We (all 4 of us) felt that the server was just thrown out to us, lacked experience. I somewhat blame management for not helping him , if indeed he was new. One person in our party never did receive his soup. My salad came with no dressing, and one of us ordered a gin and tonic in a tall glass. The GT came in a short glass and were told the bar ran out of tall glasses. But, our water was served in tall glasses. Eggplant fries were brought to our table that we didn’t order. It was one mistake after another. The waiter never followed up to see if we needed anything. Unfortunately, we were all in dismay the entire evening.

I ordered the cavatelli pomodoro. My family is from Italy and I’m very familiar w left over sauce already on the pasta. My plate was just like that. Bowl was hot, pasta room temp w the sauce soaked in. No attempt was made to disguise w extra sauce on top. Manager did make it right and took it away and replaced it w lasagna which was very good. My companion had already fin’d his meal when I got mine. The attempt to pass off inferior food initially is wrong. There are other restaurants that don’t have to be caught serving an inferior meal that I prefer to frequent.

Owner and chef Raphael makes certain everyone that walks into his family restaurant is brought into his family. The menu has wonderfully changed for the season, yet I can always get one of my favorite homemade pastas. There is courteous and caring service, and the food is authentically Italian—not just another restaurant in the Akron is the reason to not have to drive to Cleveland for great food—-we already have it here!

My husband and I went to dinner on New Year's Eve. Our server was very nice. However, the food was not great. My salmon was very dry and his beef was just okay. I think for the price of the dinner, it should have been a little better quality. It wasn't so crowded that the food should have been so so. There was a lot going on around us so it was slightly distracting when trying to have a conversation. Thank you, Rebecca Harrell

I was actually looking forward to trying Vaccaro's. I was disappointed in the flavor of the food and the cost compared to the portion. The service was not good. I had asked for additional hot water for tea and never received it, but the person next to me did. They brought our bill and several people in our party wanted dessert, but the server hadn't asked about dessert, so that took another 1/2 hour. We arrived at 11:45 and were not able to leave until 1:30 due to poor service.

We frequent Vaccaro’s routinely, and have never been disappointed. This last time we celebrated a birthday (of course they sang). We started with calamari and a bottle of Pinot Noir; they have a notable wine selection. Then the three of us enjoyed the Chilean sea bass, eggplant involving and the build-your-own pasta. Everything was delicious. Our server, Amy, was spectacular as usual - knowledgeable, engaging and attentive. Raphael Vaccaro stopped by to say hello. We will certainly continue patronizing Vaccaro’s.

Ordered wine by the glass. Bottle had to have bee opened earlier that week and was already bad. Told the waiter and he said "sorry" and didn't offer to make it right. 26 dollars for two glasses of wine we did not drink.

Waiter never told us the special.

No bread was offered until we asked.

Wedding soup had no meatballs.

Restaurant has been inconsistent the last few years. Decided to give it one more chance.

They failed and we will not be returning.

We went for the crab legs. I was a little disappointed with them. Usually the quality of the food is outstanding but this one fell short. The wine that was selected for us exceeded our expectations.

As always, Vacarro's Trattoria comes through. Delicious food. Good ambiance. Casual yet refined. Amy and the entire staff are attentive to all our needs. My wife and I are regulars and look forward every week to dining here.
