I can honestly say this was the worst Italian meal we have had and one of the most expensive.The lady who I’m not sure owned it was very rude when we told her we hadn’t enjoyed the food.We asked her to remove the $28 dollar service charge as we don’t enjoy our meal.Her reply wasn’t asking us why we had enjoyed it it was well how much are you leaving.
We left $20 but to be fare it didn’t warrant that.I would never recommend this place it is not value for money the server was rude and the food terrible at best

Real great and Romantic Italian restaurant in Miami, my wife loved the burrada salad and I had the best bruschetta appetizer, so simple yet delicious. Rich in meat fettuccine with boloñeses sauce and delicate ravioli with roasted butternut squash in a tangi pecorino and mushroom sauce Paola our server was incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful we also had a great bottle of Italian red wine from Tuscany and a great pannacotta to finish off.

Exceptional Italian food!
Served in the most gracious way, Vero separate himself from the sometimes ridiculous Miami restaurant scene.
We have been coming here regularly for years now and alway live the specials gladly now they have a special for wine option on the menu and mostly paired the the limited weekly available new dishes. Highly recommended!

Vero's was a down home Italian restaurant which is perfect if you want some Italian comfort food. The ambiance was very romantic and the service good. However, the menu was not the expansive which limited us to choices. We had a taste for Chicken Alfredo which was not on the menu. They made it for us anyway which was very nice and accommodating. It was not good at all. The chicken looked funny and the entire dish smelled weird. We barely touched our food then took it to go. We ended up throwing it out.

Amazing Italian restaurant in the middle of Downtown. The service was great and attentive (the waitresses and hostess were genuinely kind and hospitable), the food was absolutely delicious and well priced, and the atmosphere was serene. It felt like it almost belonged somewhere else, as opposed to the somewhat downbeat Downtown, Miami. Overall, this is favorite of ours and from here on out, we'll make sure to plan another special occasion dinner to Vero Italian.

This was our second experience at Vero Italian. We vacationed last year as a family in Miami Beach and found Vero on Yelp, our first experience was so amazing that we made it a point to come back this year!!! Hands down best Italian food we have ever eaten, and we go to the North End in Boston frequently. The authenticity, the freshness and the overall flavors transport you to the owners home villages. The experience and the food is above anyone else. In addition, the service was and is top notch. Always asking questions, making sure that we are all set and that we don’t need anything else. My son, who is 8 years old and eats practically nothing, says that this is the best pizza in the whole world. I ordered the carbonara and it was exceptional! My husband ordered the lamb and he said it was out of this world. The antipasto for a starter was the best plate we have eaten for an appetizer, combined with the fresh grilled bread (an extra touch) and olive oil and balsamic. The desserts to top off the meal were delicious and flavorful. Overall- we wish they would pack up and find a spot in MA or NH so that we could enjoy Vero year round!!!! Fantastic food and even more amazing people.

The greatest Italian food in the area!
No compromises, we had the bucatini and it was surprisingly spicy but with a great zesty sweet background taste a really great dish, my partner had some spectacular butternut squash ravioli that paired perfectly with the mushroom and aged cheese sauce. The most decadent lava cake topped the dinner. The waiter suggested pairing with a great Pinot Noir, Great choice will definitely come back to try some more!

My wife loves Italian food like no other. She said this was the best Italian meal she may has had in her entire life (40+). When you first walk-in you think it is a little underwhelming on ambience, but do not be fooled - it’s about the food. My wife is threatening to fly back to Miami from California just to eat here again. We ordered the gnocchi app, lasagna and bruschetta - all were excellent. Service was also excellent and very friendly. A ++++

We tried this restaurant on a recent trip based on the Opentable reviews, which were very good overall.
When we got to the restaurant at 7:00, we were the only party in the entire place. Our server quickly came over and offered us water and took a drink order. After she brought the drinks she asked if we were ready to order and when we replied not quite yet, she seemed annoyed and proceeded to come back twice again in 5 minutes.
Of all the dishes that we ordered, the pizza was by far the safest. The bolognese was awful and had very little meat in it.
Since we went with business colleagues, it was embarrassing that the food was a huge disappointment.
I would not recommend this place.

The food was very good comparing to some comments we read. It was a real Italian pizza. It was very cold inside with the AC and too warm outside to eat. The place is small and it has a very nice atmosphere. We wanted to go back the next day but they are closed on Sundays.

The staff were absolutely charming - welcoming, smiling, helpful. The space was attractive and comfortable, the food delicious, and there was just enough noise that it felt lively but not so much that it dampened conversation. I was amazed that on a Saturday it was not more crowded. I hope they get the amount of business they deserve!
