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.

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.

Our party of three when for lunch at Cafe Verona while visiting the Truman Library and old town Independence. We did not have reservations and had to wait about 10 minutes for a table. The food and service were wonderful.

The sangria is the best part of Cafe Verona. The food is good, has great flavor. Sometimes the food doesn't come to my table at the most satisfactory temperature for me, but the flavor is delicious. The price seems pretty comparable to other Italian restaurants. Small and quaint restaurant with friendly staff. I would recommend Cafe Verona.

The food was great along with the service. I had a glass of red wine to go along with my pasta. I would so go there again next time I am in town.

We met several other couples for a dinner at this restaurant and had a great experience. It was half price wine night which we did take advantage of. All of the entrees were pleasing to the eye and the palate. I had a special chicken dish with sun dried tomatoes, capers, artichokes and olives that was to die for! The... More

Not only is the food wonderful, but the restaurant is too. Be sure to check out the quaint patio. The risotto is cooked to perfection and they have an extensive selection of wines!
