Great find in Clayton

This restaurant is nestled away in downtown Clayton. The menu is American/Italian and quite diverse with specials. Appetizers are very good we especially like the steak capparcio. I have tried several different lamb dishes and all good. Halibut pappy-at is also very good. Fresh pastas are wonderful... read more

There is not many choices in such a small town and I have never had a bad meal here. We had showed up to meet friends without reservations since the place never seemed too busy. We walked in and the place and WOW, it was packed which was nice to see. They said it would take 15 minutes and that's... More

Clayton has only a hand full of restaurants and this one is the Italian eatery. We enjoy the happy hour and that brings us in and we stay for dinner. prices are reasonable and food is good.

We have been in La Veranda few years ago. The food for the price was so-so. The menu could be better, the service was great

It had been a couple of years since I'd last been at La Veranda, but ended up there one night with my husband and was pleasantly surprised/reminded of how nice it is. The service was attentive and friendly and more importantly the food was great. We had a very enjoyable evening out and I was so pleased that my husband... More

I've noticed that some eateries perform well when business is booming while some seem to get a little too laid back when things are slow. This is the second time I've eaten here while visiting family (albeit last time was two years ago...) and there's nothing really negative to say - just nothing really glowing either. They should get credit... More

La Veranda has deteriorated over the years, service is average and food questionable. If you like to gamble and want to takes a "crap shoot" then go ahead and roll those dice. For my money I'll skip La Veranda and go where I can count on a great meal. Bella's is just a couple miles down the road and you... More

We have dined at LV multiple times. It is a great restaurant with a good variety of foods, great service and interesting specials. We frequently get coupons that help although I would describe the prices as moderate.

We enjoyed our meal in the Victorian home setting. We had various pasta dishes that were all different and yummy. Our waitress was very pleasant and moved my Mom to a better location when we requested it. The salad was fresh and had a generous helping of blue cheese crumbles on top. We took half of everything home with us... More

I give three stars for service because the servers were pleasant, but two stars would be justified since it took three requests to get more water, and one expresso never arrived. (By then we were ready to leave and didn't point it out.) Sauces on pasta dishes are good but not sophisticated. Tiramisu (a dessert I make) was basically whippped... More
