During my recent visit to Salem I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Bella Verona. The restaurant’s atmosphere is cozy and inviting and the food is excellent. I had the salmon dinner which was delicious and the portion was very generous.

Stopped in for restaurant week. Three course dinner was $30. Appetizers were amazing (roasted radiccio with gorganzolla, roasted artichoke hearts), entrees were outstanding (veal stew with homemade papparadelle and trout with baby shrimp) and desserts were scrumtuous (tiramisu and crème caramel). Service was wonderful.

This is a nice restaurant. The food is good, and the lemon sorbet is outstanding. À mon avis, $11 pour un petit verre de vin est scandaleux! Maybe, they should give a bigger pour at those prices. But all in all, I will be back...More

Mediocre at best. Waitress was adorable and very helpful. Dinner was a major disappointment. Rubbery flavorless dinner. Meager portions. Vegetable patty was good!

It would be interesting to know what you ate so we could understand your disappointment. You mention the waitress was adorable, that is part of her job to address your complaints. Unfortunately you did not say anything and we are all completely in the dark.

We found this amazing restaurant while walking around. Small, quiet, with the feel of old Italy. The food was a wonderful and perfectly prepared. Our waiter was attentive, helpful and added to our enjoyment of the restaurant, which he has worked at for 15 years....More

We were visiting Salem for a screen on the green event downtown and basically came to Bella Verona as “walk-ins” after our movie. They were very busy with reservations coming in but they also worked us in as well. Thank you hostess! We were able...More
