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.

I have never had a bad experience here. Tonight I had the fresh heirloom tomatoes salad with burrata cheese with heirloom arugala, follow by the halibut special with artichoke risotto.

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.

We were just getting to church at the House Modesto and being from Tracy wanted to make a reservation for dinner afterwards. I used the Open Table app and selected this restaurant.

It was a little difficult to find but our great experience started from the greeting of the hostess to the beautiful restaurant. I was a little leery that the restaurant was not packed on a Saturday night.

We ordered Bruschetta, clam chowder and the sea bass special. All were amazing. The tiramisu was also wonderful. Our waiter Jeff was perfect. Attentive, informative and the consummate professional.

Thank you Open Table for finding this great restaurant.

I've eaten at Verona's numerous times. The food is always very good and the chef will work with you on any modifications. This time I had a salad with heirloom tomatoes and faro, topped with goat cheese. I also had the halibut special.
There are numerous pasta dishes . Think most diners are repeat customers.

We came here to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were seated on time and the service was very good except we never got the bread. We got plates but no bread. Other than that the food was excellent. Nice menu selections and a nice variety of specials. I had the braised short ribs special and my wife had the scallop special. Both were very good. Highly recommend this place for a special occasion as it is a bit pricey.
