Diner Reviews
  • "We went Saturday night and I was glad we had reservations because it was packed. The food was exceptional. I'm so very happy that they changed their menu. They still have the same items they had but they've added many great items to their menu. The service was great also."

  • "We are somewhat regular at Villa Verone - love the food and the staff. However, this past Saturday our service was not what we have become used to at Villa Verone. Slow and somewhat inattentive - not at all the norm. Certainly won't stop us from going back but hope it was just a one time occurence."

  • "Villa Varone has it all! Great food, wonderful ambiance, colorful servers, and Pietra! After having a very nice relaxed dinner, we retired to the lounge to dance the night away. I only wish the dance floor was bigger, but then there were be less foom for patrons to sit an enjoy."

The food is Outstanding- Fresh Bread, crisp salad, Great Appetizers & Entrees. Desserts are special. Don't miss the 'Upper Club' a great, fun Bonus for us.Non-stop entertainment. We are telling our friends!"

  • "the service was very good, took a long time to get the entrée but it was worth the wait. My only complaint would be that the tables are very close together, so close that the waiter could not move between seated diners and had to walk totally around"

  • "One of my top favorite Italian Restaurants in the fox valley area. I would recommend it to everyone."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "My husband and I have been here twice and both times we were seated in a small corner where all of the tables were in use, yet the restaurant was completely open. And the noise level was very high. The most recent time we dined, my husband entrée and my entrée were fair at best. For the price of the food and the disappointment this last time, next time we will opt for another restaurant instead. However, wait staff was very friendly and food came out quickly."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "The service for me was the highlight. Professional, human, and with that you can feel the passion by the majority of the staff. Food was great. Only "negative" would be the drinks, they're not on par with the service and food quality."

  • "Always a fun dining experience. The owner is usually walking around chatting with the guests. On this particular visit, there was an anniversary and a birthday being celebrated. The owner had the entire restaurant sing Happy Birthday! Very good, "like grandma's home cooking"!"

  • "We really enjoyed this cute little Italian restaurant. The food was very good (the bread was so- so). I got the potato gnocchi which was delicious. The server was good... although I got the feeling he was annoyed when we didn't order drinks or dessert. The owner was there and was attentive which was cool. Overall we enjoyed it."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Outstanding food from an extensive menu featuring a variety of pasta, seafood and veal selections. Service was prompt and attentive and our party four praised different menu selections -- tilapia, lasagna, veal and Chicken Vesuvio. Portions were generous. Restaurant offers a prix fixe option from appetizer through desert that includes a bottle of wine per couple. Restaurant is housed in what appears to be a former home, lending a warm atmosphere and also offers a martini bar. Excellent, reasonably priced place for classic Italian food."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My wife and I went here for Valentine's day. They had a fixed price option with one appetizer, 2 entrees, 1 desert and a bottle of wine. We also had a cocktail in their upstairs lounge which was very nice and had good service. The wait staff here was good, a little slow but it was a holiday. The food was excellent, tasted homemade. We ordered chicken vesuvio and tri-colored pasta with goat cheese sauce and chicken. For desert we got tiramisu. Only criticism I have was when we first sat down at our table and put my hand on the chair to sit down I was greeted with pasta sauce. I'm sure it was an honest mistake, but uncomfortable nonetheless. Also, would have liked the waiter to refill our wine glass, we had to do it ourselves."

  • "I've only eaten at Villa Verone once before, at the now gone Sycamore location, and chickened out and played it safe with Fettuccine Alfredo. I decided to take my girlfriend for her first Valentine's Day date. I got the Pollo Parmigiana and she got the Cavatelli Casarecci. We both loved the food. The restaurant was crowded, but not in a bad way. It felt friendly, and energetic. Our server was friendly and not pushy at all. We will definitely come back again."

  • "I thought about Villa Verona for Valentine's Day after my sister recommended it as a nice date spot. Everything was top-notch, from the food, to the service and to top it off, dancing upstairs in the 'Martini Bar'. The Family Reunion band started out a bit mellow (WNUA 'Smooth Jazz'), but by the end of the first set, they started playing songs we could dance to. And being Valentine's Day, we wanted to dance! The owner is a hoot--he used his laptop for the background music as he serenaded us to a variety of music--all suited for dancing. The bar is large and there are plenty of tables that are close enough, but not on top of the band. I can't recommend it enough for a dinner, dessert (we had a fabulous chocolate cake), drinks and dancing."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "My second visit to this restaurant. We went on Valentine's Day, and I worried we would have to wait for our table, and that they would have a limited menu as many other restaurants had. Neither happened. Our table was ready on time, the four or us all loved our food, and our waiter was great. We didn't get a chance to check out their bar, but I have heard it's a lot of fun. We will definitely be going back, and soon!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Waiter was great! Food is fresh and reasonable portion for lunch."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "We love the feel of this place. The specials are lovely, the service is wonderful, and it feels like you could be at a family home in Italy with the owner/manager making sure everyone is happy. I like the downstairs seating more (upstairs is brighter) for a romantic dinner, but upstairs was boisterous and filled with families and friends celebrating milestones with good food and drink. Don't miss the Geneva gem and don't even think of trying to find a better Italian food experience elsewhere!"

  • "My wife and i went for a early weekend supper. The wait staff was very attentive of course there were only 3 couples in the restaurant. For some reason they put all 3 couples in a side room that was only about 8 feet square. The rest of the restaurant was empty! Well onto the food. We were disappointed. I had chicken marsala, the flavor of the sauce wasn't there. Serving size was fine but the flavor wasn't. My wife's linguini alfredo same story. I asked a question about a wine on their list and was responded to with a little snide chortle preceding the answer. In short, we'll keep looking for a good Italian restaurant."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "The service was amazing, the food was delicious, listening to the band in the bar and dancing after dinner was a great time! I had one of the specials, the crab filled ravioli and my date had the rigatoni - both were fantastic. For desert we had the homemade tiramisu which was excellent. I can't say enough about this place - we will definitely go back and bring friends the next time!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "Villa Verone is cozy but loud because of the small space. The music is always top notch, however there. are very few tables/bar stools available. By 9pm on a Sat. night there was no possible way to stay and enjoy the band. My advice is to reserve one of the few tables early!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Food was excellent. Service also very good. Tables too close in main dining area. Mixed drinks were poor. Bar service also slow while waiting for table. I plan to try again at some point since the food was good."
