Our Story

va-bene-owners-jim-mary-kay-berarducciEmbracing Italian culture, owners Mary Kay and Jim Berarducci have crafted Va Bene Caffe — fresh Italian food prepared with quality ingredients, to be enjoyed in a casual, friendly atmosphere. Dine in, take away, or let us cater your next event.

All of our sauces, dressings, breads, gnocchi and our fabulous desserts are made on site from scratch. We use only select imported Italian products, including Prosciutto di Parma and San Daniella Prosciutto, as well as our choice olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and assorted cheeses.

With Va Bene Caffe, the Berarduccis have created a one of a kind experience — a caffe devoted to Italian dishes served with hospitality at an accessible price. Looking through the street-side glass windows, one discovers a lively, inviting backdrop, hinting at the fresh, smart cuisine within. Creative indoor and outdoor dining areas offer beautiful ambiance and unbeatable views.

Va Bene is pronounced vah-ben-neh and means “it goes well.” It is an Italian sentiment that Jim and Mary Kay took to heart when they opened Va Bene Caffe – where it always goes well!
