Visited with 5 women to celebrate a retirement. The waiter brought wine in a dirty glass. Glasses are already on the table when you get there. Four of the dinners arrived correctly but one dinner we waited an extra 10 min. while our food sat getting cold the waiter said the ticket went into the kitchen wrong. (not our fault!)... More

One of my favorite Italian-inspired restaurants in the area (although favors fancy over authentic). I love the wine on tap, and really enjoyed the burrata and shrimp risotto. They messed up our dessert gelato order but it was all still really good. Loved the flourless chocolate cake. The open kitchen is a nice feature.

I sat outside and there are beautiful seating and a fireplace. I had the Pinot noir on tap and started with a some excellent bread. I then had a Caesar... More

We took our daughter here for her birthday recently, and had a very good experience. The food was terrific, however the portions were on the small side. Our server was was a little overwhelmed but attentive. It was a gorgeous Sunday evening and having the option to sit outside created an extremely comfortable experience. I would definitely recommend Verace.

Nice layout (entrance 'round back) a little warm sitting by the pizza oven but a delightful meal. Generous portions left plenty to take home and enjoy again. Will return.

We came for a date night to enjoy a nice dinner. Knowing the owners, i would have thought it would be a lot better. This is our second time dining at Verace. The pasta with the lobster was amazing and the steak was cut perfectly. Our waitress on the other hand wasn't the best. I am a waitress and i... More

We've been here before as you'll see in my reviews so when I asked my daughter where she wanted to eat for her high school graduation she said "Verace". I made reservations and since we were five explained that I did not want to sit near the 2 person tables. The woman assured me we were nowhere near them. I... More
