Fabulous attention to detail which creates a great dining experience. The food is always perfect with innovative touches. And, the service is just awesome. A few delicious notes included the calamari and artichoke galette, the whole red snapper, tuna crudo, fig ravioli. The wine pairing was also great. I especially enjoyed the Ignaz Niedrist, Sauvignon Blanc from Alto Adige and Moscato d'Asti "Canelli" from Piedmont! It's always special at Vetri Cucina. Bravo.

Superb restaurant in every way. They are sensitive to your likes and dislikes and essentially give you at least a taste of your preferences. The service is very attentive but not overbearing. The staff makes you feel special. And the food, especially the pastas, is as good as you will find anywhere, including Italy. We will be back agan and again.

I heard great things about Vertri Cucina while dining at Pizzaria Vetri in DC. The tasting menu was delightful and the service impeccable. This is definitely a special occasion type of experience - come very hungry and leave blissful!

Very Small place but well appointed. The service is excellent and 5 stars for sure. The food is very very good but in my opinion just didn’t match the flawless service. It’s a $165 prifix menu. For a true 5 Star food experience places like Marea in NYC still a cut above. But if you haven’t been certainly worth a try!

A fabulous meal! The service was outstanding from the moment we set foot into the restaurant until we left. The staff knew every detail of what we liked or didn’t like before we even sat down, then double checked with us throughout dinner. They were always close by, took the time to converse, and made adjustments to our choices as necessary. Loved having tastes of the highest quality continually brought to the table. We had no room left for food by the time we were done! Terrific experience and made for a very special celebration. Thank you, Vetri Cucina!

We dined for Friday lunch which is the only day they are open for lunch. It’s a four course meal but seems like even more as they provide a number of extra complimentary items. There were about five choices in each category and everything our party of three ordered was delicious especially the Dover Sole. It’s a wonderful value at less than half the cost of dinner. Can’t wait to return.

They ran late to seat us, they did not come to the table until 10:30, the main course was not served until 12:00, took desert home..they apologized but still charged full amount, the food did not make up for the poor experience, feel ripped off..I still tipped but think they think they are more special then they are..there are better places in Philadelphia if you want to spend 200 dollars per person..

Exceptional on many counts but be prepared to spend $$. More food than we could eat so we took some home...next day, YUM!! We found the wine list comparable to any higher end restaurant. Our wine stewardess was very helpful and recommended a great wine under $100 at our request. Next time we will do the wine pairings. LOVED IT!!

I have never experienced anything like this. It’s leagues above anywhere that I have dined and I’ve dined at at many wonderful restaurants including Michelin rated ones. Service:
Everything about our experience yesterday was exceptional starting with the host, server, manager, busser and Chef Vetri himself. We were made to feel special and we did. This is how they treat everyone.
Ambiance:
Beautiful, warm, inviting. The attention to detail was wonderful. The fresh flowers in the bathroom and individual towels were lovely. The candlelit table, the comfortable seating, the decor was beautiful and inviting.
Food:
The best I have ever eaten, portioned perfectly and prepared perfectly. Italian taken to a whole new level. Housemade everything, simple, different flavors and textures. There are several courses, you do not leave hungry and the fullness you feel is not the tired uncomfortable feeling but a satisfied fullness. Every single thing we ate was exceptional, there was not one thing that was even mediocre.
Price:
It’s pricey and probably not a price point that the average diner can afford to pay to go regularly. It’s a special occasion place. If you can splurge, this is the place you must go. It is definitely worth the money because it’s an experience that you will not get anywhere else. If you think of it as an experience and not just dinner you will be very pleased and understand it’s money well spent.

We were a little disappointed as the food was good but nothing was outstanding. The wines were good but unbelievably overpriced. The service was great. But for the price I would not do it again!

All of the waitstaff was attentive without being intrusive and they paid attention to our very few special requests. The evening was really perfection.
