Villa Verone Ratings and Reviews
Our 1st time there and what a find. we were gifted a $100 to check this out and all 4 of us were in agreement: Best Italian Food anywhere! My wife and I are Italian and have grown up eating homemade and also many Italian restaurants in the Chicago metro area, so this is no light recommendation.
We all had different dishes and sampled each other's only to find we loved everything we tasted. I can't remember the last time I took a bite of any food and instantly closed my eyes and grunted primitively in ectasy. Truly this food was FANTASTIC! Loved every dish as well. I sampled: Bracciole, Oso Bucho, Lobster Ravioli, Chicken Parm, and a seafood past w shrimp and scallops. YUM!
We thought based on some of the reviews that we might feel too tight in here but to the contrary it even added to the experience. It felt like everyone was at the same party having a great time of food and fellowship! Italian-style! 5 stars and an A+ from all of us!
It was our 4th time to the restaurant and I've ordered different items each time. Every one has been excellent. Wonderful Italian food. The tables are a tad close together so it can be a little loud for casual conversation. The service is very good. The owner is very personable and walks around and greets the patrons. In the non-winter season, they have a wonderful dining area in the front "yard" of the restaurant that has great ambiance. Highly recommended.
Lovely historic building . Several intimate dining areas. Wonderful bar and entertainment upstairs in the club. Wide assortment of Italian speciatues, We opted for the Chef's Special, which included any appetizer, two entrees, dessert and a bottle of wine for $100. Took home leftovers.
We were there to see a band (friends of ours), good thing for early reservation as I've never seen the place so crowded. My wife's dinner was special of the night (2-4 ozs. filet in a marsal sauce with lots of mushroom, 3 large shrimp , mix vegetables, on a bed of angel hair. I had the chicken vesuvio ( 4 bone in pieces with chunks of roasted potatos. Rather disappointing to say the least as there was no peas , mix vegetables, or pasta. Would recommend this place for any special occasions and the owner is friendly and charming as ever.
The food was FANTASTIC!
I was eager to get to dance to the music of The Beaux but was disappointed in the size of the room; way too small. Their sound system was not working which was not a good thing either. They are a GREAT band but was not able to enjoy listening or dancing to their music.
The commitment of the staff to hospitality was easily recognizable and fun. It was Halloween weekend. 😃 The atmosphere was excessivly noisy and cramped. We would have appreciated entrees on the lighter side. The wait staff was obviously extremely taxed. We would try again and not go for a special occasion.
