Went here to get a nice dinner before Halloween insanity descended on Salem. My Mum and I both got dishes off the specials menu and what great choices they were! The veal was perfection and my Mum raved about her dish. For the quality and portion sizes, the final bill did not seem right....it was a steal of a meal.... More

I was exhausted after traveling on the red-eye from the West Coast and then exploring the area. I was staying at the Hawthorne Hotel and wanted a delicious dinner and the staff recommended this Italian restaurant across the street. Since I was traveling alone and was tired, I asked if I could get my meal to go and they were... More

Let's be honest -- the food here is barely one notch above canned spaghetti. The only non-bottle wines are a few unidentified and very undistinguished generic choices. Service the night we went was erratic; sometimes friendly, sometimes inattentive. The small dining room has its charms, but for these prices I expect food that actually tastes good. You'll do much better... More

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
