Private Parties

Let Verace: True Italian take you to Tuscany in the heart of Islip. Verace: True Italian is an intimate space that can satisfy many of your private event needs. The rustic Italian cuisine that comes from our gorgeous Ferrari Red open kitchen or the wines that pour from our innovative and environmentally friendly tap system can make any party one that your guests will not soon forget.

The Upstairs Room

Our second floor, hosting parties of up to 35, provides a private space with the availability of a presentation television discretely hanging from the west wall. On our second floor, you will feel the energy of the restaurant while still enjoying your own private space.

The Grotto at Verace

Our outdoor space, the Grotto at Verace can be reserved for your party when the weather is in our favor. Celebrate with our outdoor bar and fireplace and under the stars in our fully enclosed Grotto. There is no better place to have a summer event than the Grotto at Verace: True Italian.

Your Party Is Waiting

Cocktail receptions, parties, birthdays, showers, intimate weddings, rehearsal dinners,
special events, book signings, fashion shows, sweet 16s


Verace has long been recognized for our cuisine and we have earned our reputation as Long Island’s premier destination for authentic Italian cooking. Enjoy local seafood, steaks, house made pasta, hand tossed pizzas and charcuterie from our 110 year old Berkel slicer. We have both Lunch and Dinner menus to offer a diverse culinary experience for each of your guests.

Verace has four options to suit parties of any size and shape. From the intimate space upstairs, to the more expansive Main Dining Room to our outdoor Grotto, or take the entire space for a larger event; Verace is an inviting setting for your event.

Verace’s cozy bar houses a robust wine program and some innovative cocktails. We can tailor a cocktail list for your event or we can cater to your guests’ needs with something from our world class beverage and wine lists.
