“Good Italian grocery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Given the lack of Italian stores in this area, Vace stands out by providing real Italian sub sandwiches, fresh tasty pizza by the slice and a broad variety of frozen entrees and Italian necessities.

This is not a restaurant but a place to get your food to go. They have a couple of parking spaces but it is in the heart of downtown. Be sure to check their hours too, as it is more of a lunchtime place.

“Excellent pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Take-out deli/pizza place. No sit down area. Best pizza I've ever had. Take-out Italian grocery and home-cooked food items as well. Defintely try if you're in the area. Reasonable prices. Two store-fronts in from Wisconsin on Miller. When they ask you if you want a bag, that means a 5 cent tax.

“Best Dough Anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is the greatest little Italian deli around. We get pizza dough from here for our annual pizza roll dinner at Christmas time. Their cheeses are wonderful. They have homemade sauce. The individual pastas are all good-many interesting varieties. We have gone here for years. They are always busy and always good.

“Can not say enough about Vace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

For ages, Vace has been our go-to source for Italian deli items, fresh pasta and pizza (pies, slices, pre-cooked or dough & sauce) and it has yet to fail us. This diamond in the rough is an INSTITUTION for which "best pizza in DC" does not give enough credit. Go there, it's worth the trip. Get a slice for yourself while you browse, and don't forget to get a cannoli for that special someone...

“Get your real Italian fix here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This place is the real deal for family Italian delicatessens. It's grinders are excellent and have a light oil/vinegar dressing and NO Mayonnaise! The bread is of a good texture and the meat and cheeses are very tasty. If you long for the true Italian sandwich like in Phillie or New York go here! You can also get all you need to make a yummy sauce or Mediterranean inspired meal at home to. Candies are good too!
