Vaso Azzurro Ratings and Reviews
Went there for a “special date” night out. Our server managed to screw up our drink order, then screwed up our entrees, hardly checked on us during the meal, failed to offer us a dessert menu, then never brought us the after dinner drinks we ordered from a different waiter—He did, however, manage to get the undelivered drinks on our bill, which I thought was nice. The food was good, not great, but the service was so unbelievable we just left laughing. Not Recommended.
Every time my family dines at Vaso Azzurro, it is a wonderful experience. Michael, Alan and the whole crew are exceptional. The food is to die for, the service is great and the live music is a huge plus, where Mark will serenade you with a classic song. Let them know it's your birthday. Your get a great surprise!
It was very good food nice ambience, lively but not excessively noisy. I like the place.
Service was a touch slow on the front end, but not bad since it was getting busy. Puzzling was the food was run to the table not by the waitress (not unusual) but no one ever followed up to see if everything was ok (it was but no matter). Then when we were getting a little impatient for the check maybe 40 minutes after the food was a served and 10-15 after plates cleared, I flagged a busboy. Still no check 10-15 minutes later so I got his eye again and then our waitress brought it reasonably quickly which was the first time she had come by since the order. She said something like “leaving so soon?” Which might have been a joking acknowledgement she had forgotten us, or maybe serious; It was not clear. Mistakes happen and I have eaten here once before with no problem so I am considering this as a one off error and will return.
Very good vegetarian choices. Live band on Sat night and possibly other nights. Good service. I had the mushroom ravioli eith Alfredo sauce and my wife had penne with vegetables. No kids menu but you can get half orders for 70% of the full order cost. Food is a bit pricey.
I had chicken piccata. My husband has veal Marsala. All entrees came with the same sides - mashed potatoes and vegetables. My meal was okay. This is my second time at this restaurant. It’s okay but with so many restaurants in this area I’ll try a different restaurant next time.
Pasta was overcooked, sauce was supposed to be spicey but wasn't, could barely see the 5 small pieces of eggplant supposed to be in the sauce, maitre d treated me abruptly and harshly, live music was way too loud for the space, salad was small, over all the experience was over priced. Good things were healthy pour in glass of wine and waiter was good
The interior of the restaurant was great and the ambiance was lively! Food was just ok... Nothing spectacular! What really made the experience questionable was the snarly waiter who felt compelled to ask if our group had a reservation SEVERAL times in a matter of 10 minutes. What a moron!
Vaso Azzurro was just wonderful. 4 of us went before a performance nearby.
We all had salads with greens, avocado, gorgonzola and walnuts. Yum! and portions enough for two to share. Then two of us shared that day's special pasta, which was blackened salmon over fettuccine with sundried tomatoes and alfredo sauce. It was amazing. They charged $1.50 for sharing and effectively gave us two full portions. Our friends each tried the seasonal stuffed ravioli which they also enjoyed very much. The service couldn't have been better. We all said we'd go back in a minute.
My wife and I had enjoyed our fourth dinner over the past four months at Vasa Azzurro on Oct. 2, and we have enjoyed each one. The food, service, and ambience have been consistently excellent, and we enjoyed the singing by the maitre d during our most recent visit, which added to the romantic atmosphere of the restaurant. Their lasagna is one of the best I have had in the US and in Italy. The next time we want Italian food, we will return to Vaso Azzurro.
We enjoyed our visit to this very good Italian restaurant in midscale Mountain View. The wines by the glass were well-selected and the fish special (grilled Barramundi) was very nice and flavorful. Our vegetarian pasta was fresh and very palatable. We'd definitely stop by here again for Italian dining.
First time and had a good meal went with another couple. We all had different dishes they were all very good. There were entertainers there too and the owner joined in and sang. He was very personable went around the the tables and talked to everyone asking how dinner was and made recommendations for dessert!
The food here is always good though not exceptional. Be aware that indoors the noise level is very high, which, for millennials is seemingly no problem, but for us older folks presents a bit of a hearing challenge. Excellent jazz musicians were playing this Saturday night.
On my Open Table reservation, made a week or so before our actual date, I specifically requested an outdoor table because it is much quieter outside and the weather was nice and warm. However, when we arrived for a pre-theater early dinner about 6:00, the owner/host said there was no available outside seating despite almost every one of the outdoor tables being empty. He said they were all reserved and I had not reserved one. Clearly on my Open Table reservation when I went back to check it, the outdoor request was there. Very frustrating, and not endearing me to return.
