We celebrated Christmas with family. Everything was perfect. All entrees tasted wonderful from pizza, spaghetti to the grouper special. Our waiter was outstanding. He was helpful and respectful of our conversation and celebration. We have eaten here before and will definitely return!

Great Restaurant and happy it is open for lunch. There are not many dining options in Richfield for a business lunch so this was a nice find. Located immediately off high way in small strip. Service is excellent and food is fabulous. Homemade pasta and sauces are incredible which makes it hard to decide which to order. Restaurant decor and ambience also makes for a romantic dinner as well as a place for friends and family to dine.

Where do I Begin? Bland food, lousy service, dated decor. Our waiter spilled a glass of water on our table. Of the five meals, he brought two together, and two five minutes later, and the last was not even served before everyone else was done. Food mediocre at best. Stay away.

This is not my 1st time here. As expected, the food was fantastic. My date was very impressed by the ambiance, variety and the plate presentation. Chef Jeffrey is worth his weight in gold. Now my most favorite restaurant. Keep up the good work

We hadn't been to Vaccaro's for several years, never really liking how spicey their Italian recipes were. HOWEVER, this time around the dinner was truly excellent and now gives us a good reason to go again in the near future. The grilled scallops with squid ink spaghetti, grilled red peppers and green beans was delicious! I loved the unique Grilled Caesar Salad also. Everything was perfect.

Our food was good, but not great. My mother in law and uncle got the scallops. The presentation was pretty, however, they got 3/4 scallops for 33$. I had the veal which was good and my husband got the linguine with clams and he loved it. The pasta is made daily which we learned because the chef and owner came around to the tables asking how our dinner was and how could improve. I thought that was pretty awesome. Dinner was slow to come out and they seemed understaffed tonight.

We had not been there in quite a while and forgot how wonderful the food and service is.
Will definitely keep it on our "go to" list. Our waitress was cordial and attentive. We chose 2 of the specials based on her recommendation and they were great.

The food was delicious, and they have a plentiful wine list and great service. It was a relaxing and no -rush dining experience much like in Italy. The owner was going from table to table checking on guests. All-in all a really nice dining experience. We will definitely be back.

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!
