Good Place for After Work Drinks or a Date
By afaulhaber on 2/4/2010
I enjoyed this place. It fits a nice niche, very pretty, warm decor, many wines available by the glass (they all had great descriptions which made me want to try them all), along with a simple sandwich menu. The food and wine weren't phenominal, but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It did get noisy by about 7pm when the place was completely full (with mostly women). We asked to try several of the wines before ordering and were graciously accomodated.
Cute place, bad service

My friends and I had dinner at Veloce on 12/20/07. It was quite cramped and very busy, but that's understandable given the location. The food/wine was adequate. Nothing special, but certainly not bad. The bar staff was very rude to us in the end though over our credit card payments, insisting we split the check over fewer cards. I understand bars pay fees to credit card companies, but ultimately if they don't want to, they shouldn't advertise they accept cards and in any case, they ought to be nicer to their customers. I won't be going back.
