We visit Vidalia regularly, Sal (owner / chef) and his team have never disappointed us. Once again I had the Veal Parm with Penne which is always good, my wife and friends had Eggplant Parm, chicken and a fish dish; all were very good. We opted for a 'Vidalia Onion' appetizer to start the meal which we have not had for awhile; everyone was pleased with it. The service level is very good; the staff is young and energetic and keep the courses coming without interrupting the conversations / meals.

My daughter attends the boarding school across the street from Vidalia...the restaurant does catering for Saturday night events ("feeds") at the school and is a popular spot for parents to take their children for lunch and dinners when they are in town…

I was planning my daughter‘s 18th surprise birthday party…
Sal was simply incredible to deal with. I cannot stress enough how easy and what a wonderful experience it was to plan with him.

The restaurant is closed on Mondays but he opened for our party of 22. We used the outdoor heated patio (on a cool october night) which was just gorgeous and perfect for the occasion...
He thought of everything..he adapted the menu to fit our needs i.e. teenage girls, vegetarian, gluten-free etc...he remembered small details which can make such a difference, like music, lighting etc…
and he really listened…
I am generally a bit of a control freak and very detail oriented but I only had to say things to him once
and they got done…

I was not actually present at the party but throughout the evening, Sal send me photos via text which was so heartwarming...above & beyond.

my daughter and the girls said the food was, in keeping as it always is, outstanding...
they devoured every last bite.

Also, I have to mention Sal’s waitress who was the only wait person for that evening. Marlena was fantastic, professional and supportive...
everything she did, she did with a smile.
She has a delightful personality and was accommodating and thoughtful.

I highly recommend Vidalia for any of your celebrations as well as an everyday lunch, dinner & catering needs.

There is at least one to three Italian restaurants in every town. They are all good restaurants, but every once in a while you hit one that is just over the top. Vidalia is the restaurant whose Italian food surpasses most restaurants. The salads, appetizers and main courses were all over the top meals. Our server "Sophia" had great charm and with the restaurant so busy was still able to give our table of six the attention we needed. I fact while watching all the other servers, I was very impressed with them all. After our meal the chef came to our table and we were able to thank him for such a terrific meal. This is a must stop for anyone looking for that off the chart Italian dinner. Thank you all at Vidallia!

We had a marvelous dinner. We started with the shrimp and calamari Toscano. The tomato sauce was very flavorful and the seafood was cooked perfectly. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and efficient. They can make recommendations and changes to meet dietary restrictions. The Osso Buco was rich, delicious, and soul-satisfying. The Veal Fichi was the perfect dish for a cool evening. This is a great place for a romantic dinner.

My son's wedding was held at Vidalia's out on the patio, and what a great choice! Charming atmosphere, amazing food, and genuine kind service all helped to make a special day even more special. Everyone had a wonderful time, and felt it was very unique and special. The week before, we also celebrated my husband's birthday in the restaurant, and that was also a very special treat. I can't say enough good things about Vidalia's, and strongly recommend it. Looking forward to our next visit!
