Top 5 Faves!Moved here a year ago and I go out almost 6 times a week. I am always looking for a new entry to call "home" in my search for just wonderful restaurants. Never heard of Vero - found it here on OpenTable - looked cute - brought friends and could not have been happier! From the special attention of the staff, to the "wine lessons" for me and my friends, including introductions to new wines - everything was just perfect. I will be back, bringing old friends and new, for this is going to be one of my "Regular" Top 5 Favorites!! In fact, I think I will make a reservation for next week. :-)5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent and theFood was excellent and the service Outstanding.

We were warmly greeted by the owner and were really well looked after by Brian. The food was exceptionally good. After living in France for several years, I really grew to love Branzino. The Vero version was excellent. The burrata starter was also very good. My wife got a special pasta which was also delicious. After looking for a good neighborhood Italian restaurant for so long, it was great to finally find one.
We will be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWE enjoyed the daily special,WE enjoyed the daily special, cod, prepared. The waiter was also great, not over attentive but fun to have around.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSquisito!The burrata was fresh and so tasty, and the spinach salad was perfection.
The Alaskan cod was the special of the evening, simply prepared and highlighting the freshness with a tomato based broth
The duck breast was perfectly grilled and served with roasted fingerling potatoes and Madeira sauce- not too oily or fatty.
Coffee is fresh per order. The desert with crushed cookie and cocoa powder, served with ice cream, missed for us.
The apple crostata was lacking in adequate. apple filling.
Summary: great meal, only let down was the deserts.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVero is our favorite ItalianVero is our favorite Italian restaurant in Palo Alto.
