Our dinner at Vago was perfect! The service and the food were excellent. All 4 of us started with the soup of the day a delicious tomato soup. Theee of us then had perfectly prepared and very tasty veal parmigiana. One person had the sea bass. He was also very pleased with his dinner. We had a nice bottle of wine and ended the meal with expressos and cappuccinos. Service though out was excellent . A perfect meal on a cold winter night!

The restaurant has a good ambiance and good service but very average food considering the high prices. We started with a tomato and buffalo salad where the tomatoes were not quite ripe enough but the cheese and dressing were quite good. The grilled octopus appetizer was quite good. Our main dishes were the cavatelli with sausage and rapini and the gnocchi with sausage and truffle butter sauce. Both dishes were quite bland with too much salt and too much oil. We were expecting much better food from a supposedly authentic Italian Restaurant.

Dinner New Years Eve. Food was good...mussels, shrimp, salad and veal. Service good too. Problem was we were at a corner table in the small room at the back. There was a table of 12 nearby. As the wine rolled they became louder and louder. The noise reverberated off the walls until it became impossible to hear my wife a couple of feet away. I couldn’t wait to leave.

We were 6 people dining. Food was phenomenal! We ordered a wide variety of appetizers (calamari, truffle garlic bread, prosciutto, beef tartare, caprese salad, grilled octopus) and mains (lamb ragu pasta, gnocchi, chicken parmesan, veal chop, piri piri shrimp, branzino) to share. Food was fresh, homemade and absolutely delicious.

Service was a different story. Waiter kept trying to upsell and even brought the wrong, more expensive bottle of wine because he "misunderstood". Left a bad taste in our mouths. We didnt say anything but would hesitate coming back because of the waiter's sly move.

Food was fantastic though!

We were very disappointed with this restaurant. The room was attractive and comfortable and we had a nice table. The wait staff was friendly but very aloof as we left. We were not asked how we enjoyed the meal as we walked out. We had international guests and the food was embarassing and overpriced. The bread was brought to the table after the appetizers, the ravioli was clearly not the "home made" as stated on the menu and was under-cooked. All of the pastas were swimming in a very commercial pedestrian sauce. I would have expected better food in a diner. The wine was warm and tasted like it had been improperly stored. I will not return.

We had a girls lunch this week to celebrate our friend's new career. We loved the ambiance. The food was fantastic. The staff were amazing. We sat and chatted long after our meal and never felt pressured to leave. I have been to this restaurant a few other times; mostly for lunch and once for dinner. It is always a great experience!

I came here for a dinner with friends we were a group of 4 people and noticeably the youngest ones in the restaurant. We got their at 6:50 with a reservation, and did not have our order taken until an hour after being seating, we sat there constantly ignored by our waiter. When our waiter walked by the table he would turn his back and avoid eye contact. However, tables with older guests who arrived after us both ordered and received their meals before us. The service we received compared to the way older guest were treated was so unprofessional, and left us very disappointed. The food was spectacular, but nothing could make up for not only the lack of attention but also rudeness of the waiter. So much potential in this restaurant, if only all guests were treated with the same attention, and proper customer service was actually received.

Vago never fails to be very good. There's a huge difference between very good and outstanding so I cannot really give 5 stars, but would give 4 1/2 for food and ambience.

The overall ambience is really nice since they renovated.

Service is professional and knowledgable.

We come here often and never leave unhappy.

Highly recommend this restaurant.

Our first time at VAGO and what a breath of fresh air! The food was delicious and freshly prepared. My wife and I shared the VAGO salad, more than enough for two. Main, I went with their home made pasta "Vago Special Sauce" -this was a simple bolognese seasoned with fresh herbs, it's making me hungry thinkin about it. Wife enjoyed her linguine with prosciutto and porcini, think it was call Gigi...not certain. Service was impeccable make sure to reserve a table.
