Description: This urbane and upscale pizza and Italian small-plates place is something the Peninsula has been waiting for. I'm usually a traditionalist when it comes to pizza toppings, but even their more unusual versions--sausage with honey!--work like a charm and are absolutely delicious. Small plates are very good, too, although I thought the bare-bones meatballs would have benefited from a little tomato sauce. The owners are very hands on and extremely welcoming, and the lively vibe would be right at home in SF or even Wine Country. A great addition to the Peninsula dining scene!

The dishes here are well prepared with great attention to detail. Wait staff is polite and efficient as well. An enjoyable ambiance with nice street size tables and even better quiet and private outdoor back seating.

My wife and I had lunch here with her parents while they were visiting. They had a nice conversation with the waiter, who was gracious and able to tell us where the fish came from. They appreciated the insight and we all thought that the food was great. It was a relaxing meal in a nice atmosphere. It's also a convenient location with a lot of parking across the street.

The best Italian pizzeria in Silicon Valley. Period. Whatever you order from the menu comes always great and is beautifully served. I've tried almost everything and each time I was 100% satisfied. Just like title says - you can't go wrong with Vesta. Pizza is totally authentic, baked in stone oven. Crust is always thin, topped with high quality ingredients. Small plates like pork meatballs, mushroom toast or grilled carrots are fantastic as well. Even chocolate biscotti are handmade by owner's mother. Service is exceptional. Make sure to book a table, especially on Friday and Saturday evenings. You can't miss this place!

The place is usually very busy and crowded. The food was delicious and the service was fine.
To eat here is not a low cost meal.

Was served by Liam and was very pleased. The Burrata Plate was interesting and the pork meatballs were delicious. Very tasty! The little gem salad was well made and we enjoyed the pizza. Definitely first class. Will certainly return.
