I made the mistake of ordering fried calamari and shrimp, expecting it to be some kind of off-beat Italian entree. It turned out to be nothing but the kind of fried calamari you get as an appetizer for $10, with a couple of shrimp thrown in. Plus, the wines are way over priced. A half-bottle of chardonnay was $35. There are many other Italian restaurants in the neighborhood that are a much better deal. The place is beautiful (the main reason we decided to try it) but beauty is only skin deep.

I passed by this restaurant with my boyfriend and we decided to give it a try. The food was excellent and the service was wonderful...until dessert time. We were stuffed beyond belief from the delicious food when the waiter came over with a platter of dessert - freshly cut slices of cake, fruit, etc. and offers us a dessert from the platter. I choose the bowl of fruit and reach to grab it off the platter when he tells me "no, this is only for show, let me get you a fresh cup." He comes back to our table with a fresh cup of fruit (literally one cup's worth) and whipped cream on the side. When he brought over the platter of dessert, it made me think that anything on the tray is free/sample. What he should've done was asked how the meal was and ask if we want dessert or want to see the dessert menu, not offer you dessert making you think you were getting something free. The best part, this one cup's worth of fruit cost $10...seriously?

"cash only" has been revoked for 2 yrs now. That alone makes a difference for me. The staff was very attentive. The menu has good variety as it should. All dishes got great reviews for taste and presentation. Yes the prices aren't cheap but really, how many good italian restaurants in ny are!

12 noodles in my Rigatoni Siciliana for $21.50; are you kidding me?? If I wasn't with a client, I would have said something but I will never go back there.

Good food, but very expensive and only CASH. Will recommend if you dont mind spending 150 dollars for a dinner for two and willing to pay it in CASH.

Our family has enjoyed Vico for the past 3 years. Every meal has been delicious and our kids (10, 13 and 15) are more excited about dining at Vico's than anywhere else in the City. Yes, the prices are high, but the quality and love in the food and service makes it worthwhile.
