Was recommended by the doubletree. It's only a block away. I pictured it to be an Italian restaurant with a bar, but it comes off as more of a bar with some tables in it. Sat at the bar and ordered a Pinot. Was not...More

The pizza at this place is always rockin, never fails according to my experience thus far. The specialty pizzas are my favorite, crust is just right! However, the delivery has pretty poor customer service skills, and it kind of deters the urge to order in....More

Better than the average Pizzeria. Great bar, great menu...Try Nonna's Meatballs as an appetizer. Their White Spinach Pizza with mushrooms is the best. Best when eaten in house, and not stuffed in a box. One of the better value restaurants in the area.

Been living here in JC for the summer for the last two years and this is the first time we stepped into VB-3. It's a very short walk from our upstairs apartment at the Monaco. Not a bad scenery with a nice looking bar, changing...More

Off main street but easy to find and well worth it. Very busy lunch crowd (mostly take-out). They take pride in serving quality pizza, etc.

Late arrival, tired, and hungry? VB3 Chicken Parm over ziti for the win. Huge portions, hot, fresh, and fast delivery. Now, they are a restaurant, I have not had the pleasure of visiting it, but they say it is nice.

Description
Chef Michael Colletti began his culinary journey at a young age growing up watching his grandparents and father, who migrated from Sicily, preparing the family recipes with home grown ingredients such as figs, cardoons and persimmons. This early influence and curiosity led him into the family business - where it all started with dough - when he studied bagel-making at his father's side and then learned the ropes at his cousins' pizzeria, Villa Borghese. The discovery of his natural palate and affinity for cooking led him to attend the Culinary Education Center in Asbury Park, NJ. Degree in hand, he soon worked alongside iconic New York chefs Sirio Maccioni of the world renowned Le Cirque, as well as Drew Nieporent and Michael Bao at Mai House. During Chef Colletti's tenure as Chef de Cuisine at Mai House, the restaurant was awarded two stars by Frank Bruni of The New York Times, and named among the Top 10 Best Restaurants in New York City by The New York Times. He spent more than two years at Mai House; during that time Chef Colletti traveled throughout Vietnam for several months to study the local food and culture, and was chosen to guest chef at the 5-Star Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After five years in New York, he decided to join friend and celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn in Washington D.C. At the Sunnyside Group. There he would play a vital role in the conceptualization of Chef Mendelsohn's restaurant, Good Stuff Eatery, located in Capitol Hill. With the national success of Good Stuff Eatery, Chef Colletti was invited to participate in Food Network's 2009 Food & Wine Festival "Rachel Ray Burger Bash", in both Miami and New York, where he earned back-to-back victories for his creation of the "Colletti Smokehouse Burger". Food Network then invited Chef Mendelsohn and Chef Colletti to compete in an episode of Iron Chef America, where they would "Battle Prosciutto" versus world famous Chef Michael Symon in an episode that aired in March 2010. Chef Colletti was then given responsibility for opening and overseeing operations at the second Spike Mendelsohn venture, We, The Pizza, also in Capitol Hill. We, the Pizza became an instant sensation, and within three months of opening was voted one of the "Top 50 Best Pizzerias in America" by USA TODAY
