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

First timer to La Veranda Cafe and enjoyed dinner. I had the lemon cream risotto with chicken and sautéed veggies, hubby had lasagna and daughter had a pepperoni pizza. All meals were tasty and generous in size; we will be enjoying leftovers tomorrow! For dessert we ordered the vanilla gelato, the creme brûlée and the tiramisu and were not disappointed... More

My husband and I came in for a nice glass of wine. We have becomes weekly regulars. The food and staff members are great. Everything is made fresh to order. The Veranda Salad is a must have. This place is worth trying.

I enjoy meeting friends here for lunch or dinner. Prices are right and the food is very good. I appreciate it that the service is not intrusive and I never feel rushed to leave the place when I am relaxing with friends.

Good italian food but nothing exceptional. The wine list is okay with several local labels. Ambience is average with tables fairly close to one another. The back group seating should be avoided if possible. Average place that does not draw you back for more.
