Vetri Cucina Ratings and Reviews
Hands down, the best dining experience I have EVER had!
Marc Vetri is an absolute mastermind and he is surrounded by a fantastic + charismatic team. The food was so impeccable it made me cry - never has food brought my palette on a journey like the night I dined at Vetri.
Thank you to the Vetri team for such a magical experience and quite honestly one I will never forget.
My girlfriend and I️ celebrated our second anniversary here. The food was incredible. The service was top notch. Monday BYOB was a huge plus. Mr Vetri himself was in the room when we were leaving and he got up to shake our hands, say thanks and say happy anniversary. We will be back for the next tasting as the November menu was great. Swiss char gnocchi and almond tortellini pasta yum! From the beginning to the end there is too much to say but it is worth every penny.
What a great experience! My husband and I wanted to celebrate our marriage, somewhere we've never been. We expanded our palettes in the best way possible. Personally, I would never try wild boar, goat , or sweetbreads, but I trusted that Vetri would not disappoint. Everything was delicious! My husband and I will be back next year!
The kitchen is very talented and frequently creative, but what you are presented with at Vetri is not a "tasting" menu. The sheer volume of food and the size of the portions completely overwhelmed us. We were done at the half-way point. Tasting menus (as opposed to "set" or "fixed price" versions) should feature just that -- a small taste of each item/dish, a sampling if you will. We've experienced true tasting menus that included as many as 40+ items yet we were able to finish the meal, not as happened here. In our experience, most tasting menus are in the 10-12 range with each item being a couple of bites ( tastes). So, if it's modern Italian cuisine and volume that you seek, Vetri is your place.
Almost a perfect dining experience. Vetri is a Philadelphia legend I finally had the chance to experience... and what an experience it was. From the minute we were greeted the front of house staff was amazing. They were extremely accommodating, and friendly. The somm was awesome! Great, easy to understand tasting notes with a number of different wines to try was exactly what we needed. The meal was tailored to our tastes and they did a stellar job providing us each with dishes that we would like. Standouts: proscuitto cotto, swiss chard gnudi, almond and truffle tortellini, pistachio dessert, guinea hen. Remarks: wild boar ragu was a bit over seasoned, balsamic macaron was a bit too vinegary. Amazing meal! Can not wait to go again.
We decided to go to Vetri fort our first wedding anniversary before we were even married. It didn't disappoint. We both left our meal entirely in the hands of the kitchen, and the meal had a beautiful flow. The price is steep, but we'll worth it for a special occasion.
The food, the service and the ambiance are exquisite. Other restaurants with tasting menus can dazzle you with inventiveness and presentation. And the same is true at Vetri, except that the number of different meals brought to the table far exceeded any other restaurant's. 5 different pastas (all very tasty), steak and goat, appetizers and munchies to start, and a vermouth concoction that was just right. And the service staff perfectly attentive, never intrusive but always there when needed. And the hostess matched wines with food effectively, and understood that sometimes a quarter glass was just right, so that you can have many tastes without intoxication. It was an anniversary dinner that was flawless.
Hands down the best meal I've ever had in my life. My wife and I were celebrating my retirement, and I cannot think of any better way to celebrate. I'm not typically one to spend so much on a meal, because past experiences were not worth the money. This, on the other hand, was worth every cent. We plan to celebrate all future occasions here.
The lunch experience lives up to the expectations set by a Vertri Cucina dinner. The portions over 4 courses make for an exquisitely satisfying meal. The almond tortellini is still the best thing ever, anywhere. The wine parings were very well executed.
This was among the finest meals we've ever had. Sublime food via the incredible tasting menu as well as perfect wine pairings for each course and often two per course. We've been here before and this meal was even more incredible than we remember our prior ones. Everything about Vetri is truly perfect. It is a special place. Be warned though, this perfection comes with an equally incredible price tag. We feel guilty spending this much on a dinner for two but if you seek a "once in a lifetime culinary experience", Vetri is unparalleled!
