Quaint and traditional
Villa Verone is a quaint Italian restaurant that serves delicious traditional Italian food in a romantic friendly setting. the outdoor seating was unavailable because of rain but I would love to come back to enjoy that setting as well. The menu was full of traditional Italian meals, the portions were generous and the quality was excellent. The service was prompt, friendly and we were treated like friends. The decor is cute and a bit romantic as the setting is in a home converted to a restaurant. There is a nightclub, martini bar upstairs with live entertainment that we heard as we came it. It sounded like everyone was having fun. I would recommend this restaurant for date night or just with friends.

Like stepping into Italy!
We love Villa Verone and go there for all of our special occasions. The history of the building is accentuated by the history on the walls of the Italian family who owns and runs the fantastic restaurant. The outdoor dining area is really lovely too. MUST have: the toasted ravioli appetizer with the meat sauce. It is FANTASTIC! Everyone we have taken to the restaurant asks for another order, so plan ahead and order double! All of the pasta dishes are to die for and we recently had the veal and it was amazing too. Fabio is the server we always request and he is theee best!! Thank you Villa Verone!

Great food & atmosphere
This place is super cute with a lovely old world layout. You would think you are in Italy! Food is great & we had a really good bottle of wine at a reasonable price. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves Italian food.

I went to this restaurant for me and my boyfriend's one year anniversary. Quiet and quaint, this restaurant was both beautiful inside and out and had the most amazing classic Italian dishes. For specials, they had a tortellini filled with veal and had a white wine cream sauce. It was outstanding. Their tira missou and créme brûlée cheesecake are also notable. They're both delicious and are very light. Their staff is also very kind and the service was fast. I am definitely going to return. It's worth it!

My monthly dining group, from
My monthly dining group, from the DeKalb-Sycamore area, has been to the Verone on previous occasions, always with positive results. Friendly, patient, attentive staff, great food. People in my dining group have developed favorites among the Verone's entrees, and even if some of the items are no longer featured on the menu, the server will go out of his way to make sure that it is prepared! We will certainly keep the Verone on our Repeat Visit list!

Beautiful vintage looking
Beautiful vintage looking restaurant, felt like we were in Naples. The service was outstanding and everyone smiles and makes you feel like you are dining at a friends house. The food - oh my - it's the best - we all had something different and loved each dish. The portion sizes were perfect, not too much like some restaurants. Martini selection, hello! - the Tiramisu Martini is great. We will definitely go back, and next time we'll sit in the outdoor section.

Can be a bit crowded and loud during prime business hours especially on the 1st floor. However, there are some quiet and less crowded niches upstairs. Food well above average. Pasta dishes abound.

Our Favorite Restaurant!
We come to Villa Verona as often as we can for their wonderful food and friendly atmosphere. They really do make us feel like family. Our favorite appetizer is the Bruschetta di Spinachi, which is not even on the menu anymore, but they are always glad to make it for us. Their Neapolitan Salad is wonderful. And the menu is full of delicious treats, with new specials every day. Can't wait to go back!

Hidden Gem in Geneva
Not on one of the two Main streets of Geneva, but hidden one street off. Family owned. Great food, ambience and wonderful setting!
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will def come back. Good food, service and very nice neighborhood.
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice and relaxing evening!
We liked the food very much and our wine was a great choice! Friendly and attentive service. We'll be back!
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had made reservations requesting an outdoor table because we LOVE dining in their outdoor garden. You feel like you are on vacation. However, due to rain..... we decided to eat in the bar (the UPPER CLUB). The band was FUN! The bartender catered to our every whim. The owner came over to chat. We drank, we danced, we drank some more, we enjoyed a dessert, we danced a little more. I have to say, having never been upstairs before, I was certainly glad we tried it. As always, the food & service is great. I'm glad we (accidently) found a new place to enjoy some live entertainment! We will certainly be back.

Intimate Hidden Gem
Some of the best Italian food in the suburbs! A small space, to be sure, but if you're in good company, you don't even notice.

