It was a last minute decision to come here and we were so glad we did! It was not busy for a Saturday evening and we were greeted and taken care of by a very attentive waitress. Our meals were superb - veal and chicken - and attractively presented. Loved the taste of their tomato sauce. Plenty of leftovers too.... More

Went there following good reviews on Tripadvisor. Average service. The food didn't taste fresh. Maybe it was the spice they used, not sure... Sorry to say it , but I wouldn't visit again. Like I said in one of my previous reviews I don't like to write bad ones, but I don't really get the hype, though I know it's... More

Always a great atmosphere, food is well-prepared and delicious. Specialty drinks/martinis are great! Menu is somewhat limited to specialty type dinners. Not your "grab a high end burger" place.

Attended a friend's birthday party here on Saturday, June 11th in the function room. The food was fantastic with a lot of variety, although the cheese and crackers platter was quite small. There were just two downsides: * The bartender didn't stay at the bar and instead kept leaving to go hang out in the kitchen. At one point, a... More

We came to Vasi's for an Easter meal in late March. We were seated right away, based on our reservation. The staff was welcoming and friendly. Drinks ordered included Mangotini, Lemon Drop Martini, and Pepsi. Our entrees included Italian Paella (served with house salad and gorgonzola vinaigrette dressing), Leg of Lamb (with mashed potatoes and house vegetables), and New York... More

Wonderful food! Served with beautiful presentation and delicious. Nice green salad is served with the entrees. The linguine and clams was so flavorful and a full dozen little necks! The escarole and bean appetizer with the plum tomatoes & long hot peppers with a chunk of grilled bread on the side is a recipe I've been trying to replicate.. so... More

I like the restaurant- been there two or three times. Usually, the food and service are very good but this last visit, everything just seemed to be off. Perhaps it may have something to do with a young and ill-trained wait staff. I don't know about you, but when there are 4 people dining, the plates should not be taken... More

My family hosted a bereavement luncheon at Vasi's in their private banquet area on Dec. 4. It worked very well. The private room was perfect for our event, Lauren (event planner) was a pleasure to work with, the food was quite good, and the staff was very attentive. The room was set up exactly the way we needed also. And... More
