There wasn't anything significantly wrong with any of our dishes, it's just that for the price (entrees without sides) in the $27-$33 range, one expects more. Larger portions, better presentation (my salmon was served skin side up), nicer dining room, better service. We were also told it was slow due to a large party in another room. This was our... More

There are two parts to this restaurant one side is romantic with dimmed lights,white linen and cute chairs the other side is bright with white linen. We unfortunately got the bright side. We enjoyed the bruschetta board which was very tasty, we also had pizza and lasagna- all the food was good. The lasagna was different but very good. Our... More

We had a family dinner last night at Vaccaro's Trattoria and we loved it! The food, the service and the atmosphere were all excellent! I had the best Gnocchi with pomodoro sauce that I have ever tasted. It was better than my mother-in-law's and my grandmother's gnocchi , and they both were born in Italy! My wife and daughter had...

4 couples at Vaccaros on a Saturday night at 7 pm - there was an event/party on one half of the restaurant and only a handful of folks on the other; the waiter apologized early, saying service would be slow. It was, however we were in no hurry. Unfortunately, the food was underwhelming vs. the cost. We might give it... More

First time at this restaurant. From the moment we walks in, we felt as if we were at my grandma's house. Hostess was friendly and smiling. Once seated our sever immediately introduced himself and recommended wine and food options. A few minutes later the owner stopped by and pulled up a chair. He made us feel like family. Once we...

What makes a great Italian restaurant? Everything house-made, absolutely fresh ingredients, a cozy setting with warm service and that wonderful "you're cooking for me like I was family" feel..am I right? Well, Vaccaro has it seriously mastered. My husband and I went for pizza last night and were totally blown away by the terrific food, the lovely space, the polished... More

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... More

Vaccaro's Tratoria is truly the best authentic local Italian Restaurant in Summit County, Ohio! My wife and I had lunch last week, and the food service and atmosphere were truly excellent. Don't miss their homemade gnocchi! My wife is a first generation Italian-American, who I consider the best cook in the Akron area, and she said her pasta was the... More
