Excellent food and service! Great wine advice and overall attention to detail. Would highly recommend and although a small space you can carry on a conversation without competing with room noise.

Three of us had brunch on Saturday, Oct 12. We each ordered different dishes and were each delighted with our choices. Great presentation, perfect. Excellent service, great ambiance. Not too noisy, so we did not have to yell at each other.

Disappointing experience as there are no idication that on Tuesday there is no menu day. And options given are not suitable for us a group. I checked again when I arrived their website no indication about the no menu day.

If you've never been to Vero you are missing out. Great food and outstanding service ensures that a meal here never disappoints! We had the seafood platter to celebrate a special occasion and it was outrageously delicious - everything was cooked to perfection!

Value for the food was reasonable. However, $7 for a tea seems extreme. The bread appetizer was dry and tasted like it was warmed in an oven to make it seem new. The pasta was delicious though.

Had a great atmosphere, cozy little booths and small tables. The service was amazing, our waitress was knowledgable of the menu and pairing of food with drinks. She organized the food coming out of the kitchen to come out just as we finished our appetizers; we had the olives and focaccia bread, they gave us a complementary breaded meatball dish sent from the chef. We each ordered the the crab ravioli and the pesto gnocchi; which was amazing. Overall the experience was amazing, food was priced a little high for my liking but was pretty much worth it.

We ordered pici ‘Bolognese’ and tagliatelle with Lobster and Shrimps. First of all the pasta were not pici and not tagliatelle. Both plates were served with a sort of mafaldini. On the plate with tagliatelle, Lobster and Shrimps, there was no lobster. After asking the waitress, if there was no lobster on the plate, she apologized and brought a piece of lobster, which was more a crayfish. The taste of this plate has nothing to do with Italian cuisine. The sauce tasted like a sweet-sour sauce from the Chinese supermarket. Sorry for the rating, but it’s like that.

Not your nonna's Italian restaurant - the food here is a very modern take on Italian. They had our table ready right on time even thought they were full (it was a Friday night), and the service was very attentive. Dishes were well-explained, and the wine we had was good. We shared one of the evening special appetizers: a mushroom bruschetta with shaved black truffle. It was very different-tasting and took me a couple of bites to get into. My partner enjoyed it right off the bat - final score, very good. My partner had the seafood tagliatelle as her main - it was very tasty with lots of seafood. I had the sweet potato gnocchi with boar bacon. Also very, very good. The chef sent out a couple of amuse bouche too. Don't remember the names of the dishes, but the first was like a croquette, and outstanding. The second was a dumpling with parsley and chilis, and that was our least favourite dish of the evening. The food at Vero is rich, but very tasty. Highly recommend.

We decided to try a new restaurant and were not disappointed. Happened to arrive on a "No Menu Tuesday" on a warm evening in Calgary (how rare) so we sat outside until 10pm and enjoyed every bite. 3 shared appetizers, a choice of 3 mains, and dessert for $45pp - fantastic value.

Hello: we chose this restaurant based on the menu on the website. On Website feature dishes include: fettuccini, pan roasted monkfish, potatoe fondue, organic chicken supreme. Several gluten free items. None of these were on the menu at the restaurant. We are gluten free. The only gluten free item at the restaurant menu was shellfish which I am allergic to. Please update your website. Thank you.

We asked for a quiet table for our date night and got a table for two in a corner - cozy, but not crowded, a bit away from the main dining area - perfect for our night out. Food was excellent - well presented, interesting and delicious combinations, perfect portions. Service was attentive but not intrusive.
The chef came out to check how we liked the meal. A truly lovely evening at a truly great restaurant.

Excellent food, and fantastic service - it shows that the chef and staff love their little bistro. The quality of ingredients and care of preparation of all the dishes and drinks on the menu is outstanding.

Be warned that it is a small place, so you will be in tight with other patrons if it's busy, and it can be a little loud. One of my very favourite restaurants in town regardless. Will happily be back ASAP.

First time here and really enjoyed the gnocchi. I came by with some friends. Only two small minor things. We weren’t asked if we wanted the bill together or separate. It came as one and then couldn’t be split because the bill was closed. So we split it evenly even though we got different things. It would be nice if a change table could be added to the washroom. But very minor things. Service was great and food was amazing.

Loved Vero. Food was amazing.
A couple constructive notes: it took quite a while to get our appetizers even though for the first hour we were only one of 3 tables in the restaurant. Not sure why.
It got busier later so we understood why our entrees took a very long time to come out.
The waiters kept over lapping each other and both trying to serve us, ultimately asking us the same questions. Both were very nice but just a little unproductive as a result.

Decided to give this joint a try after reading mixed reviews.
Average execution of food; disappointed of the seafood in saffron tomato broth - lack of saffron and shrimps with heads on😣

We went at lunch time and the restaurant was only 1/5 filled. I imagine it would be noisy when it is filled because tables are very close to each other.
