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

Romantic dinners in a cozy atmosphere. Delicious pasta and wonderful attentive service. The prices were moderate but fair.

My friends and I love Bella Verona especially for the homemade pasta, oh so good! The pasta ravioli filled with pumpkin is wonderful in the Autumn. This restaurant is like being in Italy! Love the food, people and surroundings.

We walked in and picked a table in a corner. There were a few tables already taken but it wasn't crowded. What we did have was a extra loud table next to us. They all had a few bottles of wine that they shared and they made sure everyone heard that and how much their bill was and how they... More

Sorry to hear you had a bad time at bella verona. When you walked in and the restaurant was not busy you seated yourselves next to a loud table. Too bad you did not ask to be moved. Your wine was good and neither one of you seemed to enjoy your entrees nor our deserts. I think the big. Loud... More

If you love Italian you need to stop here. The staff is friendly and I loved the atmosphere and the music they were playing. It's a very small place but they were still able to accommodate a party of 10. The food, of course, was delicious and hot. Spaghetti with tomato sauce, cheese, and mozzarella and a ziti with a...

Visited this restaurant after being recommended. The place is tiny, but the atmosphere is very Italian, with small crowded tables. Bread served with plain oil was skimpy, although we did get seconds. The food is good, but not out of this world good. Portions are on the small side, and prices are on the expensive side. Staff was attentive. Not... More

Service is very good, food still good but not "wow" like last couple visits to Salem. I confirm some of the recent reviews of the food being OK.

Previous reviews have said the restaurant ranged from excellent to average. Put me in the average range. The restaurant is very small with only about ten tables. So if you don't like to be tight you will feel uncomfortable there. Food was just OK, probably and I say this surprisingly on the bland side. There were six of us and... More
