Visiting after 2 years I have to say that their food has improved significantly! The mozzarella and tomato salad was delicious and fresh. Their pizza is also delicious. We got the pepperoni pizza and the sauce and bread was very fresh. We also ordered the Coletti burger and is was very tasty. The beef was juicy and delicious!

Came for lunch on July 4th because my boyfriend and I were looking for a spot to eat lunch at after watching Finding Dory at the Newport Mall (no shame). VB3 was pretty much completely empty except for one table dining inside. It was probably because everyone was at the beach or away for the weekend, so I'm not sure... More

All of the food was great. The chef has a great menu with choices to fit the entire group. We had Red Snapper, soft she'll crab, mussels, pizza, salads, and white sangria. It can be a bar scene place for late night. But for us older folk, the food and service is the draw. The chef came out to show... More

We ordered takeout from here because we were too tired to go out and it was right around the corner from out hotel. The food was decent and they had just about every pizza condiment you could think of in packets! We'd order again!

I always get take out so I cant speak for the service in the restaurant, however, the food is really good and the prices are reasonable. I'd recommend it.

The food was decent, not exceptional. The wait staff was bored since there were very few patrons at this time and were singing and joking around which was a bit distracting since I was tired and just wanted a nice quiet meal

I absolutely love the music, ambiance and food at this place.. It's good for the people living around this place... Sometimes when you don't feel like going to the City, this place offers a nice retreat... A bottle of beer, nice Pizza or Pasta - I love Pastas here... Absolutely delicious... :-)

Description
Chef Michael Colletti began his culinary journey at a young age growing up watching his grandparents and father, who migrated from Sicily, preparing the family recipes with home grown ingredients such as figs, cardoons and persimmons. This early influence and curiosity led him into the family business - where it all started with dough - when he studied bagel-making at his father's side and then learned the ropes at his cousins' pizzeria, Villa Borghese. The discovery of his natural palate and affinity for cooking led him to attend the Culinary Education Center in Asbury Park, NJ. Degree in hand, he soon worked alongside iconic New York chefs Sirio Maccioni of the world renowned Le Cirque, as well as Drew Nieporent and Michael Bao at Mai House. During Chef Colletti's tenure as Chef de Cuisine at Mai House, the restaurant was awarded two stars by Frank Bruni of The New York Times, and named among the Top 10 Best Restaurants in New York City by The New York Times. He spent more than two years at Mai House; during that time Chef Colletti traveled throughout Vietnam for several months to study the local food and culture, and was chosen to guest chef at the 5-Star Renaissance Hotel in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After five years in New York, he decided to join friend and celebrity chef Spike Mendelsohn in Washington D.C. At the Sunnyside Group. There he would play a vital role in the conceptualization of Chef Mendelsohn's restaurant, Good Stuff Eatery, located in Capitol Hill. With the national success of Good Stuff Eatery, Chef Colletti was invited to participate in Food Network's 2009 Food & Wine Festival "Rachel Ray Burger Bash", in both Miami and New York, where he earned back-to-back victories for his creation of the "Colletti Smokehouse Burger". Food Network then invited Chef Mendelsohn and Chef Colletti to compete in an episode of Iron Chef America, where they would "Battle Prosciutto" versus world famous Chef Michael Symon in an episode that aired in March 2010. Chef Colletti was then given responsibility for opening and overseeing operations at the second Spike Mendelsohn venture, We, The Pizza, also in Capitol Hill. We, the Pizza became an instant sensation, and within three months of opening was voted one of the "Top 50 Best Pizzerias in America" by USA TODAY
