I was seated in an extension of a booth. They squeezed a table of 4 in for a 630 res ( made 6 days earlier) on a Monday nite. Which means only one of us sat at a booth seat and 3 on chairs. Was awkward. Would have preferred the table of 4 that was checking out in mid room but was told it was already reserved. I watched it stay empty entire time we were there. Waiter Kevin rushed us to order and brought each course quickly before previous was eaten. Same with check. Dropped and came 2x to collect. We were in and out in 90 mins. I’d say average. We weren’t lingerers!
Very good except the waiter was a little difficult about changing one of our orders.
The food and wine were excellent! It’s also a beautiful space - nicely decorated with high ceilings. The tables are very very close to each other. You can hear the conversations of the tables on either side of you clearly as if you were part of the same party. When someone sitting on the benches gets up to leave, the tables need to be moved to make room for them to exit. The service was great when the waiter takes your order and when you get your bill, but not so good in between. It was difficult to find him or get his attention for bread or a second glass of wine or more water or anything else one might require between order and payment. It might’ve just been a bad night, and given the great food, I would not write this restaurant off just yet.
A great experience and wonderful service
LOVE THIS PLACE! FOOD IS AMAZING AND WINE IS IN TAP!
Went on Saturday Feb. 17th and it was packed. I'm sure Valentines' Day had something to do with it. The food was excellent, along with the service, and we had an enjoyable dinner out.
we have been here many times and each time lives up to our expectations..food is always great and service is excellent. we always suggest Verace when someone asks for a restaurant suggestion.
Once again. Fabulous Food. Fabulous Service. Our Waiter was Wonderful. The Manager was Awesome. They made my Daughter's Birthday Dinner, a Great one
Excellent service. Waiter was very attentive. Food perfectly prepared came out with little wait. The octopus appetizer was a little disappointing with only 4 small
Pieces and a little dry. Otherwise the beats salads was amazing and the salmon and branzino were excellent.
The food is delicious and the service is good, just not a fan of Manhattan style seating, I like sitting outside in the warmer weather, Good place overall!
I’ve been to this restaurant twice and both times the food and service were great. I don’t remember our waiters name but both times that I came here they were both genuine, kind, and attentive (even on Valentine’s Day when it was packed). I love this place !
We went for our anniversary which happens to be Valentines Day. We rarely go out on the actual day as most restaurants are crazy that night. This year I decided to go to one of our favorite places and it did not disappoint. Food was on point, service was great. Enjoyed the selections available from the prefixe as well.
Mario stopped by the table to chat for a few minutes and was pleasant as always. Verace still is one of my neighborhood favorites!
Very unfortunate to see what has happened to this great restaurant. This story ends up with my wife and I getting up from our table, walking out, and finding a better meal elsewhere. My wife and I had a tradition of dining at Verace every Valentine’s Day. We’ve done this since the restaurant opened several years back! They always had a list of Valentine’s Day specials, in addition to their normal great menu of $18-$22 priced dishes. Well, this year they changed. The only option was a prix fix menu, $165 per couple!!!!!!! How unfortunate and absurd. $65 per person, plus tax and tip, will land you slightly above $165 - with no beverages of course. What a rip off. We got up from our table, walked out and went down to Sayville for a nice Valentine’s Day meal. When I called for the reservations, they should have mentioned it. Or at least on the website. Tough luck for Verace.
Went way back when it first opened as a small plate/tapas type italian restaurant. The food was great but the quantity of food and cost was ridiculous. Heard that they changed the menu and have gone back several times now. Everything I've had has been delicious along with my family. Went last year for my daughter's graduation dinner of 12 . Everybody enjoyed it.
This has always been a fav of mine. Their menu, although not huge, has some really eclectic meals. The pasta is made on the premise, they have great drinks, nice wine list, and a great ambiance. We went for my birthday and I was not disappointed! I highly recommend this wonderful restaurant!
Had an awesome first experience with my boyfriend at Verace! We went to celebrate our anniversary together, it was very romantic. We sat on the second floor that overlooked the first floor dining area. Our waiter Brian was such an awesome help, he helped make our first time very enjoyable. The chicken parm was fantastic! We will be back!
I won’t normally leave reviews but when management provides great service it deserves to commended. Our reservation was over 25 minutes late. I have zero filter and made sure I expressed how I was annoyed that I’m eating dinner at 9:30 vs our 8:45 reservation. With that being said... they answered to my compliant really well. The general manager had our waiter bring off two free apps, which were an incredible. I wish i knew our waiters name to give him a shoutout. He seemed so young but so professional, just amazing. We will be back
Friends of ours had highly recommended. We were disappointed with the food, it wasn’t what we had expected.
Had a most delicious meal on Wednesday nite's wine dinner. Kudos to the chef!
Each weekly wine dinner seems to out-do the previous one. The Peconic Bay Scallop preparation with purple cauliflower was a delight, while the steak and mashed potatoes with mushrooms was pure comfort food! We were in food heaven! Afterwards, chatting convivially with several other patrons, we all realized that this is an exceptional place with special people and amazing positive energy.
