“Breakfast was great!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

On our last day shop keepers told us to go to Cafe Vero for breakfast. I wish I had known about this restaurant earlier in our trip. The place is small but the food is really good. The price is really reasonable and the value terrific I highly recommend this place for a hearty very good breakfast or lunch.

“Decent food, poor service”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

After an unsatisfactory experience last summer - we had pre-arranged for a birthday party for 12, only to arrive to find nothing had been prepared, no record of our reservation, a kitchen that couldn't get 12 meals out at even close to the same time (when the restaurant was practically empty) - we decided to give them another try this summer.
We made reservations for 4 several days in advance, left our phone number, and when we showed up - on time - again they had no record of our reservation and this time no table available for more than an hour - although there were many empty tables - and they were not even apologetic.
So we went across the street to the Lakeside Grill, got a table within 15 minutes, and had a very good dinner with lovely service. We won't be back to Caffe Vero anytime soon!

“Very good choice in Bolton”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We recently dined here for the first time and were very pleasantly surprised. This area does not have a huge number of great dining establishments, but this definitely surpassed our expectations. We ate fairly light, but the bread & basil oil they provided were very good, and everyone's entrees were thoroughly enjoyed. We were with our young daughter and they had a nice kids menu (recited, not written) that she very much enjoyed. We will absolutely be back! (But only on a Wednesday through Sunday - I believe they are still closed Mondays & Tuesdays so be sure to check their schedule.)

“Excellant Restaurant”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

We loved the Mussel appetizer and the Shrimp entrée was also outstanding. This was our first evening in the area and we decided we were going to eat here on our last evening three days later. Again we had a great meal.

“Fabulous Italian food!!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Yesterday we were walking around Bolton landing looking for a place to eat and stumbled across this gem. We started off with a meat and cheese sample dish the kunik cheese was my favorite! For appetizers we all shared the stuffed pepper, bruschetta, and tuna tar tar. We were all very pleased but we were blown away with our entrees!!! I had the stuffed pork chop ( stuffed with smoked prosciutto asiago) and the fava parm mashed was out of this world, my girl friend has the bolognese with fresh house made pasta she loved it! My buddy chose the veal with wild mushrooms he said it melted in his mouth. His girlfriend had the fungi misto (wild mushrooms in a porcini cream served with the house made fettuccini) we will def be back again before the end of our visit this week so we can try more of the delicious menu options!! This place is A definite must try!!!!
