"Cramped, limited food items (but understandable for a wine bar), and quality just ok. Not terrible but not memorable."

"A disappointing experience, except for the guy who waited out table and made our drinks. He was great. And the prices are fine.
But beware: the menu is very limited and the quality of the food is simply not up to New York standards. The music is loud. There's no atmosphere; it's closer to a dive bar than an UES restaurant.
We were the only people there at 7:30. By 8:30, one other couple was sharing the restaurant (all on a Sunday evening). Not surprising, I suppose, but certainly unappetizing."

"Who rates the restaurants
This is s 20 something joint not a great place
Loud, kitchen in dining room that smells. Entire space needs to be painted, polished and re-thought.
This was a beautiful charming wine bar with clean smart design when it first opened."

"LOVE! Vero is so cute and fun! The food is just right! Great portion size and delicious wines to pair with (and the staff makes great reco's). Definitely a fun night with friends if you're not looking for just a bar scene.
Thanks!"

"My wife loved her tortelli (I would order it too, based on the bite I had) and I also loved my Truffle Mac N Cheese with Prosciutto. The noise level was a little loud, but that's to be expected in a smaller space with tables as close as they are. It's NYC, so what are you going to do? We've been here before for paninis, but glad we came back to try the pasta. Good wine listing as well."

"Had a light dinner here - shared a couple of plates. The turkey panini was delicious the pizzas where not as impressive. The food is good and the wine is delicious. This place is small and cozy you have to be ok with sitting very close to your neighbors!"
