We enjoyed our meal but were surprised when the bill was presented and the filet special’s cost was significantly higher than any other item on the menu. While the patron can always ask the cost of a particular item, it is deceptive to price any entree significantly higher than any other item on the menu, especially when the server knew that we didn’t see the specials list at the front of the restaurant and had no other way of knowing the cost of the filet. Ultimately, the experience does not leave us really wanting to return in the future.

This is a very nice restaurant. Nice selection or entree's and a few specials were offered as well. Our baked salmon was tasty, but just a shade over cooked.
Nice wine list too. Several interesting choices at a fair price.

The waitress did a great job telling us how they pride themselves on their in-house made pizza dough, sauces, and PASTA. Then they served me the Giuseppe with bow tie pasta. I looked at them and asked the waitress if these were the homemade pasta she spoke of. She looked at them and said, "No. it's supposed to be penne but we ran out of it ". So they opened a box of pasta!!!!

Sat outside on a lovely afternoon. Patio was nice with large umbrellas that tilted to keep the sun out of our eyes. Service with Kelsey was excellent and food was delicious!

Jordan was an excellent waiter! I know this is not a high end restaurant so wasn’t surprised that the wine we ordered was not chilled properly nor did our waiter serve it to the person who ordered it for tasting! That’s okay! He did a good job and we were satisfied!

We ordered apps and it came at the same time as our dinner and came cold. It was still ok, but we would’ve definitely enjoyed it more if it came beforehand. Our pasta dishes were hot and good but both came out with the incorrect sauces. Assuming we go back and these issues improve, the food is worth it as you can tell the quality is there. Just wish it would’ve came correct. The waitress was very kind.

Service is disorganized. We had reservations, but the hostess didn’t seem to know where to seat us, even though there were open tables everywhere. The food was average. I would not go here again.

Very surprised as we are frequent visitors of Bar Verona … we found the prices are higher and the portions were too large. My spaghetti was way over cooked and the sauce pasty. It was un appetizing to eat. We have loved the food in the past, but this time was unsatisfactory!

Service was horrible and extremely slow; there were only three other tables with customers and the service was still so slow. I just witnessed staff standing around chatting. We waited for 35 minutes for our before dinner cocktail. Apps received were slim and unimpressive. Dinner, only ok and not much flavor, and with that the food selections severely overpriced. For example, I had the Salmon dinner and it was served with the Salmon up-side-down. Looking at burnt skin and a mud vein was clearly gross, and it was very dry.

Great food. Had a pizza for an appetizer and the gnocchi with truffle cream sauce for dinner. The gnocchi were like pillows they were so soft. Tiramisu was delicious for dessert.

Food was ok but not special. Expected more for the prices. There really was no “ambience”. Then a party of 10 was seated in same room as us and we literally could not hear each other even though we were at the farthest table in that room from them. Wait staff was excellent including our server Kelsey. But I would not go back.

Went there for a family dinner with two toddlers on a Sunday evening to celebrate my bday…service was wonderful, everything we ordered from apps, dinner, and dessert were all wonderful!!! Calamari with the sweet & spicy sauce was great as well as the risotto balls! I had the guisesppe pasta and my kids had the spaghetti and we all loved it! Our server was wonderful. We’ll definitely be back. Great place to enjoy a good meal with the kids.

All the intangibles (atmosphere, cleanliness, etc) were top notch and the staff was as friendly as I can remember at any restaurant. The food was terrific and I love their simple menu! The only negative was the tiramisu. I've eaten hundreds of them and loved them all but I didn't care for this because it wasn't tiramisu (by look or taste).
They should warn the customers it's their take on it, not what people expect. Other than that, wonderful restaurant!

Wow what generous portions! The good was good and a great value. We would definitely go again. Outside dining was nice as well. Service was better than average, especially in these times. I with the entre menu was a little broader.

This was our first time here and it started off with them seating us in an empty room - like we were in time out. So much for the restaurant experience/atmosphere. If we want to eat by ourselves we would have stayed home. After 7 or 8 minutes of no one acknowledging us, I went and asked if we has a server? Once she showed up she was fine. The food was average at best, not great but good. We were in and out in about 55/60 minutes. For the two of us with two beers the bill was just shy of hundred dollars including the tip. Overall I'd give our experience a C grade.

The food was great but the drinks were meh. I had to send my cosmo back as it tasted like a mouthful of lemon pledge. I’m not sure if the waiter couldn’t hear in the restaurant but we had to request things more than once. We will probably skip the dine in experience and opt for take out next time.
