We went here on a Friday evening at 6:30 with no reservations and a group of 10 people. They seated us outside within 15 minutes which was great as the evening was lovely. The food was incredible. I had the Gino pasta dish and my son had a pizza with pepperoni. The waiter was efficient and very professional. He didn't... More

We like going to Café Veloce for a quick dinner - their Italian meals are a great fit for the variety of tastes in our family. I enjoy the shrimp and mushroom salad and I love their herb butter for the Italian bread served before the meal. Their wine list is very good and they host wine pairing events that... More

Warm yet funky atmosphere , motorcycles on the walls , race and rally props and an open and flowing dining room lend an air of edge and comfort. The highlight is the food , great flavor profiles and authentic dishes. Portion size is perfect and the sense... More

I have been going to Veloces for 15 years. It has changed when it was sold to one of the waitresses. The portions used to be much bigger but now smaller. It is still good and a nice hidden gem.

Great deal $50 per person including tax and tip. A four course dinner served with 5 different wines. The food was very good but the wines were excellent. The wines were from Woodhouse Wine Estates located in Woodinville, Washington. The evening was hosted by Jean Claude Beck, whose family from Alsace, France has been making wine since 1579. He was...

Veloce is warm and welcoming with fun decor and a great menu selection. Pizzas are fantastic and I love their ravioli.

We live in the area and had never been, my son got a job here and so we came for our first (and then many more) visit. Huge selection of pastas, meals, pizzas. All are very good. Good kids menu. Good for family or group dining... All of the staff (not just my son) are super helpful and friendly. Always... More
