Fresh, traditional italian food in downtown Palo Alto
One evening after a very long week I made my first visit to Vero. They found space for me at the counter which put me about 5 feet from the kitchen line. As I enjoyed my meal I occasionally chatted with the crew as they prepared and served the offerings of the day. Being so close to the preparation process was fascinating, my first experience of cooking as a spectator sport!
Vero's food is as advertised: well executed locally sourced, traditional italian dishes. The restaurant itself is a friendly, upscale yet relaxed establishment where one can feel comfortable sharing a meal with the entire family or just with that someone special.
Do not miss the panna cotta! Made at Vero it is truly sublime and one of the reasons I keep coming back for more!
