Great little place. Fantastic service and friendly too. We got some of the mini buns when we sat down and I could've made a meal of them on their own. We got the artichoke pasta salad and then I got the Petaluma pizza while my partner got the calzone. Both were to die for. Great dough and fresh ingredients. I... More

We had a great pizza but it wasn't as good cold the next day as I would have hoped. They goofed on our salad order but gave us more and didn't charge for it. That was very cool!

La Vera was recommended by our AirBnB hosts, but as we approached - it was the aroma that drew us in. Nestled on Santa Rosa's main downtown street, tucked behind it's small patio façade, is a family style Italian restaurant that serves the best pizzas we had on our entire Californian trip. We had a large appetite for pizza and... More

Have eaten at La Vera since 2001. Still the best pizza I've ever had in Santa Rosa. Great sauce (which is pretty much how I judge pizza), healthy amount of toppings, and good crust. Servers are friendly and efficient. If you want great pizza, you can beat La Vera!!!

Great pizza and pasta - especially their pesto dishes. I used to work close to downtown Santa Rosa and have been eating at La Vera, both lunch and dinner, for more than 25 years. They have maintained a high level of quality and creativity in their food, and its a welcoming spot to eat in.

Really good family friendly food in Santa Rosa. If you are looking for somewhere alone fourth street to have dinner with the family this is a good choice. Recommend the garlic knot bread. Delicious.

We had Chicken Parmesan (just ok) and Gnocchi with pesto sauce. The pesto was Very good but the gnocchi, though a generous size portion, was a little tough. Service was friendly and efficient.

We love the pesto pizza served at La Vera. Now living in Petaluma, we make a point of visiting a couple times of year. Some things never change and we appreciate the traditional and homey atmosphere of La Vera. Centrally located in downtown Santa Rosa, on warm evenings, there are options for dining outdoors.

Great appetizers and awesome pizza! Wait staff was wonderful and the whole experience was awesome. The crust was not thin and it was not thick. Right on the middle. The bread served with cheese was a surprise but a wonderful addition

Located in downtown Santa Rosa on 4th St is a sweet little Italian restaurant. They have brighten up the front with a cherry yellow overhang and there is an outside sidewalk eating area for warmer weather. They serve very traditional Italian cuisine (at least for California). The food tends to be a little heavy (lots of cream based sauces &... More
