Vero's cuisine has been consistently good for the many years we have gone there. The food is not over-prepared with globs of cheese, sauces or salad dressing etc. It is tastefully simple, and well presented. We love the lasagna, the linguine with clams, the salads and their specials. Even when the restaurant is full, you can still have a conversation... More

Dinner for five was perfectly served by very attentive staff. Following the waiter's advice, we ordered multiple dishes to share. They were absolutely delicious. The suggested wine went well with the entire meal. It was a pleasant surprise to find such good Italian food.

We followed the warm recommendation and were mighty disappointed. The food was average and below. The sauce of the mussels felt like out of the can. The Salmon was average. The duck was tasteless, a bit below the cauliflower and potatoes that accompanied it. All in all not worth it. The truth is that we were warned: we arrived there... More

As I'm typing, I realize only now that my meal didn't include Italian food, though it was on the menu. The restaurant is Italian, but I ordered the Sea Bass and Mushroom special, and their tiramisu. The fish was excellent with a delicate white wine sauce with the mushrooms in generous pieces surrounding the perfectly prepared piece of fish. It... More

The dishes I tasted were excellent - delectable calamari for hors d'oeuvres, delicate sole with capers on a bed of spinach, beautifully seasoned lamb shank on polenta. I wish the service had been as good. The serving of wine by the glass was skimpy. Empty water glasses remained empty. Even though one of us was still eating, they wanted to... More

Visiting the area and arrived here after leaving another restaurant. Vero was much more quite. The food was excellent and so was the service. The best part was the value. Would definitely recommend for a solid dinner with great ingredients at a reasonable price.

There food is consistently good - as is their desserts. Their service is prompt too whether I'm there for a quick weekday lunch or for dinner. I would recommend their raviolis and oh yes! the Panna Cotta ...

My husband and I had dinner here last weekend and it was perfect. I had the salmon and my husband had the pasta with short ribs. Both were perfect! The waiter recommended a lovely Italian red wine which we both enjoyed. I was pleased to see that the portions were just the right size, not too huge. The apple tart... More

..the Noise!!! I want to go back after the holidays. We were tucked away in a booth at the far end, while a business Christmas party of 12 went OTT at a table at the entrance ... The service was excellent, the food was very good, too (especially the lamb, but also the appetizers), and the apple crust with vanilla... More

A nice italian restaurant sit in Palo Alto downtown which is likely the busiest dinning location for dinner these days. So first of all, I'll go over the good things. The food is good. I'd definitely recommend the antipasti specially for group dining. It's a tapas-like set of dishes that can be shared and makes an excellent appetiser. As per... More
