Old School Pizza – I've been going to V&T for many years and as long as they change NOTHING i will continue to make sure i continue to go there for a long time. Make sure you have enough people to eat all this food
Good pizza, usually. – I usually really like their pizza, but the last time the cheese was sparse and there were several dry air pockets in the tomato sauce baked crust. I only order delivery, which is timely, but I've also had some pasta that was pretty bland (baked ziti). Hopefully the sloppy pizza last time was just a fluke because it's usually quite good.
You Charge Extra for That??!!??!! – 20 minutes ago, I would have told you this was a great place to get a home cooked meal. I just called for delivery and was told that getting pasta underneath my chicken (not getting red sauce) would cost me extra. So placing my chicken on the pasta that I will get as apart of my meal and NOT putting red sauce on it will cost me extra??!! No, thanks. I just threw their menu away. There are too many great places in the city to deal with this level of ridiculousness.
If you?re looking for really great Italian on the UWS, go to Le Vela. It?s outstanding!
Italy in New York – V&T is an excellent Italian restaurant. The food is just the way it should be GREAT! I only have one complaint. The service. The staff doesn't deal too well with crowds. They become very overwhelmed and that's when the service that is otherwise very attentive becomes slim and rushed. Just a suggestion if you look in and see it is full wait until it has died down a bit the service will be what it should be. COMPLETE!
Best Pizza in NYC! – When I was attending Coulumbia, V & T was a weekly habit for me and my friends! The salad pizza is the best pizza I've had in NY, and we have the best pizza in America right here in NY! If you're not in the mood for pizza, try the Eggplant Parm...Mmmmmm! A really great place for friends and family...worth the trip uptown just to check it out!
The Gold Standard – As a full-blooded New Yorker (born in NYC, lived in Brooklyn, eaten just about everywhere), the experience of watching that ridiculously cheesy Pie gripping the round metal tray as it comes toward your table is like stumbling onto an oasis in the Sahara. The "experts" and the "guess what, I've been here ten minutes so now I am a New Yorker" seem to favor pizzas with the same charcoal taste as your Great Uncle's fireplace or the insulting decorative pie with small slices of Mozzarella, a dab of sauce and spices that more closely resembles a focaccia bread than a pizza. V & T is comfort food, it envelops your senses and makes you happy. If you want nuance and subtlety in your pizza then make it yourself or wait in line with other self-important palates. If I wanted soot with my pizza, I would have been a chimney sweeper.
It's OK - nothing too fantastic – Went here on recommendation. Pizza OK, nothing so spectacular. Try it if you want to or you can save your $$$ and go someplace else.
Best Pizza anywhere – V&T is what baby pizzas hope to be when they grow up. They sit and read about the exploits of a V&T pizza: its deliciousness; its flaky, tender crust; the perfection of the tomato sauce and cheese combinations; the supreme pepperoni. They pray to their Food Gods to make them into a good pizza like V&T's. Some baby pizzas get their wish. Others have to go to other restaurants and feel sad until they're eaten. Yeah, sometimes the service can be slow. If that's a problem, go to McDonald's and destroy your insides.
Plain pizza shouldn't be this plain – My cousin and I went there recently. We are from the boroughs, she from Queens and me from Bklyn. Her comment, which I think says it all "this tastes slightly better than stuff I would get at Shea Stadium".
Good food, horrible service – We only order delivery from V and T because the service is horrible. The pizza is delicious, very thin crust.
