Service and Food was great, however the parking validation process is a headache. Other than that overall I will return again in the future.

Everything was delicious. Best chicken Parm! Seating on the “couch” side was not good, as soon as you sat down you sank into the cushions. So we moved to the other side of the table to sit on the regular chairs.

Mr risque was great!! He made sure being visitors to the area that we knew about the choices at the restaurant and around town. The food was sooo amazing. Very authentic Italian with a twist. As a chef myself I was very pleased with the food coming from this chic little bar/pizzeria/restaurant.

The service was outstanding. Our server was extremely helpful both navigating the menu and picking a wine. Considering the fact that the place doubles as a sports bar, the food was great. Would definitely come back

Although the food was authentic italian, phenomenal, the ambiance was very bad. There was a client by the bar who was drunk and was very loud and cursing and screaming all the time and the bartender and employees screamed and cursed along with him and the manager did not do anything about it until and called him and said it was not acceptable. They slowed down for a couple of minutes and then it came back to the same situation. I complemented the chef but I am not going back to eat at VB3

We had two different pastas which were both bad - one was way too oily with truffles and the other vodka sauce was tasteless. The only good thing was the meatballs. The service was subpar as they delivered our salad when they delivered our patas. We returned the salad as we didn't want to eat it with our pasta. The server never came over to apologize for the error. The music is loud, so unless you are going for a bar scene this place is not good for dinner ambiance. I would go here for a drink and meatballs. The meatballs are the reason they even got even a one star, otherwise one of the worst dinner experiences we have had in a long time.

More of a bar scene than a sit down restaurant. Good food, good value, but won't go back unless I'm looking for a happy hour

We were looking for a chill, half way decent and affordable Italian restaurant and came across VB3. Our waiter was very attentive but he should have known their wines better. The food was edible but that is about it. Barely Italian, they should just say that they serve various forms of noodles with jar-tomato sauce on top. I will not return unless I just want a drink at their faux-swanky bar.

We didn't find it special. The space is nicely done and the gentleman and the server who received us were nice. The food is ok and the service can use some work

Extremely slow for lunch. Kitchen seemed disorganized. Took over an hour to serve a table of 4 sandwiches. Wouldn't recommend for a "quick" lunch spot.

Excellent service. Potato gratin was amazing (side dish to the steak), Steak was overcooked. Ribs were great. They let us order mozzarella sticks which weren't on the dinner menu, that gave them extra kudos from us.
