“Great cannolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I was looking all over DC for a great cannoli. My husband's from NYC, and all he wanted for his birthday was a cannoli. Vace had it- fresh made sweet ricotta with little chocolate chips filled to order. The classic cannoli. They also have great pizza if you want a quick slice. We've also bought their fresh pastas several times, and those are also delicious.

“place for good italian pastas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

got some frozen raviolis for dinner. great. will go back to try their sandwiches and pizza. the only downside is that if youre visiting there is no seating. last point, as in the "godfather", "dont forget the cannolis"

“Holy Moley try the Cannoli!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We walked to Vace after a trip to the zoo with our children- it is very near the Cleveland Park metro stop. The food was great, the kids had a slice of pizza, we had an italian sub and spinach stuffed focaccia. The food comes wrapped in foil and we took it to a bench across the street (no seating in the restaurant/store). My husband went back across the street to buy us a cannoli and I'm glad he did!!! After sharing one we went back across the street and bought 4 more. They are fantastic!!!! It was fun to try a local treasure instead of boring, overpriced zoo food. Thanks tripadvisor reviewers for helping us find this spot.

“Neighborhood Italian Deli--Great Pizza!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

First of all, Vace is not a restaurant. There's no place to sit down, so it's carry-out only. Second, you go to Vace for the thin pizza. A large is about $10-$11, a real steal. It's not the best pizza in DC (that would be 2Amys), but it's very good for the price.

Vace also has other deli staples like proscuitto, cheeses, olives, etc. and excellent frozen pasta.

Tip: Call ahead and order your pizza. You can pick it up in about 15-20 minutes. You can also order pizza by the slice.

“Homemade Italian Food!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Is just a small piece of Italy in DC. Is like being in Italy for sure...homemade pasta, pizza, sauces, sandwiches, chocolates, awesome wine selection and coffee all from italy. You can order pizza or subs and they are freshly made! I wish they become a sitting deli!!
