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.

We always enjoy the food and service. It's consistently good. The portions are generous and the mixed drinks well made. My favorite is Bronzino and my husband likes their pasta dishes. Have never had a bad meal

Dipping oil is amazing along with the Lobster Bisque soup. Lovely location, cozy in winter and nice porch to dine on in summer. Staff is friendly and specials are terrific. We brought our daughter here to celebrate her high school graduation evening.

I had dinner at La Vera Cucina on Christmas Eve and the meal was superb. My family enjoyed everything. Although the menu was limited because of the holiday there were some incredible dishes like the seafood risotto and the veal that we all devoured. . The staff were extremely attentive and friendly. An excellent choice for a great Italian meal... More

We come here so often it almost feels like home. The food is always delicious, service is professional and with a smile. Nice atmosphere. My husband frequently orders the Sizzler, for an Italian restaurant it is unexpectedly great. I mix it up but mostly pasta that is always delicious. And you can always count on the specials too.
