“While visiting Duluth, we were looking for a modern, clean, comfortable, hip place to carbo-load and relax the day before Grandma’s marathon. What a hit that we happened upon (Thanks YELP!) for the perfect atmosphere, food and service. All were great! Portions were a little large, but prices were exceptionally fair and it was delicious.”
– Rod J.
“My husband and I were pleasantly surprised by your Italian cuisine – we were just walking by last Sunday and wanted a place to eat by the Lake – we had no idea what to expect – and thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance, food, service, and wine, as well as the view of the lake! Thank you for bringing a unique dining experience to the lakeshore! We’ll definitely be back! ”
– Mary & Jim K.
“Once again, a great time (we are there at least once a week). Food is perfect. Keep up whatever you are doing with servers. You have one of the few places in Duluth that has anything that comes close to real customer service.”
– Frank O.
“Happy New Year! We had a wonderful evening at Va Bene on New Year’s Eve! The food and service were just perfect! Everything was delicious…I especially liked the sea scallops. I’m glad our friends, Kirsten and Reed, asked us to join them that night. We were all stuffed by the time we left :) Thanks again for the lovely evening”
– Eric and Shelley C.
“After a few months here and many MANY tries at finding a good place to eat (and a million bad reviews written)… we found Va Bene. THANK YOU!!! We had dinner there last night and were extremely pleased from start to finish. The food was absolutely delicious, our waitress was outstanding and extremely knowledgeable of the food and wine. I told her I liked fruity and smooth wines, she brought me the most delicious wine I have ever tasted. We will definitely be back as we have claimed Va Bene as “our spot” now.”
– Crystal & Chris
“We would recommend the New Year’s dinner to everyone, it was excellent food, wine and service! We thought our Valentine’s evening at Va Bene last year couldn’t be surpassed, however; we were equally impressed. Thanks for the great experience!”
– George & Liz G.
“The evening was wonderful and the food was superb. We are still taking about it! We would recommend spending New Year’s Eve at your restaurant to anyone. We have told many people how great it was. We have been regular patrons since you opened and are glad you are doing well. Keep up the great work!”
– Julie P.
“We had a great meal, and you are to thank. You have certainly upped the ante for travel hockey dining. My daughter is still talking about the meatballs, and with a name like “Altobelli” in my family tree, we know more than a little about meatballs. Not only was the food fabulous, but the service was delightful. The extra effort was noted.”
