Really pedestrian food. Sauces would were sweet and the chicken Parm was under seasoned and rubbery. Pizza crust was poor, very dense and tasteless.

We booked a reservation and invited guests from out of town to our favorite neighborhood spot. This was the first time we had a fairly bad experience.

Disappointing with party room noise & dining room. Went to celebrate a birthday but never was asked (even though stated there for a birthday) to bring a desert or anything. Arrived in time for 845 pm reservation and table was not ready for over half hour. Food was just ok & not worth value

This was my third time visiting this restaurant but this time was different in a very good way! We appreciate the service of our waitress but the hostess was who made us feel so good and for me that made a good impact when you get a any restaurant and you feel welcoming and you received the attention like you are important to us. Michelle was so kind and warm hostess I never had even in NY.. I asked her the days she be there for me to go and see her. I’m glad that this restaurant is getting such a nice people as a crew member that really makes every costumers special and welcoming:)

The food was absolutely incredible! I especially recommend the avocado toast bruschetta. The restaurant is beautiful. The only aspect of my evening that was not perfect is how rushed out the door we were. If the restaurant is accepting reservations until 9:30 we should not be forced to order immediately due to the kitchen closing, reservation options should not be available this late when this is the case. We were not even giving an option for dessert despite booking the reservation stating it was a birthday dinner. I would highly recommend for the food only if you get out of work before 9pm and can go earlier.

We were in the area for business and looked for a pizza restaurant. What a great find. The food was flavorful, and service was warm and friendly and the prices were reasonable.

Food is fresh and good. On tap beers are unique and flavorful. Pasta a bit overpriced but fairly competitive considering it is an upscale restaurant. Recommended.

Menu is very good with lots of options. Service seemed a little scattered at times. Food was slow to come out the kitchen. However, wasn’t a major issue for us since we were not in a rush and food was tasty.

We were not aware that it was Trivia night and were unprepared for the loudness of the music. The outdoor tent was sloppy, with stuff stored at the end, where we were seated. Not much in the way of ambiance. Food and service were good, not great. I would recommend this place as a casual night out for friends who like trivia but not as a birthday celebration, as we planned.

The only disappointment was the wine selection. Only had one of each type by the glass. I tried the Pinot Grigio and Chardonnay but didn’t care for either one.

Vesta has been our go to place when in the area. Their dishes are prepared perfectly using the best quality ingredients.
Our recent visit was extra special. There was a police incident in the neighborhood which required the restaurant to evacuate. Surprisingly we were unable to move our car because the bomb squad cordoned off the area where we parked so we hung out with the staff around the corner. Once the police gave the all clear we decided to go back inside and continue our meal! The staff didn’t miss a beat! The owner was kind enough to comp us a drink and our pizza which he certainly didn’t have to do. A special thanks to Edmund who looked out for us the entire incident. Hopefully our next Vesta meal will be less eventful!

We sat outside on a Thursday and participated in the JoeTrivia night. Seating was under a large tent and comfortable. Food (pizza) was delicious along with the crispy artichoke app. Our server could have paid more attention but she was nice. JoeTrivia was a lot of fun and we ended up winning a free app. Would definitely go back.

You should go check out this restaurant for some great pizzas and the specials. Make sure to go check out the yummy dishes with such great service in a very comfortable atmosphere. The sampling of three pizzas were delicious: something for everyone. Also order the clam chowder, meatballs, mussels, and swordfish special. Save room for peanut butter pie and Italian cheesecake.
