Visited over a year ago and had a bad experience at lunch. This time was a charm. We shared a delicious marg pizza and a lunch entree. The entree special was flounder over a bed of angel hair surrounded by clams, and mussels in a light tomato sauce. It was delicious. So, happy to have returned. Service was excellent. Our... More

We decided to give this place a try after seeing that it was highly rated in the newspaper. It supposedly has some of the best pizza in NJ. I should've known something was wrong when we walked into the restaurant at 7pm on a Friday and found the place to be mostly empty. Isn't that one of the busiest times... More

Vesta wood fired pizza and bar brings a little ambiance to any group or party. Their fried calamari was superb and Penni pasta was fabulous. Pizza as it would go is that one with bacon was very impressive but one with guida cheese tasted terrible. Parking is a little dicey so always be on the lookout for a car leaving... More

When visiting Vesta, we sat down, ordered drinks and put our order in for pizza... and then... waited, and waited and waited. Everyone around us got their dinners. People who came in after us got their dinners... and we just waited. The waitress saw I was getting angry and then came over and said, I am so sorry... your pizza... More

It is attractive from the outside and inside. My husband declared he wanted to try it and he is not a fan of eating out. I've been there for lunch and the food is good. Its a little more expensive than I'd like but not so much that I wouldn't go.

Went early on a Friday night before the crowds - we ordered the Rice balls and a Salsiccia pie. Both were very good. The crust was on the thin side, which we like. The toppings were fresh and generous. We enjoyed a glass of wine but would have preferred a BYO restaurant. Our waiter was good but not particularly attentive.... More

The pizza works because all the elements work. The crust is crisp and perfectly charred. The sauce has the right spices and not overly salty.The cheese is silky and milky. The toppings (pepperoni is amazing) take on the flavor of the smoke fire. The synthesis: the best pizza. And the calamari appetizer and the Dogfish Palo Santo....Its great to find... More

A small group of us went into Vesta for dinner last weekend. There were 6 of us with 2 separate reservations so there was minimal expectation of dining together. We were immediately accommodated and sat all together at one table. The food and service was overall fantastic. However, the real reason I am writing this review is because of one... More

A great place with a really great pizza. It's a higher end type of pizza with many options. A great bar and a good variety of food. A nice place for business or even families.