Great Restaurant off the main path
Food was phenomenal service was excellent. The bus staff is what made it! Brock truly kept the table in tip top shape! Food was all round great. The Tiramisu was amazing for dessert.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I took a friend to celebrate her new job and a move out of state; she had specifically requested this restaurant because of the menu--none of us had been there before. The food was excellent and the server was very attentive even though the place was very crowded. We had a great farewell dinner.

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
Wonderful restaurant. Downtown Geneva, but a block off the main street so nice, secluded feeling. I've eaten inside once and outside once. Both are very nice -outside is great. Beautiful garden setting including singing canaries. Most recently had the special ravioli, what a delicious blend of flavors. Transports you to Italy.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our first time here, unfortunately. We wish we would have eaten here years ago. The food was very very good. The wine a bit pricey, but overall prices are in line. It's a bit small inside, but we enjoyed the ambience. The calamari appetizer was likely the best weve ever had. Lightly breaded, well seasoned, and very tender. The marinara is perfect. The tiramisu was wonderful. Sam, our waiter, was the best. The "bus boy" deserves to be a waiter. We felt like we were eating with friends, yet we had a romantic dinner and rarely noticed the people nearby. We can't wait to go back.

Outstanding as usual. Willie
Outstanding as usual. Willie (our waiter) was very attentive and very nice. He even treated us to a glass of limoncello to help us celebrate our 36th anniversary.

Villa Verone creates a feeling
Villa Verone creates a feeling of eating in a villa in italy. And the service is provide by a staff that makes you feel like family.
If the weather is good they have a nice outdoor area that is great for a evening meal. Wide selection of traditional italian fair
with a small but focused wine list.

Great food & service was good too! Had a nice table outside.

Great Italian Restaurant
We live in Geneva and had not eaten here in a few years. Over the last few weeks, we have dined her for lunch and dinner. I'm glad we went back as the service and food was exceptional.

Wonderful! Our waiter Dino was both
entertaining and attentive....Enjoyed the whole scenario.

Great Italian Resturant
We sat outside on the patio. Great ambiance but the chairs could have been more comfortable. They were big and wide and I am small and there was no padding, just black iron.Food was excellent although a little pricey..I think a salad should have come with the price of the meal.. the house wine was very good! Would have been nice to hear some music playing, just something low key.

went on a Friday night.....they were so busy got little or no attention at the bar while waiting for our table...bar nees some updating....we were about to walk out until the host came over to seat us....from there it got better...an attentive waiter....good solid Italian food....

Out with Friends
What a wonderful outdoor dining area. The service was excellent, the food superb, it's our "go-to" Italian restaurant in the area.

Great food, good service but way too much noise. This place is louder than most bars.

Al Fresco at its best
I made a reso for Saturday night and was blessed with both an amazing night to eat outside on the patio and awesome food. I ordered the Pollo Saltimbocca and my date ordered the Seafood Caneloni special. They both were simply amazing and went really well with the bottle of Savignon Blanc we ordered. The service was awesome from start to finish. We were greeted and seated by the very pleasant hostess, the waiter was exceptional, and the owner made sure we had a great experience as well.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu and good service!
Not the usual Italian same old same old menu. The specials were really good and the fixed price - a good deal! Service was very good!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great surprise to find a party going on upstairs at Villa Verone's Martini bar when we were in the mood for one! After our excellent meals (my favorite Rotolo makes me drool thinking of it) we headed up for more fun. The atmosphere was charming and the gregarious Pietro Verone had us singing "That's Amore" and more between fun dance sets by Charles and Co. We had a blast and will definitely be going again.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lasagna is awesome!
Our family dined at Villa Verone. Not a great place for kids as they do not have any kids portions available, so you are paying $14 for a plate of pasta for a kid who will maybe eat half. Aside from that, it was lovely. Would not order the cheese ravioli again, but my daughter's lasagna, my son's rigatoni and my husband's chicken vesuvio were all excellent. Will return with friends!
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pre-race Carb Loading
We returned to Villa Verone for a second year of pre-race carb loading. The service and ambiance there are excellent and they always do a great job of catering to the picky needs of 6 runners plus family. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their dinner selection - my Chicken Marsala was divine. We will definitely be back when we are back in town for either the Batavia Half Marathon or Fox Valley race series!!

