Unusual place with good food

This is a Greek restaurant in an old Bar-B-Q location that has mostly Italian dishes on the menu. The food was good and the service was excellent. The prices were average. I had the Chicken Parmigiana while my wife and daughter each had the Shrimp Marinara.

Vaso's Kitchen, in the former Dixie Pig Bar-B-Q building -- the sign is still on the roof - is a gem, Greek cuisine at its best! The service was friendly and efficient and, although we arrived late, a party of four, shortly before the kitchen closed for the evening, we were rewarded with an excellent meal. We weren't rushed and... More

Don't let the garish "The Dixie Pig Bar-B-Q" sign on top of the building put you off stopping. The sign is historic and has no relationship what so ever to the restaurant in the building. I eat here once or twice a year, usually pre-theatre. While they have a lot of excellent dishes on the menu, over the last several... More

Vaso's will go unnoticed by many in the Alexandria area as it is tucked away between Old Town and Del Ray. But for those in the neighborhood, you can bet it is a "Go To" kind of place. My husband and I went for a quiet dinner and everything was great! We shared their creamy chicken, lemon and rice soup... More

The food here was simply exceptional, and I mean everything for all members of our dinner party exceeded expectations. Pasta was served with just the right amount of " chew"; seafood was fresh and tasty. If you have the opportunity and the appetite, try the huge pasta/seafood dish featuring, shrimp, mussels, scallops, etc, etc - it is really excellent. The... More

I was on a business trip, staying at the Sheraton Suites in Old Town Alexandria. I checked TripAdvisor and Vaso's came up in the Top 10. It was only 0.4 miles away, so I walked there. When I arrived I found a homey stand alone restaurant with plenty of outdoor seating and a family with children enjoying the weather. But... More

Great food at a great price. They have two locations in Alexandria. This review is for the one on Powhatan Street. They have a parking lot but it only holds 6 to 8 cars. Street parking is in the surrounding neighborhoods. I was able to park next to the restaurant. They have outdoor seating but there is no views so... More

First visit on a friend's recommendation. Small, cozy place with great service and delicious food. Greek appetizers were excellent and the fresh seafood special was amazing. All fresh selections with marinara that had a nice touch of spice and good flavor. Ended with the tiramisu. Yum! The only "negative" was the overdressed house salad. Super service from friendly and knowledgeable... More

This small family restaurant serves wonderful food in a cozy, pleasant atmosphere. The house specials were really good on a recent visit. We had the fish and the veal chop and enjoyed both. Our appetizers of crab stuffed mushrooms and oysters Rockefeller were delicious. Our server was so nice and helpful, and made our experience even better. There were small... More
