Great service. Very welcome environment and the vintage motorcycles add to the ambiance. Best Italian Restaurant we have been to in years and there is great attention to detail. The antithesis of Olive Garden.

It's a charming place for a date, an exciting setting for a child, and smile invoking for families and friends. Cafe Veloce is like a little trip to Italy. I can picture motorcycle races going on around me and people gathered around the fire for...More
