A fusion of classic Italian cuisine with modern sensibilities, Verace effortlessly combines fresh ingredients into new interpretations of traditional Italian dishes. The intimate setting pivots around our exposed Woodstone oven creating the warmth you feel when you are among family. Dine outdoors in our cobblestone space with a relaxing water pool and glimmering lights. Start with a selection of meats and cheeses, sliced on our century old Berkel slicer or a flatbread pizza straight from the Woodstone oven. Delight in savoring any of our house-made pastas, hand selected 21-day dry aged USDA Certified Black Angus NY Tuscan-style Strip steak served or classic chicken Parmesan as your entrée. Select one of ten wines by the glass or by the carafe from our sustainable wine barrels. We proudly employ a technologically advanced barrel system in an effort to reduce our impact on the environment by eliminating the waste of bottles and corks. Truly an eclectic taste of Italy.
