Restaurant Review: VT Pie and Pasta Company

Occasionally, I will post personal reviews of local restaurants. Keep in mind that these reviews are my personal opinion and that your experience may be entirely different. If you have been to the restaurants I review, please post a comment telling us about the experience you had there. More than one review is always helpful!

Restaurant: VT Pie and Pasta Company
Location: Derby VT
Price Range: $$ to $$$ (approx. $10-$25)

The VT Pie and Pasta Company is a new restaurant in our area, located in Derby, near Shaw's and Roaster's. It is owned and operated by the owners of Hoagie's Pizza and Pasta. The menu is a bit more upscale than Hoagie's, featuring truffled fries as an appetizer option. Also available are paninis, wood-fired pizza, pasta, burgers, and steak. Many menu items contain local ingredients.  The prices are fairly comparable to other local restaurants, but perhaps more on the expensive side depending on what you order.

My family and I opted to visit this restaurant for lunch after church one Sunday. Everyone at our table enjoyed their food. I chose the turkey panini, which included turkey, VT cheddar cheese, bacon, avocado, tomato, and pesto mayonnaise. The sandwich came with kettle-cooked chips, but for a small fee, you could get waffle fries instead. I'm not normally a huge fan of waffle fries, but it had been quite some time since I had eaten fries of any kind, and I decided to give them a try.

The waffle fries were great. They were well-seasoned, crispy, hot, and worth the $.75 extra that they cost. My panini was also good overall. I loved that the panini was not greasy. It was nice and crunchy, and quite tasty. I'm a person who enjoys meaty, crispy bacon and was disappointed to find that my bacon contained more fat than meat. I ended up removing quite a bit of it from my sandwich. My only other complaint about the sandwich was that I would have enjoyed a little spice for added flavor. Again, overall, the panini made for a great meal.

If you're in the area, give VT Pie and Pasta Company a try! Next time, I definitely want to try the VT Maple Salad. It sounds delicious! Pin It
