Nice Restaurant !

Very nice ambiance. The chef came to the table to explain about the day's special. The food that we ordered , the starter and main course, had quite nice presentation and excellent taste.

On visiting the restaurant, on a quiet Tuesday evening, we found the restaurant to be extremely quiet. we opted to eat in the lounge and were the only diners there. We ordered the drinks, the server forgot to ask one of us what we would like to drink and then ordered our appetisers. Strangely we weren't asked to order our... More

We had the best Calamari that we have ever tasted. The rest of the food was prepared perfectly. I had chicken, mushroom Fetachini and my wife had the Salmon with green beans and roasted potatoes. It was prepared superbly. The service was wonderful. Fantastic dining experience and we would recommend it highly.

The gnocchi's at Va Bene are the best. I recommend this place especially for the happy hour in the lounge area.

We four, three adults and one child, ate here for dinner on a Saturday night. The ambiance was lovely, especially for a strip mall - can hardly believe it's in such a setting when you're in the dining room. Too cool out for the patio, but that looks great too! The food was awesome, authentic, house made pastas and delicious... More

We were the first customers, my husband is in a wheelchair and they placed us in the furthest table possible. Which is very inconvenient when you try to leave because you have to ask everybody to move out of the way. The host was very rude and the waiter was not kind. Additionally the food was not good. In general... More

Stopped in for some apps. The mussels were great. The Bruschetta was tasteless and the bread looked like someone sat on it three days ago. I couldn't believe they'd serve bread that old and bad looking...

First, this is an absolutely great, authentic Italian restaurant. The bar is such a fun place that we rarely make it to the dinning room. The bartenders are the best- generous pours and friendly conversation. The appetizers are 1/2 for happy hour. The eggplant is to die for and the calamari is so good they should just serve it without... More

Walk in and sit at the large rectangular bar area and you can smell the flavors of their home made appetizers Italian Style. To many to list they are also half price and great. Then they highlight a premium vodka and pour any flavor of martini for 5 dollars and I mean a very generous pour. There's much more to... More
