After having a number of really nice dinners at Va Bene, we arrived on a Thursday night in May to find a loud party on the patio. This was OK because it was hot so we sat inside near the bar. The bar denizens were also loud. Well, it's a bar. We ordered drinks and dinner. The service was exceptional... More

I like the vibe in Va Bene and I understand it is primarily a wine bar but with the popularity of craft beers these days, you would think they could add at least one tap. Their appetizers are always good but without getting a drink I really want, we don't tend to go there often.

My wife and I tried this place for the first time today. We eat lunch out every day and are always on the lookout for new places to try. I can begin by saying my wife, or "fussy eater" as I call her, said this is definitely worth a return visit. The staff was very warm and genuinely inviting. We... More

4 of us went for dinner - had some happy hour apps - bruschetta, grilled veg's and calamari. The latter was the best wig big portions. The martinis were like a flat soda, seemed watered down. Main courses - chicken with capers tomatoes and black olives quite nice- marguerita pizza was quite good, and the linguini seafood was very good.... More

My friends & I come here often for happy hour, then stay to dance to live bands. The food never fails to impress. Favorites are the salad Va Bene, the melenzane (eggplant), & all of the pasta dishes. Food is served piping hot. Wait staff are very professional, although service can be erratic at times. Atmosphere is more upscale, so... More

The food was good but not outstanding. The atmosphere was very noisy. We were seated in the bar area where there were multiple TV monitors.

Came here with my brother in law for his birthday. We ate early (5 p.m.) to accommodate his parents wishes. We were a party of 5, and despite being the ONLY people in the restaurant at that time, we were seated next to the kitchen. Now mind you, since it wasn't busy this wasn't as bad as during peak hours.... More
