    My wife and I found ourselves with a rare opportunity to have dinner on a quiet Saturday evening. We didn’t have a tremendous amount of time but looked up and found Vero in the area and popped in for dinner. The food was excellent service was extremely cordial but they could’ve used a little more help since they only had one or two people to take care of the entire floor it seems. We will definitely give it another try and recommend the place without hesitation.

    Disappointing. My wife and I went there last night before a concert in downtown Miami. WE had 90 minutes to enjoy our meal, close enough to walk to the concert. We were told by the ONLY waiter working on about 10 tables that the food took a long time. Not wanting to be late for our concert, we simply ordered mozzarella appetizer to share. It was the size of a softball! We gave half to the table sitting next to us. I had to remind the ONLY busboy that we needed plates. And the ONLY person working behind the bar needed to be reminded three times to serve a glass of wine. So, I dont know about the food because we never tried any entrees. The understaffed lack of professionalism was, by far, the main impression made.

    Like I actually don’t know what this restaurant was thinking. The server had no idea what he was doing. Forgot about our wine and food. Then an hour later tells us he’s out of the wine. The food finally came and it was worse than the Olive Garden. Not coming back and wouldn’t recommend it. They were not apologetic at all and the scary party Is they had no idea anything was wrong.

    Very good and 'real Italian' food with original recipes. This is a place, where no adaptations to recipes are done in order to match the traditional american taste. Maybe one or the other needs to get used to it, but it's really worth trying. I'm sure many guests will understand what real Italian food means and at the end appreciate it. The menu has a huge choice available, so plenty opportunity to chose from. The owner is Italian and very nice authentic and passionate about her business.

    The food was below average, the tuna was dry, the pizza burned, the wine too sour and too expensive. I don't recommend going there unless you want to spend too much money for food that's just not worth it.

    I was delighted to find a restaurant with a good number of vegan options! There were plenty of choices and that's so rare in downtown Miami. Our server was fabulous, very attentive but not overbearing. The food unfortunately was only mediocre. I wish I could say better about the food as I really loved everything else about this place!

    I was very excited to try this restaurant for Mother’s Day however when we arrived it took them about 15 mins to even greet us. Then when we sat down another 30 mins went by before anyone came by to offer us water. Beer was hot, they were out of Pinot Grigio, didn’t even bother to recommend another type. Then we we expressed it was our first time there and asked for recommendations the waitress seems highly aggravated. Needless to say we asked for our bill for the hot beer and left. Really disappointing because the ambiance was really charming and menu looked great but service to me is everything.

    We were excited to try this place out, we live downtown and are always looking for the gems near us. Although this place had a great ambiance, it fell short in terms of being a gem to get really excited about. The second it started to get a little more busy the gaps in between service grew longer and longer, the rib eye which was one of the most expensive entrees on the menu was over charred, ordered it medium rare. Which is something I would’ve told the waitress had she thought to check on us while we were eating. This place was not packed or understaffed so having to wait 15 minutes for us to get our check was frustrating at the end. All that being said, we enjoyed our dinner, the bruschetta’s were delicious, just thought it was going to be better. Willing to give it another try.

    Sorry, I have nothing good to say about this restaurant. Let’s just say I wasn’t the only person who was brought stale, hard bread and the wrong order. These were pasta dishes. One of the lowest food cost items, give your customers a nice portion instead of being skimpy.

    If it was not for our server Jorge, I would have given this place a poor review. He was amazing and was the reason for us not walking out. We were seated outside on a very cold day without any heater. The inside was empty but they refused to let us sit indoors. They claimed every table was reserved but they were empty till we had finished our dinner. The food was quite good and Jorge made up for the unfriendly attitude with his warm and friendly service. The place was dirty, especially the toilets. Certainly not going back ever.

    Terrific New Year’s dinner at Vero. It was a special menu with several choices for all courses. We tried a new bruschetta appetizer and salad, both excellent. We paired with a Frangiacorta, reserving enough for dessert. The main courses were cannelloni and salmon, both excellent. We shifted to Aglianico. We definitely enjoy their great selection of Italian wines. Dessert was tiramisu, and theirs is the best!

    We went, by recommendation, for Christmas dinner and wasn't aware that it was only one menu. It was 4 courses, but we ended up paying $360 for two people. The website never said it was limited menu, so we got a surprise, once we got there. Food was great and service was excellent, but we wish we had more options to eat, because what we went for, we couldn't get. I'd go back, just not on a holiday.

    The food was ok, not fantastic, what did come as a surprise is the fact that the restaurant decides what someone should tip, it is stated in small words at the very end of the menu, 20% tip, this is ridiculous, and to top it off they ask people if they want to pay even more (between 2-7%). Isn’t tipping at the diners discretion anymore? This totally ruined the experience dining here.

    Ahhh! Enjoyable Italian food in a relaxed setting with music by Frankie. Unfortunately, however, the music mood was that of the “Frankie Zappa” ilk rather than THE Frankie. AC/DC, Nirvana and the like blared from the speakers continuously - a rather odd choice for both the setting and the style of food. Aside from that and the parking challenge, the experience was most pleasant and the food noteworthy.

    Our hopes were high based on the wine menu and food menu. However, they were out of a very large number of dishes, ingredients, and wines. The food we did get was not very impressive; even the bread was clearly old and stale and had been re-heated haphazardly. From a place billing itself as authentic, you'd expect at least quality olive oil-- even the olive oil was not high quality and questionable whether actually from Italy. We were sorely disappointed.

    Vero ItalianResponded on December 11, 2021Hi Melissa, I'm sorry you were disappointed. Thanks to the large turnout, unfortunately some ingredients were finished as a result some dishes in addition to wine. We don't keep frozen products but only fresh, so they run out. We make fresh bread every day. The oil you can come and check the bottle is 100% Italian, as well as any other ingredient.

    We dined at Vero in September and loved it. Four of us dined there last Saturday. What a difference. Service was horrible. We asked for our bottle of wine that we ordered 4 times. They brought out food at different times. My dinner arrived at the same time as a salad. The other couple got their food all at once. This place must be under new ownership. My husband ordered pasta with seafood. He had to look for the seafood! Our second and last visit.

    Vero ItalianResponded on December 11, 2021Hi Karen, I'm sorry you were disappointed. However, the ownership is still the same, the only difference for two new waiters was their first day (rehearsal). Unfortunately, the kitchen follows orders. As for the seafood pasta, we are famous for the abundance of seafood, you can check from the photos of our customers on social networks.
