This is a tremendous place. Fresh, delicious food in a comfortable, casual and welcoming space. We loved the Greek meatballs as an appetizer. For entrees, the moussaka was among the best we've had, and the lamb chops and pork chops were outstanding. Greek salad also delicious, but we had more than we needed because it also came with most of... More

Dinner is served here 3pm to 10pm, lunch 1130am to 3pm. We loved the assorted dips and grilled pita and french breads at $14.95. Very fresh and homemade, Hummus, Taramosalata, Tazatziki, Skordalia,Pikitia and Melitzanosalata . These dips were some of the best in Bergen County. The county and surrounding areas have a lot of Greek Tavernas. The Greek salads are... More

Excellent food and service. We eat here as often as we can considering we have many friends out of this area. The bronzini (I order it whole) is the best anywhere and ,my husband and our friends who dine with us, all love the food. Nice storefront atmosphere and even when busy we can actually hear each other speak (which... More

Excellent authentic Greek cuisine. Lunch special brought me back to yaya's house. Authentic and welcoming. Extra touch of grilled pita and bread appreciated. Second time visited, not disappointed either time.

I went with my mom in a rainy Friday night; the dining room is clean and inviting. I had the spanakopita; it was delicious - fresh spinach, not overloaded with cheese or spices, and the philo in perfect proportion. The Greek salad that comes with was very crisp, and not overwhelmed by the dressing - very well balanced. Mom had... More

A small neighborhood BYO, Vasili's is a very authentic greek retaurant with very good food in a storefront setting. There is plenty of parking behind the restaurant but easy to miss as you need to go through the CVS parking lot. The food is nicely prepared and very tasty althoughthe fish is a little pricey, everything else is quite reasonable.

I was here autumn of 2012 with my mother, my moms best friend and her husband. They live in Teaneck and visit Visili's regularly. I love greek food and therefor have become a little critical. Only the best quality and spices deserve 5 stars to me. Visili's food really made me happy! Can't wait to go back there one day

Who says great food can't be found in the shadows of the "big city?" Vasili's is great Greek food just outside NYC. Tasty Greek cuisine at reasonable prices. The fish is always fresh and the salads never disappoint. Have eaten here numerous times and always enjoy going back!

We were a group of 18 getting together for an evening of food and "catching up" with old friends. It was my first time dining at Vasili's Taverna and although it was a Saturday night and we were a very large group for a small restaurant, we all enjoyed the food and service. The appetizers were fresh and the pita,... More

I have been a customer for years at this family owned Greek restaurant. Mother, father and college student son always involved. Specialty is fresh seafood which is as good as I have enjoyed on the island of Crete. Cannot give a better recommendation for a local quality establishment.
