“Cute place and great outdoor area!”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

I have been here a few times and do really love the atmosphere of the place. The outdoor patio area is so cute. The indoor area and bar is quite cozy. The food was great the first time I went but when I returned in December with a group of friends, I found the food wasn't that great. It was good but nothing special. The service could have been improved. We had to speak to the owner in order for him to get the waiters to be more responsive.

“Awesome!!”
Reviewed November 7, 2011

We walked around NY looking for a place to eat. We saw the line of Vespas parked outside and decided to go in. Try the chicken parm. It's amazing!

“A nice little Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed November 6, 2011

Vespas is a classic little Italian restaurant, nothing special but nohting to complain about. If you are after a good pasta when in New York - Vespas is worth a visit, however , it is not a stand-out!

“Favorite Italian Restaurant in NYC”
Reviewed September 22, 2011

This restaurant is a small joint on Second Avenue on the Upper East Side, with ordinary interior decor and a cute area in the back with outdoor seating. However, the food is creative, interesting and very very tasty. It's not your mama's Italian food, but its really good.
