My husband and I visited La Verona again - our first visit was more than a year ago. We were disappointed the first time - way undercooked pasta which was then replaced by very overcooked pasta. Anyhow, this time, I ordered a Caesar salad, which arrived at the table at room temperature on a HOT salad plate. No kidding. I was stunned. It was bad enough when our server, a young woman, removed the extra wine glasses by reaching from the empty seat next to me right across my body, across my face, from my left, to get it (I wanted to grab her - her shoulder was inches from my face), but the extra warm salad was literally gross. When she returned to ask me how it was, I said 'it's warm, the plate was hot, the romaine is room temperature and this salad should be ice cold,' she said she'd take it back and inform the chef. But SHE'S the one who carried the hot plate to the table! I had to ask her for fresh ground pepper for the salad.My husband ordered lasagna and I ordered veal parmesan. The lasagna was really flat, small, and uninspired. It was just plopped on the plate, no parsley, no nothing. Really ugly, plain, like the chef didn't care about presentation. My veal was served right on top of fettucine which didn't have near enough sauce on it, and there was very little mozzarella on the veal. The veal was very dry - overcooked. Totally disappointing. Overall, La Verona's menu is very limited, they have a real problem with food prep, and I really question any positive reviews - Kennett has very few good restaurants, and what passes for good in Kennett would be considered barely mediocre in Philadelphia or New York. Buyer beware. I see one reviewer said it's 'quiet.' Maybe that's because nobody's going here. When we were there, on a Saturday night at 7 pm, it was about 70% empty. Hmmmm ... Bottom line - Kennett just doesn't have great restaurants, and La Verona hasn't changed that. This isn't Philly or New York, and until expectations in this area demand better quality food, the La Veronas will continue to pop up, then close.
