Located just off the quaint town square, this is a gem. Food was excellent and service was friendly and attentive. Bread and salad were very good. Entrees came out well times and were hot and very good. My husband and I had two different shrimp dishes, mine with pesto risotto, and we both were very happy with our choices. We... More

Nice courtyard is available for outside dining. The interior is also very charming as you will find lots of wood with wonderful windows with view of the street. Charming... More

I had the lasagna which was delicious! The bread was yummy and the house dressing was delicious, if you like basalmic vinegar based stuff. The waitress was a little rude but otherwise the atmosphere was great!

Been here 3 times now, once with the wife for dinner, and then twice for graduation parties. Amazing food (best Italian food in Independence), good prices, cool building and decor, and right in the square. Definitely a must go for anyone on a date.

My daughter and I ate at Cafe Verona three times during a 10-day stay in Independence. Yes, it was that good! The service was attentive and accommodating to various requests, the ambiance--whether inside or on the patio--was nice. The prices were reasonable, even more so in that we sometimes split the generous portions, since we didn't have a way to... More

My son chose Café Verona for his birthday lunch. We got there at 11 and had a seat outside. Our server was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. My daughter-in-law and I had the Chicken Marsala, my son, a vegetarian had several choices and chose the baked Mac and Cheese and my husband chose good ole spaghetti and meatballs.... More

I live near here, and eat here at least 6 times a year. Great food and service, year in and year out. The macaroni and cheese is excellent, so is the summer sangria! My husband loves the gnocchi.

Thank Tammy W
