Everything was delightful. We were seated upstairs we think to allow the restaurant to use more space to make more room and it was wonderful spacing and we felt safe. Staff led by Amanda was a joy and helpful with ideas even as the wine list is long and menu expansive. Each item we ordered was fresh, well prepared and went well with a red Amanda had recommended. We closed the place as our seating was at 7 p m and we plan to return!

We celebrated my sister-in-law’s birthday this past week and was very pleased with our experience. Food was very good and the atmosphere was fantastic. They made us feel very comfortable in these in unpredictable times.

I highly recommend dining here. It is hard to find a dining experience with the caliber of cuisine, wine pairings, and service this establishment offers. I have my favorites in downtown Chicago that cost 5 times as much with comparable cuisine. The last time I had a dessert that was as exciting to the palate was at the premier Auberge Du Soleil in Napa Valley. Try this place and you will be pleasantly surprised, even if you’re a restaurant snob like me.

We celebrated my Dad’s birthday this afternoon at Villa Verone and we loved every bit of it. The food was fresh and delicious, the prices were pretty standard for what we were given, and the service was fantastic. I felt like I was eating a home cooked Italian meal and that means a lot to me. I had the lobster ravioli with shrimp, scallops, and a light tomato cream sauce, my dad had the rigatoni bolognese, my mom had the gnocchi, and my daughters had the manicotti and basic farfalle with marinara. Everything was absolutely delicious but I’d like to note how pillowy the gnocchi was, which is hard to find as most served in restaurants are dense and heavy. For dessert, they brought out tiramisu for my dad’s birthday and it may have been the best and lightest tiramisu I’ve ever had. They honestly did an awesome job and I can’t wait to return to try more of the menu items. We will definitely be back!

Wonderful as usual. Gabriel our waiter whom we’ve had before was great as usual. Food was top notch. Seafood special ravioli was outstanding. Keep up the awesome job. Cant wait for the upper club to open back up so we can dance off all the calories.

Intital impression, front staff very pleasant and nice atmosphere. Our waitress seemed very distracted, and greeted us by asking if any other server had been by. Then proceeded to welcome us back, even though it was our first trip. Brought us a diet coke that we didn't order, and said there was no iced tea. Caprese appetitizer was very nice and refreshing. Dinner was under seasoned for both my husband and I, and we were told there was no crushed red pepper to help. The pollo gorgonzola had too much sauce, not enough gorgonzola flavor, and grilled vegetables were unidentifiable as vegetables due to sauce. The pollo parm had a very acid/tomato flavor that again needed seasoning of some sort to calm it down. The chicken for both meals was well cooked. Also we noticed a napkin had been dropped on the floor and was there for quite some time before a staff member bothered to pick it up, after watching many staff step over it. The porch area looked like it would be very cute place to sit when weather is warmer. Not sure we will return though.

From the second you enter the establishment until we left, the service was outstanding. The food was great, we highly recommend pasta dishes (any one of them will not disappoint). The owner, Pietro came by our table to say hello and is very engaged with all his customers. Great overall experience and highly recommended authentic Italian cuisine.
