If you're looking for speciality gourmet products from Italy, this is your place. Great olive oils and cheeses, pastas and sauces. Also a good selection of frozen items like meat and spinach lasagna, both good, and frozen pastas like gnocchi. You can also order Italian sandwiches at counter (yum!) and they will prepare larger orders for parties if you call... More

If in DC and need homemade pasta or Italian specialty foods this is the place.. In addition they have great pizza, sandwiches and the best spinach pie. No seating so just a take out but worth the visit. No other store compares.

I love VACE! Their pizza is authentic Italian and you can always find the right italian ingredients- homemade pasta and fresh cheese. It is an institution and it never disappoints!

We have been patronizing Vace Deli for decades since it opened in DC. It is a reliable "go-to" for pizza or slices (tastes more like Italy than the brand name pizzas), Italian sandwiches, charcuterie/cheeses/condiments, excellent frozen ready-to-bake Italian meals,Italian wine and grocery items, and a wide variety of fresh cheeses, bread, and pasta. Although it is a Cleveland Park treasure,... More

Vace - easy access to a slice of pizza, an Italian cold cut sub (delicios, by the way), or a variety of frozen pastas, meatless and meatful Lasagne..

We stopped here after the morning at the zoo. Great subs, freshly made and quick. Very reasonably priced and friendly staff. Tip: they don't have seating so everything is to go. We found a nearby bench and ate was perfect.

I love visiting Vace. The staff are always friendly, even when they're busy. Ring ahead unless you're planning to buy by the slice. They have a decent selection of Italian wines for reasonable prices too - white, sparkling, rose and red. The tiramisu is frozen but delicious (leave out for 30 miutes before serving) - I've only bought the large... More

This is a classic and great authentic Italian Deli. They have a store in Cleveland Park and another in Bethesda. They offer pizza and subs as well as authentic Italian pastas, sauces, cheeses and cold cuts. Fresh Italian bread is available but sells out quickly.
