Diner Reviews
  • "It was really crowded, preventing any intimate atmosphere, but outside dining might have been better. In the beginning our waters were filled after every sip, but during the meal, my glass went empty many times. My husband was given a glass with lipstick on it, officially losing one star rating. Food was ok, but nothing spectacular."

  • "My family and I have enjoyed Villa Verone for 20 years now and it's absolutely our favorite restaurant in the Fox Valley. Whether we go for a special family occasion or just a nice night out for good food, Pietro and his wait staff - particularly Dino - always welcome us as if we are family. VV's food and service are impeccable, and their prices are very fair. If you order a pasta or a meat or fish dish you'll never be disappointed - the food is of consistently high quality. Once my wife and I planned to enjoy dinner out at VV but at the last minute she did not feel well. I called the restaurant and Pietro was happy to pack up a wonderful meal of all of our favorites, to go."

  • "Villa Verone is wonderful, outside eating is so pleasant, wonderful attentive wait staff. Food was excellent, if small on the portion side. The same is true of the martinis, well made and excellent but small.... a bit pricey for the amount of what you get , but a very nice relaxing enjoyable evening of dining ."

  • "I found this restaurant from Open Table, would never have found it on my own, as it was on a side street from the main drag of Geneva, IL. It was fantastic! Everyone was so personable and accommodating, even heard one of the owners/managers say 'fuhgetaboutit' and it was hilarious, felt like I was at a little restaurant in Naples. Italy! Tremendous food, just the right amount, bread was awesome and plentiful, wine was served in a chilled wine glass which I appreciated. Although it is a little pricier than we usually spend on a Wed. night, it was worth it and we will be back for another special occasion or two!"

  • "I really like the atmosphere of this restaurant. It is family owned. It is located in a cute neighborhood in what looks like a old house. It is not too big. Food is freshly prepared and very good. Prices are reasonable. Love sitting outside in nice weather. Definitely recommend this restaurant."

  • "Good wine selections were apparent plus food was darn good without killing you with massive portion sizes. Old converted house has a great atmosphere and was quiet, so you didn't have to shout across the table to have you friends hear you. Was on pricey side but I thought still well worth it for us, but they should see and extra dollar sign on the ratings. Plan on about $60/head if you do a bottle of wine, an appetizer, a couple salads, entrees, and coffee afterward. We would go back;)"

  • "My wife and I went there not expecting anything special and boy were we wrong. Best dinner we have had in months. Pietro (the owner) was fantastic and incredibly social. Food was excellent and we ate our fill for $90 for the two of us on a Fixed Price menu. Then we danced the night away upstairs with a live Motown band that was also excellent! Cannot recommend Villa Verone highly enough!! Authentic, lots of character and characters. A joy!"

  • "We had a wonderful evening. Celebrating our 45th anniversary, we enjoyed the 2 person special which includes one appetizer, any 2 entrees, a bottle of wine and a desert to share! Service was perfect!"

  • "We happen to like the ambiance, albeit a bit tight in the dining areas. We've always enjoyed the food. This time, there was a large group crammed into the middle of the dining area that made it almost uncomfortable, with even the wait staff struggling to get by chairs and people. I also felt that the wine was overpriced for some of the selections. I understand expected markups, and even felt the price range was in line with other restaurants. Some of the choices however, appear to be marked up much more than what I believe is normal ... thus I ordered a lower quality bottle of wine than I might have, but paid no less. It won't keep me from returning, as I am hopeful this visit was an anomaly. We have always enjoyed Villa Verone."

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Villa Verone. Dino in the dining room provided excellent service, the food was great, and, as good as all that was, the live entertainment in the martini bar upstairs might have stole the show! Highly recommend!"
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Great food, and lovely outdoor dining away from the street. They went out of their way to make sure we could sit outside on this beautiful evening. My veal was some of the best I've ever had. It's a family restaurant, and thus, has an individuality and charm to it that others lack. "

  • "Sitting outside with caged songbirds singing, one is very relaxed. The drinks and food come at a comfortable pace. The portions generous, the presentation attractive, and the food good. My only complaint was the service as we finished. Seemed not enough wait staff to finish paying the check, as we sat far too long waiting to leave. We will go back, because, as a whole, it was a relaxing, good eveningS"

Found this restaurant by chance and cannot wait to go back. Did not have an opportunity to visit the bar/band area; but, will definitely go back to check it out. "

  • "FOOD AND SERVICE ARE THE BEST!! ALL FOOD IS HOMEMADE AND MADE TO ORDER. THE RAVIOLI AND GNOCHI ARE OUTSTANDING AND THEY WILL MAKE WITH ANY TYPE OF SAUCE. WE ALSO HAD A SHELL FISH COMBO W/PASTA THAT WAS EXCELLENT. THE APPETIZER'S AND SALAD'S WERE DELISH! WHEN IT COMES TIME FOR DESSERT YOU WILL WANT ONE OF EVERYTHING! WINE, ESPRESSO, CAPPUCCINO ALL EXCELLENT. THIS IS A GREAT LITTLE HIDEWAY THAT IS JUST OUTSTANDING!"

  • "My wife and I enjoyed this quaint neighborhood restaurant. The food was good, not great. We enjoyed the small room we were in. It was nicely decorated and offered the ability to talk quietly. Unfortunately the waiter was less than attentive. We actually ended up asking the bus boy to help us three separate times. We could not figure out why our waiter didn't check on us more frequently, because the place was not that busy yet. I would certainly recommend Villa Verone as a nice place for an average date-night. Maybe it was just an off-night for the waiter."

  • "While Villa Verone offers great food and drink at reasonable prices, what makes it special is Pietro and his staff. Pietro is continually and diligently working to accommodate his patrons as though they were family. He is passionate about creating a fun and memorable experience for every one by greeting every one with a smile, telling a joke or singing a song. Thanks Pietro, Angelo"

  • "Appetizers we had were great! My wife and I both ordered pasta seafood dishes and found the shrimp to be a little over cooked in both dishes. I was a little nervous ordering pasta as I am usually disappointed with the sauce, but it was just like what Mom used to make which made up for the overcooked shrimp. Yes, the sauce was that good! We shared the Tiramisu which was also delicious as well."

  • "My wife and I dined on a Saturday evening. Service was very attentive, maybe even overly so, if that's possible. We definitely enjoyed the live music and dancing in the bar after dinner."
