I flew into JFK - landed at 9p and was hungry. The restaurant is abt 15 min away. The food was excellent, recommendations by the wait staff were all perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal despite the late hour. The valet is a cool dude who is an excellent face to the restaurant when you first drive up and he’s the last one you see when you leave. I live in Portland OR so not a regular. When I am flying through JFK, will definitely return./

We enjoyed dining at Vetro’s for a family reunion. This was Sunday Brunch Service, so menu was lighter and so was the price. Both seemed to reflect each other. Food was tasty, but ordinary, so even here you get what you pay for. In that respect I would say there is a lot of room for smart competition. What is difficult to beat is service and style. The building and the interior are built with panache, and that goes a long way against local dining scene, mostly confined to unremarkable venues. Personnel was smartly dressed and exceptionally courteous, a nice change. But here too, one finds room for improvement - Service was slow. Overall, Vetro is still by far the best venue in the area, but young startups should be unafraid to beat it on food quality and variety, and also better service. Simply put, Vetro is ordinary food in an upmarket presentation. If you are looking for ambiance and good service this is for you. But if you are looking for new and exciting food and more contemporary service - Vetro is quite passé.

Everything was great, however, one caution to everyone, apparently they do not have high chairs or booster seats for children. They require you to bring your Childs stroller into the restaurant.

I booked dinner here for a business meeting near JFK Airport. If you know the area, it’s not that easy to find a fine restaurant ! Well, look no further. This place is well done. Valet Parking, a beautiful Bar and living room like space and superb Italian food.

Our client was tired after a week of travel and work but he lit up when he saw and tasted the food here. Its top notch !

The place is quiet, the service is good and the food authentic. If you are looking for a fine Italian meal near JFK, this will hit the mark. Not a bad pitstop on the way for a late-night international flight !

Have been going there since day one, and I still walk out of ther with this satisfied feeling. The employees are all very warm and courteous and they remember you. The food is very good the sauces are not over powering,you actually get to taste the flavors of the food the salt level is perfect for people who eat very little salt like myself. Overall great place for eating great place for dancing, I also had my 65th birthday there and it was fabulous

The best food for your buck. The brunch experience is a great one. Excellent selections, outstanding quality and plenty of food to leave you full. The only downside was the wait time between each course seemed extremely long. But overall extremely pleased! Special thank you to our server Eric who went above and beyond to make our birthday celebration and brunch extra special! We most certainly will be back again.

Vetro tries to be upscale but misses the mark.
Service is non-existent; it took the busboy 10 minutes to bring anything on the table; followed by the waiter about 15+ minutes in total before we even saw a menu! Waiter was knowledgable about the daily specials.
Food was OK, served on hot plates; the veal was tough and mediocre.
Hot water served was brown; busboy apologized, took the cups away but never returned with replacements. By this time we were ready to leave.
At the front desk, receptionist could not locatetthe take home bag; she had to go into the kitchen; not delivered to the front coat checkout beforehand.
If you want to spend two hours for a simple two course dinner, this is the place to go;
God forbid if the dining room was full; It may take a whole evening!.

What was efficient; the valet parking. A ticket wasn't even required; my vehicle was out in front when I exited the restaurant and attendant immediately drove it up.

I am never disappointed at Vetro. The food is always so delicious, using high quality ingredients, in creative preparations. The service is professional. The decor is lovely and the option to eat outdoors in the summer, on the canal, enhances the experience. We also enjoy the live music in the lounge on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights. We return to Vetro again and again.
