    I live close to Vidalia so it is a neighborhood restaurant for me but it is still one of the best Italian restaurants I know. On this occasion I dined on one of their standard appetizers [Artichokes Francese] which we shared and a special [seafood pasta with a pesto cream sauce]. Like many Italian restaurants their real main menu is the specials which are usually excellent. If the weather permits dine in the patio which more spacious and open than the main dining room

    Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, delicious food, creative and diverse menu. Garlic bread a bit on the bitter side- other than that, everything was delicious and served hot and in a timely fashion!

    Service was horrible. It took over 10 minutes before a server came to the table. Food took over an hour to arrive. Runners were consistently bringing food to wrong tables. Food was poorly seasoned and over priced for the quality served. My wife’s veal had fat grizzle on it. The mashed potatoes were fresh obviously sitting out in the kitchen under a warmer

    We had a terrific time at Vidalia. They were busy, but we were not rushed, and the food was outstanding. The servers were on top of everything without being overbearing. We can't wait to go back!

    Booked 5 weeks in advance for heated patio because I had toddlers and did not want them to disrupt inside because it’s so small. When I arrived I was moved to inside without being even asked. My toddlers were backing their chairs into people because it was so tight. When I questioned why my reaervation was moved to inside, I was told because it rained. How is that my problem? Move the people who opted to take a chance on the weather and select outside. Don’t move me a regular customer who reserved the correct spot 5 weeks in advance. Not even an apology from the hostess…. Just oh well it rained!
