I have never had a bad experience here. The humus trio is delicious and a must have when dining. I love you can create your own pasta and flavors too.

Great meal in a little, hidden away location off the square in Independence. Lasagna was outstanding as was the rigatoni with sausage and Rosa sauce. If you like Italian food you HAVE to seek cafe Verona out and experience their food!!
