We went Saturday night, everyone was out because the weather had broke so they overbooked. Sat 35 minutes after our reservation time and dinner took almost two and a half hours.
I had the Veal Scalopini and the portion was tiny. My wife had the seafood pasta and loved it.
The atmosphere is always fun and energetic and the place has great ambiance.
I gave it a 4 star because in fairness we have eaten there 3 times and would have rated it 4.5 to 5.
Last Saturday was slightly off. I would recommend going at an earlier time or different day if you want to experience great food.
It's a very intimate environment, which is good and not-so-good. The tables are very close together so my chair kept getting bumped into. The servers are busy so a bit brisk and not overly friendly. The food is good and well priced/affordable.
Villa Verone is charming and I look forward to the outdoor dining when the weather warms up. If you're looking for a place to spend a quiet evening with long, relaxing conversation this may not be it. Perhaps a corner table would work, but the energy is not conducive to relaxation in my opinion.
The restaurant was very busy so it was loud. The rooms were quaint and inviting. Server was good. I asked for gluten free pasta and they were able to accommodate me with one type of pasta so that was great! They had a special "date" price which was reasonable.
Our second visit here; the food is fresh and the marinara sauce is our favorite. Every visit to Chicago will include this Italian Cuisine with home made pasta. Bon Apetite
Always a good time dining with Pietro, Willy, and all the gang at Villa Verone. You’re well taken care of, and food is authentic. Love their Limoncello dessert!
Food was fantastic! Very knowledgeable wait staff that gave perfect recommendations for our first time there. Great value, we will definitely be back
Had a wonderful time. The reservation put us right where the band was. Lovely dinner and authentic Italian that tasted great! The martini's were also amazing.
Amazing Food. Wonderful staff. Owner makes you feel like family!!!
We had the best smoked salmon appetixer ever. Entrees were awesome. Homemade tiramisu topped off a great meal. Service was attentive without being rushed.
This was my second visit. Was glad they could get our party of 8 in with short notice. The appetizers were delicious - the folks that had lasagna loved it. Those of us that ordered other items were not as impressed. Service was just okay.
Great food & service. There was a birthday going on & fun to see the whole staff come out & sing. Our server was excellent & food was really good. Big portions too. Highly recommend dining here. Reminded me of The Italian Village in Chicago.
As always excellent. :)
Great food, great service. But not the place to go for a quiet evening. I asked for a nice table for a birthday celebration....my reservation note wasn’t even acknowledged. We were crammed in between two large parties upstairs that were incredibly loud. WAY TOO NOISY. We could barely speak to each other. They pack tables in this place like sardines. Uncomfortably close together.
Waiter overwhelmed. Didn't understand what Al Dente meant. Took a long time to get food. Never checked to see how the food was.
As usual, food was well prepared and delicious. Service was attentive and leisurely in pace. Noise level was a bit high at times, but the restaurant was full when we arrived. This is one of our favorite local family-owned restaurants. Looking forward to dining out on the terrace when the weather improves.
We love this restaurant! Great food, great service, & great atmosphere!
Highly recommend checking them out, it’s an experience not just a meal.
We live in Geneva and we always enjoy a meal at Villa Verone. Service is friendly, food is wonderful (nightly specials), menu is varied, desserts are to die for, prices are reasonable, and ambiance is unique (it's located in an old house). The patio is wonderful on summer evenings and the upstairs lounge offers live music and dancing on many weekends.
Had a very good time — service, food, and ambiance were all great :)
Food and service was Outstanding as usual
The service was outstanding the food was phenomenal the entertainment was lots of fun I would highly recommend this restaurant for a great night out
We LOVED our dinner at Villa Verone. The food was outstanding, drinks perfectly made and service by Dino was exceptional!!! Everyone we encountered was service oriented and made sure we had a good time. We had a group of 10 and had an amazing experience. Such a great ambiance. We will surely come back!
Our waiter Dino was informative, humorous and was a wonderful tenor when he broke into song. The salad was fresh and tasty, the wine was an excellent baby amarone which paired with our main courses perfectly. The tiramisu was light and delicious.
Took my very culture -savvy 12-year-old niece to this charming authentic Italian restaurant for her birthday. First, when I say authentic, I mean that I now plan to bring my father here. His thick Italian blood has made him terribly critical of any dish that dares compare itself to our family recipes from the old country. He'll love it. Second, the wait staff and owner of the restaurant made my niece's birthday so special. They Had conversation with her, treated her to a birthday dessert, and sang Happy Birthday in Italian!
Waiter was amazing
Great service and delicious food. You get a lot of food!!!
First time here for our group of 5 and quite impressed. Have driven by a few times and finally made a reservation. Don't wait too long like us. A M A Z I N G all around! Can't wait to get back there and experience it with the outside ambience. The tones of flavors in our pasta dishes were so amazing. Service exceptional and ambiance was....well, drive by and make a reservation and witness it for yourself. Thank you for the delightful setting and food. See you again soon!
Such a great night! Loved the music & food!
Great food and even a singing waiter!!
Delightful dinner at Villa Verone. Nice Italian menu - All delicious!
excellent food very authentic The best Italian food I have ever had. Will return soon
Pietro always does a Great Job !! Food is fresh, authentic, and excellent - Upper Club afterwards is hard to beat, even in downtown Chicago
This ia yhe sexond time this month one of three meals were not eaten due to quality. This time it was the lasagna with meat sauce that was far beyond too salty. The other two meals were OK but not extraordinary. We do lime the service and the decor.
Villa Verone is a family favorite and our go-to celebration place. Food is fantastic but the atmosphere and staff always make any visit special. No matter how busy they are, you never feel rushed. They always have recommendations and make sure your meal is special. They always make us feel like family.
Absolutely fantastic experience! Dino was our server and made us feel like we were close family members. He and the kitchen team created an off-menu experience that made it one of the best meals you'll find anywhere. This is your place to celebrate a special occasion or special someone.
Food and service was good. Bit pricey. Dim lighting, watch your step as floor is uneven for seniors.
The waiter forgot about us to give us our check... waited so long had to send kids home with Grandma to wait for him. Ordered buttered noodles for little kids very costly. No kids menu.
Villa Verone was a fabulous, authentic Italian restaurant. Great old world italian cozy decor, hands on owners, delicious meals and engaging wait staff.
Enjoyed the fresh fish, ravioli and chicken entrees. Fabulous desserts! Will be back soon!
We had great time with food which was outstanding
My wife loves the Fetuchinni but the Lobster special was outstanding
We love the fixed price meal 2 Entree’s 1 Appetizer a Bottle if wine “another outstanding” and 1 desert , $99.00
We were seated in a small porch only 3 tables, very nice for any occasion, no entertainment yet as our reservation was for 5:30 but great entertainment during previous dinners on the second floor
The food and service were very good.We had to switch tables because when the door opened the cold air was blowing on us.Our next table was crowded against the wall.That is the only drawback. It's the close quarters.
We had a fabulous girls’ night out celebrating a friend’s birthday. Our server was wonderful.
