    Our first night of dining out since the Covid restrictions eased and it was very memorable. The food was as delicious as ever...amazing beef cheeks. The service was great, but respectful of the times we are living through. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We were seated in the back room which doesn’t have the ambiance of the front section, but again I understand the tough times for restauranteurs and their need to serve diners safely. A wonderful family business.

    We had a great meal, great service but a little noisy. I have been at lunchtime before when it is less noisy. Service was helpful. Wish I could have read what the night's specials were rather than the waiter having to remember them and us then having to remember them.

    We were welcomed by the longtime front of house as if we were good friends and shown to our table. Our entre was tasty and each of our mains was delicious; my long gnocci fell apart when I cut it and the sauce was delicious. A very pleasant experience for Valentines Day.

    The casual staff were friendly but very under experienced. We were seated in a back room with no atmosphere with relatives of the owners who’s children were roaming around the room sitting on spare tables eating their pasta. The parents didn’t seem to mind but very disrespectful to fellow diners. The food was delicious but presentation could be improved.

    Was very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this place. We just wanted a quick meal before a function so we only had mains. I had the beef cheeks and my wife had the baked barramundi and we both thought they were truely excellent dishes. The wines were also very nice, and overall given the quality of the food I was very happy with the prices. Will definitely be going back.

    front table by the door was uncomfortable. Very cold night and windy spot. Service warm and friendly, food, wonderful. A little noisy as it was jam packed and a function upstairs with many people passing through the main doors. Unfortunately we were very cold and caught in a wind tunnel.

About the restaurant

An Italian Affair It’s a family affair at Vasko Restaurant in Ivanhoe. Vasko Dzanovski and his family bring passion and craft to the plate in this intimate Italian restaurant. Vasko Restaurant serves lunch and dinner in an inviting, stay-awhile atmosphere that lures you to linger over just one more glass of wine. The menu is minimal but well executed. Don’t pass up the classic bruschetta to start. You may have had bruschetta heaps of times, but patrons rave about the Vasko version. For an entrée you might delve into marinated and grilled octopus with a fresh radish and fennel salad, or perhaps chargrilled asparagus with roasted pancetta. The fresh and lively pastas and risottos include a mushroom, zucchini and spinach risotto topped with sage and white truffle oil, or delicate homemade ricotta gnocchi with a touch of pesto on a bed of Napoli. You can order from the grill too, taking your pick of the fish of the day, pork belly or “The Balkan” — a family specialty with pork and veal. Flavours are full here and the atmosphere is just right for good conversation. Did we mention the loukoumades? They’re a traditional Greek-style donut served with vanilla ice cream. Definitely worth a try. Best dish: Pork belly with crackling
