This was our first time. Upon being seated, we waited over 10 minutes as servers whizzed by, ignoring us. Finally, my husband went back to the check-in area and asked if someone would be helping us .. First impression, not great. This is where things really turned around. They apologized and quickly brought us drinks, on the house. From there on, service was great, and food was delicious. It was clearly just a miscommunication on their part, and they corrected the issue swiftly. We enjoyed our drinks and our meals (salmon special and pasta bolognese) and will definitely be returning to this local gem!

The lasagne and Nona Linda's eggplant were very good, but the Mediterranean salmon was disappointing: the risotto was so lemony that it overpowered everything else on the plate. And the bruschetta trio was good, but the bread was somewhere between crisp and fresh; it felt like day old bread.

Another great experience-the new menu is very simple with enough specials to satisfy any one-what I enjoy is that the chef will customize my order if i want him to.

They closed the restaurant for Covid and did not let us know. We had to scramble to find a place for a family dinner. We deserve some compensation.

The owner stopped at our table to greet us. In an era of poor or no service, our server was friendly and prompt. We were hosting friends who were impresssed.

First visit to Vaccaro’s. The restaurant is very nice inside, limited amount of tables it seemed so it was spacious. The recorded music being played was a bit loud but not overwhelming. We were greeted immediately by a friendly, kind, and interested hostess, who took the time to seat us comfortably (sorry, I didn’t get her name. We received excellent service from Kailia. She was attentive and brought the dishes out in a timely manner. We never felt rushed. The food was very tasty, well prepared and though of good quality might have been a little over priced. My wife had the petite medallions and I had the salmon shrimp pasta and we were very happy with the meals. They have a nice wine list and diners on Monday and Tuesday nights (like us) can get a bottle half-off. We will likely return.

My wife and I have been dining here off and on for many years, going back to when you had a couple of guys serenading the customers while eating. We both love Italian food and your restaurant rates number one with us for food, service, and comfort. Looking forward to coming back again.

Wed. Nite dinner every inside table filled, glad I had made reservations.
Food was very tasty, and very nicely presented, although the veal was a tad tough flavor was excellent.

Wonderful meal- our dishes exceeded expectations. Service and ambience was excellent. This place is a jewel and a fantastic value. We have been to most of the fine dining Italian restaurants in NE Ohio and this takes a back seat to none of them.

The food was incredible. I had timpano and my husband had lasagna bolognese. The portions were enough for leftovers. Kim was a top notch professional waitress and very personable. Thanks for my surprise, Kim! Best wine selection ever. The beautiful black and white decor with curtains are elegant. Just the perfect Italian restaurant.

It was super busy because it was Sweetest Day, which is also unfortunately our anniversary, so probably not the best judge of an average day. The All-beef Polpetti were the Best meatballs I have ever had. We had lobster pasta and veal picatta as our entrees. Both were very good with nice portions.

The owner was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Great family owned place.

Definitely will go back.
