    Wow what a place. The food was great one of our party ordered the Ribeye steak and it was excellent. Any of the pasta dishes are excellent, pasta is the main stay for Veronas. Try the Caprese salad its very good. Veronas is busy and popular for locals check on reservation is a good idea.

    Really busy for a Monday evening, but the staff was working hard and took care of us. There was a wedding party there and the kitchen was slow. Overall, it was a pleasant evening, albeit a bit slow.

    This was billed as a mother’s day brunch. There was only eggs Benedict on the menu. The rest was a lunch dinner menu. I was embarrassed bringing my wife and mother there. The food was fine but the menu wasn’t a brunch menu I heard others with the same complaint. The server was very good to be clear.

    The customer service has been the worse I have been to in awhile. Unfortunately from the start the hostess asked for a reservation instead of the usual greet and was quiet the whole time. I wasn’t sure whether to follow her to our table or not. Come to find out there were so many tables and booths available the whole time we were there in the restaurant. I don’t see why a reservation was even necessary. Our server was impatient, informal and just looked so irritated with us. We tried ordering food but she said she would take drinks first she huffed and puffed. Even though we said please and thank you she would just nod and go “mmhmm.” The food was basic no special flavors and simple small portions. Overpriced for the service and food for sure.

    Great place for dining outdoors. Food is always tasty and nicely prepared. The Scallops and the Wedge Salad were superb, but Calamari was mushy. Overall, one of Modesto’s finest!

    This was our second time we’ve dined at Cucina Biazzi in the past few years. As an overnight stop in Ashland it’s a fabulous place to dine. The food and staff are excellent and really make you feel welcome and appreciated. It’s a memorable dining experience and sorry I hadn’t discovered it years ago.

    Our party sat outside. It was very pleasant there. Two of us had pasta dishes, which were both very good. I had the veal piccata, which was also very good. The Bruschetta appetizer was so-so. We wanted Cappuccinos, but their machine wasn’t working.

    This is our local go to favorite for a nice meal and it has never disappointed. They always accommodate my gluten free needs because they actually cook your food to order. My husband and I both opted for the daily special of Parmesan crusted halibut over a bed of mushroom risotto with seasonal vegetables. Followed by the amazing flourless chocolate cake with cream and raspberries. Our server Melissa was friendly and spot on with taking good care of us. Highly recommend!
