Nice Atmosphere and Good Food

A group of friends from work and I met recently at Cafe Veloce for a book study session. It was a great choice. We were given the perfect sized table for the six of us. I loved the warm atmosphere with subdued lighting and holiday decorations. Service was fast and efficient. The menu is varied... read more

This was our second trip to Cafe Veloce. Then, as now, the lamb lasagne was ordered. On the previous visit the dish was very very good and memorable. This time, while it was good, not the standout it was last time. Seemed more re-heated than cooked fresh. We also ordered antipasta chopped salad. This is not a chopped salad greens... More

This place got great scores on TripAdvisor, and I can happily report that we LOVED it! Our party of 3 arrived and were seated promptly into a cozy dining room that was charming. Not too close to other diners, enough space to feel we could have a good conversation. The menu has lots of options, and we chose between us,... More

Whether you are looking for some great pasta (don't miss the Chicken Scampi) or a great salad this place will not disappoint. The food is always delicious and the service is great. They have local brews on tap and great wine too. Also for those needing gluten free, they have it, and its great!!

We've eaten here for a number of years and after an absence of about a year visited tonight. The salad was OK, the pizza was very disappointing. The dough tasted like it came from a can in the refrigerator case of the grocery store (thick and no flavor), the marinara sauce was so/so, vegetables were nothing special. The pasta dish... More

We came herewith friends because it was conveniently located near our hotel (walking distance) and it had good ratings. We enjoyed the meal (2-3 star) - the food was fresh, presented well and the service was great. The decor was well planned - i.e. Italian motorcycles, etc. and just an all round fun place. It was packed so that was... More

I don't often eat this kind of food so don't have lots to compare with but do know enough to say that my Anti-Pasta was good. I also had a cup of the Black Bean soup and it too was good.

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
