Nice layout (entrance 'round back) a little warm sitting by the pizza oven but a delightful meal. Generous portions left plenty to take home and enjoy again. Will return.

We came for a date night to enjoy a nice dinner. Knowing the owners, i would have thought it would be a lot better. This is our second time dining at Verace. The pasta with the lobster was amazing and the steak was cut perfectly. Our waitress on the other hand wasn't the best. I am a waitress and i... More

We've been here before as you'll see in my reviews so when I asked my daughter where she wanted to eat for her high school graduation she said "Verace". I made reservations and since we were five explained that I did not want to sit near the 2 person tables. The woman assured me we were nowhere near them. I... More

Their menu is great and chef specials are fabulous. Never had a bad meal or experience! This visit was with another couple Nd the service was outstanding! We had a short wait with reservations, but that's to be expected on a Friday night! Tables are close together and seating is tight. Barely room to fit plates and silver wear but... More

Perfect variety for diverse diners. My brother is a foodie -- he did the three course meal with Long Island wine pairings. I wasn't very hungry, so I did one of the pizzas and have leftovers for lunch tomorrow. My husband sticks to known dishes, so he had a shrimp dish. My sister-in-law had fish with a wonderful crispy skin.

Had a family celebration and we had a grand group of about 50. We had the meal served family style and the food and service was all outstanding. I world highly recommend this location in Central Islip. Plus the Italian cuisine was some of the best you will ever dine to.

Thank mcfetbruce

The VERACE menu harkens back to the rustic roots of Italian cooking in its simple elegance with focus on the freshest ingredients and honest flavors. Wine-on-tap is premium in a program that is one of the first in the USA working with award-winning wineries in Italy and New York State. High design, inside and out, combines modernity with respect for the ages from its cobblestone passageway entrance to the fully exposed and state-of-the-art cooking suite in powder-coated Ferrari red. VERACE is one of six fine dining establishments from the Bohlsen Restaurant Group (www.Brgroup.Biz) which also owns and operates top-Zagat rated Tellers Chophouse next door in Islip; neighborhood favorite Beachtree Cafe in East Islip; the vibrant H2O Seafood Grill in Smithtown, NY; Gold Coast harborfront Prime - An American Kitchen and Bar in Huntington; and newly acclaimed and four star Monsoon Asian Kitchen and Lounge in Babylon Village.
