Veeno is a family of true Italian-style cafe restaurants that’s loved by communities up and down the UK. This one on Valpy Street in the centre of Reading, just like all the others, is perfect for relaxing or any casual occasion. From the menu you can expect an impressive selection of Italian wine produced in a family vineyard in Sicily, going from grape to your glass with no middle man in sight. You’ve then got spuntini, meaning little snacks and appetisers, cured meats and cheeses, sharing boards and some fine Italian paninis in the way of food. Veeno Reading is a very short walk from the main Reading train station and place where you really can taste the passion and the love gone into the food and drink. It’s popular, so do reserve a table in advance.
We had the Reserva tasting menu on a quiet midweek evening and it was excellent. The wines were mostly on the dry side and I prefer the sweeter kind however the food was delicious and the waiter helped us really enjoy it. The experience is quite unique in Reading and I would recommend it.
