First time eating at Verona and enjoyed it very much. Seating was quick and customers were lite at the beginning then after an hour it was busy. We arrived there around 4:45 pm. It was myself, my wife and 16 year old daughter. We all found a dinner that suits us. I had the basic spaghetti with sauce, including sausage added to it. It was very good. Pricing is a little on the high side; you pay for every extra you order: salad, soup, bread and so on are all extras. They do not come with your meal. Ambiance is very nice. Like I said, it was very lite with customer in the beginning, but even when it began to be crowded, it was not noisy. Age of customers; mostly adults but there were a few kids. Our server was attentive and hostess was a delight. I would recommend and will go back again soon. Recommend.

We went on Mother’s Day for brunch and as always at Verona’s the food was outstanding. Jeff, our server, took care of us like we were family. I look forward to making this a family tradition to go on Mother’s Day.

Eat here quite frequently. Business lunches, bite to eat after work. Had dinner with friends this time. Food was excellent and service was very solid. Food is consistent and it's a great place for a quite dinner or lunch.

Everything was delightful! Dinner started with bread and olive oil/balsamic, and the vinegar was the best I’ve ever had. They sell it, but sell out fast. If they have some, get some. I had the lasagna, and a caprese salad. The sauce on the lasagna was magnificent. Finished it off with some creme brûlée which was also very good, if a little over roasted on top. And one of the best features is hand-made espresso drinks.

Food is good but priced at the limit for what it is. Tired and uninspired service with an extremely disappointing wine list. Our 4th time here and likely our last.

Fantastic food. Service was great. Handmade drinks that were right on. We had an hour wait but that was because they were very crowded and it was Valentines day. I think that they may have over booked themselves for that particular evening. I would highly recommend this place to friends and family. We will be going back again in the future.

Valentine's Day dinner. Reservation was 7: 00. Place was overbooked. People standing everywhere. Sat in the bar where they had one bartender responsible for the bar, restaurant, serving dinners and busing tables. So unfair to put him in that position. Waited patiently for 20 min to get a drink. I ordered a cosmo but received a plain martinis, didn't complain because he had no time to remake it. Rude hostess. We finally went back up front after she was seating other tables before us. We were finally seated at 8: 45. Not acceptable. My dinner was fine but my husband had veal and it was so tough he couldn't chew it. Very bad management to let the restaurant over book and understaff. Very disappointed in a very special occasion.

We had a reservation and we waited over 45 minutes before we got seated. Obviously, restaurant overbooked. Food was good although a bit over priced. Unfortunately, we will not come back to this restaurant.

Since it was Valentine's Day it was busy and service was slow.... But since it was Valentine's Day, who was in a hurry anyway... We eat there often and don't have this problem on a typical night..

We dined for Valentines day. The portions were small for a big $.. did not sit well with the group. Small filet with 3 prawns for $47.00.. Pretty steep for what you got.. I had visited before & had great meals.. Valentines day was extremely busy for them & they were not equipped with the proper amount of servers. Our server was below average. Had to ask for water fill up several times. Will give them another chance..

We shared an appetizer of bruschetta. It was tasty. My husband and I each had a cup of the minestrone. It came piping hot and was very delicious. I had the special which was a Parmesan crusted Petrale sole over risotto with mixed vegetables. My husband had the brick chicken special, my son had the mushroom ravioli, and my daughter had the veal piccata. Everything ordered by my table was delicious and devoured. We had a bottle of the Chianti Classico Riserva Peppoli. We drank every drop! I had the spumoni gelato for dessert and my daughter had the chocolate martini.

The service was excellent, although when my husband ordered extra clams for his linguine and clams dish, he was charged double for the entree. Seems a bit excessive... otherwise ambiance was nice, service was very good.

This was the first time I had tried Verona Cucina. My son-in-law enjoyed the Sea Bass, my daughter her pasta, and I had one of the specials, Prime Rib. Service was very good and there was appropriate time between the salads and the entrees. Will definitely be back.
