 (Philadelphia)·Dined 3 days ago

The service was very slow though probably more the fault of the kitchen than the waiter. My friend had surf & turf. Both portions were small and neither was hot - just warm as if they had been sitting for awhile. I had red snapper which also was not very large and prepared with rosemary and lemon which overwhelmed the flavor. Broccoli rabb was the side but so bitter it was not edible. The restaurant was full and very loud to the point it was difficult to hear people speak. The cost was over $200 and not nearly worth the price.

Six of us had a lovely outdoor dinner at Vergina. They have outdoor tables in an alley on the side of the restaurant that are much quieter than those in front. The food was great , service was very attentive if somewhat frantic given the Valentine’s Day crowd. Overall a wonderful experience

For the number of staff working that night - service was horrible
It took over 20 minutes for us to get water/drinks
and over 20 min for a waiter to acknowledge us
then we did not see our waiter until we had to track him down for the check

We had been at Vergina's before, at that time the menu seemed more creative, with more vegetarian options, and less pricey that it is now. A new chef maybe? The server was friendly and the food was nicely presented.

We had a very nice experience. Our waiter, Jason, took excellent care of us! The octopus app was outstanding, and the entrees were all delicious. We stayed for dessert and had the tiramisu, chocolate cake and cotton candy! Looked like there was going to music in the bar, but we didn't stick around to hear.... Next time, for sure!

Food was just okay. The staff was attentive and changed one of the entrees because we didn’t like it. They did everything they could to make us happy. Customer service is half the experience. Ambiance is very nice, ut it’s very loud.

Have been going there for years. Food and menu selection is not as good as it used to be, but I would go back.

It was TERRIBLE!!! We had our reservations and got stuck behind a pole in the through way. Table next to us was seated 10 minutes after. They got service, water, and drinks and we had not yet been recognized. Asked a waiter if he was our server. No, but I’ll get you help. Nope! The maitre’ de then got us someone. He was great, but not our waiter. We were not in his area which meant he never was around. He was overworked but tried.
Our food. I had the Porcini mushroom pasta. It had no flavor and tasted metallic. My husbands linguini and clams was “good”. We will not be back. Too many other great choices.

Food and service were both very good but the atmosphere is a bit of a downer. No one smiles or chats. We were taken to our taxable without a word. Never said, "enjoy your dinner", NOTHING. No one that works there appears to be enjoying what they do. Sad.

The spaghetti and large meatball was a bad choice for our table of four. The noodles were on the hard side; the sauce was very thick and had the most unusual flavor. This was probably the first time I did not do a take home with the pasta. The other meals at our table were fine, but not the one dish you think would be impossible to screw up.

Is It Dishonesty or Incompetence?
You Decide.

The first visit, in December 2017, asked for the $20.00 bottle of wine advertised on the online menu.The waiter knew nothing about it, checked with the manager who went online to verify, (as if I would make that up), then sent it to our table.

The second visit, in January 2018, when presented with our bill, I was charged $44.00 for the wine I ordered, which was clearly listed for $32.00 on the online menu.
Again, the manager went online to verify my claim.
When presented with the corrected bill we paid and left.

It was only when I got home, and totaled up my bill, did I discover I had been charged an additional $8.00 for a vegetable we did not order, and I have the bill to prove it.

Clearly, there are aspects of both our visits to Vergina that we can commend and condemn. But they would be only our opinions, subject to confirmation or rebuttal.

Overcharging and misrepresenting items on your bill are facts, that leaves little open to interpretation, save, dishonesty or deceit.

If this is the perceived intent, and, as I'm told, the New Management is about to change the restaurants' name, might I suggest, "Ali Baba's &", (just kidding?).

To end it all:
This was a "Birthday" visit with great service by "Marcello", whom I'm certain,(by now), is known by every tourist and resident of Naples. Perhaps, a bronze statue of him holding a tray in the entryway would add to the recognition of his meritorious service which, he so richly deserves.

My observations:

Expect a mixed bag of experiences if you dine here "in season", from awesome to awful.

Good Luck!

Food was very good. 2 of us had the steak special. Personally I would prefer a thicker cut. It was tender and tasty. One person had lasagna and 4th had the 4 cheese pear pasta. Both said their food was excellent. Deserts, we had crewmen brûlée (average) and tiramisu) excellent. Yes, we would/will return.
