The food is good, the atmosphere/decor is nice. We've been with out of town guests and it hit a nice blend of comfort and sophistication.

Just the bread dipped in olive oil with grated Parmesan is enough to bring us back! Try the spinach salad with Italian tuna and grilled fennel. Served in the courtyard, it's the perfect summer meal..

The atmosphere is really good, as was the service. The food was good, but pricey and somewhat limited for lunch. I can see how this would be a great place for a special occasion or date.

My husband and I save Cafe Verona for Special Occasions not because it is expensive -- it is NOT - but because it is more "special" than other restaurants in Independence area. Every dish we have ordered has been outstanding. Setting has much more atmosphere than most area restaurants. Service is efficient, pleasant, but not bothersome. Banquet seating feels more... More

Just off the historic Independence, MO, square (think Harry Truman), is this smallish Italian style restaurant and bar. Entering through a courtyard, you realize you could dine out there in good weather. Menu items include most traditional dishes, but a lot feature the same food on small plates, great for those of us in the Medicare range. Menu features 11... More

My husband and I love to enjoy a date night here. The food is always good with lots of choices. Delicious! And the atmosphere has an old-world feel with dim lighting and interesting art. The waitstaff is friendly and responsive but not intrusive. Romantic and ideal for a leisurely lunch or dinner.

Cafe Verona tops olive garden or red lobster. Single handedly the best place to eat. Atmosphere was also great.

We had a great meal here. Good Italian food, good choice of wine and staff more than helpful. It's located in the old town square, some of which has seen better days but this place is first class. You must ask about the padlocks!!

Great food, kind of pricey(but I'm kind of a cheapskate), and good friendly service. I had gelato there for the first time, and it was soo yummy(made it easy to finish the large portion).
