Vaccaro's Trattoria Ratings and Reviews

This restaurant serves wonderfully delicious food and I would definitely recommend eating here if you have plenty of time on your hands. The waitress was very funny and charming so I would hate to lay the blame for slow service on her, as I believe it lies with kitchen staff. I can appreciate they are making a fine dining meal, so I would expect slower service than a fast food restaurant, however this was exceptionally slow. We ended up drinking a whole bottle of wine before our appetizer arrived, which was only bruchetta...four slices of bread with three different types of topping to assemble ourselves. The salad course and main followed in equally slow order. It's a real shame, if they could speed up the delivery of food this restaurant would go on my top list of favorites.

Very good! Service was wonderful from the moment we walked in to when we left. Food was delicious and plentiful and the complimentary bread was amazing (you can tell its completely homemade). Really, the evening here was excellent and we have no complaints whatsoever. I do have to say that the Nutella chocolate lava cake dessert was the best I've ever had! Will definitely come back!

The lobster pasta was phenomenal. We liked it with both with oil and with Alfredo. The calamari would have been great except the peppers, olives, and sauce were overbearing. The hostess was fantastic and incredibly friendly. The server was slow. The wedding soup was above average.

Wedding soup with no mini meatballs, at all?
Chicken parm an inch thick (not pounded .. no extra effort)
Boxed rigatoni with chicken parm ... should be spag or other noodle
Person busing tables, filling water glasses was dirty (her uniform) .. very unappetizing
Not a place for foodies, or discriminating Italians.

We just moved to the Akron area from Dayton, Ohio and found this nice place to relax and enjoy a good meal. The wait staff was very attentive and the service was excellent. We went on a weeknight and it was not too busy but I would guess a weekend evening would probably be a bit more crowded. The food presentation was excellent and we were personally presented an after-dinner drink by the owner! We look forward to making this a regular stop on our culinary trail!

Very nice touch how the owner visits each table during their meal and provides and after dinner drink for those celebrating a special occasion. Besides the desert menu needs to be tested on a return visit as we were too full to sample.

Small dining area but well presented. Fantastic service with nice suggestions regarding wine. Food was above average and everyone (7 of us) enjoyed our meals. This is a nicer Italian restaurant but not overpriced.

We enjoyed our meal. Getting there was a bit challenging: there is no menu on their website so you cannot know what they offer. The primary dish I wanted (which had been mentioned in a recent newspaper article about them) was no longer offered. When I called for a reservation (as recommended on the website), I got a voicemail that said they were all full for Valentine's Day -- this was on July 21!

Love the wine discount on Monday. Bad server, slow, dirty plates left on table, out of the wine we ordered, waited 30 minutes for check. Otherwise enjoyable. I look forward to trying it again with a different server I hope.

New chef under owner Rafael has taken Vaccaro's back to its Italian roots. One of the best meals I have had in recent memory. From the home made meatballs, sausage, pasta, pomodoro and aglio olio sauces to the excellent and reasonably priced Italian wine, it was all first class. This is what Vaccaro's is supposed to be....the freshest and best Italian in the area.

My husband ordered the halibut because the last time we came he ordered the sea bass and it was delicious! The halibut was extremely over cooked and dry. It was very disappointing. I ordered the scallops and they were pretty good, but nothing to get excited over.
Ken and I went for our anniversary. Very elegant dining room. Very quiet at first as we were one of 3 tables. The room quickly filled to capacity. Food was excellent, service was good and the owner came over and greeted everyone at their table. He was very friendly and we were given complimentary homemade bailey's and the best tiramisu over a chocolate brownie for dessert. We will definitely go there again!
Very disappointing experience
We have dined here before and came for a special family occasion. We had to wait 25 minutes past our reservation to be seated. Our server was extremely slow and forgetful. The reason given for all of the problems was that there was a graduation party of 30 in another part of the restaurant and they were ordering off the menu. When our dinner finally arrived almost 2 hours after our arrival, I asked for everything to be boxed to go. If they cannot plan seating and handle large groups, then maybe they should rethink their planning. I understand that large groups change the normal routines but the rest of the customers should not have to suffer for their lack of planning. We were offered a gift card to make up for the inconvenience but we turned it down because I have no intention in returning to patronize this establishment.
Great Birthday get together with friends
Fabulous get together with group of 12 friends to celebrate my birthday. The menu had a wonderful variety. The lobster pasta and pistachio crusted veal tenderloin were favorites. We will definitely go to Vaccaro's again.

What should of been a nice dinner for my daughter and I, had us feeling like we didn't belong. The waiter looked down his nose at me because I ordered soda. He seemed bothered he had to wait on us. He read through the specials explaining some of them as if we were dim witted. Ten minutes went by before he brought my drink refill and it was watered down. Once our food came my daughter asked if we could leave. We ate most of our dinner and she took her pizza home. She ended up eating the pizza in the car because she felt we weren't worthy enough to be there. We were paying the same as everyone else in the restaurant so the need to have us feel that way was unnecessary. Would I recommend your restaurant to anyone??? Sure if they wanted to drink wine and don't order soda. I usually have a glass of wine but since we were on our way home from Cleveland I did not want to.
Our reservation was for 1:15 pm and they were already out of the veal dish. The service was excellent. the chicken in the chicken parm was excellent but the rigatoni was dry since it needed more sauce (skimpy on sauce). a different noodle would have been better. others at our table loved the linguine with clams and lasagna.
