“Traditional Italian by the river.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2011

Very good food in a beautiful riverside setting. I would particularly recommend the grilled calamari appetizer. The roasted red peppers were also good. The osso buco was very good. Service was attentive without being overbearing.

“Used to be good - not any more”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2011

Went to La Veranda for our anniversary dinner. It started with the menu which had a few misspellings on it - the worst was spelling broccoli "rape" instead of rabe.

Salad was OK, soup was good. The waiter took our order for wine when the entree came and he didn't bring the wine until our meal was almost over.

I had veal stuffed with mozzerella in a tomato, mushroom and pea sauce. My entree came with the sauce thrown onto the meat (not nicely poured) and a sprig of parsley on the side. I couldn't even find the mozzerella. It came with a side of 2 thin slices of potato and about two tablespoons of broccoli rabe.

We will never go back.

“LaVeranda, What an exquisite dining experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2010

My mother and I were treated like royalty from the mement that we entered the restaurant. There was a menu with a large variety of choices. Our dinners were delicious and served with class. The view of the river and the bridge were an added attraction!

“*** Gangster like Atmosphere ** Notaplace for a family or romance”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2009

I have been to the restaurant twice.. the atmosphere is very thug, "gangster" like in atmosphere... from the valet guys (Not professional at all" ) to the poor service at the bar while we waited for over an hr for a table.

Not a recommended restaurant....
