“Lock it up”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

I was on jury duty and a couple of us were loking for a place to eat and we stumbbled across Cafe Verona. It is a delightful cafe in the middle of Independence, the staff was very friendly and the food was great. They even altered a dish that one of us requested. They have a lot of lockes on there front gates and we asked about it and the waitress told us you can bring a lock and put your significant others and your name on it, lock it on their gates and throw away the key to signify that your love is locked in forever. How cute is that? I can't wait to come back with my husband and bring a lock. That lunch hour was very pleasant to an otherwise unpleasant esperience like jury duty. Check it out and bring a lock.

“Fresh Italian with authentic flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a well priced, authentic Italian restaurant. The menu is varied, but thankfully not very large. They do what they do well. The evening's special was obviously something that the Chef wanted to cook that day and enjoyed doing, not an afterthought using leftovers like at many places.

“Great Restaurant in Historic Independence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Cafe Verona is a very cute restaurant on the Historic Independence Square. Their food is reasonably priced; they have great red and white sangrias and a wonderful outdoor seating area. The Sausage Rosa pasta is over the top good. Also, it s fun to walk around this historic area after dinner. A much try!!

“Great atmosphere and food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband and I first visited Cafe Verona after our engagement pictures in Kansas City in December. There was a long wait in every restaurant we tried in KC so a friend recommended this cute little Italian restaurant in Independence. We were not disappointed! The food was delicious and atmosphere was perfect! When we decided to fly out of KC for our honeymoon, we knew we had to stop for dinner at Cafe Verona on our way to our hotel. Again we were very pleased by the food and atmosphere!
