“Nice neighborhood place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Our hotel recommended this spot to us. It was our first night in CA and after a long drive from the airport, it was a welcoming restaurant with good food, mainly italian cuisine. Service was good.

“Like Eating at the Hotel Dining Room”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014 via mobile

You know when you're on a business trip in Cincinnati and you're tired and you just go down to the dining room at the Hyatt and it's okay but nothing you'll even remember tomorrow? Well, that's what it's like eating at Vasco. The mighty meh. One hint, any place that keeps its liquor stored against the glass window with the light and heat beating down on it can't care too much.

“A Cozy Corner Bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Long ago it outgrew its local tavern roots. Today Vasco is reliable for a date, a family gathering or just hanging out. The pizzas are worth it and the service sturdy and steady.

“Five out of ten”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We were encouraged by the noisy crowd and obvious popularity of the place but found the food to be very mediocre, and the service no better. When you have to ask for more water, more bread, etc., that's not good service. My calamari was lost in a bizarre mixture of just about every imaginable vegetable. The Caesar salad at eight bucks was OK but of very modest proportions. Hate to be a party pooper but Vasco wasn't good enough to get us back for a second visit.
