I recently ate here and was shocked at the quality of the food. Its difficult sometimes to fine a good dairy restaurant. My friends and I wanted to have a really nice dinner - and don't get me wrong, we enjoyed each others company

I see all these bad reviews and I wonder.
I've been eating there for years and have never had a bad meal nor have I ever gotten my nose out of joint because a waiter seemed cold or imperious. I've eaten in the best restaurants in the world

I understand that one must pay a little more for kosher food, but I have never understood why kosher has to mean simple and underseasoned. I paid well over $20 for something that seemed like macaroni and cheese. I pray for the day when there will be a decent priced or delicious dairy kosher restaurant. The service and atmosphere was nice here, but I am not sure that is enough to draw me back.

I went with a friend of mine who eats only Kosher food. Being an Italian lover, this place seemed like a great choice for us. We made a dinner reservation and I arrived a few minutes beforehand. The head waiter asked me to check my coat

I had gone to Va Bene with a party of seven. It was my cousin's birthday and one of them is Kosher. The restaurant we were planning on attending was closed for a private party, so we decided to go to Va Bene. \r

They have wonderful food and the dishes are good sized and delicious- but the staff is snobby and they tend to rush you out. Also, look at you like you're scum if you come in without a reservation- even though they have the room!
