In fair Verona where we lay our scene…reads the prologue to Romeo & Juliet, and if this Italian eatery is anything to go by, there could be love in the air around Buchanan Street station. We’re in love at least, with the homely cooking served up at Verona on Regent Street in Glasgow city centre. Their menu of classic Italian dishes is perfect for a romantic evening in the heart of the city, or for a pre-theatre dinner.
Verona is a restaurant name that evokes the greatest love story ever told – it’s named after the Italian town that gave setting to Romeo & Juliet – and certainly the relationship between Italy and Scotland has been a long and fruitful one. Well, compared to Mr Montague and Ms Capulet, most relationships seem long and fruitful, but believe us on this. Since the Italians began coming to Glasgow in the late 19th century, their contribution to Scottish cuisine has been huge, and at this Regent Street ristorante, that tradition lives on. Verona proudly provides the public of Glasgow city centre with an array of Italian favourites, from pizza and pasta to some esoteric offerings such as vitello and arancini.
The menu at Verona is always an event in itself, but it is on occasions with a romantic edge that it really shines. Their pre-theatre menu – two courses for just shy of 12 quid – is more than reasonable, and the perfect way to begin a date, whilst their speciality Valentine’s choices are guaranteed to be a hit. At this city centre establishment, high quality Italian cuisine meets Scottish hospitality in stylish surrounds, just around the corner from Buchanan Street station. Make sure you book ahead: Regent Street is a prime dining location, and tables do go quickly!
Very good value for money. Menu fairly extensive and varied. Friendly staff who welcome you as you arrive. Service very efficient with food served piping hot. Visited 5 times now and yet to be dissapointed.
Our table was ready for the requested. Service was excellent as was the food and choice of food on the menu was also excellent. Also very reasonably priced.
Great food great atmosphere and great prompt service despite being extremely busy. Would definitely return and would definitely recommend. A little gem in the city centre
Staff, food, service - all exceptional . Very welcoming and attentive staff. Would highly recommend a visit . Staff shook out hands as we were leaving/ so nice
Hi our experience was great right up until we went to pay the bill !!!!! On the Menu the Rose Wine was priced at £6.95, we thought oh that's a great price, we ordered 2 bottles, and a Red. When getting money together the waiter (who said he was the Manager!), then told us the Rose Wine was £22 a bottle, there was a mistake on the Wine List!!! Funny how he didn't mention this when we ordered! Bear in mind the wine was a Rose Zinfandel which he probably bought at the Supermarket for £4.00. He said the Printers had made a mistake on the Wine List. He obviously knew this when we ordered the wine so why didn't he say so at the time. We really felt he was at it !!! We ended up paying for one bottle of wine at £22 but I'm afraid we will not be going back, this was our second time in Verona and we had booked again because we really liked it. I'm afraid we will not be going back - bad experience !!!!!
We have enjoyed a few meals at this restaurant in the past. I don't know what happened this time! Service was slow, the waiter forgot to put our order in so we waited a long time for the starters. He looked exhausted & uninterested. The usual great service is why I booked this return visit. The carbonara was poor , tiny bits of ham through the spaghetti & each dish was swimming in garlic- too overpowering. My pasta al forno was ok but nothing compared to the last time we dined here.we didn't even get asked if we wanted a dessert, so we left. I have already booked Verona for next Friday , I'm thinking of cancelling but might return in the hope the restaurant is on usual form & maybe this time was a 1 off. Also I felt sorry for the couple seated next to the coat rack, waiters and diners kept bumping them & their table.
Excellent service, excellent food. A truly great experience. We had a fantastic meal at Verona. The waiter was very helpful, very friendly and very attentive. Food was amazing. This place was recommended to us by a friend and I would definitely recommend it to others.
The food at Verona was lovely. There were four of us and we enjoyed our meal. The staff were very attentive and friendly. I will be booking Verona again.
