    It was "retail wine night" - always a great value for their terrific selection of wines. The food was superb. We had a wonderful time with some longtime friends. The quiet of the enclosed patio made it possible, given my hearing issues. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. Other customers were friendly and thoughtful, seemed to be enjoying their experience as much as we did ours!

    Food was excellent. I had the lamb special 2 hours- total. 30 minutes before wine came. 45 minutes till food came. Very unusual for Vaccaros. Usually service excellent. I would normally not fill out comments- hit no one checked on delays nor apologized.

    The food and service were excellent. The chicken Parmesan was outstanding, and so were the meatballs for an appetizer. We made reservations at the last minute, but next time will try to make them several days ahead, to get better seating. We were seated outside in the enclosed area in the front of the restaurant. It felt a little like sitting in a fishbowl because the tables ran alongside the front windows of the restaurant. Other than that, it was a great meal and we will be back.

    Vaccaro’s is one of our favorite restaurants! To start dinner, I had a Manhattan — probably one of the best I have ever had! They also have a great selection of house wines, so we got one of their red blends. I had the lobster/seafood pasta and my wife had their world-famous lasagna — wow! The sauce for the lobster/pasta seafood was so rich and tasty - and the noodles were just fantastic. Our server Elise was fantastic and had a bunch of great suggestions. The atmosphere is always wonderful and their cannolis make for a fantastic dessert. Well worth the money — and I think way better than any other restaurant in the area.

    I was very upset to be put outside on the patio or whatever it is called . I made a reservation for the inside restaurant for my fiend and I. I enjoy the atmosphere of inside. I feel like you should have a choice or a say when making reservations whether the patio thing is okay, etc. Disappointed. Food and server was good at least.

    We did not have waitress come to our table for 15 or more minutes. My wife had to go talk to someone before anyone came out to take our drink order. The waitress we got was good. My food was very good, but my wife was not crazy about her meal. They gave a lot of food-I can probably get 3 meals out of the serving. Salad was NOT included in the price and at $10/per, I felt that was overpriced.

    Booked our reservation for our 3 year anniversary- which happens to fall on Valentine’s day, back in December. We were super excited to try somewhere new and have heard wonderful things about Vaccaro’s. Host was amazing. Server lead with “you guys are in luck because you got the new person” , she went over the menu specials and essentially talked us out of them because she said she wasn’t a fan of how it was served & presented, she mentioned they weren’t what she expected. It was very slow where we were sitting in the bar area and it looked like we were one of 3/4 tables she had. She talked to the table next to us for 10 minutes and forgot about my second drink i ordered, when she finally checked on us she verbalized “ did i not get you that second drink? sorry i was born with the gift of gab” so i assumed she went and got my drink that had been sitting for 10 minutes as it wasn’t cold anymore. We do not go out to dinner unless it’s special occasions so it is disheartening to have experiences like this, next time we go back we will DEFINITELY sit at the bar as those gals seemed to have it down. Dont get me wrong the server was very nice but if when 2 people fine in their tab comes out to $150 maybe there should be a little more professionalism involved in the service.

    We enjoyed a wonderful meal and some great wines recommended by our server. We ate in the enclosed patio area near the entrance, very comfortable and low noise levels (I have hearing problems). Server was friendly and efficient. Raphael Vaccaro stopped by our table to say hello and greet our guests.

    Arrived at 540 for a 545 reservation. 2 of 4 dinners were served at 7:05 2 more 5 minutes later. Waitress said kitchen was behind: but at 545 restaurant was pretty empty. Maybe they were swamped with takeout orders and decided to neglect seated guests.

    I had a wonderful evening dining with a dear friend. The restaurant is charming and very comfortable. The accoustics are good and allowed us to get caught up. We both had the Lobster and Shrimp Pasta and it was worth my 45 minute drive to Vaccaro's. Raphael made the rounds checking with customers and making us feel like old friends.
