My wife and I went for our anniversary. Mike, our waiter, was very nice and helpful. He made great suggestions on dishes and let us take our time and didn’t rush anything. We sat outside and other than the local air raid siren going off, it was quiet.

We enjoyed our dinner at La Verona, a popular Italian restaurant in Kennett Square. The Mushroom Gratin appetizer was very good - several types of mushrooms and melted cheese over toast points. It's a hearty dish and good for sharing. For entrees we had Chicken Picatta, prepared with a light, flavorful sauce, and the daily meat special, a veal chop prepared with mushroom sauce. Both were excellent. If you like sweet cocktails, try the Peachy Retreat signature cocktail recommended in the Summer 2018 edition of FIG Kennett Square - it was really good. It was a pleasant evening, and we dined at the cafe tables outside the restaurant. However, it was very busy this past Friday night with the Farmer's Market across the street and First Friday Art Stroll in town. For quieter outside dining, come early in the week or ask for a cafe table around the side of the building vs. along State Street.

La Verona is always enjoyable with very good Italian dishes and especially good desserts. On this occasion, Kennett Square's Third Thursday outdoor dining event, we were accommodated outdoors despite a slight misunderstanding that a two day previous Open Table booking would only offer indoor seating. It was perfect weather, the furniture was surprisingly comfortable for folding chairs, the food was excellent. However they were woefully understaffed. Waiters were literally running to and from the kitchen, and after serving our appetizers and main courses at the same time as drinks and wine, we didn't see ours again until the check came (almost 2 hours later) with no offer of dessert. We had a wonderful evening, but felt bad for the staff. They should hire some temps or, sadly, accept fewer reservations.

One of our party needed gluten and dairy free food and that came together well. waitress was very helpful. I ordered a salad that i was fairly certain was supposed to have cheese and it did not. Another friend ordered a Reuben and she said it was quite good. We will go back there.

The food was delicious and the staff very attentive. It was our second time eating there and would highly recommend it for anyone living or visiting Kennett Square. The calamari appetizer and fresh hot bread were tasty and a great start to the meal. We all seemed to have a different parmesan meal; eggplant, chicken and veal. La Verona was amenable to our special requests (substitutions, easy on the sauce, etc) and everything was fresh, hot and very tasty. Great value for the portions, a wonderful neighborhood eatery.

Busy night for Art Walk- service was professional and knowledgeable, but slow. Duck with Orange sauce was tough and served on the bone. It was hard to cut and seemed over cooked. Adaptions were made to the sides as requested. A band was playing in the other room which added to the noise but could be fun for added activity after dinner. The restaurant is a nice place and in the heart of Kennett, but we had a bad night. Nobody acknowledged that we noted a special birthday on the reservation.

Great experience at La Verona! We came for a birthday dinner in between an afternoon at Longwood Gardens and the evening fireworks show. The special arugula salad with goat cheese and fruits was delicious and enough for 2 people to share. The crab cakes were excellent, as well the chicken arrabiata. The eggplant parm was the best I've ever had. Service was good and we had plenty of time to get back to Longwood for the evening's festivities.

The salmon could have used some sort of sauce as it was a little dry but the rest of our platters which included the chicken parmesan, chicken marsala, Margarita Pizza, and all our deserts were excellent.

Would have given food a much higher rating, but my wife's veal parmesan was tough and not very good. My seafood linguini was excellent. So it was a mixed bag.

Waiter was great. Very personable and humorous and knew how to stay out of way but be there frequently enough so you weren't looking for him.

I love La Varona. The food is always great, the people are nice, & they have a good atmosphere. The new bar menu has a lot of good stuff on it, but I suggest either the braised beef sliders or the grilled octopus. There both really small, light, & good for a snack while your drinking.

It was our first time dining with La Verona and it was very welcoming from the moment we walked in. We were 10 mins early for our reservation and were seated right away
The service was great. Not too pushy not too distant. We stayed roughly 1 hr 45 mins. Had a bottle of wine, some apps, main course, and dessert.
Our waitress was great. She recommended dishes, was friendly and just an all around nice person to have side conversations with when she came by.
Last but not least, the food was spectacular!! From the anti pasta, and roasted artichoke app, to the main courses and dessert, everything was authentic, great tasting and fresh! We would recommend this lovely Italian restaraunt to anyone for any occasion.

We always enjoy our visits to La Verona. The manager sat us at a lovely table for four in front of the fireplace. Our waiter Mike was terrific - witty, friendly, professional, efficient. Food was delicious - we ordered gnocchi, saltimbocca and the seafood & linguini special with a spicy sauce. Very good price for the quality & portions. Wine & drinks also quite good. After dinner we moved into the bar for drinks and to listen to the band, and Mike again waited on us. Very happy evening all around. We will be back again soon.
