“Meal with a Colleague”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014

Having just booked in to the hotel opposite, we went to the restaurant for an meal. Although late in the evening. It was clear that the staff were getting prepared to finish for the night. The food was acceptable and scoffed as I had not had anything all day. The menu was in German, my colleague lives in the area and did the ordering so not sure if the have an English menu. The restaurant was not busy and a table of ladies opposite very noisy. Food was reasonable. In the end the bill was slightly more than we expected.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013

We visited Vetro last saturday night as we attended a concert in the area. Reading the previous reviews and looking at the photos and website, three things worried me slightly: 1) many mentioned poor service, 2) we normally prefer cosy small restaurants: it looked possibly too modern and sleek, 3) the menu was covering too many types of cuisines... could it all be good quality? Well, none of it held true. The service was impeccable, our waitress was very friendly and competent, could recommend some good wines and made a good show of serving the pasta 'Perfetto' (i.e. rolling the tagliatelle into a parmesan form, then grating a fair amount of truffle on it). The atmosphere was cosy despite the large room, and it wasn't loud. Finally, the food was excellent: vitello tonnato and potato and chorizo soup for starters, pasta 'perfetto' with beef, parmesan and truffle to die for, finally Tuskanische Hackbraten with sauce a bit on the sweet side, but hey, just a question of taste. No space for dessert. All in all: we'll be back, but this first meal will be hard to top! And you can make online reservations, which is a plus.

“To avoid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Too too too long (about an hour to be served, and how many minutes for the bill ?).
Really too expensive for this kind of food : I received a canned tomato sauce on my pastas instead of real cherry tomatoes written on the menu

“The Italian flavours make it a place to be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

This place is just across from the Holiday Inn - what a little gem hidden away from the main routes of the metro area! The food was great, the service excellent, and the bill, well, the bill could have been a little less heavy, but what the heck! Just try it out!

“Excellent Restaurant”

I stayed in the holiday inn across from vetro and we went there both nights. The decor is amazing, the food was to die for and the service was excellent.
