Description: This urbane and upscale pizza and Italian small-plates place is something the Peninsula has been waiting for. I'm usually a traditionalist when it comes to pizza toppings, but even their more unusual versions--sausage with honey!--work like a charm and are absolutely delicious. Small plates are very good, too, although I thought the bare-bones meatballs would have benefited from a little tomato sauce. The owners are very hands on and extremely welcoming, and the lively vibe would be right at home in SF or even Wine Country. A great addition to the Peninsula dining scene!

I've been to Vesta a couple times for dinner and it has never disappointed. After reading other reviews, we tried the honey and sausage pizza which was a little spicy but fantastic. Their salads are also terrific, but the Brussels sprouts (a special one night I think) were unbelievably good - if they have those on the menu again, definitely try them! For any sweet tooths, the brown sugar lemonade is worth getting. You can't really go wrong with anything on the menu - appetizers, pizza, salads, dessert... the only downside is that it's generally really crowded and can be hard to get a table, so make a reservation and be prepared for a little noise in the restaurant. Eating outside on the patio (with spaceheaters) is really enjoyable and a little quieter - love the ambiance.

We've been several times since a friend introduced us to Vesta. Unusually flavorful salads, in house cheeses, exceptional pizza combinations and tasty small plates. Very nice wine and beer selections and their ice creams and gelatos are amazing. The staff is first rate.

Salads and pizza are SOOOOO good! You just have to try it. It is always busy and they only take a limited number of reservations so plan ahead! You won't be disappointed!

We did not actually eat here but wish that we had as we were invited to
a birthday dinner party being held in the restaurant next to Vesta and it was not the best experience.
But on our way in and on our way out of the place next to Vesta I could not help but
notice that all the tables inside and on the sidewalk in front of Vesta were full of
people devouring fabulous looking pizza and other Italian delicacies.
You can bet that our next trip to Redwood City will include a meal at Vesta.
Probably best to call in advance for a reservation as this is a very popular place. Our eyes
were bigger than our stomachs as they say.
