“where's the service?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

2nd time at this place, this time went on a Sunday night, place was not busy at all. "Kristen N" was our waitress. She got us water then said she would be right back with our bread.. 5 min went by.. 10 min went by.. we asked for bread. We placed our order, no grated cheese was offered with the pasta dish, our waters were not refilled at all during the dinner. The food and bread were excellent just bad service.

“Great service, huge portions, nice atmosphere!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

We were very impressed:

#1 with the service at Vazzy's. Abbey was a wonderful server, so ask to be seated in her section if she's working. The waitstaff took a team approach to making sure that our every need was met, and everyone who helped us was very friendly.

#2 with the quality of the food and the portion size. Our two entrees were enough to feed a family of four. And on that note, Vazzy's offers family-sized portions, allowing bigger parties to order several dishes to share. We enjoyed the antipasto salad, fruitti del mare (featuring generous portions of all kinds of seafood, including lobster), and baked eggplant rollatinis.

#3 with the atmosphere. We dined on the patio, but the bar area, the banquet room, and the main dining room also seemed like great places for date night, a night out with friends, or a family dinner.

We drove 30 minutes out of our way to visit Vazzy's, and the drive was well worth our time.

“Good food and reasonable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

My family loves Italian and my son is also a picky eater.

We started with a tasty bread basket.

Their calamari was very well done. My son ordered Tortellini with vodka sauce. He remarked that the cheese filling has an intense flavor he has never tasted before. Our other pasta dishes all were just as delicious.

The restaurant has a nice chic decor. Service was very pleasant.
