Small, but worth it.

This restaurant is right across the street from the Hawthorne Hotel. It is very small and only seats about 45 people. Fortunately, we got there before the rush so didn't have to wait to be seated. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Wait staff was pleasant.

A small Italian restaurant next to the Hathorn Hotel. There are only about a dozen tables and quarters can be tight. Don't let this stop you from going in. The pasta and sauce are outstanding. Service was friendly and helpful. Looked like mostly locals the night we were there. Prices are reasonable - rabbit was one of the specials.

This wonderful Italian restaurant had been recommended by several locals. I can't say enough about it. The food, service and ambiance were amazing. It's a very cozy restaurant. The owner would come to each table and chat with the people. He made you feel like family. We were lucky to get a table right away but we also went to... More

This tiny restaurant tucked away on a side street offers delicious dishes. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating even offering dishes off the regular menu. Service is fast and efficient. We will definitely return for another dinner on our next visit.

It's a quaint little restaurant that you might miss if you're not paying attention, but quality food, romantic atmosphere and great waitstaff make this a hidden gem in Salem!

We have eaten at Bella Verona twice and found it to be quite good. The staff, including the chef (I believe) were extremely attentive. The offerings were good and every dish I had was very good, though my favorite was a seafood dish.

Awesome food, though we only had appetizers and dessert and a carafe of wine. I wish we had been able to have an entire dinner here, but I will look forward to this for next time. I would recommend reservations; for Father's Day evening dinner, the restaurant was packed.
