Vaccaro's is a great place for weeknight dinners in Akron – Great place to take clients because it is always buzzing with the right kind of people. Shows Akron in a nice light when entertaining out-of-town clients.
wonderful food, great service, nice atmosphere – stopped at this place on my way through ohio on a road trip. i thought it was wonderful-all of our food was fresh and really delicious. i highly recommend the bolognese sauce-it was seriously fantastic-and they know how to cook vegetables very well, which certainly not every restaurant does. they only had half a glass of the wine i ordered, so they gave me that and then another 3/4 of a glass of an even nicer wine for free-a lovely surprise.
if you're passing through, or live in akron, i definitely recommend this place. it is just a great, well-run little family establishment.
Great weeknight dinner meeting spot – My boss and I were entertaining two gentlemen from a different company arriving from out of town. Arriving at 5:30 on a Tuesday evening found the restaurant quite and expecting customers. Owner was running around checking on waitstaff and even restroom cleanliness. Greeted upon arrival by hostess I told her about our 6:30 reservation. I was asked if I wanted to sit at the bar. I wasn't at the bar 2 minutes when I was provided a draft beer in an authentic glass (Bass ale). My boss arrived 5 minutes later, he was served, and then the last two arrived. They too got their drinks and we asked to be seated. We were promptly moved to a nice table and our bar bill transfered with a nod. Dinner was super. Calamari appet was perfectly presented, sized, and enjoyable. Parm cheese with olive oil and balsamic was prepared for dipping a bread was provided. We were able to take our time and talk before, during, and after with NO RUSH. Food orders were Halibut, Osso Bucco, Gnocchi (not offered on menu at the time but had it when asked), and Duck as a special. All arrived hot, nicely portioned, and superbly presented. Waitstaff was attentive at all times. Dessert was cappuccino, coffee, sambuca (both white and black), and donuts with berries and tiramisu. We left there at 9 pm having enjoyed a great meal, made nice with the out of town visitors, and happy for the experience. If you are looking for that type of evening, I strongly suggest this restaurant. I haven't been on a weedend and in a hurry so cannot comment.
Best Italian! – So flower person had one bad experience - we all do. This is a great place and the food is great! Martini menu is wonderful and they have a lot of wines by the glass. Daily specials and great service. The food is some of the best authentic Italian we have ever had. Worth the drive where ever you live!
not as expected – My husband and I visited this restaurant when we first moved to Akron, OH. Even though we had made reservations, we were told they could not honor our seating time until 45 minutes later unless we sat outside. We were told the outside seating would be smokefree, but then smokers were seated next to us almost immediately. I was brought the incorrect dinner. We had to walk inside to hunt down the server to inform him of this mistake. He immediately argued that I had ordered the dinner he had served (it was a meat dish, and I'm vegetarian!) We will never return to this restaurant.
