Fine Italian dining...one aspect keeps it from 5 stars

Nice atmosphere. Portions are relatively generous. Food is very, very good and the prices in comparison are reasonable. The bread and oil dip is a must...delicious. The salads are freshly prepared and quite tasty. The only hitch in the wagon was the waiter. The service as far as food delivery was... read more

Let me start by saying this has always been my daughters favorite restaurant and every year we go for her birthday as well as other occasions throughout the year. This year we weren't too happy. We went on a Tuesday night and the place was empty- good for us or maybe not. Our waiter could not have been slower and... More

We had a family dinner at this restaurant after the loss of a family member, the staff was incredible, they put us in a corner and went above and beyond for us.

We love the Italian food and seafood at La Vera Cucina... Never, ever have we been dissatisfied. The staff is wonderful and the atmosphere is nice- although sometimes a bit loud from the crowd. A great place for a special occasion.

I had never been here before but it came highly recommended by someone who lives in the area. The place sits in the middle of a quiet neighborhood off the main street, with nice homes all around. The entrance is old style, as you walk up to a porch that wraps around the place. Once you enter it takes you... More

Ate here a couple a times. The ambiance was lovely and so was the staff. The food was good. But the dessert was terrible. I'm a dessert girl. So I have to say it. Maybe it was an off time. Another try may be a thought.
