The food was absolutely amazing. My girlfriend and I had eggplant, Gnocchi with a tomato cream sauce, and Penne, Veal Scalapini with artichokes, mushrooms etc. They have a fine selection of wine, and the owners Georgi, Sheila are wonderful people, and have an absolutely beautiful business. I can't wait to bring my Napolitano mother here!

Our multi-generational group was heartily welcomed by the gracious owners and the excellent service then began. The staff is well-seasoned and fun to work with. The menu stocked with many favorites yet they always offer an extensive "specials" board. Veal & mushrooms, Tagliatelle w/veal, veal scaloppini, penne pasta with delicious salads and bruschetta were all superbly prepared and greatly enjoyed.... More

This Italian restaurant was recommended by our B&B host, and overall was very good. The food was excellent, and the wait staff were very attentive. The restaurant is small and quite cozy. A few tables are very close to each other and it is distracting to hear conversations at the adjacent table(s). Reservations are a must.

We went on a Sunday evening. Liked the menu choices and the chef accommodated a dietary restriction with no hesitation we had the bolognese., veal with mushrooms and two fish dishes. All cooked to perfection. The garden salad was full of fresh vegetables. A wonderful experience ,it is very small so if you don't like people near you it's not... More

The food was very good and worth the money spent. Despite it being small inside, the excellent service from the staff is very welcoming. Being from Chicago, ive had good tiramisu before, however this is probably the best so far.

Four of us had dinner - each had a salad or appetizer with everyone ordering a pasta dish. Portions were large and red sauce (3 of 4 had a pasta with red sauce the base) was very good, however, very little seafood with their "seafood pasta" and prices of salad excessive. Wine was served in very small glasses. Don't misunderstand,... More

Bella Verona is like many of the restaurants we visited when in Italy. Wonderful food, service and ambience. My husband declared the bolognese "one of the best he ever had", and he always tries it. My rabbit pappardelle (stew) was wonderful. Lovely evening. Highly recommended.

My husband is Italian and his mother was a great cook so it is difficult to find a place he loves. Well this is it! We have been coming here since they first opened and have become acquainted with owner, wife and waitstaff, they are wonderful and accommodating. The food is delicious and will even make a dish for you!... More

Food was excellant; however it was a slow service night. Very good servings. First time I have had non-tomato based minestrone.
