Love the fettuccine Alfredo! Small and intimate restaurant with candle lighting for dinner. Nice date night

We have eaten at La Veranda 3-4 times over the past 12-18 months. We live in Clayton so the convenience can't be beat. The menu is fairly simple but have enough diversity to satisfy most. Food has always been good and we haven't had a bad meal yet. Service has also been good. On the verge of being pricey but... More

We've lived in Clayton for 9 yrs & decided to try this resto to satisfy my cravings for ravioli & risotto. I think this restaurant is overrated & overpriced. Ambience is ok, the place was clean but food is below average. I had ravioli with meat sauce which was ordinary & risotto was greasy. Hey, that's just me. 3 stars... More

Returned here recently in hopes that the experience would confirm reports that meals and service had improved. While service has gotten better (although the restaurant had only a small number of customers) the food exhibited little change and did not meet my optimistic expectations. I truly look forward to good Italian meals and so far La Veranda falls short on... More

I live close by and want to like this place. However the food is just ok. We ordered salads to enjoy before our meals and it was like they threw a handful of limp mixed greens and bottled dressing on a warm plate. It's so easy to do a nice salad. Note--This review was from a visit last year. I... More

We moved from the Bay Area a year ago and often eaten at La Veranda in Pittsburg. This was the first time to try the Clayton restaurant. It just as good as an experience. The restaurant serves just the right sized portion and the food is seasoned perfectly.

Coming from an upscale area of the bay area, we were pleasantly surprised by the price point on the menu! It was much more reasonable with an upscale menu. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 glasses of wine, a cup of soup, 3 entrees and desert for $103. The atmosphere is fairly casual. While it tries to look upscale it has... More

Well prepared dishes from Appetizers to deserts, you can satisfy you appetite and enjoy the quaint little town of Clayton. Across from "The Grove" city park. After dinner you can walk the six blocks of historic downtown Clayton.

Granted we chose a Friday night, but early to hopefully stay out of the crowds (it's one of the only restaurants in town and near a senior complex. Need I say more. In was a birthday dinner for my husband and I requested a window seat, which we did get. Unfortunately near families with young kids. Yeah, that's romantic,. The... More

We had a wonderful dinner and were surprised by the excellent food and service for this small town restaurant. Menu had something for everyone and there were a variety of daily specials. We came with another couple for the first time and discovered the $5.00 early bird special on wine and appetizers before 6:00 pm. This was mid-week and the... More
