Ambiance was amazing. The food tasted weird. The cheese on my lasagna tasted like it had been left out. My girlfriend’s carbonara lacked flavor. But again, the ambiance was nice.

This is my second time at Vero's, they haven't decreased the quality of their service. I looove italian food, and I love even more the food that they serve. My waitress was very nice to me, I felt very well being attended by her, though I couldn't get her name she recommended me a white wine that was just perfect. Definitely, I'll be back there soon

There were 6 of us. We all thought it was delicious ! Loved it. They were very accommodating, service was great and food was mouth watering. Next time I’m definitely ordering dessert, but was too full.

Amazing find. Notice some reviewers were bothered by the location downtown being a bit off the beaten path. Welcome to downtown Miami. If you let this deter you, you're missing out. Service, food, and experience were wonderful.

We sat in the outside seating area and were very put off by an individual smoking in the area as we were eating our food.

Went on recommendation from Open Table diners. Food was just good, not great. Ambiance was totally lacking. Location downtown was not good. Lots of homeless literally right across the street. Would I recommend...no. While our experience wasn’t completely awful, I’m sure there are better overall Italian restaurants in Miami.

Random choice though I liked the menu and the positive comments. GREAT choice. Not fancy. But a family type authentic Italian restaurant with wonderful food. My wife and I each had salads which were large, fresh and delicious. I opted for lasagna, made the old fashioned way with a cream sauce instead of ricotta (delicious with hints of spices not typical of American Italian restaurants. My wife had squid inked linguine and she raved about it. No room for dessert 🥺. But so happy to have found this great little restaurant Highly recommend.

I highly recommend this place, the waiter and the owner are the kind of people that are very observant and with a warm treat. No complaints about the food, honestly it surprised me how tasty is the pizza and the waiter's wine choice was the appropriate, it felt like that wine and pizza combination was made for be eaten always together 🤤🤤🤤

Great food, presentation of food, service and atmosphere! It is a hidden gem. Bread was served hot. Our waitress (owner's wife) provided great service. Our food was served hot. The salad is enough for two people. Our entrees served hot as well. Tiramisu was delicious! We will definitely come back there again.

I don't usually frequent any spots in downtown Miami because I just can't seem to enjoy the parking situation and the traffic in the area. However, I would gladly figure it out anytime to go to Vero!

I walked into Vero to try the restaurant and I'm so glad I did. The owners are an Italian couple and they are highly involved in the business (from serving the tables and greeting the guests to administrative tasks) which is great because it allows for the quality of the food and the service to be consistent. You could tell from the people walking in, it seemed like they were frequent customers.

Going into the food... I can't get over the excellent dishes and the quality of each bite we had... we tried the tomato bruschetta, arugula e finocchio salad, bucatini a 'amatriciana and the diavolo pizza. Everything was outstanding!

Great food, amazing service and a beautiful restaurant are all three elements that Vero offers!

If you have a chance to stop by Vero, do not hesitate!

Nothing short of excellent, the food rivals mama's, everyone manga. The service was excellent. If you are looking for TRULY authentic Italian cuisine this is a stop you do not want to miss. This is one of the most talented chefs I've ever had the pleasure of meeting with. His love of food is extended into every dish he prepares. Whenever I am in Miami I will be having dinner with my new friend. God bless and keep up the great work.

Great surprise in the middle of downtown Miami walking distance from our hotel as soon as we entered Vero we got transported to a magical place, we enjoyed the christmas decorations and lived the food, the pastas are just great especially the signature pork belly spicy red sauce, my son loved his pizza. Our host very knowledgeable and we had the occasion to try a quite exotic italian craft beer.
Highly recommend
