A nice ride out into the country. The Italian fare is very tasty and well prepared. The restaurant is in a old over-sized house and is very well kept. The menu is extensive with a number of good specials. Go slowly in the parking ot as it is unpaved and has some deep ruts.

First off, we were unable to try this well rated restaurant. We wanted to come here to celebrate our granddaughter's sweet 16th birthday. We called to make reservations and asked if we could bring a small special Birthday cake for her. We were told "we don't allow any outside cakes, it's our policy". Well we took our granddaughter, her cake,... More

We have eaten at La Vera Cucina many times and have never been disappointed. Tony is an exceptional host and the staff make you feel at home. Wonderful meals but I warn you to come hungry as the portions are large.

Food is fantastic with a nice variety to choose from. Simple wine list with reasonable prices. Service is slow, very slow which is too bad as the food is really good.

Having eaten at several top restaurants in Orange county, La Vera Cucina remains our favorite. However, the restaurant is small and on special occasions you need to make reservations well in advance. My personal favorite is the rack of lamb with a herb crust that melts in your mouth. Couple that with a good wine and you're in heaven !

Love this restaurant, great food and atmosphere. Whenever my family visits me they always want to go out to eat here. The bread with dipping sauce they put on the table is excellent. The portions are large, I always have to bring home half. The food is great quality.

Service is always great and the food is head and shoulders above all of the other restaurants in Monroe. I especially love the lobster bisque and the sizzling steak.
