About

A fusion of classic Italian cuisine with modern sensibilities, Verace effortlessly combines fresh ingredients into new interpretations of traditional Italian dishes. The intimate setting pivots around our exposed Woodstone oven creating the warmth you feel when you are among family. Dine outdoors in our cobblestone space with a relaxing water pool and glimmering lights. Start with a selection of meats and cheeses, sliced on our century old Berkel slicer or a flatbread pizza straight from the Woodstone oven. Delight in savoring any of our house-made pastas, hand selected 21-day dry aged USDA Certified Black Angus NY Tuscan-style Strip steak served or classic chicken Parmesan as your entrée. Select one of ten wines by the glass or by the carafe from our sustainable wine barrels. We proudly employ a technologically advanced barrel system in an effort to reduce our impact on the environment by eliminating the waste of bottles and corks. Truly an eclectic taste of Italy.

Great food most definitely an authentic Italian restaurant. Just wish the tables weren't so close together. I could barley have a conversation with my spouse because we were to busy hearing the conversations going on next to us

I had the chicken parmesan,the chicken was very fresh but the pasta was so watery that it made the chicken soggy. And also the spagetti was in a bowl with sauce, and it seemed to me that the spagetti was not strained enough so it made the spagetti very soggy as well .Besides that the service was great.

I have been to Verace many times before. I was overly impressed with our server Michael. From the minute we sat down he was bright, cheery and extremely efficient. I was also impressed with the new manager, peter. A gentleman and classy. Looking forward to coming more again! The only suggestion I would have and it has prevented me from coming here more often, would be the one by the class selections. I love a good California cab, And not from the tap.

The shrimp scampi was good but portion was small. Brussel sprouts were black, like eating charcoal. Server brought a new one which was much better. Won't go back anytime soon.

everything worked for my party of four. The waitress who took our order was knowledgeable and very friendly. The servers were efficient and knew who got what.
The food was prepared exactly as requested and was excellent.
Since we don't live nearby we have not been to Verace as often as it deserves and have never been disappointed.
This is not a red sauce Italian restaurant so I would not call it "True" Italian.

Loved the food, service and atmosphere. The one very significant negative is the wine list especially by the glass. It’s horrible you should completely overhaul your wine list from top to bottom. I frequently go to all your restaurants, H2O, Monsoon, Verace and the wines are terrible. It really makes me rethink my decision to eat at these places. Please re-evaluate it.

Outstanding flavors in this past week's wine dinner preparation! Highly recommend these special preparations for Wednesday Wine Dinners. Three delicious specially prepared courses with paired wine for each course. An excellent value! Knowledgeable and attentive waitstaff and managers.

I usually don't write reviews, however Verace is exceptional and deserves one! We stumbled upon this place browsing Italian restaurants on Opentable and were enticed by the reasonable prices and the ambiance of the photos shared. We went and immediately fell in love. It has since become a staple in our relationship and we have gone back at least once every two months. We recently just moved upstate and I miss this restaurant terribly! The food cannot be beat and the service has always been outstanding. 5+ stars. Can't wait to go back when we're visiting Long Island.
