The food is always incredible and the atmosphere is so cozy and inviting. I've tried so many dishes on the menu, and they've all been incredible. The soups are always delicious and the pastas are out of this world. I always look forward to coming here.

Such a cozy, welcoming atmosphere. Marco (the owner) could not be more attentive and considerate. The food is consistently impeccable and the menu is thoughtful and varied. I come here at least once a week, and I look forward to it every

We had our rehearsal dinner here for our 2003 wedding. The private room was so quaint, and the food and service were wonderful! It's a great place to have an event or to just go for a delicious Italian meal!

This was my first time to Vespa, and I was excited to go after driving by it thousands of times. I found the menu to be short but terrific with a nice variety of options (from shell steak to lobster and black linguine to basic pasta dishes). The food itself was prepared well and was extremely flavorful, even a simple shrimp appetizer (that was a little small but the flavor made up for this). The bread was okay, though the crust was a little too crunchy, but the wine was good (decent wine list).

It did however take a while for our waiter to come over and I had to ask for a wine menu. I found that people who looked like they could be our waiter would sort of walk by and look at our table but look away when I looked up at them (which I was doing to signal that we were ready to order). This happened at least twice. I think that one of the hosts may just have a nervous personality, which was why he had that look about him that another reviewer described. If they could somehow improve their service, I would go back. Otherwise, I'll probably skip it in favor of another place I have yet to try.

Cons: Parking, Service

When you walk into Vespa you think you are on a small Italian street. There are posters on the walls and, well, it just feels like Italy. The staff are all very personable and try to make your experience as seamless as possible.

The food is very good as well. I particularly like the fresh home made pasta. My best friend flipped for the osso buco with risotto. Once I had a veal chop and, although more than I could eat (the dog was quite pleased ), I wished I had a bigger stomach. It was wonderful.

This is certainly someplace that everyone should try. It is not difficult to find because more often than not there is a Vespa scooter out front.

I love this quaint, little Italian restaurant. It's intimate setting is perfect for dates but is equally suited to family gatherings. The waitstaff make you feel like you're part of their family, especially the ever pleasant hostess. The decor and menu are fun without being kitschy and the food is consistently good.

I expected more from Vespa based on the Zagat guide, but the whole experience was truly mediocre. One of my tests for a good Italian restaurant is the Caprese salad. In this case, the tomatoes were not very red or ripe, and the mozzarella was second rate.

I went to to this place on two occasions, each time hoping for a better experience. Both times, however, I endured lazy service, old bread, overcooked pasta and sour wine w/my meal. The waiters there are not attentive and the manager/owner, unless he knows you, has "I am doing you a favor" face when, and if, he comes to your table. Amazingly, he is at your service in half a second when it's time to collect the check and throw you a pityfull "ciao" when you're done being ripped off.

Great Place....Food is original, Service is very attentive, they make you feel like family. Decor is funky, cool, makes me feel like I am back in Rome.
A great city feel, for a spot on Long Island......
