La Veronica Pizza Restaurant

Being a vegetarian and an avid pizza fan, I have visited this place many times. The atmosphere is that of nice dimmed lighting (inside), house music and friendly staff. They have an outside terrace in Plaza George Orwell and the food is very tasty - lots of interesting, well-presented salads and some unusual and very innovative pizzas.
My last two visits however, have left me rather disappointed. Reason being the service. I'm not sure how many staff they have, but it seems that they are lacking somewhat in the kitchen department. The last time I went we waited an hour for our pizzas. Then this time, we had to wait 3/4 of an hour after our salads and I think it's fair to say that many other customers were looking around with that "Where the hell is my food" look.
All good things are worth waiting for, but come on, we all have our limits - employing another chef or two would certainly make the experience far better and I don't think they have cash-flow problems as the place is packed practically every night.

  • Hi!

    I came across your blog as I was searching for information on La Veronica. I tried it yesterday and really liked it!

    I'm a vegetarian too and I can really relate to your posts! I have also been to most of the places you review.

    Just wanted to say hi!

  • Hi Virginia,

    Nice to hear your comments. Being a vegetarian yourself, can you recommend any places that I may not know about?
