THE gold standard for authentic Italian!
Great food, great service! The owner walks around and greets everyone, makes excellent wine suggestions! Lots of variety on the menu. Authentic gelato! Highly recommend!
Great food and service. Portion sizes were perfect.
We've been in the area a long time and never tried this until this weekend. We were very impressed with the food and service. Rosie was our server and she was awesome. Prices are reasonable, ambiance was decent. We will be back.
As always they did not disappoint! Food amazing, service was wonderful! Can’t wait to go back!
Food was excellent and had a great experience overall. Everyone was very friendly and I would definitely go back.
Great dining at a very affordable price.
2 meals in our party included shrimp, which was omitted and pointed out to server then eventually added to table. Later after we left another person in our party noticed after the fact that the Italian/pizza ingredients were omitted from his steak pizzola(sp?). That’s unacceptable for a restaurant like this.
We went to Viccaros for our anniversary. We felt completely safe in the restaurant and the ambiance was warm and appealing. The food was excellent and the service was attentive and efficient.
Best italian food in Akron but some of the worst service you'll find. Owner catered to certain tables, even sitting with them for periods, while service significantly lagged at other tables. No observation of any manager-level staff looking after the dining room to ensure there were drinks, bread, attentive service, etc. Waited 25 minutes after being seated for even a drink order; never offered bread, my first drink was taken from the table before I was even finished with it. All around terrible service. Again, tremendous food you won't find anywhere else within miles but the service mitigates the overall culinary experience...such a disappointment, especially on Valentines Day.
Excellent food and service! We both enjoyed the Valentine’s Day dinner!
Had a wonderful Valentine's Night dinner. Service was good, food was great, as usual. Enjoyed a little chat with Raphael about Ripasso wines as well what they have done to succeed as a business during the pandemic.
What's particularly nice there is that you can actually have a conversation with your dinner companion(s) because of the moderate noise level. So many places these days are all hard surfaces everywhere in the restaurant and they are overbearingly noisy. Not at Vaccaro's.
They have added some seating "outside" by putting thick plastic "curtains" along the pillars on the front of the building along with individual table controlled heaters. All of those tables were filled Saturday as well. Good for them!!
Excellent! Love the food!! Highly recommend!
Made reservation at least 4-days in-advance for Friday evening and they sat us in the bar area, which was very loud and people standing in bar area and near our table. Not a positive experience. There was room in main seating area when we arrived too. Take out orders were high and waitress told us kitchen backed up so could be awhile before entrees come out. Food good.
Vaccaro's once again provided a very nice dining experience for me and my wife. Service is always excellent, but it bears mention that we had the pleasure of being served for the first time by Rosie and she was a delight.
We love dining at Vaccaro’s! It’s an inviting restaurant with outstanding house made food. My husband and I both ordered the evening’s specials. We thoroughly enjoyed them. The ample portions allowed us to enjoy them for lunch the next day too! 😊 Our server, Rob, was delightful! So friendly and caring. We had enjoyed him the last time we dined at Vaccaro’s.
Our first visit and we thought the food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back and try other items.
Keep up the great work! Love to support our local community restaurants.
It was evident to us that all precautions were being taken to insure a safe and enjoyable evening during this time of pandemic. The staff was very professional. The food was perfect. The menu was carefully chosen with many of the signature dishes we remember from pre COVID days. It was a great evening out, something we do rarely right now!
My wife and I had another excellent dinner experience at Vaccaro’s. Excellent food, great drinks, enjoyable ambience and blue ribbon service from Kamryn were all greatly appreciated.
The entrees were well thought, excellent ingredients, prepared timely and the presentation was amazing. The owner visited are table and was gracious and insightful. We will recommend this restaurant to whomever enjoys great italian food.
Excellent restaurant, best in town
The food was fantastic! Our server, cameron, was very professional and fun! The only complaint was that the food took extremely long to get.
We enjoyed it immensely! Fantastic server, great atmosphere, yummy food. Will definitely be backed
Lucky to have such a wonderful restaurant in the Medina-Akron area
Great Italian and the best pizza, all in house pasta and sauces. Nice wine list.
Loved it!!! Great experience & the food was amazing! Will be back soon!
We have always been pleased with our experiences at Vaccaro’s. The drinks, wine, food and service were all excellent as usual. We have enjoyed their takeout during Covid, but this time we chose to dine in. All precautions were taken, and we felt quite safe. We will most certainly return.
Excellent food, there was not a single bite I didn’t enjoy. The staff was very friendly. The atmosphere was great quiet they sat us at a nice table with large comfortable chairs. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or quiet date night.
Alfredo pasta's chicken smelled really bad. The lasagna was okay. They were both overpriced for the quality, and the place's atmosphere did not really make up for it. The music volume was good and the server was polite too.
Great service, great food and atmosphere at a great value!
took advantage of a bonus summer day in November. While the weather is hard to count on, Rafael Vaccaro's is always a sure bet. the Osso Buco was great!!
We loved our evening at Vaccaro's (again). We tried two of their specials, me the scallops and my wife the swordfish. Both were outstanding. The scallops were large and tender and the sauce was a killer. They also allowed us to split a salad at no extra charge. It's nice to go to a restaurant where you can actually hear each other talk. These days that's a rarity, both in terms of restaurant design (most place are full of hard surfaces that don't absorb any noise) as well as diners who think they can take over a place with loud talk and loud laughs.
Our server Rob was efficient and helpful.
They recently redid the bar and made it larger. We just gave it a quick glance on the way in. Looked "popular" to say the least.
They also honored my request for a quieter table which was recognized on my OT reservation. The hostess also congratulated us on our belated anniversary which I also had noted on the OT reservation.
All in all, a vey nice, quiet evening. Thanks Vaccaro's team!
As always, Vaccaro’s hit the Mark and we had a wonderful experience. The service from Rob was top notch.
Jarod was a perfect host. Every employee in our section was pleasant a courteous.
Thank you for all that you do during these trying times.
Great meal, really nice combination of flavors from unusual vegtatables combo. Great wine list. Owner is friendly and helpful. Definitely will return!
Everything was absolutely delicious from the foccacia bread and olive oil to the pizza to the fish entrees. A real treat to eat here. We are lucky to have Vaccaros! in our local area, it is so different from eating at an Italian chain restaurant.
another great experience--Raphael really has done a great job with his remodel and with his menu items. reasonably priced and great food.
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner... they made it special
Always a Home Run. Food, service and wine they have it all. You are never disappointed.
