“Perfect Family Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

this was our first dinning experience at Cafe Verona. We used the Open Table reservation system to secure a table. it worked perfectly. The building was nestled on the South side of the historic Independence Square. Parking was free and plentiful. The area felt safe.

The entrance was easy to find and our greeting was warm and friendly. Our server was spot on. She knew the menu and was very attentive (never had to ask for a drink refill).

The wife had Chicken Mac & Cheese which was really good. I had Shrimp Scampi in white sauce. The shrimp were huge and plentiful. the noodles were moist and sauced just right. Our son had meatballs off the kids menu (which had a good selection). the salad and soup were also spot on....try the tomato basil soup... we did and it was a real treat.

All the food was hot and tasted freshly prepared..much better experience than expected when your used to chain Italian restaurants... and we spent less money. we will definitely be back.

“Average Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Food was adequate but not special. Restaurant was not busy and wanted to close much earlier than the stated hours. Hence we felt very rushed.

“Great Italian place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

We go here every so often & have always gotten good food. The service is sometimes spotty but that is about the only negative thing I can say. I really like the sandwiches & they have the best fries. The portions are large enough that we have enough to take home. Check 'em out & help support downtown Independence.

Member of Open Table, Easy to find, romantic settings inside and out. Staff are all friendly and personable. Food is good and fairly decent wine list.

“Food is wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This restaurant is 4 levels, but they do have an elevator. Great place on the 4th floor to rent space for an event also. Food is wonderful. Service is good too.
