WE LOVE THIS PLACE

This is one of our "go to" places. We wil leat here 5-6 times a year and we have never been disapointed. We have been as a couple, with other couples and with our family. If the weather is conducive, eat on the patio. The steak with mac and chease may sound silly but give it a try, if you... read more

Although we love to support locally owned businesses while traveling, we are frequently disappointed by the quality of food, service or both. Not in this case. The service was attentive and friendly, the food was delicious, and the restaurant itself is beautiful. We were able to sit out on the patio, and it made us feel as though we were... More

This quaint Restaurant is nestled in the historical district in independence MO. I took my husband there for his Birthday. We were pleased with the suggested wine from the waiter to the authentic Italian seafood pasta dish. The ambiance was wonderful, the service was top notched and the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food served. WE LOVE... More

Excellent food and service; large portions. I had enough for the next evening's dinner! Everyone at our table was satisfied.

My friend and I were looking at places to eat and we came here to see the hype of the reviews, and it is the best "hole-in-the-wall" restaurant I've ever been to!

I liked the atmosphere from the beginning of the experience. Comfortable, quiet, casual. The food is served hot and fresh. Lazagna is nice and tastes fresh with seasoning and presentation. Portions were just right - no leftovers - but no room for dessert either. Our server was much better than average and it was a nice treat to have hospitality... More

I was so impressed with Ophelia's (in the Independence Square) that the girls and I had to go back to the square and try a new place. (Numerous shops and restaurants are owned by the same person in the square) It was a wonderful spring day and we decided to dine at Cafe Verona because they have outdoor dining in... More

Cafe Verona is a Cozy little place with great food and wine, a little pricey, but the service is wonderful. Reservations are accepted, and it can get Very Busy on the weekends.

The food was overall, pretty good. Nice crisp salad, good squash ravioli. But my friend had a chicken dish that tasted like it was cooked in some odd tasting oil or perhaps scalded. The service was excellent and we loved the decor.
