Stopped in for a "quick" lunch. I am the ONLY customer in the place and it took almost 5 minutes for the bartender/server to bring me water and take my drink order. When he finally comes back to bring me my drink he takes my order. Easy right? Grilled Ceasar Wrap. Comes with two sides. I order fries and a... More

Excellent food, great crowd, and huge portions. It delivers to the surrounding hotels, which is a bonus, and very quickly I might add.

My friend and I planned her birthday brunch here earlier this year. We had seen how fun it supposedly was on Instagram so we decided we would give it a shot. We rented a sprinter and everything because we were all coming from NY. We arrive and we are charged a $20.00 entrance fee. I am not cheap and I... More

When we were first moving to the east coast and staying in hotels we grew tired of high end fancy places to eat. Sometimes you just want a comfortable place with good food and down to earth people so we started looking around. That's how we found VB3. Great friendly staff, good food great bartenders. A shout out to Patrick,... More

We were staying at a hotel nearby and was looking for a bite to eat and came across VB3. Nice atmosphere , fantastic pizza and great service. I had the proscutto da parm personal pizza . It had roasted red peppers , lots of proscutto and topped with fresh arugala. One of the best pizzas I ever had.

First time in the area. Looking for a pizza take out that stayed open later and VB3 was the one! Pizza was worth the wait. Plus they had one of favorite beers on tap, Allegash White! So it made the wait even better!

The meatball sandwich and Italian cold sub were quickly prepared. The meatball must have been pretty good because the kids gobbled it up before I could have any. (Do you think I should start feeding them more than once a day . . . ?) The Italian sub was very nice with just the right amount of oil and vinegar... More

Visiting after 2 years I have to say that their food has improved significantly! The mozzarella and tomato salad was delicious and fresh. Their pizza is also delicious. We got the pepperoni pizza and the sauce and bread was very fresh. We also ordered the Coletti burger and is was very tasty. The beef was juicy and delicious!

Chef Michael Colletti began his culinary journey at a young age growing up watching his grandparents and father, who migrated from Sicily, preparing the family recipes with home grown ingredients such as figs, cardoons and persimmons. This early influence and curiosity led him into the family business - where it all started with dough - when he studied bagel-making at his father's side and then learned the ropes at his cousins' pizzeria, Villa Borghese. The discovery of his natural palate and affinity for cooking led him to attend the Culinary Education Center in Asbury Park, NJ. Degree in hand, he soon worked alongside iconic New York chefs Sirio Maccioni of the world renowned Le Cirque, as well as Drew Nieporent and Michael Bao at Mai House. During Chef Colletti's tenure as Chef de Cuisine at Mai House, the restaurant was awarded two stars by Frank Bruni of The New York Times, and named among the Top 10 Best Restaurants in New York City by The New York Times. He spent more than two years at Mai House; during that time Chef Colletti traveled throughout Vietnam for several months to study the local food and culture, and was chosen to guest chef at the 5-Star Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After five years in New York, he decided to join friend and celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn in Washington D.C. At the Sunnyside Group. There he would play a vital role in the conceptualization of Chef Mendelsohn's restaurant, Good Stuff Eatery, located in Capitol Hill. With the national success of Good Stuff Eatery, Chef Colletti was invited to participate in Food Network's 2009 Food & Wine Festival "Rachel Ray Burger Bash", in both Miami and New York, where he earned back-to-back victories for his creation of the "Colletti Smokehouse Burger". Food Network then invited Chef Mendelsohn and Chef Colletti to compete in an episode of Iron Chef America, where they would "Battle Prosciutto" versus world famous Chef Michael Symon in an episode that aired in March 2010. Chef Colletti was then given responsibility for opening and overseeing operations at the second Spike Mendelsohn venture, We, The Pizza, also in Capitol Hill. We, the Pizza became an instant sensation, and within three months of opening was voted one of the "Top 50 Best Pizzerias in America" by USA TODAY