I choose Ville Verone to take
I choose Ville Verone to take my wife to for our first anniversary. We found another couple there for thier 19th, another for thier 30th and yet another for thier 50th! this is a great place for special ocations, the service is always outstanding and the food gets better every time I've been. I very much would like to see the sirloin tip special become a part of thier regular menue it was the best I've ever had. Even my wife who is a picky eater found plenty to choose from and enjoyed the romatic atmosphere.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good meal with excellent service. We had three different entrees and all were very good..

Magnificant Italian at Villa Verone
Girls Weekend! 3 of my best friends from Michigan came into town to visit for the weekend and we shopped in Geneva all day and ended the evening with a wonderful dinner at Villa Verone. We started with a cocktail at the bar and had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Pietro - what a great personality! Dinner was fabulous - 2 of us had the ravioli w/meat sauce (excellent choice), 2 had the specials of the night (lobster ravioli & meal lovers special). Everything was tasty, appetizers and entrees. EXCELLENT CHOICE FOR DINNER!! I stop here whenever I'm in the area for lunch because I know the food will always be fabulous!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great food; relaxed atmosphere
Quaint Italian restaurant location on a side street off the main thoroughfare in Geneva. Plenty of menu choices and several daily appetizer and entree specials. The daily special entree I enjoyed on the 29th was outstanding. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing. Have recommended this restaurant several times already and will continue to do so. Looking forward to my next visit.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM

Ejoy it being a nice area and in the neighborhood

Great overall experience!
We enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the staff. Our waiter was so friendly and knowledgeable!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Villa Verone is one of my favorite restaurants and therefore I wanted to once again celebrate my birthday here. As usual, the cuisine was excellent and Dino, our server was superb! He was my server several years back when I celebrated my birthday with a large group of my girlfriends! My boyfriend and I love the ambience, but do think the main room upstairs is a bit loud. We'd recommend Vila Verone for any dining occasion, whether it be special or just a Saturday night out on the town. Thank you for another enjoyable dinner!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
It is very hard to find a nice place around the Dekalb area for true fine dining but Villa Verone was fantastic. The food was great and very traditional Italian but it was also reasonably priced which is hard to find. The servers were great very fun and fast. Overall Villa Verone is definitely one of my new favorites and my wife and will being going back soon!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Villa Verone is not new, but it's off the main drag and quaintly tucked away a few steps from Main Street. The food is wonderful with atmosphere to match. Definitely recommend this restaurant and if you've been here, time to revisit.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Will be coming back!
Very enjoyable. The food was very good and we look forward to trying other menu items.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We will return but....
The food and the service was outstanding. The only negative is that the tables are too close together causing patron and servers to have to squeeze in between most of them. Although there are 2 floors, the place is small but it is charming. I don't see how it could accommodate a large group but perhaps there is party room of which I am not aware. We have been there twice and will definitely return for the food, service and charm. We'll just overlook the tight space.

Villa Verone offers a nice
Villa Verone offers a nice selection of Italian dishes. But the main reason my family enjoys eating at Villa, is the very friendly service.
Many restaurants say they treat you like family, they really do at Villa. The dining rooms have a feel of eating in someones home
which adds to the charm.

We recently went to Villa Verone for my daughers 18th birthday. The food and service was outstanding.

Dine & Dance
This is a place where you can enjoy and ENTIRE evening, great food, dancing in the upstairs lounge. The owner makes it very entertaining with his singing that makes the crowd feel like family !!
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there for lunch. Absolutely wonderful food, service and ambiance. Must keep this on my go-to place for luncheons. Usually have gone for dinner only.
