We visited the restaurant for the first time last weekend for lunch, it was a late lunch so the restaurant was kind of empty. We were greeted right away and the service was pretty good. The waitress was friendly without hovering over us. The chefs weren't busy and were chatting with each other rather loudly. Didn't bother us, but it appeared a bit unprofessional.
The hummus was really good, tomato bisque was a bit salty, but good anyway. Like the restaurant, but with the dimmed lighting, it was a bit too dark.
I would go back again.

A group of us walked to Vesta from the Marriott for some drinks. It was not very busy at Vesta's and there was 14 of us spending quite a bit of money drinking nice drinks. The waitress was not good at all, she would bring our bill before we got drinks and most times wouldnt go around the table to take orders. She would get irritated if we wanted her attention for anything. Two of us asked for a glass of ice water 3 times, never got it. It wasnt busy and alot of times she was just standing at the bar, chatting with another coworker. She seemed very inexperienced and irritated with us, then at 11pm we were told..LAST CALL. Huh?? They werent closing. We did not get an answer as to why we were being thrown out other than we figured she was tired of us. I wouldnt go back to Vesta's, the only thing they have going for them is they are close to the Marriott and no other decent bars other than the brewery to walk to from the Marriott. I should have asked for a manager before we left so we got an answer as to why we were told to leave. They werent busy, and we were a happy group spending quite a bit of money. Too bad she was so lousy, she really messed up for a good tip!

No secret anymore. This restuarant has become a popular Coralville eatery. Sit in a booth near the kitchen or request the "Library" for a cozy corner.

I've been to Italy a lot and can tell the difference, but the quality here is good, for what it is. Quite a popular and quite a pricey place. The other customers will be upmarket.
