    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)

    New Age Italian

    All establishments can have their off days with regards to service, food, and even atmosphere. Not making this a habit is what will separate the greats from the average to the unbearable. I will assume that any bad review of VESPA is one of those rare off days. Vespa is in the heart of the upper east side where many of NYC's youth engage in drinking and bar hopping. Vespa fits right in to that aspect of the city's nightlife while also adding a sense of class unseen from the street. On many a night Vespa will have a DJ (which not one person mentioned so makes me wonder if they even went into the restaurant) to counter that is of course the beautiful courtyard in the back which is constantly being upgraded to enhance the atmosphere. (Check out the courtyard during the holidays to understand) The food is very selective. Almost every dish is superb. The menu changes with the seasons so your favorite dish might be there in the winter as apposed to the summer. The service is young and respectful but like any staff could always be in need of improvement. To say Vespa is the top Italian restraint in Manhattan would be pushing it. But this is only do to being around barely 2 years. What I will say is that in do time and experience of this new age Italian establishment,
