    The food, drinks, service, and environment were perfect. The food was amazing. We started with the cheese tasting board and the Russo balls. We order the veal and shrimp with crabmeat. We had a few drinks. We ended the night with coffee and the cannoli. We were not rushed out and enjoyed everything.

    Big disappointment! I made reservations in March for Mother's Day brunch after reviewing the menu. Two days before Mother's Day I called to confirm my reservation and they mentioned their typical menu wasn't available, as it had been changed to a pre-fix menu. In addition to that, we'd no longer be able to enjoy brunch because the pre-fix brunch menu ended at 1 pm. The reservations I made back in March were for 1:30 pm/brunch. Needless to say, two days before Mother's Day it would be hard to find a place for 7 ppl and I decided to try it. Definitely not worth the price! Food was boring and limited. They should guests to choose between pre-fix and regular menu.

    I’ve eaten at hundreds of Italian restaurants in my lifetime but I must say my linguine and clams was exquisite!!! Fresh, abundant garlic, fresh clams, the sauce and pasta was by far the best I ever had. The waiter was extremely knowledgeable, polite and professional. I live in CT but I shall return and will recommend to all my friends and family.

    In search of some good clams oreganata, I found this gem and can't say enough about it. Not only were the clams excellent, we had the pollo griglia, spaghetti puttanesca, and rigatoni Norma and it was all scrumptious! The food was only part of the story, JP and Pure provided top notch service and were 2 steps ahead with service right up to helping us hail our Uber. If you're in the area or staying at JFK and would like a delicious Italian meal, Vetro is your place. Also wonderful for a special occasion. Thank you to the entire staff.

    We celebrated our parents anniversary. The staff made them feel so special especially with a surprise dessert. We all enjoyed the appetizers, although I hope they bring back the artichoke appetizer. My daughter wants them to bring back the Ossobuco, but she really loved the homemade cavateli! My husband said his steak was great and my dad really enjoyed the orecchiette pasta. My mom and I had the striped bass special but with opposite opinions. My mom loved it and ate every last bite. I did not enjoy mine at all. It was too salty and too fishy tasting for me. I did enjoy the string beans and potatoes very much. Overall it was a wonderful night with great food, great service and great drinks. We always enjoy our dinners here and always come back for more. In fact we love it so much we have booked two dinner parties this year at Vetro. Thank you and see you soon!

    I love fresh Cavatelli with Bolognaise sauce. It hasn’t been in the menu in a while, although I ask about whenever I go and they do make it for me. The table next to me was wondering what I was eating, she asked, I told her, she said it’s not on the menu. I said I asked for it and they made it for me. Her and her husband asked about it and they accommodated them as well and loved it. I’m never ever disappointed at Vetro’s. We always over order and we manage to eat everything. We haven’t been there since Covid started so we asked for a table in the corner.
