Basic old time decor average menue with good pricing. The staff was polite and attentive the food we had was basic chicken parm had little sauce. The pasta was average baked ziti, fried calamari was ok the baked clams were a lot of bread crumbs. All in all it was a very average place for an Italian restaurant.

We went for restaurant week 10/19/13. We read so many different reviews so we didn't know what to expect. Well, it was fantastic! We had eggplant rollitini, stuffed mushrooms, and soup. You really wanted to lick the plate. Veal parm, stuffed chicken, and shrimp vanessa! Yes to all! Desserts yum. If you liked katrinella's you'll like v&r. We have eaten... More

V & R serves authentic Italian food that is masterfully prepared. My Penne Contadina was perfect: grilled pollo (chicken), sun-dried tomatoes, sauteed broccoli rabe', al dente penne in oil and garlic. The balance of tomatoes, broccoli rabe' and garlic, truly enhanced this pollo dish, My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Pollo Saltimbuco. He can be a picky eater, however, he always... More

Came for Mother's Day was kind of skeptical since there was only one family there on this usually busy day. But to my surprise the fool was great we had the Seafood Combo w/ marinara sauce, spaghetti w/ meatballs, and chicken Alfredo. All was tasty and well seasoned. The wait for the food was not long at all. The waitress... More

Went here suring reataurnt week. It was not busy when my party of 8 got there. We ordered our meals and the service was great. Unfortunately the food we ordered was horrible. When we told the waiter he explained that there was a different cook on. I would not recommend this restaurant.

It's easy to overlook V&R because of its proximity to Capriccio and Lombardo's on lower Madison Avenue. This was the second time my wife and I ate there on visits to Albany and we weren't disappointed either time. The service was friendly, the decor is unpretentious but interesting and romantic, and the food was excellent. We both had chicken piccata... More

I don't understand the negative reviews of this beautiful eatery -- could it be an organized campaign to lower their ratings? My husband and I have dined at V & R several times, and have always found the service attentive (but not hovering) and the food excellent. The chicken piccata is superb! I love the decor -- elegant yet a... More

We happened upon this place after an event at the Times Union Center. It is within easy walking distance. This cozy place has a nice bar, where we were served by a charming and engaging woman (who we later discovered is an owner). We left for another restaurant, but returned to V&R because the atmosphere was so welcoming and very... More

I really hate to write this review because due to the economy I have a strict policy of patroning ONLY privately owned restaurants. I refuse to give my hard earned money to the large corporations killing the mom and pop restaurants. However, it has to be said that in this economy, restaurants and businesses alike need to be mindful that... More
