Food mediocre, decor OK, service rude. It's been years since I've eaten here and after last night's experience, I won't come back. I felt the owners were very unfriendly, haggared and not the least bit hospitable. They kept trying to up-sell every item on their menu, even after it was clear our table wasn't interested. We finished at 8:30 and even though there weren't people waiting to be seated and other tables were still dining, I felt they were trying to push us out the door. I can appreciate that the restaurant business is tough but if the owners had been friendly, I would consider coming back. However, I will not. Owner attitude is just as important as the food.

I've been a customer of Il Vicolo for the past 10 or 12 years, and have always had excellent meals and service. The restaurant is tucked into the side of an unassuming strip mall, and you might just pass it by if you didn't know it was there. That would be a mistake! The food at Il Vicolo is consistency delicious, and the owners Benny & Jimmy are polite, professional, and attentive to their clientele. Bring you own wine of beer, and it will be chilled, opened, and poured by the staff, who are always on top of their game. During the week they have a 3-course Fixed Price menu (appetizer, entree, and dessert), with some very nice choices. The Penne Tomato-Basil Pasta, and the Eggplant Rollatine are two of my favorite appetizers. The Chicken Francese is the best I've ever had. There's also a specials menu with a rotation of excellent dishes at reasonable prices. The seafood dishes are always good. The desserts are tasty. I love the coconut crusted pineapple over ice cream.
We cater a lot of our Holiday Dinners from Il Vicolo. The catering prices are very reasonable, and the food is the same quality as when you dine at the restaurant. They're open for lunch and dinner. Stop by once, and you're likely to make it one of your regular stops.

The ambiance of this restaurant is very nice. It's very cozy and welcoming. The staff is extremely nice and prices are reasonable, especially lunches which are served at a special price. The food is very good and there are a lot of choices offered. Overall I had a great experience here and I recommend this restaurant for anyone who wants a nice Italian dinner.

ll Vicolo is a very unique restaurant. My daughter went there recently for a Bat Mitzvah party. She really enjoyed it. She said that the service was wonderful. She and her friends had a great time. They really enjoyed the Italian food. The children got to have a great time because of the music, food, and open space to have fun with each other. The outside makes it look very, run-down, but it is not.
