We loved the food and the service was also excellent. Wish they would have wild fish instead of farmed since we would
Be willing to pay the price difference.

The food was ok - I didn’t enjoy the risotto - I believe it had marscapone and I prefer a sharper cheese. The service was good however.

Tommy, our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. He was attentive and gave us excellent service. My sister and brother-in-law drove from the south shore and said it was worth the drive. My brother-in-law loved the Italian Wedding Soup and said it is the best one he ever tasted. The jumbo shrimps and salmon were excellent. The carrot cake as well as the tiramisu were delicious. It was our second time eating at La Verita. We will definitely be back and will recommend this restaurant to our family and friends.

Overall the evening was acceptable. A few areas that were not up to my standards included a kir royale that didn’t taste that great and the soup that was served like warm.
Other than that, the rest was as expected.

Great food. Place is always busy and at times you can get forgotten by their wait staff...which isn’t the case in truly great restaurants. Better training or management is required. But I have eaten here 15+ times and I will continue to visit.

This was our second time here. We enjoyed our first experience but the follow up did not meet expectations. Menu was limited and Food was okay but not worth the price. Great venue for neighborhood outting but next time I would drive into town for better selection.

Excellent service comme toujours , notre soirée à la Verità nous a comblés . Mon mari a mangé le filet mignon cuit à la perfection et pour moi ce fut le veau qui était tout simplement délicieux. Les viandes nous fondaient dans la bouche. Service attentionné, excellente table , nous étions ravis .

I have my favourites that I always order such as their grilled octopus which has no rival. We also had the scallops with a sweet cream sauce - salty sweet combination was lovely. Mains were filet mignon done to perfection and orange roughy in Cancun spices with a delectable mango salsa. The desserts divine.

Interesting modern interpretations of classic Italian dishes. Everything was tasty but very fancy. Pricy considering that it is in the West Island and not downtown.

Service and food were excellent. I often ask for a beer to arrive with my meal, 99% of the time it either comes before or not at all. At La Verite when my meal arrived the waiter said and your beer is on the way and it arrived seconds later! A small point but much appreciated. All staff were pleasant and well informed.

Overall everything was fine but not outstanding this time around. Started with the foucaccia which was served at the table. It was served cold and too crispy. Ordered a dry vodka martini but unfortunately not exactly to my liking. As I mentioned, overall the food , as far as my plate was concerned, was fine but not really outstanding this time around. Service was acceptable.

This restaurant was recommended by friends for one item - the grilled octopus appetizer. For that alone, it was worth the visit. I've never had octopus taste so good. We made the reservation for our anniversary. The reservation was handled well. We were shown to a nice table. It was never clear, however, who was serving us. Several people came to the table at different times. It was a little confusing. I prefer to have a rapport with one person being the main server throughout the meal. It also led to us feeling rushed at certain times. Then, I had been hoping for a nice quiet ambience but, because of big groups, found the evening too loud. A nice romantic meal became us not talking much because we would otherwise have had to yell. No restaurant wants to say No to large groups, but this one needs to find a way to segregate the bigger groups or create a corner of quieter tables. This one is picky, but my bloody caesar was so spicy my lips and tongue were tingling and I needed bread before I could taste any food properly. Perhaps ask how spicy to make the bloody caesar. That said, the food was superb. My veal and my husband's steak were perfect. My espresso creme brule was divine, though the coffee was mediocre at best. The wine list is extensive and we appreciated the assistance in selecting one for our meal. Overall, a very nice experience and we will add it to our list for repeat visits.
