​In Italy and Greece they like to say, “una faccia, una razza”, which translates to “one face, one race”. It refers to the similarities between Greeks and Italians, and their shared heritage. Guido and Peggy Vacchio use this as the motto for their restaurant, which brings the best of both culinary cultures to West Columbia and the surroundings areas almost every day.


Vacchios makes fresh, authentic Mediterranean food that goes beyond pizza and gyros, though you’ll still find those popular standards on their vast menu. What else will you find? Lunch and dinner fare that is familiar, yet special, and enough of a selection to where you could order something different each time you go! Standouts include Spanakopita; Greek spinach pie with cheese in a flaky layers of phyllo dough, and giant Calzones that are filled with mozzarella and ricotta cheeses, and served with a delicious marinara sauce. Appetizers include Saganaki, or Greek flaming cheese, and for dessert, try the all-time favorite, Baklava, or a fresh-made Cannoli.


Weekly Specials are available on Wednesdays (Spanakopita, Greek-Style Oven Baked Chicken, or Souvlaki), Thursdays (Guido’s Baked Meatloaf), and Fridays (Pot Roast). You may get items to go, or delivery is available.


Vacchios is a quaint and cozy place with charming decor, just perfect for taking your special someone out for dinner, or dashing in for lunch with your coworkers. It’s kid-friendly and casual, and great for any occasion. They are available to host your next party or gathering – your guests will love the setting as much as the food!
