La Veranda Osteria
Good food but slow serviceGreat food as usual - pastas are always done to perfection - but the service was very slow.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood variety, good quality.Excellent service, busy but family run style restaurant. Staff were friendly and attentive and the food quality was high especially considering the extent and variety in to menu.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighourhood find!Loved the food and the fact that offer gluten free pastas is a definite plus. The service was great, even though the place was very busy everything arrived in a timely manner.
This was my first time for dinner, their lunch menu is also great and service was swift and polite.
I did find it a bit loud with all of the families dining but for a great dinner out close to home it's perfect.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time and Loved It!We had seen the restaurant many times but had never dropped in before. The menu was extensive, as well as the wine list (with numerous choices for a single glass or 1/2 litre). The staff were very friendly and the service was excellent. They prepared 2 special antipasto plates for the 4 of us, one meat/cheese and one veggie. We all had different pasta dishes - fresh, al dente and delicious, and none of us could resist indulging in dessert too. The lemon gelato swirled with Limoncello was a big hit.
What we liked most about the restaurant (besides the food) was the friendly, welcoming atmosphere. This is a happy group of people and they want you to be happy with your dining experience as well! We will definitely be going back.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSolvangWe were a group from work and there was not one complaint about any of the food - the appetizers - (especially the mushrooms were amazing) - everyone enjoyed their main course (and even were still talking about it the next morning) - and the desserts right down to the coffee were delicious. Definitely would go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBlendLa Veranda Osteria has the magic touch to blend all the elements that make lunch perfect. I often meet west-end clients and work colleagues at La Veranda. I take the subway to the Royal York Station. They drive in from Oakville, Guelph, Mississauga, wherever, and conveniently park at the Green P across from the restaurant. I have not had any one say anything but great things about La Veranda, many adding that they will return during the evening and/or weekends with their spouse or significant other.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciosoTook my mom here for an early Mother's Day dinner and we had a great time. Most of the staff are delightful and the great personalities match the vibrant food.
The main course was delicious I recommend the pollo alla Gorgonzola con fungi - trust me its worth breaking your diet for.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
