We've eaten here several times over the years. I've always felt they had the best food in Newark, After this last visit, I no longer feel that way. I didn't want to believe the recent reviews, but our meal was really not that great. First,...More

EXCELLENT: Food, Service, friendly atmosphere. Took group of 43 Seniors to lunch and had nothing but outstanding words of compliments from the whole group. Appetizers, Main Course and Desserts outstanding. Would highly recommend it to anyone going to the city.

Very pleasant place with large portions of good food. Old world feel. Small but quaint. Very good sangria! Small parking lot on the side.

Truly unique, wonderful cuisine, very good service, not-so-good decor. Generous portions with lots of lovely traditional extras (the bread is to die for), and very attentive staff. Reasonable prices. However, hard to find a quiet table that's not in the way of something else.

Casa Vasca is a small restaurant in the Ironbound Section of Newark. Small but with Big Flavor! The food and drinks are all great. It's a nice spot to dine at with your special someone or a small group. Enjoy!
