I work a few blocks over from this little Italian place and always forget it's there. A co-worker suggested we go and once again I was not disappointed. I am allergic to eggs, diary and wheat so I usually avoid Italian food, but they have SO many options. This visit I got the gluten free pasta with vegi's, chicken and... More

Our server, Ryan R, was friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. We had the scallops for an appetizer, and the Mediterranean pasta and Dungeness crab pasta for dinner. The Limoncello Flute was light and refreshing.

I would highly encourage a visit here if you're in the mood for non-so-fancy-but-great Italian food. Very friendly staff. I won't say it's the most romantic place, a little loud, but it's great for families. All in all a very good experience.

First visit in the Totem Lake area...craving Italian...this place mostly delivered. Husband (Italian) raved about the minestrone. We split the stuffed pork tenderloin with sweet potato gnocchi..very rich and would never have finished a whole order!! Excellent and varied wine list.. chose a very good Brunello. Down side, out of biscotti on a Tuesday night. Would return.

My favorite Italian restaurant. Been there many, many times plus takeout for lunch and dinner. chicken scampi is my favorite and a serving is enough for dinner and lunch. I even dream about it from time to time.

The food quality here was decent, I would come back, but for an Italian place that is independent, there was nothing very exciting going on. Also, my friend and I wanted to get some Limoncello after dinner but it turns out that they only serve a limoncello cream desert. That was annoying.

Some previous co workers and I meet twice a year at Cafe Veloce to get caught up on each other's lives and families. We have never had a bad meal here. The pizza and pasta are both excellent. The service is good and the servers always know the right wine to pair with each dish. They have a very extensive... More

We love the fresh, homemade food served at Cafe Veloce. Each dish has its own unique flavor. The servers are always so polite and attentive. We will return to this favorite restaurant of ours!
