Vona's is a staple of Italian cuisine in town. The wait staff is wonderful. They do whatever they can do to make your dining experience enjoyable. Try their creamy house Italian dressing on your salad. Yummy! Any of their dishes are great from the spaghetti to the lasagna to their pork chops.

We have been to Vona many times in the past 40 years, but not recently since we now live in Florida. My husband and I met friends for dinner and we were immediately greeted with an odoriferous smell. Our table was not quite ready so we went to the bar for a drink. A few minutes later we were seated... More

I ate here with old friends. It is a wonderful family owned restaurant in which you can find the third generation of the Vona family. I had capellini (angel hair) pasta with marinara sauce and sweet Italian sausage. The meal was prepared perfectly, but the sausage had different taste. Good, but different. It was quite sweet. My companions had London... More

Having never been to Vona's before, we weren't sure what to expect, but we were pleasantly surprised. You can tell it's been there awhile which is a good sign, and although it's a little dated, the food and service was excellent. My husband and I only had salads, which were more than enough for a meal. We are anxious to... More

We asked at the front desk of our hotel where to go for a casual Italian restaurant and were told Vona's or Canale's. We didn't use our GPS and Vona's was the place we happened upon. They have outdoor seating but it was quite a warm evening so we chose to eat indoors. I do agree with another reviewer that... More

This restaurant put on a dinner for 60 people and it was so awesome. Their Ravioli is famous throughout the area and it is easy to taste why. The ham and veggies were excellent and the chef salad they served was so fresh. It really made an excellent meal and increased the fun of the party because the staff were... More

I'm from outta town and was told to go here by some coworkers, that had been there. I normally look for a few staple dishes at Italian restaurants, that I couldn't find. I'm not a huge fan of Italian food, and this place hasn't changed my mind. If your dish has an option between marinara or "Vona's sauce", get the... More

We eat here frequently. The service is excellent as is the food. Families welcome. Has banquet facilities which we have used and been very pleased with. Has a bar area if you want a drink and maybe a small starter. Family owned. Atmosphere is very pleasant. Great place to go for any occasion.

Salad was nothing but lettuce and 2 cherry tomatoes very small. Chicken Parm. was just OK tasted like a frozen patty. Personal pizza was under cooked and very greasy, puddled on the plate under pizza. After delivering the meal never saw the server again to check on the meal or fill the drinks.
