Casual comfortable dining

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... read 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.

I have never been more disappointed with a meal, especially after spending nearly a hundred dollars for the two of us. Beside the fact that many of the items we ordered were not served warm, my veal was over cooked and tough. Our meal was also Luke warm. It would have been a great date if we hadn't had to... More

The atmosphere was wonderful and menu selection was excellent with a separate gluten free menu. When our orders came, I questioned the server to be sure my entree was gluten free - he assured me it was. I began to eat and chat with my husband. About half way through my meal my stomach began to lurch. In horror I... More

Our night at Verona did not end in tragedy unlike like Shakespeare's star crossed lovers. The setting for our romantic night - Valentine's day. Luckily, we'd made a reservation week's ago. They were turning people away because the place was packed. We arrived a few minutes early, and our seating was only about 10 minutes behind schedule - fine with... More

Nice atmosphere and tasty italian dishes. There was an elevator, which was nice for our upper floor dining experience. We had a large party and our food was served family style. Good variety. I would definitely go back again.
