    The server was pleasant, but inattentive. It appeared she was the only server that night and perhaps was just overwhelmed - but it didn't seem at all busy.

    The place it’s self is super cute, dim lights, cute decorations, many differnt tables. Food was good, Bolognese was delicious Burrata was nice and the Vodka pasta was meh, super oily. The server asked if we wanted to add chicken to the Vodka pasta and didn’t mention that it was an additional $15. the pasta it’s self was $20. I wouldn’t have added it if i knew that, also considering it wasn’t very good chicken. We asked for a wine recommendation and he said he would grab us something to try and he never returned with anything and never mentioned it, which is fine but was a bummer. Cute place but meh. Other reviews were really good but they are all from over a year ago so maybe quality has gone down hill.

    Not blaming the servers, the cooks etc that stayed and worked the Christmas Eve service. They did the best they could. Mgmt should have staffed a full shift in order to provide better quality or just close for Christmas Eve. Everything was too salty. Bread was burnt. Buttered noodles for the kids were salty and sat in a pool of butter. Pasta was undercooked and some were raw. And the food was late. About an hour. But the service was wonderful. Decor was cheery. I am disappointed I didn’t get a chance to taste the food under ideal conditions.

    I’ll start with saying how delicious and plentiful the food was! Definitely loved the homemade Italian food atmosphere and plenty to eat! Our waiter was friendly and busted his butt to serve us. However, the only faults were the time it took from ordering to paying our check was way too long. We sat a total of 2.5 hours for pasta dishes, and although he told us ahead of time that “it takes a bit” since everything was made from scratch, it took an hour before we even got bread at our table, and by then our drinks were done and we had to order more. It then took almost 20 minutes more to get the appetizers (salads). It appeared to be only one waiter, one cook and a busgirl/assistant who didn’t speak any English. If they can improve on the time and maybe more workers then it would be perfect to dine at.

    We’ve been back several times to this lovely, hidden gem in the middle of a busy city. The food service professionals, as well as the quality, the food speak for themselves! Great find. I must be getting old because the music is just a little loud for me, but other than that perfect!!!

    I used to go to this restaurant for good Italian food. This time, the restaurant changed completely. We ordered bottle of wine, couple of appetizers and couple of entrees. We said we were going to share the dishes with three of us. The waiter asked if we want the food altogether. We said the appetizer and soup should be together. We waited for an hour and only thing they brought was bread and a bottle of wine. I went to complain and the waiter said “Look at how many tickets we have and you said you want all the food together so we are waiting all the food to be ready!” They were busy, I saw it. But I have never heard such an excuse. Also, who can think that a restaurant serves all foods, appetizer, salad, main dishes at the same time! It does not fit all that in one table. I asked if they got a new owner and/or chef. They said they got a new chef. All the server seemed new also, everyone at the restaurant seemed to be inexperienced. We did not even had any food, but I rated food quality low also. It is unfortunate that we lost one of the hidden gems of Miami downtown.

    Great ambiance and service. Vero Italian has much to select from standard dishes to creative libations. They also have a separate menu featuring vegan and gluten free options. Some dishes take a bit longer which means enjoy your company and be merry!

    One of the best, most authentic Italian meals I’ve ever had! My husband, daughter and I loved absolutely everything we ordered. Bread, Bruschetta, caprese salad, penne Al vodka, bolognese, a pizza … all homemade with death ingredients and phenomenal. Excellent service and adorable atmosphere.

The service was impeccable, food was outstanding! Our waiter was excellent, so thoughtful and had excellent suggestions for food and drinks! I am gluten free and I was in awe of the Gluten free menu! They had bread, pasta, pizza and salads! What more could a GF gal want!! Will definitely be back!

    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!
