We had the ravioli and the veal saltimbocca. Both very good. The back room is a little dark. Our waitress was wonderful.

We wanted to relax on Friday evening and reserved a table, asked to sit outside. The weather was perfect. The waitress was very attentive. The food and drinks arrived quickly so that we could talk and enjoy ourselves. We both had one of the specials, one beef, one seafood. Both were very tasty and done properly. I would highly recommend this restaurant, it will not disappoint.

Stay away, first, parking is a challenge so allow time to find a spot or a lot before your reservation. If you are feeding a meter, allow for an hour and a half as that’s how long our two course meal service took. If you want desert you’d better allow two hours. If the food had been good, this would’ve been tolerable as we were not pressed for time, however the temperature of the food when presented and the quality/flavors/visual appearance we all poor. One positive note, our server was delightful and it was clear she was at the mercy of the back of the house.

I don’t write very many reviews but my meal tonight was above and beyond my expectations. Italian food has really been commercialized but not here. Eating the homemade pappardelle bolognese took me right back to Italy. It was actually hand made pasta made right there in their kitchen. Highly recommend getting this. Also had great dessert, my wife said it was the best tiramisu she ever had. Our waitress was also great. She always made sure we had everything we needed and kept our glasses full. Will be returning soon and sitting outside, it looks really nice out there too!

What a find!! I can’t say enough how awesome this place was! From the moment we walked in the staff was friendly and so welcoming. We had some spectacular cocktails and you can tell that the bar tender is very well trained. Not too strong that you can’t enjoy the drink but enough to know you aren’t getting ripped off.
Our waiter was amazing. He knew the menu and specials inside and out and helped us pick a bottle of wine for the table to. The appetizers were so good. If you like artichoke, get it and you won’t be able to stop eating it (we ordered a second). Our food came out hot and as ordered (we had a vegetarian and a gluten-free fried with us) and the chef even came out to check that everything was okay. It was fabulous. We also didn’t feel rushed when we stayed for dessert and another drink. You can tell it’s a popular place and now we know why. Hands down the best Italian food around and not over priced like some other places. I came with some girlfriends but will be heading back with my family soon! Thank you for such a great meal!

The place was empty but they sat us by the bar area even though we had reservations, very noisy from the staff not any patrons.
Place setting only had 1 fork which I had to use for all courses never got a knife or clean fork. Bread was hard on bottom. Appetizer and Salads were good, but main courses were not. Pasta was over cooked and the sauce on the Veal was not good.

Entering this restaurant is like going back to the seventies...and not in some good retro way. Completely ordinary ambiance combined (in our visit) with uninformed cooking techniques to create a blah experience. Flavorless sauces on both fish and overcooked meat were beginning to congeal before our meal concluded. Overcooked vegetables were submerged in that same sauce.

The waitress, though she meant well, seemed to have been trained at a bad diner, insisting we re-use our dirty silverware and that we take plates of food from her in mid-air (no, we were not part of a crowd at a large table). The house red threatened to dissolve the enamel on our teeth. The world is drowning in good cheap wine and this is the best you can do?

How can a restaurant be this out of touch in 2021? The owner did not visit the main dining room once to check on things. Maybe he was hiding in shame in the bar.

La Verona occupies perhaps the most desirable restaurant location in all of Kennett Square, with a great deal of wonderful outdoor seating. How sad to have such an uninspired place occupying this prime real estate.

Had a great time with family at LaVerona. We had to wait a little while after our reservation time to get seated but it was a busy Saturday night. The food was great. Tasty and good portions. They were accommodating with a kids meal we asked for that wasn’t listed exactly on the menu. The server did a great job. Great Italian food in Kennett!

Our meal was fabulous. We had the Mushroom Ravioli and the special of the day Arctic Char. The dessert was the Lemon cello, which was quite refreshing. We dined outside, it was delightful and there was even live music on a Friday evening. We will definitely visit here again.
