Vero is a hidden gem in Kensington that shouldn't be surpassed. Diane runs the show and she runs it well. She takes care to remember our names when we go to dine.

Went for my birthday with friends. Ambience was excellent food not so much. The menu was very limited and didn't feel Italian at all. Only 1 dessert option available. Would try again for dinner maybe but I was very disappointed

One of the best and finest meals I've had in Calgary...a bit pricey but that is compensated by a satisfying experience. You know the creative chef pays detailed attention to quality, taste and presentation. Place is small (high noise level), selection is limited but every dish we ordered from appetizers to dessert was good and out of the ordinary. The... More

Four of us decided to try out this quaint restaurant in the Kensington area on a recent Saturday night. We arrived for our 8:00pm dinner reservation and the restaurant was packed. There were also hopeful people waiting at the door trying to get tables. We started with a nice bottle of Bordeaux and appys. The Sweet Gnocci, Beet & Avocado... More

The waitstaff were wonderful. The food was very good. Our biggest problem was the parking. If you go, plan to park in a parking arcade. It will save you loads of time and aggravation!!

My friend and I booked this restaurant from Lake Louise to celebrate the last night (a Saturday) of our Canadian holiday. The meal and service were excellent. I had a Bellini with fresh peach juice. We shared the beet root salad and I had the seafood risotto/ paella. All were excellent dishes and very well presented. It was also a... More

Vero Bistro is a little gem on 10 street. My girlfriend and I met for a "ladies lunch" and were warmly greeted, seated and served. The space is small but cozy. The menu selections are interesting and have a lot of thought in them. We loved our waitress Diane. Funny, charming and obviously loves the quick pace of a good... More

My two girlfriends and I go to Vero often and it is consistently awesome. The food is meticulously prepare. Nothing feels slapped on the plate instead it feels intentionally placed with attention to detail. Every plate. Every time. Well done Chef Jenny and staff!

I first visited the restaurant with a Vine and Dine group and I can see why they keep coming. The dishes were outstanding and the service as well. I learned that they take reservations for breakfast, a delight as I don't want to wait outside many of the popular brunch spots to get a great meal. We had a reservation... More
