We decided to eat at LaVerona
We decided to eat at LaVerona because it was located at the midpoint for everyone in our party and it was well reviewed. Even so, I was surprised by the excellent food and service. We were also happy to find that they had live music on Saturday nights. I'd recommend LaVerona without hesitation.

Outstanding Italian food,
Outstanding Italian food, excellent service, respectable prices and the best people that you can find. And I love that they use table cloths...adds elegance to a really clean restaurant. Jack and Sam, the owners, are to be commended for a fine, good eating quite place. And don't overlook the specials, they are fantastic. We eat often and have never been disappointed.

Good traditional fare
We took my mom and dad here for mom's birthday. It's a good family restaurant, and was not at all crowded on a Friday night. There's no kid's menu, but they make kid's food available (chicken fingers, smaller pasta dishes, etc.). The atmosphere is a bit lacking, but the food was surprisingly good, and our waitress was wonderful, very accommodating. The food is not necessarily plated as a fine gourmet meal, but the taste was outstanding. I would not hesitate to go back.

Great food, service and atmosphere!
On this occasion I was at La Verona for a wine dinner. We used a private room in the back (I hadn't even known it was back there). It was a nice room and conveniently set up. The appetizers were tasty - mushroom and tomato brushetta, stuffed mushrooms and a plate with cheese and crudites. Service was excellent! We stayed for dinner afterwards in the main restaurant. All of use thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the service again was excellent! I got the scallops and my husband got the monkfish - both were delicious.

Great Kennett Dining
In the heart of Kennett Square you'll find this neighborhood gem. Convenient to the Flash and all the art galleries. For a great social experience check out their bar and wonderful appetizers (gourmet pizzas are highly recommended).

The food was exceptional espec the meat marinarro sauce. Everybody enjoyed the meal and the service was also very good The place was very clean and neat. The only thing I can complain about is the bread if it was warm it would have been perfect. Also the bread could have been cut through eliminating the need to pulling off each piece. Other than that I will definitely return sooner then later to enjoy there food choices.

Enjoyable at reasonable price
Found this as they were the only place in the area open on a holiday but was pleasantly surprised by the quality and freshness of the food. It is clear the owner prides himself on what is served and it shows. The only complaint was that the entree came while we were still enjoying the appetizer and had to be warmed. They should let the customers spend more time savoring the food. Prices are moderate but the serving staff could use a little work on being attentive, but a great local place.

My husband and I were looking for a restaurant close to Longwood Gardens. We were going there for a concert. It was a warm, beautiful summer evening, so we ate outside. We definitely go back.

Tasty Local Treat
Just moved into the area and had a late evening craving for Italian. Searched on line and found La Verona. They were open late for dinner and close to home. Menu looked great and the reviews were very good so off we went. Wow! Totally awesome service and excellent food! Compliments to the Chef on creating a wonderful adventure for the palate. My wife went traditional with a veal bolognese and I chose a house special of a beef filet. Just Outstanding! Would recommend to anyone for a great dining experience. We will be back and often! A+++

What a gem!
I selected La Verona for my daughter's 2st birthday celebration based on its proximity to Lincoln University, where she is a student. We rode down from King of Prussia to celebrate with her in the vicinity since she was unable to come home.
What a gem this place is! Our server was solicitous from the moment we arrived. From the light and crispy fried calamari, to the caprese salad with wonderfully fresh and flavorful mozzarella, to my melt-in-your-mouth veal saltimbocca entrée, everything I tasted was delicious. Portions were generous and everyone at the table remarked as to how good the food was. To top it off, it was very reasonably priced. Its about an hour away. But I would absolutely make the trip to dine there again.

This was our third visit to La Verona. We brought friends with us this time. They loved it and so do we. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. The food is consistantly good and the portions are more than generous. We will definitely be back soon.

If you've never had a meal here, you're missing a truly magnificent experience. This is by far the best Italian restaurant in the area. And the specials should be on everyone's list. Jack and Sam are to be commended for a wonderful menu and fantastic food. And if there's something that you want that's not on the menu, just ask and it will be prepared for you to perfection. Keep up the good work. And the rest of you....get up and out and eat here !!!!!

A delight after visiting Longwood
Ten 65+ hungry people met at La Verona at 7:00 PM after a tiering afternoon at Longwood Gardens. we were greeted and seated promptly. Drinks were ordered and served promptly, Soup and salads arrived in a timely, non rush manner, out of the ten dinners served We had about six different selections from fish, veal, and pasta families every selection seemed to be a winner.
Our server and her support staff did an excellent job. We were never rushed or felt neglected. I had dined at this restaurant previously, years ago but it had a different name. (I'm pretty certain of that, but could be wrong). My choice was guided by location and on line reviews, it turned out to be an excellent choice.
