“Excellent Italian Cuisine”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

I have travelled the world and dined at many outstanding Italian cuisine restaurants. Bella Verona shares many of the characteristics that make a restaurant an excellent dining experience.
The atmosphere is intimate and comfortable, the service is personal and attentive, and the cuisine is varied and delicious. The quality and preparation of the food is outstanding and the presentation is aesthetically pleasing. The wine selection is fabulous and the price is quite reasonable for such an excellent dining experience. My family and I were suitably impressed and would wholeheartedly recommend a visit.

“New Favorite Dinner Spot”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

The best Italian restaurant in Salem!
From the moment you walk in until the time you leave ...eccellente!

The restaurant is beautifully decorated I felt like I was back in Italy with my husband.
We were greeted by an Italian man and his beautiful wife and they sat us right away in what seemed like the best table in the house! I think they were probably the owners-They were the perfect hosts.

Our waitress was introduced a minute later (we thought she looked like that actress Natalie Portman) She gave us a breakdown of the specials on this really cute little chalk board
(very clever) and brought us a carafe of wine to share, it was perfect.
Service was impeccable. She was attentive the whole time and we appreciated her knowledge of the menu from top to the bottom. She kept the flow of our dinner going perfectly throughout the night too!


We started with a Bella Verona salad. It was so fresh and had potatoes, mozzarella, tomatoes, eggs and grilled chicken. It was delicious!
To add to it they brought us this warm bread from heaven.
I say if the restaurant offers good bread right from the beginning- it's a good sign it's going to be a good dinner- I was right!!!

Our dinner was sooooo delicious! My husband and I found ourselves eating off each others plates and feeding each other, the combined flavors and textures perfectly complemented each other. The ambiance was romantic and the Italian music delightful. I couldn't have asked for a better date night.

THANK YOU BELLA VERONA!

We will definitely be back, reservation for next week?

Reviewed July 17, 2014

The food and service go beyond the typical neighborhood restaurant. There is an attempt to customize dishes to individual needs. Enjoy!

“Delicious”
Reviewed July 12, 2014 via mobile

I had authentic pasta Bolognese here that was fantastic. Really small but worth the cramped quarters. Food and ambience are great.

“Authentic Italian!”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

Over a two week period in New England, we ate at several Italian places; Bella Verona was by far the best. The food served there is as good as what you get in Italy and the intimate setting is perfect.
There was also a good level of service.
Definitely recommended if in Salem.
