“Beef lovers' paradise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012 via mobile

This is a steak house, Italian style. Beef and buffalo of US, Australian, Italian and possibly other origins, in various cuts, well prepared. Probably more unusual for an Italian than an American.
They serve you a small complimentary antipasto while you wait for you main dish.
Typical Italian vegetables accompany the meat. You also get a hot salt rock to heat your pieces on if they cool down.
The wine list is not very long but well chosen and nicely priced (we had a Lagrein from Alto Adige). We ate early and the service was quick and friendly as you'd expect. They speak very limited English.
Obviously, don't go here for a typical Italian meal, but it's a nice venue for a carnivorous interlude.

“Vasco's Steaks are mouth watering”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

Have been to Vasco's restaurant 3 times in 2011.
The service is absolutely fantastico!
A very friendly and welcoming environment whether your going in for a quick snack or a full 3 course dinner.
The steaks are some of the best quality I have ever tasted and the variety of different meats is vast.
Vasco himself is somewhat of an artist with his food tastes!
Outside of the meats, there is also the 'Angry Pasta'. If your into hot food this will give your taste buds a real treat.
Then there is the very 'strange' desert called 'Zabionne'. This is a traditional dish of the Montovan area and you should do some reading on it's purpose... it's quite entertaining.
A thick alcoholic custard looking sauce with a grape jelly. It has a real kick and just leaves you wanting more. Be careful not to have too much otherwise you'll be quite frisky later on :)
I visit Italy many times a year and VASCO always gets most of the visits.
Now, we just need to convince him to open in London!
