“Wonderful food, great service”
Reviewed March 28, 2008

We were greeted in Italian, something that my Italian-speaking husband really appreciated. Service was prompt and kind, and food was amazing from the first minute, with terrific crispy bread and a wonderful tapenade dip. Loved the eggplant parmigiana, saffron risotto, and the incredible souffles. We left in physical pain from overeating. Will come again and bring relatives.

“The Best Classic Italianfood I've had in years.”
Reviewed February 27, 2008

Feb. 27,2008
We live in the area.
We chose Vero after much debate. Try to please seven people! And did we ever please them. Each of us had a different appetizer and entree and they were all shared and raved about. Not to be missed: the eggplant appetizer with incredible ragu. I had spaghetti Ameritriciani---homemade pasta and such a wonderful sauce. The service was attentive, but not intrusive and the winelist is good. I'm having lunch there today and I can't wait!

“Wonderful Place - Off the Beaten Path”
Reviewed January 29, 2008

Nice surprise! Charming place with a big heart. Service and food are flavorful, wonderful and at a very reasonable price. Off the beaten track, but Palo Alto insiders know this is an up and coming place. Word is out, try it out.

Great place for a business meal with an authentic Italian flare or a romantic chat with someone interesting. Quality service makes for a pleasant atmosphere and it is quiet enough to actually talk and enjoy a carefully prepared meal. Massimo and Antonio are real characters that let you know you are in a special place where good customers are family and they care about you. Simply elegant wines carefully chosen with a value price make the experience full of opportunity to savor the moment.

This is not an add, but sharing my actual experiences as a veteran road warrior who discovered something worth sharing.
