We were in town for a wedding, staying at a nearby hotel. We found Cafe Verona on TripAdvisor. The service was top notch, Alex our waiter did an excellent job. The food and drinks were very good. The lasagna is tasty and very Italian. It is in a rustic old building downtown and there is plenty of parking. We highly... More

As a group of four foodies who try many different restaurants, generally in and around the KC area, we venture out from St. Joe each weekend to satisfy our tastes away from home. We chose Italian a few weeks ago, and we are happy that we selected Cafe Verona as our next stop. The building itself is very cool and... More

Went with a party of 6 last night. Nice location and very pleasant atmosphere. Had a 6:30 reservation and was seated immediately upon arrival. The place was busy as we found that Wednesday night is half price wine. Service was pretty attentive but not great, had to ask for sweetener for my tea 3 times (I will chalk it up... More

Cafe Verona has a wide menu and nice atmosphere. I think the salad could be improved; basically lettuce with a little dressing. However our entre's were good. I particularly liked the Chicken Spedieni. My wife had Swordfish and she liked it. Desert was very good. We had the Gelato which comes in the tiny chocolate tea cups. Really a nice... More

Caesar salad was good, not too drenched with dressing. I ordered a create your own kind of dish but was served the wrong sauce. Once the correct dish was served, I did like it but would order something different next time.

A very quaint cafe, located right in the business district of downtown Independence. The food was very good, served by friendly staff in a comfortable atmosphere.

Glad we made the 30 min drive from Lees Summit - well worth the drive. The fresh baked focaccia with herb olive oil dipping sauce was extremely flavorful. Delicious house made blue cheese dressing floated on a side salad with cucumber slices, pepperoncini, tomatoes and the perfect slice of good quality cheese. This forecasted how happy our taste buds would... More
