Atmosphere is good. Menu does not show spark or innovation. Must admit that two people in our party of 8 became ill after eating here. both ordered the same dish.

Would have given a five if it had not been for the long wait for our entrees. But the comaraderie and conversation made the time pleasant. The appetizers were okay, and once the entrees arrived, they were very good. The wine list is so-so and way over priced, in my wine snobby opinion. Service was attentive and friendly and made...

My wife and I stopped here while on our honeymoon for a late-lunch/early-dinner. We both agreed that the place was nice and the food was delicious, but couldn't help but leave feeling some-what disappointed. What we liked: - The food was very good. Bread was great, fried ravioli was delightful, and the fettuccine alfredo with lobster was VERY good. -... More

Next time you are on the Independence Missouri city square, I would suggest you take the time to stop in at Cafe Verona. The food is excellent! Prices are moderate. The wait Staff is very attentive. Stop by for a quick lunch!

Just randomly googled "Italian" # cafe Verona! All I can say it was AMAZING! Italian bread olive oil and cheese super. The "sweet" best part was the lemonchello cake with raspberry sauce! It is a definitely go to place! YUM!

There were around 40 people that were served family style in a upstairs banquet room. We had assorted breads with dipping sauce, salads, 4 entrees to sample, and ice tea or water. The entrees were pasta with Alfredo sauce, lasagna, spaghetti with meatballs, and chicken in a creamy red sauce. All were very good. It was my first time eating... More

I took my boyfriend here for a nice dinner for his birthday and I was expecting something fancier I guess. First off it's a very cute place, they have a small little courtyard with a fountain and then you go in the doors and there's a small bar and to the left a very small dining room. This place is...
