My husband and I went to Salem to enjoy the fall festivities and learn about the history of Salem. Friday night, October 14, 2016 in a random search of good restaurants, Bella Verona was first to pop up on the yelp list. As I looked at the picture and saw five stars below it, I advised this was the restaurant... More

Our waiter was rather unattentive, but the food was great! We stayed at the Hawthorn, this place was right next door-super convenient. The pasta was homemade, the veggies were fresh-I would go back again!

I can't believe I never thought to write a review for my favorite restaurant until tonight. My family has been coming to Bella Verona for over a decade, and I can honestly say we are always, always impressed with the food - I do mean always! The atmosphere is quiet, cozy and relaxed. The owner Giorgio is almost always there,... More

During Columbus Day weekend (Saturday) we decided to visit Salem for the fun of Fall & Halloween. Most restaurants had hour + waits but we found this place online and happened to be only one block away. We looked at their menu on their own website and decided to go here. The prices were reasonable and when we called, were... More

We ate every last bite! We go here every October and it's always busy, but always delicious. Romantic, and charming.

Discovered this gem Tuesday while staying at the Hawthorne hotel across the street. Owner Giorgio is hands on. Service by Todd and Devin is impeccable. Stuffed artichoke appetizer to die for. Tagliatelle entrees tasteful and plentiful. Wine selections are great.j It was so good we went back last night! Baked calamari with polenta was an excellent appetizer. Veal Osso Bucco... More

The food is good and the restaurant is totally charming however, it's really unacceptable when you have a reservation to end up waiting for 45 minutes past your reservation to be seated. I'm writing this because we've been to this restaurant 3 times now and have had to wait on every occasion that we've dined there. I want to like... More

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
