Heard good things about the food and we were very interested in trying dishes there. I don't drink alcohol and when the waiter asked for our drink order, we ordered diet cokes. He immediately changed his body language, abruptly left the table without saying anything. When another couple was seated next to us, He took their order, returned with cocktails... More

We really enjoyed their sea bass and ravioli entrees - excellent! But, their soup was just fair, and their house salad/dressing (no choice) was so bland .. disappointing.

We went here for dinner with our kids and a newborn baby so we requested to sit outside and were a party of 7 not including the baby. First the owner yelled at us that we showed up with too many ppl. (he counted the 3 week old as an extra person) The waiter who was very nice apologized for... More

This Italian restaurant is one of the best in South Florida, had the suppa di mare and what a treat. The service is wonderful and the Italian garlic bread is outstanding, this place has been in business forever and yet the quality stands.

Had just arrived to Pompano and tried out this Italian restaurant recommended by a friend. We enjoyed the waiters and got prompt service. I had the gnocchi which was excellent but had veal with spaghetti which was quite plain, nothing special unfortunately. Enjoyed the decor as we sipped on some wine and finished our meal with a good expresso.

I have only eaten there once and probably won't go back. I thought the service was poor. We had a reservation and still waited 40 minutes to be seated. When the food finally came, my meal was not hot. Needless to say our evening at La Veranda was not a good experience. It's only fair to say that you should... More

This is the place for a comforting, yummy Italian meal when you've eaten all the seafood you can eat. Much cozier atmosphere than Gianni's up the street and a really cute courtyard. Service is a little eccentric but not annoying. The food was very good as were the prices.

Tuscany, South Philly, or NYC of old it "ain't"... but good enough food, hustling waiters with ( go figure) Latin accents, and big room pleasant atmosphere. 4 star atmosphere outside, 3 star inside, so,If the evening is right try to sit outside. Romantic it's not...but there is a certain something. I like the place!!!
