I have never written a review before, however I feel that after experiencing Vespri Siciliani, I must. The owner, Tomas, was inviting and extremely accommodating as well were the entire wait staff, especially Luca. The food was impeccably prepared and delicious! We will most definitely return to this fabulous new find!!

From the moment all 10 of my guests we walked to Vespri's open and very comfortable space, we felt right at home. They work as a great team and knowing it was my daughter's birthday, made the right kind of fuss. Food was outstanding- the stuffed calamari and fried calamari and shrimp were tasty and plentiful appetizers. Salads were large enough to be shared. Presentation of the salted Branzino flamed and filleted was spectacular. All of the entrees were spot on- Chicken Marsala, Veal Pizzaiolo, Gnocchi with black truffle and the Veal Chop. Delightful wine selection and the bartender came from behind the bar to make sure our glasses were always full.

A definite go to experience that will will look forward to visiting again.

This place better not get too popular since I want to eat here at least once a week. Every one in my party loved the food, the pasta was amazing, the appetizer of octopus was outstanding just the right char, we loved the toasted bread served from the pizza oven. The specials were brazini baked in salt omg delicious and the presentation was beautiful . Please don't go here I don't want it to get too crowded and I being selfish in not sharing. Ya think.. Anyway love this place, felt like I was back in Sicily.

Hi William, i'm so sorry you didn't have the same experience of all other people. We are not serving bread but focaccia from the wood fire oven .The plate that came with the welcome bruschetta is a sicilian ceramic handmade and is not ridiculus, ridicolus is rating 73 out of 100....so funny. We buy high quality of products and the staff in the kitchen is all professionals. I hope you come back and retry our food. thank you Vespri Siciliani

Did not need a reservation during the week. Very friendly staff - beef carpaccio very fresh -cheese could be a stronger kind - the Bronzini was excellent finished cooking at the table and it was excellent - had it with pasta olive oil and garlic - complete turn around from when they opened - will go back to try others dishes.

Ridiculous noise level from a table of 8 with children that were running wild. No one cared to ask them to quiet down, or even go to their seats. Very disruptive to what we had hoped to be an enjoyable Meal.
Manager seemed to be hiding whenever there was a problem in the dining room, he obviously was not there to support his staff.
Our pizza we ordered no one put the actual order in for us. As we sat waiting for it to arrive after our appetizers, no one thought to check on us?
It’s a shame... food is delicious. Management is really lacking

The service was excellent and the food very good. Our appetizers were a mixed italian salad, eggplant parmegian, and clams in a very fresh tasting tomato sauce. Mains were Lasagne, meatballs and spaghetti and veal with eggplant and pasta. Everything was delicous. For dessert we shared one order of Tiramisu that was a little too mushy. House wine, pino noir and a cab were perfect. The service was friendly and excellent.

Food was okay, but the service was not. My wife asked for her salad (dressing on side) to be brought out with her pasta meal, not before when I was having my appetizer. That seemed to be too confusing to the staff. They brought out her pasta before anything else. So they took it away and made some remark about bringing it back when they served the salmon. But neither of us ordered salmon. When things got straightened out, and her salad was served with dressing, we were too tired and hungry to complain. On the other hand, the bread and pasta were quite good. Overall, we'd try it again...probably to try the pizza. And beware that the seats are hard wooden chairs which are not very comfortable if you're planning a long, leisurely meal.

We have lived in Boca for several months and finally tried Vespri. It’s a great place. The food was wonderful and a great value. Service was great too. We’ve been back several times to try other things on the menu and have been pleased every time. Love the place.
