Description: Italian food is sacred and Italian culture revolves around the kitchen and more importantly the food at La Veranda where every dish is crafted with such care and thought. La Veranda is an elegant and cozy restaurant, overlooking the relaxing pool area at the Blowfish Hotel. It serves real Italian food in a bright and quirky ambiance with a breeze of Italian charm. No expense has been spared in La Veranda to ensure that only the finest ingredients are used. From the fresh tomatoes in our homemade tomato sauce to the finely sliced Beef Carpacio di ruccola and our wooden oven succulent pizzas, all our ingredients are carefully selected and imported to give you the best Italian culinary experience in Lagos. We have both indoor and outdoor seating. In addition to pasta and pizza, our menu also offers steak, chicken and salads. Eat-in, take-out and delivery are all available options to suit your needs

4 1/2 years living here in Victoria Island, Lagos, Nigeria and this is the first time I have visited the restaurant. The only reason I went today for lunch was because the manager is babysitting Izanagi's while Bernard is away on a much needed vacation. He asked me why I have not visited the restaurant, even though some of my friends go there. I told him we went there once before (before the Italian restaurant was opened) and it was an okay experience. So today instead of going to Izanagi's for lunch decided to go to La Veranda. The restaurant is small and they need to get rid of the oriental hanging lamps (use to be a Chinese restaurant). They could use a little remodeling but that is just my opinion. I ordered # 11 Insalate Frutto Di Mare which was really nice, also # 16 the Beef Carpacio (which was not to my taste, and I love Carpaccio), my main was #24, simple Aglio Olio, which was great, and a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio (Chilean). They brought out some bread with marinara sauce and a nice flavored butter (think it was mushroom) which was very nice. My waiter was Rael, he was very attentive, not like Lawrence though from Izanagi's...but he was still good and very polite. I like that they have the option of eating outside (under covering) if you want to enjoy the breeze and have shisha. I will go again and take my husband this time or friends. I would recommend the restaurant.

The staff made us feel very welcome and was helpful with food and wine selection. They serve fantastic appetizers on the house. We will definitely be visiting regularly... And they offer a free delivery service! Thumbs up for the best service in Lagos thus far...and we've been here a while. Keep it up.

Out with a couple of friends on a very pleasant July evening in Lagos, we chose to dine at this cosy Italian restaurant - choosing to sit in the own air Verandah. The gentle Atlantic sea breeze was absolutely priceless. Since we were all fresh from an earlier lunch and concentrated on the appetisers. Notable were the Salmon Affumicato ( Smoked), Ginger Bread with Mushroom, Bruschetta and topped up with Tiramidu and Cheesecake. A wonderful chef anxious to please and very attentive staff made for a delightful evening.
