The term “pizza” first appeared in Latin text dating from 997 AD. A dish of the poor people sold in the streets of Medieval Naples, pizza was not considered a kitchen recipe until the 18th century. Legend has it that King Ferdinand of Naples and the Two Sicilies disguised himself as a commoner and visited a poor neighbourhood in Naples “to sink his teeth into a food that the Queen had banned from the royal court”.
What makes authentic Neapolitan pizza so special?
Authentic Neapolitan Pizza is a thing of beauty designed to delight with every bite. Like an insatiable desire to rip it to pieces in a fit of passion, you won’t stop until you’ve devoured it.
Its ingredients consist of a palette of delirious flavours. The tart-like tinge of the San Marzano tomatoes adds a sweet quality to the soft, blistered, flame-licked bed of dough. It is then topped with any of your chosen delights to create a work of art for your consumption.
We are proud to serve the best pizza in Oakville.
Our custom-built brick wood-burning oven ensures each pizza emerges irresistibly delicious, while our homemade pasta, meticulously prepared by one of our owners and skilled twenty-year-experienced chef, is sure to captivate your taste buds.
However, experiencing our culinary excellence firsthand is the best testimony. We warmly invite you to join us for lunch or dinner at Verace Italian Restaurant and discover the irresistible flavours that keep utensils busy until every last bite is savoured.
Welcome to Verace Italian Restaurant, where every visit feels like a warm embrace from Italy itself. Tomo Kovacek and Aleksandra Popovic, the passionate owners, have poured their hearts into creating an authentic Italian dining experience that captures the essence of Italian hospitality and cuisine.
Tomo, also the owner of Pizza E Pazzi on St. Clair Ave. in Toronto, recognized the demand for genuine Italian fare in Oakville, drawing inspiration from Aleksandra's hometown. Aleksandra, a Real Estate Broker in Oakville and surrounding areas, brought her expertise and love for her community to Verace's vision. Together, they envisioned a dining destination that embodies true Italian culture, and Verace was born.
Since opening its doors on August 27, 2021, Verace has been a beacon of Italian authenticity, offering a delightful blend of tradition and innovation. From the moment you step inside, you're greeted with the aromas of freshly baked Neapolitan pizza from our wood-burning oven - a centerpiece of our kitchen, handcrafted in Italy by the renowned Acunto family.
Our commitment to authenticity extends beyond our oven; it permeates every aspect of our menu. Tomo's culinary training near the Italian border and his dedication to using traditional Italian ingredients ensure that each dish tells a story of Italian heritage. From the tantalizing seafood specials to the comforting classics like pasta al a vongole and rigatoni caprese, every bite reflects the rich tapestry of Italian cuisine.
At Verace, we believe that dining is more than just a meal; it's an experience to be shared with loved ones. Whether you're enjoying a leisurely dinner or celebrating a special occasion in our newly renovated events space, we strive to create a welcoming atmosphere where everyone feels like family.
Join us at Verace Italian Restaurant, where the spirit of Italy awaits, and every moment is a celebration of la dolce vita.
