“Menu is getting old. . . .but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Consistent! For sure! Good Italian grub with great service! Menu seems to be the same, always! Even the specials seem to nearly the same each week. But for good, consistent food, service and atmosphere, Verrazanos is a great spot to be a regular!

“Great bacon wrapped scallops”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

Scallops were the hit of the night. Room was a little cold but the service was friendly and knowledgable. Fresh parmesan grated on entrees was a treat. Pizza was excellent also. Our group of four had a great experience.

“Good food - Not so nice hostess”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

We made a special trip to this restaurant. We were staying in another city. We were not warmly welcomed. The hostess said "There's no room in the dining room right now - you can wait or go in the bar", She made no offer to take our name, and when we gave it to her, she was confused. We found our way into the bar - no directions offered. We were surprised to see that there were lots of tables in there. I asked one of the servers if you can eat in the bar and she said yes. We seated ourselves and then I went back out front to get menus. Not a good start.

Once we ordered the service was fine from the bartender / waiter. The food was about a three on a scale of 1 to 5. I had the spaghetti and meatballs and my partner had the lasagna.

Someone needs to teach the front of house staff some manners !!!

“COLD STORMY DAY, WARM FIREPLACE,VIEW OF PUGET SOUND,DELICIOUS MEAL!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

It was a dark and stormy day...when my husband and I drove by and saw this restaurant. It looked inviting on the outside, and when we entered the warm restaurant, we first saw two cozy chairs in front of a fire in the fireplace and then were greeted by a very gracious hostess; we knew it was going to be a wonderful late lunch/early dinner. The tables all overlook beautiful Puget Sound and Olympic Mountains and it was great to watch the windy rainstorms over the water. They also have a large outdoor deck for summer dining with twinkling lights all around it as well as large pots of bright and beautiful flowers. They have a very nice long bar with an extensive bar and wine list and it's easy to just spend a lot of time here! The presentation of our shrimp scampi appetizer, veal piccata, and chicken judea was very impressive and the taste was so awesome...well, let's just say, we had to soak up the delicious sauces with the incredible Italian bread. Our server was very attentive and made us feel very welcome and we really enjoyed our late afternoon early dinner. As we left, a gorgeous rainbow appeared and we knew this visit is definitely going to be a revisit!

“Very Pleasant meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Stopped by on our way back from Seattle. The Restaurant was not very busy so we go tin quickly. Service was attentive but not overbearing. The food was very good. Would recommend this place if you are looking for a nice quiet meal. Nice views from the restaurant and they have outdoor seating which would be very cool in the warmer weather.
