  • The Rudest Service Ever
    by  on 09/05/2010

    This was the worst service I've had at a restaurant of this supposed caliber. Just plain rude, forgot what was ordered, didn't seem to care. The food was substandard and the prices were inflated.

  • Nice location, great food, great service!!

    Eaten here at least 50 times over the past 6 years....only bad experience was filet mignon ordered rare and cooked medium/medium well (too browned). I shyly sent the tray back, and afterwards received my meal as ordered. Received the check and noticed the entree was missing, compliments of Tony the manager. I didn't ask for this (and honestly comped drinks or appetizer would have sufficed just fine)....but these guys appreciate good people and understand what quality service is about. A great restaurant not only has consistently great service, but also knows how to handle problems with class. This place certainly does that. Probably top 2 Italian Restaurant in Philadelphia....it's a hair pricey but is certainly worth every penny!!

  • Wonderful restaurant
    by  on 06/11/2009

    Yesterday I went to LaVeranda's for the first time. I had always heard the food was terrific! Well, what I had heard was so true. From the moment I entered, I was greeted warmly by the staff. Our server was absolutely terrific! My dinner was equally as great! I will be a returning customer!\r \r And, being from South Philly originally, I welcome good Italian food when eating out. Of course nothing beats my mom's cooking -- but this restaurant comes very close. \r P.S. I just loved those complimentary long hot peppers!

  • Best Seafood and Pasta!

    I have never written a review before but was very motivated to set the record straight when I saw two unfavorable, and in my opinion, UNFAIR reviews posted for La Veranda. We, too, are well traveled (Italy and beyond) and have dined in many fine restaurants abroad and in the States and to be honest, La Veranda remains one of our favorites year after year. On first impression many years ago, we were so impressed, we actually hosted our wedding reception there! Our guests still rave about the food (wood fire grilled Salmon and Chicken Piccata.) \r Put simply, the food is wonderful and everything we have had there has been prepared to perfection. The prices are actually quite reasonable for many dishes and of course, more expensive for others - depending on your order. My husband had the most amazing spaghetti bolognese for around $14.00 and I had one of the fish specials - Dover Sole - for $46.00. The fish was de-boned and served at our table by our experienced waiter. Oh, try the grilled calamari for a delicious appetizer.\r We are not food snobs or anything, but we expect an excellent meal when we go out to a nice restaurant and that is what we always get at this restaurant. Consistently high quality food and service - worth every penny (and calorie!)
