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.

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.

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 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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!
