Authentic Italian competently delivered and paired with a very nice wine menu. A rare gem of a restaurant. But its a cramped affair - tables right on top of each other and waiters playing twister to serve everyone. And that's the rub - exemplary main...More

Just had dinner there on Thursday night while in town for a conference. Very small place, dark, has some old world atmosphere though. I had the Chicken Parm which was excellent. Not huge but comfortable portion. Some interesting specials each night. Very attentive staff. We...More

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.

Terrific meal for all four of us, including dessert. Waiter was Todd who was excellent, professional and personable service. Along with a great European atmosphere. A five star experience.

Small restaurant with the classic American Italian vibe, for example piano covers of 90s songs play in the background, rich and warm interior. Good flavors but not as crisp and attentive as our go to Firenze, entirely different vibe. Cute wait staff and nice family...More

Bell Verona is a jewel. The atmosphere is great. I have never had an appetizer or entree that wasn’t fantastic. The staff are great. Go enjoy make sure you make reservations it is a little small but good things come in small spaces.
