High price and medium quality

Great service and great food, it just doesn't get much better. My wife and I had a window table in the bar; we were also offered tables outside and in dining room. It was light and airy and, even though the bar was fairly busy, quiet. Two servers waited on us and both were excellent. We each ordered one of the evening's specials are were very please. Our cocktails were great and the glasses of wine we ordered were generous. We ended with deserts and then an espresso each. Total bill was more than reasonable. Service was so good we had no difficulty tipping more than 20% and the total bill was still a good value. My only complaint is that we were visiting Kennett Square from our home in the mid-west; I wished La Verona was closer!

We were in Kennett Square of a workshop and were looking for a good Italian restaurant. This is the place. I ordered the veal piccata which was outstanding. This is a difficult dish to prepare as people's taste regarding the strength of the lemon taste can vary considerably. For me, the balance was perfect. My wive ordered the special half a stuffed lobster over linguini. This was even more outstanding. This is a great restaurant were the menu is fairly priced.

Well, whatever this restaurant is, it’s not Italian. The service was okay if a little forced at times- ie too obsequious. The grilled artichoke appetizer was good. My husband’s veal chop was properly cooked and okay. My pappardelle with Bolognese was okay but not as expected- the sauce was more tomato than creamy. And, frankly, tiramisu should have powdered cocoa on it not Hershey syrup and powdered sugar.

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.

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.
