We Loved Vico. The ambiance was lovely and the staff was professional yet friendly. Our drinks were made using the best liquors without us requesting them. One of our group spilled her martini due to it being very full. The waitress came right over with multiple cloth napkins and helped my friend tidy up. She then laid down a fresh cloth napkin over the stain on the tablecloth caused by the spilled drink and brought a fresh martini for my friend (no charge). We never felt rushed to order appitizers or dinner. The menu changes daily serving whatever is fresh that day. We all loved our salads as well as our entrees. We traveled over an hour to get to Vico and would do it again in a heartbeat.

Vico is a charming restaurant in Hudson, NY, on the every-year-new-surprises Warren Street. It is quiet, the decor is comfortable, with sophistication. The food, for each if the 4 of us, was nicely presented and delicious - as well as filling. We will certainly visit again.

We were celebrating our anniversary and our daughter called the restaurant and mentioned the special occasion. The manager said that it would be noted. She later asked us if the occasion was mentioned and was upset that they disregarded her request.
My food was good; but my husband was disappointed with his choice.

This was our second visit to Vico and found it far better than the first. The service was among the best we have ever had at any restaurant. The appetizers were outstanding. Two of the three meals were rated as very good, mine was just average. Overall we were quite pleased and the best compliment can give is that we will return.

This was my first time here and certainly not the last. It was late on a Thursday and I feel like the restaurant treated me like I owned it. A lovely waitress took care of offering us the best service. The food was lovingly home made tasting and FANTASTIC, the handmade paradelle was excellent and I was so busy eating it that I have no idea what anyone else got but everyone said it was great. Nice wines, nice place, at the very end but well worth it! Reasonable prices, nice portions, great service. I highly recommend if you want great food in a warm and cozy place with attentive staff.

LOVE. Chef Ganem really puts his heart into every dish. The pasta sauces are seasoned just right and the steak was amazing. The wait staff were so kind and we were never without water, wine or bread. I wasn’t sure that I had room for dessert but I saw someone order the tiramisu and I had to have it. Delicious! Not super sweet and just the right portion size. Overall a great experience! Hudson’s best kept secret!!

I've visited Vico many times and it never disappoints! My favorite dish is the pappardelle al telefono, but everything is good here. I've held events at Vico and the staff worked hard to make them a success. The home made pasta is always delectable, and local greens make the salads perfect for a summer day.

So glad I came across this little italian restaurant located in Hudson. I'm always going to the same italian restaurants so I wanted to try something new and i'm so happy I did. I got the homemade cheese ravioli and my boyfriend got the chicken parm(sooo much food). A bottle of cab was very reasonably priced, I recommend getting a bottle, over a few glasses, it will defintiely save you some $. For the quality of the food and the price I think this is a perfect spot for date night, and any fun life celebrations. Thanks!

Not good and won’t return. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Then waited. And waited. We asked twice if the server could stop by. Nothing. Finally, we got up to grab someone, and after 25 minutes an apologetic server came over. We got his recommendations and placed our order. The bread was soggy. Salad was ok. The pasta recommended by the server had salmon cubes that were past their prime (which I didn’t eat). The “fabulous” dessert was only passable — didn’t even finish it. Not a good meal at all.

We booked a reservation here because Vico Ristorante in Manhattan is our favorite Italian restaurant. Suffice it to say, these two restaurants couldn't be different. While the ambiance here was satisfactory though somewhat austere, the food quality left so much to be desired. I consider myself to be an authority on chicken milanese, so of course I ordered it here (at the NYC restaurant it is my favorite). The serving was huge, and looked delicious. But while the dish presented very nicely, it was practically inedible. The chicken was tough, like shoe leather, and I only ate about one third of the serving. Extremely disappointing. Another issue exists in this and many other Italian restaurants. Though restaurants claim to be aware of and sensitive to those diners with food allergies, the majority includes garlic in many, if not all, dishes and sauces. Garlic allergies are real, and restaurants should recognize that. After much discussion, the Vico chef found a way to prepare one garlic-free dish for my wife. Unfortunately, that is often the case and does take away from the dining experience.

Have been before which is why we chose this time and we were very disappointed. Our waitress couldn't seem to get our order right. She brought the one order and then had to replace. While they comped us for the dish, it was not okay. I'd like not to base my review on this dinner alone, because we've enjoyed dinners here in the past - I hope this was an anomaly

I thought service was slow and at least 2 of the portions were small - 2 sea scallops, NOT giant, for $15.00 is excessive. My “molten” chocolate thing was NOT molten, it was dry. Generally, I was underwhelmed for the orice.

Excellent all around. I say one of the top restaurants in Hudson and not as known......which is great! Both owners are on site and Elizabeth takes care of you the moment you walk thru the door. Willing to adjust any dish to specail diets and they do it with a smile. Although I do not eat lamb I have been repeatedly told it is the best ever....the pasta and fish are consistently done to perfection and creative.

We were celebrating mother’s day and two birthdays which I indicated in my reservation on open table. Nothing said or made mention to it. A candle would have been nice in one of the 4 desserts or some acknowledgement at least.

There was a table not far from us where the daughter in law was arguing and berating her mother in law for a half hour and then stomped out. Not being very busy that day, which was odd because it was mother’s day, and only 1 other table, it was hard to overlook and def put a damper. Maybe putting music louder etc, do something, but owner and staff oblivious.

Also, find it odd and disappointing, that we were a table of 5 in the middle of dining room and the owner only cared about and doted on a table of two that was right next to us. He must have passed by at least 5/6 times without even a concern of how everything was or even a welcoming hello. We haven’t been there in awhile and now remember why. Our waitress was sweet but doesn’t carry the whole experience. And def on the expensive side for what you get. We don’t mind paying when it’s worth it and we do quite often at other very good restaurants in Hudson.
