I went in and ordered the penne arrabbiata and the carbonara. When it came the penne was littered with chilli peppers and a bit of tomato sauce. The carbonara was soggy and looked like someone dumped a cup of cream in it. Had 3 bites...and left.More

Everything was great. Best restaurant in the hotel. I would recommend this restaurant as well as the Meditrian one

Was on a week vacation with my girlfriend...stayed at the Royalton Chic and this was the Italian restaurant on site. Lots of offerings but not so Italian.

Among the 5 a la cartel restaurants at Chic Vespa is by far the worst one. Pasta has a weird taste of flour and the tomato sauce; which is the cornerstone for any Italian dish has a bitter, almost metallic taste. It’s probably canned tomato...sauce that they just heat up. They use this sauce in more or less every dish so it’s a big issue. Fish doesn’t taste fresh which is strange as the fish in the other restaurants at the resort didn’t taste like it had been frozen. We gave Vespa 2 chances. The pizza is ok; the rest disappoints. You are better off visiting any of the other a la carts places or the buffet, they all deliver high quality food.More

The ambiance was nice. Pizza was amazing (I only had a small bite as I am gluten free) but my husband loved all of the food there.. not many options for me. thought they would have GF pastas?

Amazing food! Definitely worth going while at the resort. Service was a bit slow but the food made up for that.

Vespa was open 3 times during our 7-night stay during the offseason which was a tad bit disappointing since the spaghetti with meatballs was terrific and so was the asparagus and parmesan risotto. however, the gnocchi was soft and bland. Overall, I would go back...many times more if it was available.More
