 (Atlanta)·Dined on June 25, 2016

We were a party of six persons. Upon arrival we were not sure if we booked the right restaurant It seemed to be a neighborhood bar with a simple restaurant. Wine and beer only. Our waiter was not only professional but such a great personality! The menu was excellent. Each appetizer was a tease of what was to come. Our main dishes were so fresh and wonderfully prepared. I ordered the Gnocchi with sausage and I savored every bite. Make sure to leave room for desert. Their Tiramisou was the best! I highly recommend dining at Vicoletto - such a treat!

Wow I've never been to an Italian restaurant this bad. The food portion was very small and the quality was super low. We asked for straws and the server basically said we don't have straws. So our friend walked outside and brought us some straws to drink our ice tea. Horrible horrible service and food. Do not go!!!

Booked on Open Table, when looking for an Italian place, monthly get together with friends.

We used to go to No Beach a lot in our younger days but going back felt like coming home. That was in particular because the host/owner was so welcoming and helped us with the menu, and made us all feel special.

Vicoletto needs more servers. One person was waiting on all tables. Several items were already out on the menu and it was only 7 pm. We had to ask for drinks after they took our order...they never asked if we wanted something to drink.

There was another Party and I'm usually very patient. Our seating was 8 and we didn't get out until close to 10pm. The waiter just never checked on us, had he offer another drink or bread I would be totally cool. He just didn't acknowledge us or apologized for the wait. There wasn't a wait unlike other places in north beach and this explains it. Check out the Yelp reviews! 3- 3.5 max

We picked this restaurant based on Yelp reviews for dinner before attending Beach Blanket Babylon down the street. We were not disappointed! The restaurant is small and intimate which is what we were looking for vs. some of the louder spots in North Beach. The food we ordered was excellent. We shared a couple of plates (salad, pasta, and fish) and left the restaurant happy campers.

Always reliable, always good service. Their menu isn't the longest but every dish has its own appeal; I get the sense I could order anything and leave happy. It's affordable enough to do on a regular basis but swanky enough to qualify as a special night out--a useful restaurant for many occasions.

Went to Vicoletto last week with a group of friends and all of us came away very satisfied with our experience. Everything from the service (very attentive and thorough) to the food (fresh, delicious, original yet authentic menu) was excellent.
I was concerned because of its proximity to Columbus it would be touristy but it actually felt more like an intimate neighborhood hangout than a tourist destination.
Appreciated the high quality food and service at very reasonable prices. You will not be dissatisfied here.

We did an OpenTable search for good Gluten-Free restaurants in San Francisco because we have a son with Celiac Disease and we were in Town visiting for Spring Break and we're looking for something a little better than Chipolte. Vicoletto came up at the top of our search, so we thought we'd give it a try. Basically, the options given were a couple of Gluten-Free pastas with options of different toppings. Not really catering to the specific clientele. Another couple was there, with the same requirement and they would up leaving.

That said, for a regular dish, my girlfriend had the Gnocchi and I had the lobster ravioli, both of which were quite good. The flavors were complex and the pastas were tasty and perfectly done.

Vicoletto has become my favorite moderate Italian refuge in North Beach. It has the advantage that one can secure a table without waiting months in advance. The service is always attentive, the setting is charming, and the presentation straightforward. Good wine and beer options round it out. The headliner will always be the pasta, which I resent only ever so mildly because it has ruined me for all the lesser pasta hawkers on Columbus Street. An uncomplicated place for an enjoyable date.

When I made the reservation for our first anniversary. I asked for a quiet table. They put us in the back of the place away from the street and cheered us with a complimentary glass of Prosecco. I'm sort of a gnocchi snob having grown up in an Italian family and their homemade sautéed gnocchi with calabrese sausage and broccoli rabe was superb. The veal chop was excellent too. Our waiter helped make it a special night. The place was full by the time we left for Beach Blanket Babylon so if you want quiet romance go early.

It was the last night of a trade show and a group of 10 wanted a quieter venue for a good meal and a relaxed atmosphere. Vicoletto fit the bill on all marks. Food was fantastic and the wine was excellent. My only negative critique was that the service was a little slow. It was a busy night so understandable.

This was my second time here with the visits spaced 4 years apart. The food remains outstanding. We shared the burrata, squid ink pasta and pan seared fish (sea bass?). All were delicious. The burrata is a must have as it is fresh, flavorful and with excellent texture.

Vicoletto has a menu with enough choices for everyone to find something but not so many as to be ridiculous. Portions were a good size and tasted excellent. The wine list is similar to menu in number of choices. Both food and wine were reasonably priced for the area. They also offer a $39 fixed price menu that gets you app/salad, entree, and desert. Not a large restaurant so I would recommend a reservation.

Vicoletto offers 3 courses for $39 and includes everything on the menu! Gluten-free pasta can be prepared with any pasta sauce - the braised lamb dish was amazing. The Panna Cotta was the most delicious dessert I have ever had.

A bit loud, but otherwise a great experience.

Much enjoyed the experience. Not a busy night, so service was attentive, although the waiter should learn how to pour wine discreetly. It's not water.
The food was all very good. Highly recommend the duck salad starter with tender, defatted duck and just the right amount of crispy bacon over greens topped with a fried egg. I had the homemade pappardelle with lamb ragu a main. Again the lamb was very tender and didn't overpower the delicate pasta ribbons.
The tiramisu was a light rendition without a noticeable alcohol taste. Very nice.
Beats me why Sotto Mare next store was packed while Vicoletto with it's refined cuisine was relatively empty. Will definitely go here again!

Not the spot for a romantic dinner in North Beach. Spartan setting; bright lighting and no music for the first hour we were there; large, loud groups and a rattle-y room. Beet salad was lovely. Whole seabass was delicious, but the presentation -- propped upright with toothpicks as if still swimming -- was not.

When a restaurant is supposed to put its best foot forward to get people to come back again, you'd think that Vicoletto would have done a better job, but they fell far short of expectations. My Mom ordered the lobster ravioli. Presentation was fine, but one could barely taste the lobster in the ravioli pasta. I ordered their pork chop medium rare, and it came out overcooked and tough. The only saving grace about our meal was the desserts. The panna cotta and tiramisu were both good, but that did not make up for the overall quality of the meal. We won't be back, unfortunately. There are too many other good restaurants to try and go to.

For the SECOND time, I made a reservation at Vicoletto and was told the table wasn't ready REPEATEDLY for over an hour past reservation time. Several other groups standing outside the door experienced the same issue. I wish Vicoletto would only accept reservations for the actual number of customers they are able to serve.

Had a great meal - appetizer, entree, dessert - all tasty and big portions, but it took a _really_ long time. 3 hours from start to finish and we were not the lingering type of group. This is not the place for kids who have specific bedtimes, but if you're a couple looking for a good meal and plenty of time to enjoy your time out, I'd recommend it!
