Certainly the meal was tasty. I opted for the large salad plate and it was extremely small for 14 dollars. My husband got the pasta with salmon for 16 dollars. Again very tasty but very small. If they offer bread and olive oil before the meal at least leave a couple pieces bread to fill up on not just one each!!!

We went there on a business trip so pleased to come across this small restaurant. We were seated at a table overlooking the pier and Lake Superior. The entrees were excellent and to order also the young waiter was very informative, he was spectacular!!

There is so much to choose from at Va Bene and their servers and very kind and accommodating. I had Fruit of the Sea with gluten free pasta and my friend had the chicken alfredo. Both delicious. We didn’t have room for dessert but they looked pretty delicious as well!

Finally tried Va Bene while in town and very glad we did! Food was amazing and service was attentive. Bruschetta was a great starter and Mahi Mahi was delicious.

We ordered to go and the food was ready very quickly. We had the burrata appetizer and split a large chicken Caesar salad. We were a little disappointed with the salad- there didn’t seem to be enough chicken or large enough to split. But all in all, a good meal and kept very well on our drive home.
