We had a wonderful dinner and were surprised by the excellent food and service for this small town restaurant. Menu had something for everyone and there were a variety of daily specials. We came with another couple for the first time and discovered the $5.00 early bird special on wine and appetizers before 6:00 pm. This was mid-week and the... More

Open for lunch and dinner, reasonably priced great place to eat before free summer sat concerts in the grove. Staff very accomodating, Nicholas, the owner extremely amenable, professional, many locals eat here as well.

This is a top notch restaurant with excellent service and delicious food. I found the portions to be large, yet I was able to happily finish my meal. My aunt had some special requests for the kitchen and they put together a meal to her specifications. When she found the green beans not soft enough (they were perfectly cooked and... More

Celebrated my wife's birthday at La Veranda. We had lunch here a couple of times but this was the first time for dinner. When I made the reservation I noted that we needed a quiet table because my mother is hearing impaired. They seated us in a side area, although they tried to get us to accept the table next... More

We were celebrating a special occasion so we wanted a nice restaurant but one that was relaxed and welcoming to a four-year-old. This place fit the bill. Food ranged from average to very good. Service was excellent. They anticipated our needs and made sure the child was well taken care of. There was plenty of room between tables--the restaurant was... More

Excellent food and service! Great place to enjoy the food, but also you can enjoy the company and conversation with friends due to the noise level is lower than most.

Service is very good and our waiter was attentive and checked on our party of 5 to make sure we had drinks, bread and served our food in appropriate amount of time. I had the Prawn Scampi which was excellent and the... More

La Veranda has everything from pizza, pasta dishes, and main dishes so it should fit anyone who comes in. They have "Happy Hour" every day from 4 PM to 6 PM which is great!

Just returned from an amazing Easter dinner at La Veranda. The ambiance is welcoming with murals of Italy and background music of Frank Sinatra and it only gets better from there! The staff was attentive and helpful in choosing just the perfect thing. (As I'm writing this my husband and mom are still discussing their meals!) Mom had the Petrale... More
