Tasty Italian food!

Had a delicious meal, 2 daily specials; salad with tomato, mozzarella and greens, and lobster ravioli. Portions were modest but very rich, could have licked the plate! Tiny place, cosy atmosphere, I ate early so it wasn't crowded but it might be if you go at peak dinner hour. Easily accommodated... read more

Tiny place, cosy atmosphere, I ate early so it wasn't crowded but it might be if you go at peak dinner hour. Easily accommodated me as a single diner.

What a fantastic cute restaurant! It feels as though you are in Italy eating at someone's home! It is very small in there but I feel it makes it for a very intimate dinner. I loved the feel and atmosphere. Food was out of this world! Tasted like genuine authentic Italian food not nasty chain restaurant! A little pricey for... More

Small quaint restaurant with a "family-owned" feel and atmosphere. Interaction with 3 staff all made us feel very welcome. We were tourists a week in Boston and a day in Salem and both chose this as our BEST food experience of our trip.

My first time at Bella Verona and all I can say is fantastic. Took my parents from out of town for dinner and every aspect of the evening was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious and the experience was pushed over the top by the wonderful staff. My thanks to Christina and Devon for the great service and a wonderful... More

Bella Verona is a charming little place that feels like you're dining in someone's home. There are only about 12 tables and it feels very cozy inside. The staff is incredibly friendly and seemed to know half the guests by name. Then the food arrives and you are treated to an incredible meal. The lobster ravioli is outstanding. They will... More

Our B&B host, Bob, recommended Bella Verona when we asked for a special place for our anniversary. It was the perfect choice! We felt like guests in the home of an excellent Italian chef. The wait staff were warm, friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. They made excellent recommendations including some substitutions to the menu. The meal was special and the evening... More

What a wonderful restaurant! Friendly Staff and great service. A "family" atmosphere. Food was the best i have ever eaten! A little over done with the decorations but homey feeling too. Staff were very personable and inviting.

The linguine and class were perfect - wonderful wine sauce, terrific al dente pasta and delicious clams. Great food, excellent service and reasonable prices. We will return.
