Took my family for Palm Sunday dinner and they were super excited because neither of them had ever visited this establishment.

The place is very chic and the service is phenomenal.

We began our gastronomic journey with a variety of thirst quenching perfectly prepared “Rita’s”. We moved onto the deliciously and delicately prepared appetizers including baked clams, grilled octopus and chicken meatballs. We continued our savory trip with Pollo Rollatine Villa Russo chicken stuffed with raisins, pignoli, prosciutto, fontina, mozzarella & mushrooms in a light marsala sauce, Parmigiana Chicken served with spaghetti, classically prepared and my favorite linguine with white clam sauce. We ended with our espressos and out of this world “dolce” including a Pistachio and ricotta cake and a flourless chocolate cake.

We will return as we cannot seem to be spoiled enough

I was there for a 70th birthday dinner party. The food truly complimented the great company I was in. The lemon pepper fried shrimp was amazing and my entree was the Shrimp Ripieni, simply heaven. As if that was not enough, the service was impeccable. From our Server Eric while at dinner, to our server Mark once we moved to the lounge for drinks to Tielle the hostess who was just so amazing and truly understood just how special my boyfriend wanted to make the night for his mom. You only turn 70 once and she enjoyed herself immensely and Vetro helped us do it. Thanks Tielle, you’re the best.

Wow!  The restaurant is beautiful.  Valet parking.  I had a party of 11 last night and we were treated like royalty.  We waited at the comfortable lounge while waiting for the entire party to arrive and ordered cocktails from the bar there.  The wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable.  I had the shell steak which was perfectly seasoned!  Nice portion size.  The rest of the group had skirt steak, lamb chops and pork chops.  Each of us was very happy with our selection.  For appetizers we had clams, shrimp, chicken meat balls, stuffed mushrooms—all very delicious!  For dessert I had a mini cannoli and it was divine!!  Perfect dinner with perfect friends!  All for under 80$ per person!!

Celebrated our wedding anniversary at Vetro with an intimate dinner. Service and food were impeccable! I can always rely on Vetro to make our family’s celebrations the very best.  Had my son’s engagement party here and it turned out wonderful.

I have to say I drive almost 2 hours at least 2 times a year to eat at Vetro. Last night we had our holiday party there and the food was great and staff went out of their way to make sure everything was what we wanted. Already planning a summer party there.

Nothing compares to Vetro.  Very classy, great staff.  This is the only fine dining Italian food I enjoy eating out.

The service is impeccable from the time the valet takes your car to picking up your doggy bag at the front desk.  The servers are respectful and go to all the way to satisfy the guests.  Wide selection of great food.  Thank you.
