Bella Verona is a little taste of Italy, right in Salem. Small and cozy, this Italian haven is perfect for an intimate date or cocktails with friends. The food is flavorful without being overly saturated with oil, butter, or garlic. We’re fans of the Caprese Salad and the Veal Scallopini. Throw in a bottle of Chianti and it could be a while before you finally say "ciao."
