We had a wonderful dining experience at Vero. Our server was fun, helpful and personable. The Italia wine she helped us select was excellent. Our mains were the Rock fish and Salmon, both exceptional.
Piping hot, authentic Italian dishes! Had a date night with my husband and selected this place in downtown Palo Alto. It is nice and quaint, however it can get a bit loud. They were understaffed but managed to handle our needs quite effectively. The food was excellent and came out timely and very hot! It is a simple menu, with great options at great prices! Definitely try it!
Wonderful restaurant. Wonderful food, good value, service with a personal touch
Vero is great Italian! Unique flavors and custom dishes!
Wine selection was Italian dominant!
Food is very good and flavorful! Enjoy!!
Amazingly delicious food! Attentive, friendly and personable staff who kept a close eye on us. Appreciate that the chef came out to the table to talk with us and offered a food recommendation when we asked - and it was incredible!!
Amazing 6 month dinner with my partner. Owner is very charismatic and helpful with the menu. Waitress and owner were very attentive and enjoyable. Food was amazing!
This was a birthday party for me thrown by a friend. The food was great (as usual) and the owners and staff were more than gracious. The 'Insalata de Mare' is superb. The 'Pesche del Giorno' is unique; very simply prepared - Chef Massimo knows how to let the ingredients shine through. Pasta and small plates very good. A thoughtful and accessible wine list. Try the Greco di Tufo.
The food was terrible. I had linguine with clams. The clams were overcooked and it was like chewing rubber. I would have said something to the waiter but I was with two ladies who had recommended this restaurant as being great and I did not feel comfortable saying what I really felt. The dessert that we had which was the vanilla gelato with espresso was good but the portion of the gelato was so small. When we walked into the place at 1 o'clock there was no one else there, that should have been my clue. The waiter was nice and the service was OK but I will never go back. There are too many other fabulous places in the bay area. Sorry about that Vero!
Best fresh well cooked food for dinner, definitely will be going back very soon I highly recommend this restaurant for any sort of special occasion anniversary birthday date night Etc
Busy night and wait staff seemed stretched. We always enjoy going to this restaurant and
Great food, great service, great atmosphere...what more could one want?
We had a fantastic lunch here of just appetizers. The calamari is the best I've ever had.
Excellent food. Great experience. Authentic dishes.
The food was great! The pastas were very delicious, my family eats very light so we felt it was a little on the heavy side in terms of saltiness. But the servers were super friendly, very attentive and we had a great time eating there!
Worst waiter service I have ever experienced. He made two very rude and condescending comments to me when I did not care for the wine I ordered, forgot my request for a straw, forgot my husband's request for more bread, failed to bus our table when we were done eating leaving us to sit with dirty plates in front of us, and brought us the wrong check. At least the food was good.
The food was delicious, the atmosphere was cool
It felt like a real Italian restuarant in Downdown Palo Alto
Vero is an excellent small restaurant. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The noise level can get pretty high as there area lot of hard surfaces, but the food is excellent. My wife had ravioli with an excellent sauce and I had linguine alle vongole. This is me favorite Italian restaurant test dish. Veros version was different, but it was excellent. They use the nice little clams that are used in Italy, but it was slightly spicier than I find in most places. Good job "Vero"
We hadn't been there in awhile (we forget about it because it's off the beaten path in downtown Palo Alto), and we were delighted to return.
I had the seafood risotto: not overly rich/creamy. It was "meaty" and flavorful.
I also had the polenta funghi appetizer -- yum! Tangy mushrooms and sweet polenta.
Two others in the party loved the ravioli: light creamy sauce.
Attentive and friendly service.
Owner and staff are attentive, serious about their passion for outstanding food, and easy to engage with. We will go again!!
Good spot that's easy to miss. Owner is friendly and the food is very good. Recommend lasagna and eggplant app.
