A word from Verace
This is not like the Italian restaurants you may be used to on Long Island. Verace's menu is designed to incorporate traditional Italian cooking techniques, recipes with modern American twists and fresh, local ingredients. We offer a fantastic selection of meats and cheeses, sliced on our 101 year old Berkel slicer. Start with one of our flatbread pizzas fired in our Woodstone oven or one of our half portions of house made pasta. For your entree, enjoy a full plate of pasta, classics like our Osso Bucco and Shrimp Scampi or Italian American comfort foods like Chicken Parmesan and Veal Marsala. Conclude your dining experience with one of our house made desserts. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Needed more veggies w branzino. Tomatoe sauce needed more flavor "
    Dined on 4/17/2014
  • "I took advantage of my gift card the other night. I ordered the meatball appetizer, which was delicious as usual. I often judge a restaurant by it's meatballs, and this one meets my expectations! The Pasta was fresh and delicious as well, topped with Bolognese sauce. The martini was just as I like it. The service was attentive, without being annoying. All in all, another great experience at this restaurant, making it one of my favorites that I will return to again and again. :)"

  • "Had dinner here the other night. There were 4 of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I had the shrimp scampi which was delicious as was the polenta and the tiramisu. Service was good. We did wait a while for our table. Didn't sit down until 8:30 and we had a 7:45 reservation. Other than that if was a great experience and it really wasn't a big deal bc we enjoyed the wine at the bar. "

  • "Tried something new this time...shrimp scampi over pasta. It was dee-lish! Linguine and clam sauce is my husband's favorite here and spaghetti and meatballs for my daughter. Nice to see such a great crowd on a Monday at a local restaurant. Parents with kids under 5yo should probably bring them before 6p, however. "

  • "We were able to make a reservation online, which was convenient. Each course was excellent. The black olives were the best I've ever tasted. The chicken marsala was tender and the sauce was wonderful, with a perfect combination of flavors. I tasted my husband's carbonara; it was creamy and delicious. The wine selection was good, and we had no problems selecting wine that we both liked. Our waiter was attentive and professional. Overall, we were extremely satisfied with our visit to Verace."

  • "Having enjoyed numerous dinners at Teller's next door (same owners), we had high hopes; those hopes we're soon dashed by mediocre service (we had to track down a busboy to replace utensils used for our appetizers), insipid food (tasteless salad, burned/overlooked entrees), no bread basket...they will not see us again!"

  • "Alison, the manager runs a well oiled gang. She was every where making sure things went smoothly.We were greeted by a very warm and welcoming front desk, including Alison. She helped out behind the bar when a swell of people came in all at once Later I saw her carrying plates to another large group. The food was both delicious and plentiful and came just as we asked. All in all, it was terrific dinning, Excellent food, service and a vibrant bar."

  • "Great food and service at reasonable prices. Have tasty toasted bread to dip into wonderful sauces, but have to ask for it (we did twice). Noise level goes up as crowd fills in."

  • "Overall it was a good experience, however, when we were first seated we complained and asked to be moved, the answer was NO. We were upstairs in the corner, my boyfriend facing the wall. We waited 10 minutes to see our server. We had just decided to leave when the hostess showed up and asked if she could move our seats. We agreed and moved down to the main dining room where it was much more comfortable. The overall experience was okay, we will probably try it again to sit outside. Never saw the hostess after that to follow up with us though."

  • "I had reservation online from their website. That day was my husband's birthday. Not only they let us wait about 20minutes to get a table, but also didn't pay attention to the special request for my husband's bday. I suggest maybe better call in to have your reservation done safer!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "Even with a slight delay in seating my group of four(which did not go unnoticed by the manager and we were comped an appetizer) the atmosphere and food and friendly, knowledgeable service was impeccable. Love this place!"

  • "We love Verace and will continue to return again and again. Food is amazing , service is excellent. Wine selection is great. There is never a rushed feeling. Food quality has always remained consistently above average and is always served hot. My favorite place to eat."

  • "Went for my daughter's birthday. Everything was very nice but the whole place is EXTREMELY NOISY!!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had gotten a gift certificate otherwise we would not have gone out of our way. Reservations, still waited a half hour. Food was above-average. Served very hot, which is a plus considering how busy it was. Service was very good. Very noisy, a little difficult for conversation. As far a expensive, for the price you are paying you would expect atleast salad, soup, or a vegetable with your entree, instead everything is ala carte. Even the people next to us were saying they were still hungry after their dessert. Left satisfied, not full. For Italian food, above average considering there are not many good Italian restaurants around."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was great, service was good, but the dining room format was terrible, it was way to noisy and the tables were too small and close together. Really not the place for intimate dinner."
    Dined on 2/20/2014
  • "I thought the restaurant was relaxing and fun. The service was great, we did not feel rushed and could linger over our coffee. Great place to go!"

  • "Went here on Saturday, 2/15 for my husband's birthday and so glad we did. It was snowing out and we almost canceled, The fireplace was still on outside with the snow coming down and it made for an inviting welcome. Definitely set the mood for the rest of the night. Our t able was ready as soon as we arrived at 6pm. Place was busy but we were treated like we were the only ones there! Staff was great. Food was outstanding. Fried calamari was the best we've had on L.I. (and we go out ALOT). Portions for dinner were perfect. I had shrimp scampi and he had salmon. Shared profiteroles for dessert. We will definitely be back! Looking forward to eating outside in the warmer weather near the fireplace! Great romantic night!!!"

  • "WOW! I am so glad we gave Veraci another try after a terrible experience the first time. What a difference in the food. Service. Ambiance. Etc. They must have had a bad night the first time we went. Place was packed but you werent stuffed in like sardines. Our Waitress was great, the food was delicious. I enjoyed it so much. My husband and I are going back on Saturday. I definitely recommend trying Veraci."

  • "Our overall experience was very good. I liked the food and the service was pretty good. My only complaint is that it is very noisey. Music is loud which I think makes the people try to talk over it."

  • "You just can't beat dinner at verace! This place is awesome! It tends to get expensive so your best bet is saving it for a special occasion. The wine list is phenomenal and the food is to die for. Staff is always friendly and very helpful. Awesome place guaranteed a good time and a great meal!"

  • "I've been to this restaurant many times over the years and it never fails to please! I've had wonderful meals, as have my dining companions. I love the look of this place also. I am definitely going to try the outdoor dining, once it's nice out. It even looked cozy this last visit, despite all the snow!"

  • "Overall, a good dining experience. What was lacking was the food. I felt I could have had bought the same food out of the frozen section of my local supermarket."

  • "My wife and I had an early Valentine's day dinner. As always food and service was great. I will recommend to anyone. May have a good wine list but I am not a wine drinker so I won't know. Outside seating does look nice for the summer."
