    Lived in akron 5 years and never been! I can see why its so popular. We sat in the bar area, which was cozy, music was more pop rock, bar vibe. I'll look to try the dining room next time. The outdoor seating (covered and heated) seemed warm enough, and on a cold night, but still glad we were inside last night! The food was delish, decently priced for the quality. Service was attentive and on point. Will come back to just belly up to the bar and have a pizza myself. Would reccommend

    We returned to Vaccaros after several years for our wedding anniversary. It did not disappoint. Some things had changed since the last time we were there (Dec 2019) but all for the best. The service was excellent as were the starters. The entrees were good. An excellent place for our first date night in 4 years.

    We are regular customers, in that we get fabulous pizza take out from time to time, and then go for dinner a several times a year as well. Not cheap, but neither is the quality of the food. Their bolognese sauce is top notch as is their odd combination of a chicken parm with red sauce served with pasta in a ridiculous creamy white. Quite decadent. I've had their steak and it was also terrific. They almost always offer a few flavors of a very nice gelato and have a half price Tuesday on bottled wine with a good selection. Servers are always very good, very nice. A bit more on the high end as a restaurant and as such, never disappoints. One wish: They offer a grilled caesar on the dinner menu, but no longer a regular caesar, which I would enjoy.

    The hostess was very friendly and accommodating to arrange one additionaltable setting for our reservation. Our server was not very friendly, looked to be in a bad mood, but she did a fine job. Food was awesome, and didn't take all that long for a table of 7. House wine prices were commendable and wine was good. We were not hovered over - nor pressured to leave or give up our table although the place seemed full.

    We were delayed arriving for our reservation due to a highway accident. Vaccaro’s was very understanding and our table awaited us. Our server was likely done with her shift just before we arrived. The service was good, but not spectacular. Salads arrived before the appetizer. And, the entrees were good, but perhaps showing signs of being “end of shift.” The bright note was the bar service! Our wine was top notch! And, the cosmo was created to perfection. Once we moved into the bar to finish our evening, things were much better. We LOVE Vaccaro’s. We will go back for sure—the owner is a great guy and it is a family business. I would only encourage attention to every table regardless of when they arrive. It’s hard work, but if you’re serving, it’s part of the job. Every customer; every time - that’s the spirit!

    Vacarro's dinner service is always welcoming and friendly. We ordered the Ser Jacapo Brunello per the wine stewart's recommendation. It was a perfect pairing with our calamari, sea bass, lasagna and pasta. The goat cheese and apple salad was a great winter greens selection too. Our server was 100% on her game. I cannot wait to return to Vacarro's.

    First visit. Server was excellent. She knew the menu and very helpful in selecting our entrees. The bread was really good and the salad was also exceptional. I had lobster and shrimp pasta which I thought had incredible flavor. Can’t say anything negative. We will be back.

    We absolutely love Vacarro's. It's elegant, food and service wonderful. Seems more like a big city find dining Italian restaurant. Pastas are home made on site and you can taste the difference! It is pricey but worth the quality. I took off a star because it is hard to get to and you could easily pass the one entrance drive and find yourself back on the freeway. Please put an elegant sign near that one entrance for your customers.

    So good! Raphael and his team did it again! NEW MENU ITEMS! The cavatelli vodka sauce is amazing and I had it with marinara and meatballs. Amazing. The bread is uniquely superior in texture and taste. Half off wine Monday and Tuesday is such a value most especially because his wine list is exquisite. Thank you Raphael for what you bring to our community!

    A must visit! Too good! Best Italian restaurant in Cleveland / Akron area! The salmon piccata special was out of this world! The half off bottle of wine (no limit on cost of bottle like other restaurants have of $99 and below) is a must on Monday and Tuesdays! Let Raphael pick your wine for you, you won't be disappointed! Can't wait to book another Open Table reservation at Vaccaro's soon! They care for your every attention!

    I have dined in the bar area and enjoyed it. This time we were seated in what felt like the walkway to everywhere, between the doors coming in, the area across from the doors where staff was going in and out and then staff back and forth to the kitchen. We were seated close next to a large, loud group and could barely talk to each other. They did not have the pear martini I wanted my husband to try and it took nearly an hour to get our food. Yes there are staffing issues everywhere, but the one younger girl seemed to wander slowly around while our server was hustling. Our food was not hot when it arrived but we had to hurry and eat because we were going to be late picking up our son. Definitely not a good first impression for my husband, but we will try again and sit in the bar area next time.
