If you love Italian food, try Vicolo Ristorante & Bar in Brooklyn, New York. Its cozy, casual atmosphere is perfect for those who just want to stop in for a great meal without a formal production. The meatball mozzarella sticks off the appetizer menu are worth a trip to Vicolo Ristorante & Bar all by themselves.

You�ll also love the vicolo pizzas, though you can�t go wrong with any of the specialty pies here. The white clam pizza is also a standout. Save room for dessert too, because Vicolo Ristorante & Bar has a hearty menu of Italian delicacies like tiramisu, cannoli, profiteroles and coppa spagnola.

A comfortable Italian restaraunt in Bay Ridge. Great for groups. Warm service. Good menu. Lots of fun.

Vicolo is not your usual Brooklyn Italian restaurant - the service, menu, and food preparation are definitely on a higher level. Ingredients are authentic, fresh, and high quality. The spaghetti al tartufo, prepared tableside with truffles and cream and tossed in a hollowed-out wheel of cheese, is a pleasure both to watch and to eat. Excellent desserts, too - the torta della nonna is a favorite. Bring your appetite - portions are generous. Can be crowded on weekend evenings (it's a popular party place, and rightly so), but lunchtime is beautifully quiet.

Not a stranger to this place. Food and service always very good. Squid ink pasta is my favorite here.
Try it, you'll like it!

We have been to Vicolo a few times and it is just delicious. The friendly staff, the valet parking, the great food why go anywhere else in bay ridge. Our waiter Franco was the most friendly waiter we ever had anywhere!!
We will continue to return every time we are in area

My husband and I eat here at least 2 times a month. I love the food. There is much attention to fine ingredients. It is our favorite restaurant in Bay Ridge. The specials are creative and change all the time so we are always surprised.

We've been here before and everything is always fantastic. The food is better than I remember last time. The service is great. I really like this restaurant. My only complaint is that there was a huge table holding a "chapter" meeting and they were clinging on their glasses and yelling at each other to get their attention. They were speaking extremely loud, more than just the noise of a big group of people, and that basically ruined our dining experience. Apparently they are monthly avoid the 1st Tuesday of every month and you should have a great time!

The first time I ate there it was with a group and there was a lack of service. Second time we went on a Friday night and was told they didn't expect to be that busy so they were shorthanded staff wise. I tried again yesterday which was a Saturday night. They had a group that was leaving so busy cleaning up and we sat there 15 minutes before someone finally came to ask if we want a drink. We had enough and walked out. It's a shame because their food is really delicious but when there's bad service or lack of it ruins everything.

From our first step into the restaurant the service was wonderful. Our meal was delicious and we will definitely return to this neighborhood gem.

We had a party of 7 this night in particular and some of the entrees presented were good.. Others had to be brought back to the kitchen. The pasta they toss with the wheel couldn't be done tableside on this night either... Not good... I really thought I found a neighborhood gem but it's becoming a bit of a see saw ride here and I don't go for that.... 1 more chance in the future to right the ship!

The management were very hands on and appeared organized. Limited menu due to Easter. Stuffed artichoke was good, cannoli was excellent, Dinner portions were very small and the l3 tablespoons of mash potatoes were too little and tasted like a dry mix. The chicken was dry and very thinly cut. The lamb was not enjoyed either. The pasta was good and I would try this restaurant since I met someone I know there and he said he has been there a number of times and always enjoys the food, so I would try it for a late lunch and only recommend it if my experience was better. I would not eat there on a holiday again. It just seems like they really skimped on the main course in the cut and quality of lamb/chicken,

We have been to Viclo's several times and have never been disappointed. For appetizer try the grilled Spanish octopus. Done just right not rubbery or chewy, just the right amount of bite. Also the spaghetti that in made with truffles and then swirled in a parmesan wheel to develop a creamy sauce , excellent. The servers are very attentive to your every need and friendly. Highly recommended.

Everytime we come it has become a slot machine of food. Meaning you might get a winning meal or a disappointing one.. I bragged about this place to friends and even on here after my 1st visit... I brought a party of 7 or 8 last time and certain items had to be sent back to the kitchen. On this particular night they didn't even use the cheese wheel that they prepare tableside for their fettuccine... Sorry I need to step back from here till I see solid reviews. It's a bit sad. I really thought I was going to make this my go to spot for italian in bay ridge...

It is so nice to experience a restaurant where you can actually taste the effort and pride that the owners and chef have in their establishment.

The atmosphere was very nice at Vicolo. The food was also good. We were a little disppointed in the limited valentines day menu but we were happy with what we chose off of the menu. The man greeting us at the door was a little hovering. Every couple of minutes he would come over to the table and make comments like "oh is it not good" all bc I still had some on my plate. We felt a little rushed because he kept coming over. Our waiter was very nice and supplied great service. We would dine at Vicolo again but not on a holiday.

Found Vicolo after looking for a place central to all our friends. The food was great, as was the service. They let us sit and enjoy dinner and drinks for nearly four hours! The valet service was particularly convenient with snow and ice on the ground.

The service was Ok, the food was pretty tasty, but I got a pasta special for $23 and it had hardly any pasta in it, and the shrimps were butterflied, they were small-sized at best. I expected huge shrimp and more fettucine for that price. That entree and one pizza took a long time to eat. It also took a long time to get my change.

The food was excellent, pork chop dish was cooked to prefection and very tasty. Two in our party had fish and were also very satisified. I would say the restaurant may have the best Italian food in Bay Ridge, however the prices are a little too high for a Brooklyn neighborhood. I can't see this restaurant becoming a go to place for the area with there current price list.
