The owner and staff were very welcoming on our first visit. The stuffed peppers and linguine with meat sauce were outstanding. Try it, we'll be back!

Our group went here for dinner after hearing some very good reviews. We were not disappointed, the food was very good and quickly served! The restaurant was quiet and we were extremely well attended once seated. Will definitely eat here again the next time I am in town.

The pesto with spinach linguini was delicious and not overly oily. House salad dressing was delicious. Husband loved his gnocchi with secret sauce (I wasn't a fan, but then again, I didn't order it). The fritte dessert (fried donuts) was amazing, fresh and hot, but HUGE...enough for 4 or 5 people. Waiters were very nice. The only thing I didn't... More

Fabulous Italian dishes, done perfectly with a modern twist. Everything we've eaten at Vaccaro's was made with authentic and fresh ingredients, sourced both locally when possible and all the way from Italy when the dish calls for it. Love that about this place! We dine there often, and find the specials as well as the regular dishes always surprise us... More

wonderful service, EXCELLENT creative Italian food. Good prices. The meal was wonderful, starting with the tea and bread (homemade!) the pasta (also homemade), the salmon, salad, oh EVERYTHING was wonderful! Fully enjoyed our quiet time there. Great place for lunch with their specials too.

Anniversary Dinner at A Fine Dining Italian Restaurant. Made reservations for a Tuesday night in December. We were treated special all night with a well paced non-rushed meal. Complimentary desert was a nice touch! We both had the lasagna and it was excellent. The Bolognese sauce was superb. The ricotta cheese filling was creamy smooth and well complemented by the...

There wasn't anything significantly wrong with any of our dishes, it's just that for the price (entrees without sides) in the $27-$33 range, one expects more. Larger portions, better presentation (my salmon was served skin side up), nicer dining room, better service. We were also told it was slow due to a large party in another room. This was our... More

There are two parts to this restaurant one side is romantic with dimmed lights,white linen and cute chairs the other side is bright with white linen. We unfortunately got the bright side. We enjoyed the bruschetta board which was very tasty, we also had pizza and lasagna- all the food was good. The lasagna was different but very good. Our... More

We had a family dinner last night at Vaccaro's Trattoria and we loved it! The food, the service and the atmosphere were all excellent! I had the best Gnocchi with pomodoro sauce that I have ever tasted. It was better than my mother-in-law's and my grandmother's gnocchi , and they both were born in Italy! My wife and daughter had...

4 couples at Vaccaros on a Saturday night at 7 pm - there was an event/party on one half of the restaurant and only a handful of folks on the other; the waiter apologized early, saying service would be slow. It was, however we were in no hurry. Unfortunately, the food was underwhelming vs. the cost. We might give it... More
