Heard the restaurant was closing soon and thought to see what the hype was all about. Bread and butter arrived cold. House salad was average with minimal dressing. Food arrived way too hot to eat, and with little to no seasoning. Portion size was good...More

Vescio's is an old restaurant that has been in business for 50 plus years. The food and service is traditional and reliable and overall good in quality. A good basic staple restaurant serving Italian fare.

We formerly lived in St Paul and my wife occasionally had lunch here. It is a small restaurant in Dinkytown by the University of Minnesota. When we visit the Twin Cities we try to have lunch here. We also purchase their sauce and sausage so...More

Nothing fancy, but a friendly place with good Italian staples. Prices are OK and portions decent. Entrees come with bread, but no salad. Good option for a bite to eat in Dinkytown.

This is a really good Italian American place to eat. This is not some Italian Fusion/Authentic Italian place. It's an old school Italian American restaurant that serves old school Italian American food. This is the kind of Italian food your grandparents/great grandparents ate years ago....More

This is genuine Italian food. The family comes from Italy and brings their family recipes with them. They have a pizza crust second to none. Relatively thin and amazingly crunchy and soft at the same time. (I'm getting hungry again just writing this). They have...More

The homemade pasta is amazing! We have went here numerous times. The spinach salad was great! It has a family feel to it. They are very nice to kids. If you are craving authentic Italian food, this is the place to go!
