Editorial Review

Vace Italian Delicatessen, which used to be in a Wisconsin Avenue storefront but now occupies space on tiny Miller Avenue in Bethesda, is known for its pizza, available by the slice or by the pie. The crust is yeasty-tasting and chewy, a favorite of transplanted New Yorkers. But there is so much more, especially in the freezer cases that line one wall. Take your pick of prepared Italian classics including lasagna, manicotti and eggplant parmigiana, as well as veal and cheese ravioli and a variety of sauces.
