant.
Vespa is a Chapel Hill gem and always they have exceeded expectations with food and service.
First time there and I was impressed. Service was great, food was hot and delicious. Will defiantly return. Our waitress Savanna was exceptional.
Our meals were delicious and our waiter was very attentive. Nice atmosphere.
Will be missed!
My husband and I have been here on many occasions! Weather permitting, their sidewalk dining is truly lovely. We've never been disappointed in the food or the service but this particular evening the wait staff became incredibly busy and detracted a bit from the overall dining experience. The young lady, Savannah, was doing an awesome job trying to take care of everyone's needs! This was an isolated experience for us, since usually there is plenty of competent and friendly wait staff available.
Wonderful food, friendly staff. Great deal on Wednesday nights. One of my favorites.
Hearher was our server and she was outstanding. the food was so good, they take pride in using food from their own garden. everything was perfect. authentic Italian, not fake like olive garden.
Wonderful Italian food at Vespa with a friendly server who was very attentive. We had the Veal Scaloppine Piccata and Pork Loin entrees. Both were excellent. Our server made a great recommendation- the chef special dessert - a Peach Panna Cotta that was amazing, just the right balance of sweetness. Bar service requests were accomplished with a dash of clever personality. Really nice evening and I would definitely recommend.
My husband and I absolutely love this little restaurant and they have a wonderful menu - especially of you love salmon . The wine is good too . Not to mention that we went on a Friday night and the Franklin street area was a good experience . Its very quaint and cozy and I surely like the calmness of it all - totally good for a date night but it also welcomes good behaving kids.
The food was rather bland. Glad I had a Groupon because I would have been upset to pay that price for the quality of the food
It is a delight to have such a wonderfully delicious restaurant in our area!
Great for sitting outside in the evening--just like Rome!
New waitress Heather was amazing. Knew menu and made great recommendations. While food good as always, her personality totally sold the experience. We will be coming back and requesting her as our waitress.
