“Reminds me of restraunt Don Corleone would (own or) visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

I'm not Italian but this place FEELS AUTHENTIC! Great house dressing on a Fabulous Verone Salad - fresh peppers (of all sorts), lettuce tomatoe mushrooms mozzarella - cleaned up with excellent homemade bread selection - I ordered extra dressing for bread dip. Red Snapper was cooked perfectly and prepared w firm, tasty steamed broccoli. The seafood accents of shrimp and oysters made the plate truly special. As I was told, " Bon appetite", my friends!

“Working in Alexandria”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

Myself and team members spend close to a month in Alexandria working with a client. This was my first try at Verona after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor. A spacious and lively restaurant with great signage making it easy to find from the highway. Greeted very warmly and the attention from the staff, including those from the kitchen, was warm, frequent and accomodating.

Menu is quite varied with plenty of choices in Chicken, Veal and Seafood. My entree selection was ravioli with shrimp. A Verona salad, which could be split by two people, was sandwiched in between the entree and the eggplant appetizer split four ways. Wrapped it up with a tasty cappuccino and a bite of the Tiramisu which was very light.

All in all, a refreshingingly nice meal, warm service, that was within the per diem allowed for a company dinner. Definitely going back.

My experience with most other restaurants in Alexandria has been with chains. This had the feel of a locally owned and operated restaurant.

“Great food, reasonable service, reasonable prices!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

I enjoy the food at Verona's a lot. The sauce base they use on many of their dishes is a strong tomato base, and I really like that.

While it's not a "fancy" restaurant, it is a nice place to go, and you leave feeling like you ate at a slightly upper scale restaurant. (without the bump in pricing that goes along with upper scale)

The menu is fairly diverse, and all the dishes I've tried are very good.

I highly recommend that you try them. You'll be glad you did!
