The bruschetta is amazing, highly recommend! I got the Bolognese and my friend had the butternut squash ravioli. Each were good! The place was pretty dead when I went, our table was only one of two that were there. Benefit to that was we were able to sit wherever we wanted, and we chose a cute little table inside with couches and pillows. Service was good and our server was very friendly.

Big portions was our first impression. Service is good but not attentive enough, they take the silverware from the previous course and don’t mark the next one on time. As a person from the industry as well, that is not a perfect scenario.
Overall very good.

My friend and I ate here for a “girlfriends date night” and it was great. We were quickly seated and tended to. We ordered the caesar salad and bruschetta for appetizers. The caesar salad was so delicious, my friend was still raving about it two days later. For our entrees we had the lasagna and the ravioli. Both were well seasoned and very tasty. We also ordered wine and they allowed us to taste before fully committing and we eventually purchased a bottle while talking and enjoying the ambiance. The overall experience was great.

You can tell they care about their food. Homemade bread. High quality olive oil. Delicious. I was a bit worried because it was a bit empty when we got there. More guests came. Reasonably priced.

The food was decent, didn’t expect much for our first time but it actually was a good experience. Few things we noticed. The music playing was today’s pop and we thought that at Italian place you would expect some Italian music or anything more relaxing than pop music. Another thing is that they didn’t have cracked pepper, which we also thought that an Italian restaurant should have.

Very disappointed, they only had one waiter for the entire restaurant, we order wine and waiter totally forgot about it, he was overwhelmed trying to serve 32 people at once, I ordered lasagna and was served a bolognese with cheese and no lasagna layers on the plate whatsoever, description on menu says layers of pasta with meat sauce, didn’t see the pasta there, It is sad because we like to try new restaurants for helping the economy but we will never come back to this place, I didn’t eat my food, what a waste for a Saturday night.

Our waiter was very good and informative we had a limited menu for NYE. The only thing was the manager was very hyper I heard him tell another table that they had two waiters call out. He was acting like it was the end of the world when everything was very calm there. He was overwhelmed which I understand but no need to show the guests that. Just want to say that our waiter was excellent

I went to Vero with my Italian friend, who was raised with the best foods that Italy has to offer. Vero didn't disappoint. We both found the food, wine and staff to be exceptional. Highly recommended.

We were sitting in front of the kitchen, in the alley. We ordered the octopus as an appetizer and literally saw the chef pull it out of a plastic bag.

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

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.
