    Not quite the pork chops you're thinking

    The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere and next is the service. The steak and the tilapia were very good, but the pork chops come out looking more like schnitzel (breaded chicken cutlets), which is not what I expected. I didn't send it back because it tasted okay, but it was a big disappointment (and I should have sent it back). The sauteed chicken had a strange taste and texture, and it's a better idea to go for individual apps than the tasting appetizer ($19+). The finisher was nice - flourless chocolate cake.

    A Must-try

    My husband and I love this place. We've dined @ Vespa countless times. The menu changes slightly each season, but we've been very happy with all of our meal selections. The exposed brick wall w/the vintage cameras hanging off of it adds to its nice and cozy atmosphere. Portion sizes are just right. Highly recommend the black linguine and farfalle dishes!

    You have to try it

    It's such a family atmosphere. You have to try the garden in summer and the bar on Fridays in winter, with DJ and huge choice of wine.. A great place in UES!

    Best backyard dining atmosphere

    Wish more restaurants had backyard dining like this one. Gonna miss it as weather turns cool.. Food was good. Pasta al-dente as it rarely is in most local places. Service very attentive. Will probably eat there often this winter and long for the wonderful backyard dining.

    Best UES Dinner Date Spot

    The food is outstanding...I rarely order pasta when I go out to eat, but, I can't contain myself when I eat at Vespa...The homemade pasta is unbeatable. Bring a date and eat outside during the Fall and you're sure to seal the deal! I have friends from all over the city coming to the UES just to eat at Vespa and I have not heard a complaint yet.

    One of my favorites

    We have eaten at Vespa more often than at any other restaurant in NYC. Each time, the food has been wonderful. The fritto misto is out of this world, the gnocchi lighter than air. I love the small plates and often make a dinner out of a couple of them. Vespa is a very comfortable place to eat - whether your seated inside or in the garden. The only thing I haven't liked at Vespa is the DJ, who appears only occasionally (thank goodness)
