La Veranda (Pompano Beach)
***** La Veranda, 2121 East Atlantic Boulevard, Pompano Beach, Florida 33433 (954) 943-7390.
La Veranda is a white-table-cloth Southern Italian joint that isn’t full of itself. I am not sure how long La Veranda has been in business, but I am going to guess 20+ years. Just so you know, indoor/out door patio seating- full liquor bar area.
La Veranda’s food is delicious…Over the years I have eaten in this joint something like 10 times…lobster fra diavlo worth killing over. The veal parmigiana, chicken marsala and the shrimp scampi ain’t bad either. Very good wait-staff. No more expensive than your favorite neighborhood red sauce joint.
Like I said, this is a white-table-cloth joint…but your tee shirt/shorts/flip flop “outfit” works!
La Veranda is open Tuesday-Sunday for dinner. It has an absolutely enormous following, so be smart and make a reservation.
