    This was a real gem I did not know was there. I found it on the net and will be sure to go back there. The food was really good, all our party were very impressed with their meals. The staff were great, we will be sure to go back there and take other family and friends.

    This restaurant knows how to look after their diners. The food is fresh and excellently presented. The staff are friendly and always helpful without being too obvious. A truly wonderful experience.

    Wonderful food & ambience, service was a little slow to start & an order mix up with drinks but that was redeemed by the food! Brilliant Cevapcici entree & slow cooked lamb shoulder that melted in your mouth!

    Food was really good but service patchy. If the staff member came to take a drinks or food order and we weren't quite ready and asked for a bit more time we didn't see them again until we got fed up waiting for them to come back and had to somehow get their attention to come and take our order. Everyone was really nice just not customer focussed.

    Friendly staff but service a bit slow, perhaps not used to the post Covid state, quite noisy particularly initially so wouldn’t recommend if hard of hearing. Food was good when it arrived.

    Vaskos never disappoints. Fantastic food, great staff and lovely atmosphere. There are also a lot of options for those that require gluten free food.

    My friend and I have been to Vasko twice now and it is a truly exciting venue due to the exceptional food and the wonderfully genuine welcome and service. I would suggest Vasko to anyone looking for a great venue. They will not be disappointed.

    Our first night of dining out since the Covid restrictions eased and it was very memorable. The food was as delicious as ever...amazing beef cheeks. The service was great, but respectful of the times we are living through. The staff were very welcoming and attentive. We were seated in the back room which doesn’t have the ambiance of the front section, but again I understand the tough times for restauranteurs and their need to serve diners safely. A wonderful family business.

    We had a great meal, great service but a little noisy. I have been at lunchtime before when it is less noisy. Service was helpful. Wish I could have read what the night's specials were rather than the waiter having to remember them and us then having to remember them.

About the restaurant

An Italian Affair It’s a family affair at Vasko Restaurant in Ivanhoe. Vasko Dzanovski and his family bring passion and craft to the plate in this intimate Italian restaurant. Vasko Restaurant serves lunch and dinner in an inviting, stay-awhile atmosphere that lures you to linger over just one more glass of wine. The menu is minimal but well executed. Don’t pass up the classic bruschetta to start. You may have had bruschetta heaps of times, but patrons rave about the Vasko version. For an entrée you might delve into marinated and grilled octopus with a fresh radish and fennel salad, or perhaps chargrilled asparagus with roasted pancetta. The fresh and lively pastas and risottos include a mushroom, zucchini and spinach risotto topped with sage and white truffle oil, or delicate homemade ricotta gnocchi with a touch of pesto on a bed of Napoli. You can order from the grill too, taking your pick of the fish of the day, pork belly or “The Balkan” — a family specialty with pork and veal. Flavours are full here and the atmosphere is just right for good conversation. Did we mention the loukoumades? They’re a traditional Greek-style donut served with vanilla ice cream. Definitely worth a try. Best dish: Pork belly with crackling
