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.
Food and service were excellent as usual. Reduced stars on ambience and overall because we were seated next to a table of 12 that were one of the loudest groups I’ve ever sat next to. We were with friends we haven’t seen in several months, and it was not only difficult to have a conversation but hard to block out. It really dismissed the experience. I’m not sure if it’s possible, but perhaps a large, very boisterous group like that might have been separated, maybe upstairs, from all the rest of us at smaller tables that made up the rest of the dining room who were trying to have a normal dinner conversation.
When we travel out this way, Villa Verone is always a top pick for us The restaurant has a cozy setting but delivers on all fronts. If you are in the area and want to enjoy great food, a fun and unique environment, I highly recommend dining here.
Delicious food and very good service! Loved that Pietro stopped by our table a few times to be sure we were happy. The Upper Club is a vibrant bar that draws quite a crowd on Saturday night - good bands perform there! Highly recommend this restaurant and bar for casual dining or a special occasion!
Very nice off the beaten path spot for dinner , drinks and music at the upstairs bar. Just a bit too noisy for conversation but after a few cocktails everyone is deaf anyway.
Good food, excellent service!
Very fun; stayed for drinks the best night I have had out in down town Geneva.
Dino was our server and he made it quite the experience. New favorite place!
It was too loud! We were seated next to a table of 16 for a birthday party. We asked to be moved. We were told there were no other tables. My food was just average. My husband, brother in law & sister in law all said their food was great. I guess that I ordered the wrong thing. I was disappointed. Not sure that I want to go back.
Food isn’t always good the drinks however are expensive , small and week.
Waiter was fantastic, plenty of singing and a wonderful time was had by all
Villa Verone is a wonderful restaurant serving the best authentic Italian food in the Fox Valley area. We’ve eaten there many times and every meal has been delicious.
We have been going to this restaurant for years now and thoroughly enjoy the food, the service and the atmosphere. A wonderful place for two of you on date night, and just as appropriate for a day/night out with friends and/or family.
We are Italian and always enjoy the wonderful food that is prepared with authentic expertise. Our family loves the freshness and incredible taste of every dish that we have shared.
The added bonus is the energetic bar scene and the great bands that play on the weekends.
So happy that we have found this fantastic gem!
Bon appettito and salute'!
The food is amazing! The staff is very friendly. Great live music. One of my favorite restaurants.
I took my girlfriend there on Saturday for Valentines day as we could not go out on Wednesday. Before I picked her up I dropped off a dozen red roses in their package and asked if they could be delivered to the table after we were seated.
True to their word they not only delivered the flowers, but, they removed them from their package trimmed them, put them in a vase for me and spread them out - great job.
Our waiter was fantastic, the food was simply amazing and the wine tasted great. After it was all done, our waiter gave us free desert even though we were almost full and wished us a happy Valentines day - what amazing service and fantastic hospitality.
After dinner we enjoyed the live band in the other room for several hours - the service in that room was just as good as the one in our dining area. The owner was walking around checking on people, greeting them, making sure everything was going well - that is how a business should be ran - such attention to detail.
We cannot wait to go back.
Great job Villa Verone.
If I went over to a friend's house whose mother was Italian, it would have been damn fine food, with similar presentation. That is, nothing special, just good, basic, old style Italian. Portions are adequate, not too big, not too small. The building itself is an actual house, fitted to be a restaurant, reminiscent of Meson Sabika in Naperville. The owner is definitely old world "ey, ow-you-doin" Italian, as was our server. Space was tight, but not uncomfortably so. Very cozy ambience.
The problem I had is that they charged "fancy Italian" prices, nearly double of what we would have expected for the quality of food we got. Maybe they jacked up the prices because it was Valentines Day 2 days prior, but we definitely weren't served $20 lasagna. Maybe $12 at most. The asparagi appetizer was something I could have made myself - it was that straightforward - but they charged $15 for it. And the martinis were $12 each, but made with house ingredients. Don't get me wrong, I wouldn't have had an issue with the prices had the quality matched.
In the end, it's cozy and quaint, with a great old world feel. It's just too expensive for what you get.
Excellent service. Very good food. Megan is an excellent bartender and made it an excellent experience.
We were there to celebrate valentine day since I had to work on the actual day. I had the special for the day which was a New York strip steak with rigatoni and garnish with large shrimps, portabello mushrooms, red and green peppers. My wife had the veal francese over a bed of angel hair pasta. My caesar salad had anchovy with it and her wedge salad had just about everything under the sun. From salad to entrée, all selections was outstanding except I wish they would have given me a bit more pasta. Oh, did I mention there was an outstanding band (The Beaux) playing there that night too. Definitely a very enjoyable was achieved!
The food and service are excellent. They serve some of the best Italian food I've every had. They have very good bands in their lounge area, especially if you like music from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The bands start at 8:00. Unfortunately around 9:30 a crowd of noisy and rude 30-somethings up consistently show up and take over half of the lounge area. As a result we've given up going to Villa Verone for dinner and dancing.
We had such a great experience. My husband and I went there for our anniversary. The food was great and the entertainment was just around the corner. 5 stars all the way!!
Hands down the best Italian restaurant in the western suburbs!
Wonderful really good food and service
We had a great time on Valentine’s. The atmosphere was warm and inviting, as was the wait staff. They recommended a nice red wine while we waited for our table (a short wait because we were early for our reservation). When we ordered our food they had no issues accommodating our requests and the food came quickly. It was also delicious - we had the butternut squash ravioli and the lobster ravioli. Our waiter also was very friendly and clearly enjoyed being able to create a nice dining experience.
Truly the best Italian restaurant in the Chicagoland area. Amazing food and amazing people.
My Valentine had a date night at our favorite restaurant Pietro Verone (Villa Verone). Lucky for me my two favs were there, Joe and Pietro. The food was fantastic as always! Thank you so much to all the staff at Villa Verone!
Ask for Dino. He will make your experience so much better and will make you feel at home and valued as a customer. The food is always amazing and the place itself is so beautiful warm and cozy. Highly recommended, dessert is the only place that is slightly lacking but their cannolis are great!
Food was delicious! Service was fantastic! I can't wait to come back in the spring/summer to eat in the patio.
Place is great. Staff invested in the experience. Food very good.
This place is always a fantastic time. Great food and great music in the bar after dinner. Nobody does it like Pietro! Great host and wait staff. Never a disappointment!
Overall a good experience but I thought the Lasagna was too much meat and not enough pasta, not recommended. I would go again but not anytime soon.
Great Italian food in a rustic, cozy environment. A real hidden gem!
Went there for an undisclosed birthday and made reservations. Food was ok, server was very nice. Our salads were forgotten so we just accepted our entrees when the came out.
Loved the food and the service, as always!
Delicious food, great service, band was outstanding, fun night!
