Very good neighborhood restaurant

More than you expect for a strip mall location, this was a quite nice white table cloth restaurant with a basic Italian-American inspired cuisine. The food was fresh, reasonably priced and decently presented. The authenticity of the presentation could be debated but the taste was quite good and the... read more

My son and I went to Verona's just before he left for college. They serve bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar, which is very tasty. I ordered the gnocchi, which were prepared perfectly, with a light marinara sauce. My son ordered a pasta with pancetta, mushrooms, peas, in a creamy sauce. While he liked it, he LOVED my gnocchi,...

A quiet pretty Italian restaurant my older friends like. Or a restaurant I go to when I have to discuss business at dinner. Unfortunately, the appetisers and salads are uninspired! The Caesar salad looks and tastes like it came out of a $3 grocery store cellophane salad package without any added care. The portions are so small that the entrees... More

Found this nice little Italian restaurant just 6 minutes from my hotel in Modesto. Would have travelled much further to find this level of service and meal. Ordered the special Halibut with corn risotto...both very flavorful and pleasing. Was surprised by the white table cloths and overall quality in a strip mall.

As always, the food did not disappoint. My mom ordered and thoroughly enjoyed a fried eggplant dish. I had a sea bass with tasty risotto and fresh vegetables, my son had the ravioli special and devoured it. Since I have been there last, I think they have changed the olive oil and balsamic served with the bread before the meal,... More

Long time strip mall location, kicks out some amazing and consistent goodness. Varied venues available to enjoy your meal, from dining room, to bar, to patio, all are quite enjoyable.

i had read other reviews and did expect to wait for a hostess. The several minutes wait with no one acknowledging me was a little uncomfortable. However when the hostess appeared she was extremely friendly and we were made very welcome. The meal was exquisite, I had sea bass, my husband the cioppino which he said was the best he'd... More

We went with friends to this place in the McHenry Village shopping area, not sure what to expect, because the exterior signage is reminiscent of a 1950's cocktail lounge. We were very pleasantly surprised at the classy interior. The main dining room is not overly large, a nice size for atmosphere, and there is a bar just behind the dining... More

Verona's is one of our top favorites in Modesto. While there is not always someone at the hostess station, we go for the food, atmosphere, and service (after seating.) Food is consistently good. We almost always order from the specials, and if you have special requests Verona's will make them for you if they have the ingredients. Service is cheerful... More
