I had the dish that was supposed to have rosemary meatballs. Did not taste any rosemary in the meatballs. The pasta was cooked well. Had the tiramisu for dessert. There are other places in Hudson that have better tiramisu.

Admittedly, made in error in mentally calculating the tip for the server. Was embarrassed bye the manager as they questioned why I left less than the customary tip. This restaurant lost a patron tonight. Worse yet, the dinner tonight was special because we were celebrating our anniversary.

I am deeply sorry about your experience at Vico. The manager's behavior was inappropriate and against our company policy, as it does not reflect our commitment to creating a hospitable and inviting atmosphere for our guests. He has been reprimanded and instructed not to behave this way in the future. I thank you for bringing this to my attention. - Mark Ganem, Chef-Owner

I go here every Christmas Eve and Mother’s Day and they always have outstanding dinner options. Although it is pricey, it is food you most likely will not experience anywhere else.

A nice, intimate, friendly restaurant with up and down food. The service was excellent. The waiter was knowledgeable without being oppressive. No complaints. I ordered the pear salad (fine...with a tangy dressing)
And salmon (ok) and white beans (very good). My husband ordered the chicken (moist and filling). Our friends had the pork chop. They were a tad underwhelmed. The tiramisu was good but the crime brûlée had one of the most delicious toppings I've ever eaten. We had a nice, fruity Chianti and several mixed drinks. The coffee was rich too. We might go back if we were in Hudson again.

A friendly atmosphere at this very Italian restaurant. It truly felt genuine. The pasta is all hand made at the restaurant (or so I understood it) and it was absolutely delicsion. I came into town late so I ran through the doors just prior to closing, but the kitchen was friendly enough to serve yet anther meal that night. I really appreciate it. If you are looking for a fancier meal, this is the right place to go.

Great service. Friendly staff and amazing food. I ordered a stuffed pork chop something I usually would not do. It was amazing could go back and eat it again the next day.

Thank you for sharing your experience at Vico! Were so delighted to hear that you enjoyed your visit. By the way, the pork chop is a reinterpretation of a dish called Arista di Maiale I learned as a chef in Tuscany. Hope to see you again soon. Best, Mark Ganem, Chef-Owner
