“Cozy Location Downtown Sycamore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

Small and intimate, Villa Verone's food is very good and so is the service. Entertainment on the weekend usually features excellent talent. Reservations accepted.

“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 November 2012

We haven't been there in a while, but before the Kids we were there two to three times a week we have moved since and dearly miss this place.Mic is a great front guy and Petro is a wonderful owner. The wine selection is perfect for us and the menu and quality of food is just as good as my mamas.Really its better don't tell her. Sometimes a little loud when live ent. but alaways feel like family. any time we venture to Sycamore now its mainly to stay the night and enjoy a long wonderful dinner at Villa Verone. See ya soon The Behnke Family.

“More than adequate”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Portions are big and tastes are decent but there's nothing above average. The decor is agreeable. The noise levels on the weekends makes conversation impossible because the very good jazz pianist insists on amplification in a tiny room already filled with diners whose talk is already loud. I would recommend this restaurant in the absence of better places in the area.

“good food, horrible service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Food was great; however, service was terrible. Right off the bat, host never greeted us, took menus, and slapped them on the table without a word. We were unsure that they were even for us. The older blonde server was no different. She was rude and rushed us even though we walked in an hour before they closed. Server announced loudly how ready she was to go home - purposefully within earshot. Then we waited quite awhile for her to come and take our orders after asking for a second to think about them. When we wanted our food boxed she rudely said "yeah well we are closed now." Mind you, at that point it was 10:03 (they closed at 10pm). Too bad for this, because the chef/cuisine and friendly bus boys were the only good quality to this establishment, who's service was infuriating. My girlfriend and I don't go out to nice places very often, so it's too bad that this is the place we chose.

“Great Local Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2011

Villa Verone is a great little italian place. They have a good variety with a very fair price. Most dishes are more red suace based but they are very good.
