Excellent location with great pizza! A group of us came to Pizzeria Vetri for a friend's birthday, and we had a delicious meal :) Between seven of us, we ordered 4 pizzas and 2 orders of the brussel sprouts, which seemed like a perfect amount for all of us to be very satisfied and full. Everyone's favorite seemed to be the Margherita (I hadn't tried that one so I can't personally speak to it), but I enjoyed all the different ones I had tried (Shroom, Crudo, & the Fennel). The brussel sprouts were placed on top of a thin layer of creamy type sauce that made it even more delicious. The ambiance is cozy and comfortable. The nice long tables are great for accommodating groups, and we had no problem with seating even though they didn't seem to take reservations at this location. The only downside to the evening was that we felt really rushed, even though the restaurant didn't seem busy or full enough to warrant it. The waiter kept checking on us and asking if we were going to order drinks multiple times, almost aggressively. And then also they brought out the dessert menu for us even when one person was still eating; when we said we weren't going to have dessert, they started taking away our plates almost right away. I can't tell if the waiter was just trying to be very attentive and considerate, because he wasn't being rude, but it was difficult to really enjoy the meal and it all seemed over very fast. Overall, still a good experience. Oh, one final plus is that they serve solid sparkling water. My bf commented that the sparkling water was "very bubbly", which always wins bonus points in our book!
It was my second time dining at this location and both times were pretty disappointing. Be mindful that it's located in a dark alleyway. Beware for the occasional panhandler waiting in the shadows, asking for money to get something to eat. The first time I dined here was for a friend's birthday (small group of 5) and the service was not the most pleasant! What a way to ruin someone's birthday (which the server knew). When I was invited the second time, I thought I'd give it another chance… The pizza isn't terrible, but I will say DO NOT get the calzones. Totally not worth it and I don't deem them worthy enough to be called a calzone! I'm sorry, but maybe I'm just spoiled from the good pizzas and calzones from NJ/NY?? I overheard the party next to us having their calzones replaced several times because they got it wrong. I should've known it was going to be a bad experience. Received my sausage calzone and it was a huge puff (really deceiving!). I cut it open and there were literally 4 small pieces of sausage and the rest was just air. (Refer to my pictures.) Are you kidding me?! I asked the server if it was supposed to be that way and she said, "it depends on how the dough rises." She immediately sent the manager over to talk to me. The manager was very nonchalant about the whole thing - "this is the chef's recipe" and "calzones come in different sizes due to the way the dough rises." I can accept that the dough will rise higher, but I still don't think it's acceptable to only put 4 pieces of sausage for the price tag you're putting on it. Fortunately, the manager offered to replace with something else or take it off our bill. Opted for the latter. 3 stars because the pizza is decent and the manager tried to make it up to us. Will I come back to Pizzeria Vetri? Nope. I can satisfy my pizza/calzone needs elsewhere. Would I recommend it to others? Most likely not. But thank you anyway to the manager!
Wow this place is a knockout! Excellent, fresh salad, superior pizza, cozy ambiance and friendly servers. We had a traditional pizza and one with eggplant which blew me away. The salad was so refreshing to start with - I usually don't waste valuable belly real estate on salad at a pizzeria but this was outstanding. They recommended the nutella pizza for dessert which was addictive. Our server told us the chef makes a regular pizza dough for the dessert pizza and then splits it in the middle like a pita and fills with Nutella and marshmallow so it's not like doubly doughy but crisp and To.die.for Would be my regular place if I lived here and Mark Vetri seems like a helluva guy all around so I'm happy to eat his food.
