Great restaurant with exceptional service

A small group of us went to eat at Vaso's and all of our meals were wonderful. There were six of us and we made reservations for 6:00. It was perfect timing because there was a lineup waiting for tables shortly after that. Our waitress was very good and the food was exceptional. We had a mix of... read more

A friend took me here today for the first time. I loved the Avocado stuffed with crab meat Salad! I will be going back to try the other tempting dishes I saw on their extensive menu for such a quaint cafe. And I loved the atmosphere... tasteful decor and soft music.

This was my second time here and the food was as good as I last remembered it. My veal chop was top notch. The others ordered the various sliced veal preparations and the pork chop. Nobody was disappointed. The prices are very reasonable.

This restaurant operates out of the historic "Dixie Pig" site. The owner is from Cyprus and prides herself in preparing meals that are very satisfying with that European flair. She is the chef and very personable. Many of the customers are regulars. The meals are outstanding and wine choices varied. Try the nightly special, I'll guarantee that you won't be... More

After driving by this place for years, decided to stop in for dinner. My first surprise was that despite the Dixie Pig sign, this is not a barbecue place. Instead it is an AMAZING Greek restaurant. The Spanakopita were the lightest version of the spinach and feta classic I have ever had, can't stop thinking of them. I had the... More

Being a frequent visitor of Greece I found nowhere in the USA the Greek feeling in hospitality and above all the food. What a treat.

We ate early as my friend said it gets busy. We were pleasantly greeted and the service was excellent. I had the Greek Shrimp and it was very good, as was the Greek beer. I would certainly go again.

Went with a group of friends to this out of the way restaurant near the Old Town Alexandria. Nice cozy spot decent food and great service. Had the Vaso's Greek Style Shrimp, excellent dish prepared perfectly. Good selection of wines, (Retsina) was exceedingly tasty. This is my third visit and I look forward to a return visit soon.

I decided tonight to go solo to this restaurant. Ordered the lamb chops which were overdone but surprisingly tender. I suggest ordering them medium rare if you like medium as they continue to cook. The meat pasta sauce has flavor. The salad is fresh and crisp. I would definitely go again as this restaurant with a Greek and Italian menu... More

My friends who used to live in the Powhatan area of Old Town Alexandria invited me to dine with them in this old-fashion Greek restaurant that has been establishment for many years. Although I prefer Vaso's King Street location, the food in this cosier place is as good and I can understand the appeal to the locals who live in... More
