I lived in the Denbigh area in and am pretty sure this restaurant goes back at least that far. It's a friendly Italian restaurant that offers all kinds of other recipes for people that aren't partial to Italian.

The last time I was at this restaurant, I had an antipasti salad and pizza. Both were fabulous. I enjoyed the conversation with, I assume, the owner or manager. It's an enjoyable restaurant. I knew when I saw another cook in the back, not to order at all but I said I'd give it a shot.

Usually the food is to die for but this day it was nasty and unseasoned to boot. I've been going here for more years than I'd like to admit. It's hard to not give a good review to a place I've loved. The man who I believe is the owner is very friendly.
The staff friendly. Today was no exception, however the rest of my experience wasn't as good.

We walked in to see several tables that had not been cleared, filthy floors that needed to be swept. My husband reported that it appeared the men's room had not been cleaned. The tears in the vinyl of the seats is becoming more pronounced. There was nothing wrong with the quality of food, the restaurant itself lacked much needed attention. It concerns me that so many staff members could just walk by these dirty areas.
It wasn't until we finished our meal that they began to clear tables while still neglecting the floor. I'd like to say I'll give them another chance, but I'm not so sure Our family has been coming here for the past 10 summers, and in the past ten years Vancostas has kept their low prices and delicious menu selection the same. The place has a very loyal group of local patrons. Although there may be a line of people waiting to be seated, you never wait more than a few minutes before you're at your table. You can get breakfast here all day long.
The place has been family owned and operated for years now. The staff is very friendly and service is prompt. It's not the kind of place where they try to rush you through your meal. Please note that they no longer offer all-you-can-eat pizza on Monday nights. We typically take vacation the week before Labor Day as the schools in Virginia are already back in session so things are not as crowded in Busch Gardens or Colonial Williamsburg.
We're already looking forward to our next visit! Don't let the out of date decor detour you from visiting.

The staff is friendly greeting regulars by name and other patrons with a smile. I've been eating here for years. I've tried various items on the menu but my husband and I always go back to our favorite - the steak and cheese sub with french fries. Freshly cooked with melted cheese on a soft sub roll. I enjoy starting my meal with the house salad with the house vinegar dressing.
