We love the atmosphere in this hidden gem. Owners Sasha and Rudy make a great team and will do whatever they can to make your dining experience special Chef Rudy is always accommodating in the kitchen to create any special requests we may have. Sasha always takes care of us in the dining room and she always makes us feel at home. So next time you are looking for a great Italian dinner put V&R at the top of the list. We look forward to dinner at V&R very soon. Pete and Gail

Thought the food was excellent and despite the fact that there appeared to be only one person doing everything the service was good. Would definitely return.

I had purchased a groupon deal to V&R. The groupon requested you notify staff of your groupon when making a reservation (required). When I phoned to make our reservation I noticed the person on the phone was very friendly until I mentioned the groupon. When we arrived we experienced a similar welcome- friendly until I mentioned my name, which I assume she tied to the groupon deal. I Made an attempt to overlook this disdain however the food was mediocre and we were never provided with the salads which were included with the entree according to the menu. The entire restaurant was very quiet/empty for a Friday evening at dinner time with only one wait staff for waiting on tables, greeting guest

From Our Editors

V & R Italian Ristorante nestles visitors in a quiet, low-key atmosphere, provisioning them with feasts of hearty Italian American baked pastas and steaks, as well as delicate seafood plates and colorful leaves of broccoli raab. Like Garibaldi's celebratory pizza party after the Capture of Rome, the bill of fare unites northern and southern Italy through the medium of food, serving dulcet slices of tiramisu along with southern specialties, such as a spicy penne alla arrabbiata. Seafood dishes feature prominently on the menu, with shrimp swimming in piquant fra diavolo sauce, and scallops soaking up a rich white-wine-and-butter concoction. Beef ribs and broiled pork chops satisfy carnivorous cravings with tender, juicy flavor and texture.
