Great food

this is a restaurant for adventurous eaters. The chef selects the menu. It is a fixed price menu. We added the wine selections. It was the best meal we have had other than in Paris. It is expensive but worth it. A wonderful dining experience

It's hard to get a table at vetri, even after all these years. I have been trying to eat here for quite a while and finally got in this weekend. Had the vegetarian tasting menu, and it was so incredibly good, as expected of course. This place is a treasure, an expensive one, but well worth the visit if it... More

Spectacular dinner. The tasting menu included crab with snail butter, an onion crepe, spinach gnocchi, almond tortellini, veal, tenderloin and a panna cotta. Truly an amazing night of delicious food and perfected paired wines.

Each and every course was absolutely delicious but our favorite by far was the first pasta course where we were served three delicious pastas The taleggio ravioli with vincotto was the stuff dreams are made of. I'm still thinking about the wine sauce reduction. We also had the wine pairing which was spot on. I don't know much about wine... More

I am Italian and I went to Vetri to celebrate the first night I got married. The chef take the Italian cuisine to another level, he wants you to explore the taste of every single dish so you won't have just a meal but a culinary experience. I big part of it is the impeccable service, those wonderful guys will... More

Another anniversary and what do you get for each other? A reservation for Vetri. We are very much into tasting menus and chef's choice so this was a must do restaurant for us. But as prepared as we were, we were more than impressed. The location was fun and we had a table that looked out onto the street. Then... More

Celebrated my birthday with my immediate family. Food, wine, service was all impeccable. We received a warm welcome upon entering the townhouse restaurant, seated promptly and immediately served a flute of bubbly wine! Each course of dinner was accompanied by a wine selection that complemented the food and all of it was carefully explained by the wait staff. A special... More

Great pizza, great food and a wonderful warm friendly place. Perfect for families and couples.. they have bar seating where you can watch them prepare and cook the pizzas in a wood stove.. very cool.

What a culinary experience. It was on my bucket list of restaurants to go to and so glad we did. Everything was awesome - from the food, ambiance and service. I will absolutely go back. The wine pairing was perfect.
