    My meal in Vespa has been a great experience. So... The other day I ate at Vespa in NY. I thought Vespa to be tasteful all the way up, from style through the appearance. What a stress-free and satisfied mealEveryone at the restaurant was so awesome!The space is modern and pretty. The vibe was excellent. The order came out amazingly quickly. Definitely one of my gripes had been the preso wasn't that remarkable. The look was fine and yet didn't offer you that "omg" factor. Even though no genuine complaints. Also was to go to a NYC dining place with out excessive demeanor. We will be back soon.

    "My friend and I came here for dinner to try one of the Italian pasta. We're waited more than an hour for a simple pasta dish and when we started to complain how long we've been waiting for it, they quickly served us with the wrong pastas. The waiter also forgot to fill our glasses and wine and deliberately left us the whole time. We were chasing everything from ordering to paying our bill. This restaurant is definitely a "no,no" for me...!"
