We were impressed that this restaurant made a greater attempt at being Italian than the standard Americanized pizza and spaghetti Italian restaurant. Prices are quite reasonable. The $5 soup, the wedding soup, could have been a meal in itself. My husband ordered sword fish which...More

Food was great! Portion for my short rib stuffed ravioli was very small (3 ravioli) more like an appetizer

You can dine inside or out on the patio, but the food is always good. They have a wide selection of pasta dishes as well as very good meatballs and salads. The Chicken Carciofi is my favorite, but also love their salads.

Quiet place on the Independence Square. Great food and the staff are so nice! The menu has lots of good items to choose from and their specialty drinks are fabulous.

Wow. What a cool joint in the heart of independence MO, and one of the best Italian meals I've had ever. We started with the mozzarella cheese stack. It's a layered breading and mozzarella dish unlike the frozen cheese sticks we're all used to. I...More

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here. Zoey gave us excellent service. The Sicilian Artichoke Dip was fabulous as was the Shrimp Carbonara. My wife loved the Salmon Semplice and all of the breads were delicious. We'll definitely return.

I'm really disappointed with Cafe Verona in Independence. Yesterday, we made a reservation for 12. As a vegan, I figured I could probably get pasta with a simple olive oil garlic sauce and sautéed vegetables. I called them to see if the chef could make...More

Wonderful atmosphere. Limited menu. Outdoor dining. Good service. Each time that I have tried something new, I have not been disappointed.

I am sorry to hear this. We have always been served a nice sized portion. I, too, would have mentioned this to the server.
