Sister and I celebrated my birthday last Thursday at La Verita. Our 2nd visit and equal to our 1st. Our charming server Adam and all others treated us and all guests like famiglia! The caesars arrived quickly, were spot on and went down easily. Now the food. App of fried calamari was very generous, perfectly cooked, crispy melt in your mouth rings and plenty of the crispy tentacles to make me happy, with a timbale of marinara sauce and lemon wedges. We both opted for the asparagus mascarpone soup and with the home made focaccia could’ve stopped there. Sister’s white veal lasagna was layers of pasta studded with peas, veal reduction, béchamel sauce, prosciutto, rich with flavour. My osso bucco was crazy good. Big bone full to the rim with unctuous marrow and tender, moist meat on a bed of risotto in a rich tomato based sauce. Could only manage eating the marrow and a half of the small osco bucco. The leftovers were delish Friday lunch! The wonderful people at La Verità sent us a nutello tiramisu with a sparkler. We tasted it but were too full. Also comped my sister with a cappuccino. And the final smile, Adam sang me happy birthday. One of the West Islands best restaurants. Can’t wait to return.

We were 4 celebrating my bestie’s mom’s birthday at La Verita, all of us first timers. The feeling was unanimous, every aspect of our visit was memorable. We all had different mains and everyone practically licked their plates clean. All meals come with soup or salad and we all enjoyed the stratciatella soup, homemade well seasoned chicken broth with lacy egg throughout. Birthday girl enjoyed a 3 scallop appie sitting in a small pool of a creamy sauce that she loved and didn’t offer us a taste of. Mains were off menu osso bucco, veal marsala, gnocci in a bacon cream sauce and deer medallions in a rich reduction sauce. Everyone was really happy with their mains, except veal marsala who said it was ok but would order differently next time. They surprised birthday girl with a delicious nutella tiramisu (100% polished!) and the 3 of us polished a raspberry lemon creamy cheesecake in a parfait dish, could’ve eaten 2 of them, myself! Each of us would recommend La Verita for any occasion. Besides the great meal, the way everyone made us feel like we were the most important people in the restaurant guarantees we will be back sooner rather than later.

We celebrated my husbands birthday was the first time for both of us. The service and food was outstanding the lobster ravioli was to die for. The short rib and shrimps were also excellent. Service was excellent as well. My only complaint was there was a screeching baby the whole time. This is a fine dining gourmet restaurant and I just cannot understand who would bring a screeching baby to ruin everyone’s experience....

I’ve eaten here twice and the only complaint I would have is that the daily specials are not written down but rather recited by the staff and they don’t tell you the prices.

Tommy, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. He was attentive and gave us excellent service. My sister and brother-in-law drove from the south shore and said it was worth the drive. My brother-in-law loved the Italian Wedding Soup and said it is the best one he ever tasted. The jumbo shrimps and salmon were excellent. The carrot cake as well as the tiramisu were delicious. It was our second time eating at La Verita. We will definitely be back and will recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

Overall the evening was acceptable. A few areas that were not up to my standards included a kir royale that didn’t taste that great and the soup that was served like warm.
Other than that, the rest was as expected.

Great food. Place is always busy and at times you can get forgotten by their wait staff...which isn’t the case in truly great restaurants. Better training or management is required. But I have eaten here 15+ times and I will continue to visit.
