Absolutely love this restaurant!! Very clean and the staff and owners are very very nice!!! Would definitely recommend this restaurant!!
Our entrees were delicious, I LOVE the Timbalo! My husband had the mussels and the Anglioti and really enjoyed both. Bread options are definately a 10!
The appetizer “special” which was touted as a fried ravioli was not good. The texture of the wrapping was not a fried pasta, but more of a crispy wonton like wrapper. Several of them were not filled with the ricotta mixture, there was less than a tablespoon in several. We shared this with our server, but she did not seem concerned. Overall, she was slow and not very engaging or observant. My husband only took a few sips of his cocktail and he didn’t like it, but didn’t want to mention it. She didn’t question that he only had a few sips. Typically, this is an opportunity to engage with the customer.
Overall, we enjoy the bread and pasta options and definately would return!
Excellent food matched by excellent service (Thank you, Rita). The grilled octopus appetizer was tender with a great smokey grill flavor. We really enjoyed the veal contadina, the veal principessa (medallions with crab, asparagus, in a cream sauce), and the Vincenza Pizza. And the butterflied pork chop specialty of the house was a huge hit with one of our foodies--good for two additional meals! (portion sized were all very generous.)
OUTSTANDING! Exceeded my expectations tenfold! This is not your average Italian dinner. Everything was super fresh, and very creative. Perfect portion sizes and the service was fantastic. I don’t like going out for Italian but can’t wait until we go back to V&M! Wow!!
This was our second visit and the food and presentation was perfect again. The service was very attentive and upbeat. A noisy but fun place. We look forward to our next visit!

VM never disappoints! The food is amazing and the staff is so friendly!
The food and presentation were great! Staff was friendly and helpful.
The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was the noise level. The space just lends itself to being loud.
My husband and I went out for dinner and we were both pleased with our meals. He ordered a special and I a menu item. Meatball appetizer was very good and perfect for sharing. Our drinks were delicious, I had an espresso martini. Entrees were delicious, home made pasta noodles. Great flavors.
Outstanding food, atmosphere and service. To me, the marinara sauce is intoxicating. I wish they sold it!!
Service was much better from the previous week. Martinis were not very good, one taste like cough syrup and another had to much alcohol. Food was cold. First time not having an all around good experience. We miss Eric.
Thanks for dealing with our rowdy group. Mark’s the best!
Potentially the best meal I've had in Delaware, beating out the former champ, Nora Lee's in New Castle. Wasn't particularly planning on returning to VM Bistro but the food changed my mind. Have only been to VM Bistro once and many times to Nora Lee's. Nora Lee's lacks consistency in the kitchen and the service is uneven. Time will tell about VM Bistro.
The food was absolutely amazing. I would highly recommend!!
Best Italian restaurant around. The pasta ismade in house, the portions are generous, and the food is delicious. Can't say enough about it so I won't say anymore.
Love this restaurant so much! Great food, wonderful staff and always a pleasure.
Great food, service and atmosphere!
Remains too pricey. We may come back more often if the prices were moderated. Food is delicious, but there is delicious food in less expensive restaurants in this area.
Loved our whole experience! Very friendly and amazing food!! Also very very clean. Well worth the drive. Made reservation to go back that same night. Owners are very friendly and cater to all your needs!! Loved it!!!
We ALWAYS have the best meal and service at V&M! All the staff are friendly and attentive, and the Carrieri-Russo family make you feel like part of their family. It is a special restaurant.
Fantastic service, and every meal is delicious!!
Italian food. The gnocchi is delicious.. The veal chop is amazing. Homemade bread, garlic rolls. Outstanding desserts!!
Our first time visiting this restaurant and we will certainly be returning. The food was good and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.
This place was outstanding to say the least!! Food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Staff was incredibly attentive to my wife and I. I cant wait to go back.
We liked our meal and restaurant in general. Thought the food was pretty good but not exceptional. However, for the prices, the food should have been exceptional and the restaurant more "experiential." We were unpleasantly surprised about the high prices for an Italian restaurant on Marsh Road. We did have a coupon that brought the bill down to a reasonable level. However, without that coupon, we would have felt ripped off. Will only go again with a discount coupon - which is a shame since the restaurant has promise. It was half filled on a Friday night and I can only think that was because of the prices.
Food is excellent - a nice setting - friendly attentive knowledgeable service. A well thought out menu.well made cocktails - live music- everything to make an enjoyable dining experience
Always enjoy the service and Ladies Night. Hostess and servers are professional by greeting you with a warm welcome and smile. The cooks preparations and presentations are better than most high price restaurants. I recommend this place only if you want dinner. No lunch available. Get there at 4pm for Happy Hour. 😆
This place is amazing. You must try it for yourself!
Was outstanding ! Would recommend to anyone I know . Ken our server was great . Vince came buy and checked on our evening of food and wine . Friendly , prompt service ! Food was great !
Server forgot birthday candle. Otherwise, we love this restaurant!
The lemoncello martini and the bone in veal parm are outstanding. Everything else is just good. The waiter forgot that I gave him a $40 gift card when he brought me the bill. I also asked for my pasta Aglio oloi and the waiter didn't know what I was talking about. It turns out they gave me oil & butter pasta instead of garlic and oil pasta. Kind of strange for an Italian restaurant!
Our meals were delicious (pasta puttanesca and ravioli), service was competent and efficient, the wine was reasonably priced and overall it was a very enjoyable evening.
Food was excellent - it was our first visit and will definitely be back to eat here. plus side was we went on Tuesday night not even realizing entrees were 1/2 off :) all of the staff was super attentive as well - do not find that these days at many restaurants.
Brandywine Valley Restaurant Week enticed us here. Superb 3-course dinner. Mark was great with precise timing. Marvelous creations on the regular menu as well.
We are never disappointed with V&M. The food is creative, fresh and made with love! The service is always excellent. Even the bar is fun - just wish it was bigger. We never mind paying a little extra for fantastic food, friendly service and a nice, comfortable atmosphere. V&M is a little neighborhood gem!
We make the 45 mile trip to V&M Bistro at least once a month, and have never regretted making the trip. Their food is always outstanding. This particular trip was during Brandywine Valley Restaurant Week, and we were not disappointed with the selection that was available on their prefix menu. There were four of us, and we all had different dishes, all of which were excellent, at a very reasonable price. Everyone we have taken to this establishment have returned on their own.
The food is kind of pricey but the portions are large. Definitely worth it.
Each visit exceeds previous experience.
Friendly place with nice atmosphere and good waitstaff. Bread is kind of blah and a bit too pricey.
While, we have dined here on numerous occasions with excellent service, THIS EVENING, the service was the worst we have ever experienced in a restaurant of this caliber. We waited approximately 45 minutes for bread to be placed on the table, all the while we watched salads and meals served to the other diners seated after us receive their orders.
Our dinner, a Caesar Salad with Chicken and an evening special pasta dish took 45 minutes after we ordered to be placed on the table. We should have walked out, but did not!!!!!
Sadly, we will not dine here again!!!!
