So maybe it is the region of Italy??? Our meal really was not great. My friend chose Bella Verona hoping to have lasagna or manicotti and this Italian restaurant had neither. We both ended up ordering chicken dishes, but the chicken breasts seem boiled and then added to pasta with gravy like sauce on them. Not very flavorful and the... More

Finally I found myself having dinner with friends at Bella Verona - despite how many people had told me how wonderful I had yet to visit myself - I was immediately taken with the atmosphere and professional manner of the staff. But I was unprepared for how incredible the food was - exceptional. And....the waiter was incredibly knowledgable. Great night

We stopped in Salem on our first night of vacation heading to Maine. We got in a bit late and Bella Verona was next to our hotel so we decided to try it. I'm so glad we did. The food was great. We didn't even look at the regular menu since there was so much on the special menu. The... More

This is one of the most romantic and intimate dining experiences you could have. Food is fresh and made to your taste. Don't be surprised if the waiter sits down at your table and talks to you personally about the evening's specials. Food is delicious and plentiful and they have a good wine list to choose from. The desserts are... More

We did like our quickly service and nice area to feel the Salem athmosphere. The food is good and the price is allright.

Right across from the Hawthorne Hotel, it was convenient and recommended by some of the guests. Small and cozy but with ambiance and good service. Had the veal with an aubergine appetizer and house wine, which were all delicious. Reasonably priced, I'll come again when in Salem.

In town for the weekend and after having a fun late night at Finz decided to quiet it down for night two. We were lucky enough to get a table at Bella Verona and had a wonderfully romantic meal in this cozy spot.

While this restaurant is small, it provides an enormous flavor boost. Every meal at our table was created from scratch - no canned sauce here! I had the Stuff Eggplant. Whatever is on the menu will be a total delight. There was a family next to us and the children also enjoyed the food.

I initially did not want to have an Italian dinner in Salem, since I usually try to have seafood when in New England, but we decided to try Bella Verona since it was across the street from our hotel and we had plans for the evening. What a wonderful surprise! To start, the restaurant is small, intimate and pretty. We... More
