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.

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!

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.

While the food was still decent, this is the second time we’ve gone here and the quality wasn’t at the same level it was when we first started going here. Calamari was cold (again) and while the feature dish (Blackened Chilean
Sea Bass) tasted great the small quantity was disappointing.

Rose served us Friday (10/9) evening. She served my wife and I 4 months ago, and she remembered us without us prompting her. Great memory!

Rose was personable and professional Friday and 4 months ago. She earned the highest marks both nights.

Our meals were outstanding. The Super Tuscan with Stuffed Peppers, Nonna’s Eggplant and Veal Marsala...tasty, relaxing and comfortable. It was all topped off with the cherry gelato.

It was a good evening. Thanks to Rose, the owner, chef and everyone else for your efforts to make our night.

Food was presented looking beautiful. The calamari was the only dish I would not order again. The sea bass was amazing! The bruschetta appetizer was awesome.
Service was good but one thing I did not like. We asked for a recommendation on a Brunello wine. He brought out a $210 bottle when all the bottles on the menu were around $100. Very tacky.

Food as always was fantastic and plentiful. Karen selected a great wine. I took my wife for a nice romantic birthday dinner. The only drawback was a larger group not above guidelines but very noisy.

We had an old fashioned standard – Timpano, and a new special Salmon salad.
Both were great.

Raphael picked a great Italian wine for us that didn't break the bank.

It was great. Restaurant felt full but safe. Bar experience was good and dinner was delicious. Have always thought prices are a bit high.....especially things like side salads.

Excellent, small, locally owned restaurant. Varied menu but the pasta is superb.
The owner makes the rounds to say hello. Nice touch.
