Ease of reservation, portion size, price, and most importantly taste were all spot-on. Delicious greek food. The large menu and additional Italian options were a great bonus. My only nit pick - the place was a bit musty inside like a damp basement. But nothing overly serious. Would easily recommend.

This was a great meal in a lovely restaurant. My friend and I stopped in here for lunch before I dropped her off at the airport, and we both left full and happy. Service was friendly and quick, the food was delicious, and I would happily recommend this restaurant to others!

I went here based on the high reviews from all sites and limited choices within walking distance of my hotel. I do not understand the rave reviews which seem to be primarily from locals who may not have much experience at Greek restaurants. Restaurant does not have a website and menu shown on Google search had prices 1/2 of what... More

I've never experienced such a wonderful little family restaurant before! I have my in laws in town and they just flew in from Chicago and they heard about the gyros here, so I brought them over to try them. Me and my husband have been here many of times but this was the first for my in laws. So me... More

Vaso's Kitchen is a lovely Greek-Italian-American neighborhood restaurant in a primarily residential area of north Alexandria, minutes away from Reagan National Airport and Old Town. The food is delicious -- both the sandwiches and entrees. I visit often and particularly enjoy their moussaka, which is simple but filling fare, expertly cooked. Prices are reasonable, and the service is friendly and... More

Wonderful small neighborhood greek restaurant. Everything is so delicious! The three dip spread with pita is fabulous. We always order the greek platter, with the amazing lamb. The service is friendly, and helpful without being overbearing. No other greek restaurant even comes close!

Vaso's kitchen is a very family-friendly restaurant that provides some of the best food around. The seafood dishes are exquisite and the gyros are the favorite of many patrons. They have a flaming goat cheese that is also a winner. The Chef is always accommodating to dietary restrictions.The wait staff is efficient and extremely pleasant.

Great food and atmosphere! The gyros are huge, with the lamb nicely seasoned. The pita that they used is very soft, but can still hold all the meat and fixings. Better yet, it's not dry where taking a bite would break the pita apart, which is a particular nuisance for me when I eat at other places. The Kitchen follows... More
