I've been coming here for 25 years and always enjoy my meal. Its not gourmet, but it is tasty Italian in downtown Silver Spring. For the family can often get away for $50 or 60 which seems very reasonable in this day and age - and that's with wine. Less if you stuck to water or soft drinks. I like... More

Overall I would say our experience was okay and the food was decent for the price. We ordered ravioli, chicken Parmesan and a pizza and there was nothing wrong with the food, but nothing about the meal was above average either.

Friends at our local pub kept asking "Have you been to Vicino's yet?" So, finally, I took my wife to Vicino's last Friday night (our Friday night date). After finishing my meal (and the portions are fair size), all I could think about was all the great home cooked Italian food I ate at my friends' houses as a boy;... More

At about 1pm on a weekday, I dropped in to Vicino's for lunch. The place was empty at first. After a minute or two without being able to find anyone, I left. But then as I was pulling away into traffic, I saw a waiter come to the window. When I returned, I had the place totally to myself. An... More

This is a quaint Italian restaurant, and I had a nice waiter. However, the waiter was not on the ball. I had to ask for bread and I didn't find a shaker of grated cheese on my table. The waiter didn't offer any grated cheese either. I expected the waiter to stop by my table and ask if I needed... More

It's not a beautiful restaurant, but we think they have some of the best, reasonably priced Italian food. Their eggplant parmigana is wonderful and every time my husband gets a veal chop that is out of this world.

We have been dining here on-and-off for several years, and have never had a bad, or even mediocre meal. The food is simple and outstanding, and the prices are very reasonable. The staff works hard to please, and John, the owner, is almost always on hand to say hello. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for good Italian food.

We've been to Vicino's many times, but I've never reviewed it. We stopped by the other day near the end of a restaurant crawl in our town. it was empty by then, but had been jammed earlier. We were full already, so all we ordered was some sauteeed mushrooms to go. We got a big container filled with sauteed mushrooms... More

Yes, decor is passe, but John the owner makes everyone welcome. I love and always order the seafood platter with red sauce. Companions and family have loved the osso bucco, the clams wirh white sauce and the whole fish.

I love this place. The Italian dishes are all solid and the atmosphere isn't great but the people are fantastic every time. I have been a regular for almost 10 years since the first time I walked in. They welcome everyone who comes in personally, never rush you and are generous. If we order full entrees they always seem to... More
