Tapas-Style Italian Dining
Though the influences behind Vespa Restaurant's dishes span many Italian regions, the menu here has something special to tie everything together: family recipes. And to make them shine, the team uses house-made pastas, farm-to-table ingredients, and imported Italian specialties throughout the menu. Mediterranean sea bass and New Zealand racks of lamb are highlights among the entrees, and house selections of olives, bruschetta, and cheese impart the feel of a homey multicourse family dinner in Italy.
A Secret Garden in Uptown
Vespa Restaurant's outdoor patio opens to diners like a secret garden in the middle of the city, with pergola-like shading structures and hanging plants that bring in a touch of nature. Shecky's Nightlife heralds the outdoor area for its "heating lamps for cold Manhattan nights," noting that "the garden alone is worth the trek uptown."
