I have been passing Cafe Veloce for years. Heard good things, so took some family members here the other night. We were all very impressed for a first visit. Daughter had Chicken Scampi, Son-in-Law had Spinach Lasagna and I had the Beef/Gorgonzola Pasta. Portions were plentiful, service was excellent and the food had excellent flavors. The children's cheese pizza for... More

We have been eating at Café Veloce for over 20 years. What I have noticed in the last 2-3 years is the prices going up (which I would expect) however the portions are much smaller. Recently ordered a chopp salad at lunch for $12.00 and it was served on a very large (shallow) dish. It amounted to about 1 cup... More

I have been eating at Café Veloce for many years...it is amazing how consistent their food is, always good provided via excellent service. I can't help but order the Adriatic pasta dish, it is insanely good, never fails. My husband tries different items and I don't know a single person who has every been disappointed by a meal here. It... More

Would give a 5 rating if it had a full bar. Some of the best Italian food anywhere at very reasonable prices. The service is always friendly and very good. I had the dungeness crab and scallops pasta that was amazing. My wife had the shrimp scampi that she was totally happy with. My sister in law had gorgonzola meatballs... More

Disappointed in the Seafood Scampi. Alfredo sauce very watery - not the creamy sauce described on the menu. Have hear good things about cafe, must say disappointed. Ok to have noise in restaurants; however, it'd be nice if we could have a conversation and actually hear each other. Lots of children, lots for Friday evening happy hour!

My cousin just got back from being on a sub for the navy and decided wanted to come to this restaurant since he has been here before. It was a cool theme, old school motorcycles. I wouldn't say to go here expecting to get all dressed up for a fancy dinner. It definitely felt more casual than that, and that's... More

I don't know why I don't eat here more often, the food is very good, service is fine and the taste is very authentic. The décor is nice, I love vintage motorcycles. Definitely worth a try if you have not been here and worth going back if you have not been here in a while.

Cafe Veloce is one of those nice neighborhood restaurants off the drag that the locals know about and love. Having eaten there probably 20 times as of this writing, I can say its one of those places I don't hesitate to go back to. They have a nice variety of Italian dishes that include the favorites but also include some... More

We had noticed this place in the mall with cars around it all the time on our numerous trips to the Evergreen Hospital area and kept saying, "It's Italian, we ought to try it some time." So, the other day we did and chose to eat "al fresco" since it was a beautiful day. We were not disappointed. One look... More
