“great food in a poor location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

It was recommend by other boating people. Two blocks from the Marina. The neighborhood was part of a redevelopment district and sadly many store fronts were empty.
The GOOD news is the food is excellent. My wife had an appetizer and I had the sole Dore.
The servings were very generous and the food tasty and served hot. The Waitress was very attentive and the prices reasonable. The wine list is the only thing lacking. We will return.

“A great meal, not just for locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

If you don't live in Pittsburg, you've probably never heard of La Veranda. Frankly, between Antioch and Pittsburg, there aren't a lot of choices for a decent meal with a nice wine list and linen napkins. So you've got to run down Railroad Ave off of Hwy 4, towards the river and when you reach the center of Old Town Pittsburg you'll find La Veranda on the corner of E. Fifth Ave. In the summer you'll enjoy the bistro feeling dining on the sidewalk.

Tonight I enjoyed Spaghettini Fruitti Di Mare (seafood with spaghetti in a light lobster bisque). This dish included nice sized shrimp with tails on, calamari, and mussels. Instead of olive oil and balsamic with french bread, they served a wonderful sun-dried tomato sauce with the bread.

Next time I'll have one of the other tasty pasta dishes like Penne Tre-Funghi (porcini, Portobello & shitake mushrooms, or Penne all'arrabiata (garlic, vodka, spicy marinara cream sauce.

“Great family Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Friendly wait staff and very family oriented. We were hear for a competition and my son remembered it from last year an begged me to go. He loves the ravoli in a cream lemon sauce. I had the same, but I have also had various seafood dishes which were excellent in the past.

We were too full for dessert, but a scoop of gelato appeared with two spoons from the owner (?) who obviously loves kids. It was a great experience. We will go back anytime we are in the area.
