    This is always a favorite spot of mine. The service is superb. The Chardonnay was an excellent choice. Bronzino was cooked in a delicious, light red sauce, cresh cooked string beans, peppers. Shrimp & linguini excellent.

    I would definitely recommend Vetro. The service was amazing . The waiter was very helpful and attentive. Everything was delicious. I had the salmon and my husband had shrimp santino. We enjoyed the mini cannolis for dessert. They gave us a card and put confetti on our table for our anniversary celebration. If you want to celebrate any special occasion, this is a beautiful restaurant.

    Chose Vetro for a birthday celebration on a Friday evening and it was incredible. We had not been there before. From being warmly greeted to receiving excellent service it was a perfect evening. I started out with a garden salad (specially made due to dietetic requirements) and my guest had a spicy pasta dish for appetizer. For the main course I enjoyed garlic crusted salmon and my partner had pork chop - both were amazing. Topped it off with apple cobbler and gelato - which was enough to share. By the way, the specially crafted cocktails were top notch as well. In the background a singer entertained us the whole night long. Please give Vetro by Russo's on the Bay a try for your next special occasion or night out. I know that you will become a regular. Thank you Vetro's for such a special dinner that will not be soon forgotten.

    Food and service outstanding. Liquor too expensive. A bottle of Stella Rosa Moscato at a liquor store is $11.99 at Vetro $55. In my opinion, that price is an exaggeration.

    Dinner was delicious and the service was outstanding beginning with the lovely and helpful hostess. We had to keep pushing our reservation back as we were driving down from DC and traffic was miserable. They were very understanding. All in all a lovely experience and the weather was perfect to enjoy outdoor waterfront dining . We’ll definitely be back. Thanks for a great evening!

    With a name that includes Russo’s on the Bay, you would think that it would be above par…..not so! We started with the baked clams, which quite frankly were mediocre. They were not piping hot as one would expect if cooked properly and broiled to a sizzling top crisp just before serving - instead they were warm and somewhat mushy. I had the special lamb which was pretty good, however it was served with Very oily broccoli rabe and instant tasting mashed potatoes. The service was non existent, and we waited forever to get a check and even longer to check out. I felt like I had checked in to Hotel California. Needless to say I will never return. Best part of the evening was spending time with friends. Update: The Manager called to inquire about the review. I did appreciate the concern, and I did let him know that the hostess was wonderful and accommodated our seating request.
