Very tasty food, with nice variety of salads, pannini, bruschetta, pizzas, all good for sharing. Excellent cocktail and wine list. Food and drinks are reasonably priced. Small space but cozy with good lounge music

Stopped by Vero's on Friday night. Nice friendly local crowd. Had a bottle of Cabernet along with a personal pizza and then a little later I had the Caprese which was very tasty.

My truffle and Mac and cheese was an hour late, and burned partially when it finally arrived. My girlfriend's flatbread pizza was an hour and 15 mins late and not that good. Fortunately the waitress was very nice and understanding, but we will not be returning.

Nice place for smaller gatherings. Great food and interesting specials. Perfect place for groups of 2 or 4. Am Italian place with no pasta may sound off but the panini's and stuffed meatballs can carry on without it.

Really nice people and attentive friendly staff...was a little noisy and nothing special in terms of decor or atmosphere but it was a happy place and good if you're looking for a middle of the road solid place to grab a glass of wine or cocktail and some bites...

I was not very impressed by Vero. I thought their sangria was overly sweet and tasted like it didn't even have any alcohol in it. The food was just okay. I went here for dinner on a weekend and it was pretty dead. The only time I'd ever come back here is for their happy hour deal.

I came here for a quick drink and decided to have a bite to eat while I was here. I love paninis and was suprised to see they have a short rib panini on the menu. I don't think I've seen that before so I had to order it. Absolutely outstanding! I also ordered the tuna tartare as well which was great.

Adorable little spot on 2nd avenue. This has become one of my favorite outdoor spots to enjoy a glass of wine and people watch. The food is great/consistent and the sangria selection is huge so you can try something new every time. The service can be slow at times, but it's only a minor gripe as my experiences as a whole have been very positive. Would definitely recommend here for a date.

This place is basically the definition of a date spot. I went inside to get a glass of wine and sat among a crowded bar. Decided to look at a menu and ordered a turkey panini and the tuna tartare. The panina was good, the tartare was OUSTANDING although a bit pricey. In this case you definitely get what you pay for. I stayed at the bar for a few more drinks and it seemed everyone here was eager to chat with other bar patrons. The manager introduced herself to me and was very hospitable as well. Just a very fun place to be in general and an even better place to meet people.

Had a great dinner here. Started off with the servers recommendation on a Montepulciano and wow a great wine. Enjoyed it with our dinner which consisted of Lamb Meatballs, Bruschetta, Tuna Tartar, and Panna Cotta for dessert. Enjoyed every bit of it. Server was friendly and knowledgeable. Also, had cocktails with dessert and they have a surprisingly good cocktail list for a Wine bar. Overall good value. Definitely a go to date spot. Will definitely be returning.

A disappointing experience, except for the guy who waited out table and made our drinks. He was great. And the prices are fine.

But beware: the menu is very limited and the quality of the food is simply not up to New York standards. The music is loud. There's no atmosphere; it's closer to a dive bar than an UES restaurant.

We were the only people there at 7:30. By 8:30, one other couple was sharing the restaurant (all on a Sunday evening). Not surprising, I suppose, but certainly unappetizing.

This is s 20 something joint not a great place
Loud, kitchen in dining room that smells. Entire space needs to be painted, polished and re-thought.

This was a beautiful charming wine bar with clean smart design when it first opened.

My wife loved her tortelli (I would order it too, based on the bite I had) and I also loved my Truffle Mac N Cheese with Prosciutto. The noise level was a little loud, but that's to be expected in a smaller space with tables as close as they are. It's NYC, so what are you going to do? We've been here before for paninis, but glad we came back to try the pasta. Good wine listing as well.

I struggle for fairness here, while the food was very tasty, the portions were (as stated on a few reviews) small to say the least
Our server was very good until he was called on to deliver a phone order (a first for us)
Overall, doubtful if we will return

My boyfriend and I came here because I live across the street -- it looked cute, and the reviews were good. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to the hype. While the wine was good, our service was incredibly slow, and the food was WAY overpriced for what we received. A "vegetable tower" was really a version of the caponata on a "tower" of rice. And the tortelli portion would barely serve a child.

I will say that they gave us ample "toast points", which is always a plus, but one can't dine on bread and $15 glasses of wine alone. Hoping this place is replaced with something a little more substantial.

Pasta dishes. Perfectly good food to eat while drinking good wine.

we started with a great meat and cheese plate and slowly worked our way through different wines... I would let the bartender know what direction I wanted to move in and then she would let me taste the next wine. We finished off with some paninnis and that was really nice. OMG Don't forget the cookie monster dessert

Food was excellent with many options between salads, panini, flat bread pizzas, bruchetta and so many other small plates. Great for sharing either for apps or can make full meal. Also, excellent wine and cocktail selection, including sangria -- watermelon version was amazing.

Our waitress, however, was very aggressive asking us every five minutes if we wanted more food or drinks. It became intrusive.
