Great food and love that it's BYOB. Nice atmosphere. Perfect for couples dinner or family gathering. Reservations a must.

Stopped by on a Sunday night and we had no trouble choosing our table. I believe this place is packed on a Saturday night. Started with some bruschetta for the table, wine opened promptly- they had a "specials" menu which had about 3-4 appetizers and 4-5 entrees all considerably higher than regular menu which is to be expected. The Verde... More

My husband and I had a fabulous meal. The appetizer, beets with goat cheese was very tasty. Our dinners were both good too. My reason I didn't give a 5 star rating is because the prices were a little high! For example the coffee was $3.00 and the cappuccino was $5.00! Wow and it wasn't that good! All and all... More

I've only been here once but it was fantastic. Food, service and ambiance were all top notch. The very important coffee at the end of the meal was done in true Italian fashion.

Didn't expect too much. This is a former diner. Small place and does not look exceptional from the outside. We were surprised. Really excellent food from bread to appetizers to main course and desert. First rate and very attentive service. No complaints. One thought: it is a small place with tables somewhat tight. It does not have great ambiance--not the... More

Just visited Verde Ristorante with family. The food was excellent and plenty - including the appetizers and entrees. We had the calamari's, meatballs and eggplant rolletini for appetizers and then the Sea Bass, Verde Chicken and Cavatelli with Broccoli as entrees - everything was delicious and seasoned just perfect. The staff including the waiters and everyone were very good and... More

I called and asked for a reservation at 7:00 on Saturday. The owner suggested 7:30, and I said I preferred 7:00. We got there at 7:00, and it was clear that every table was occupied. We were seated at 7:25, and stood in the doorway for almost half an hour. Menus arrived, our wine was poured (it's BYOB). No offer... More

What a charming place to meet for lunch. The decor is simple and nice; service attentive; wonderful daily specials; great value; but more importantly the food was wonderful. We all had the Basa fish special and loved it. All entrees come with a choice of appetizer, too.

Verde is a small gem of a place with a strong customer following. The fish dishes are excellent and the service always first-rate. Tables are quite close to one another as it is in a fairly small space, but the environment overall is quite pleasant.

Our family actually pulled off a surprise 90th birthday luncheon for my mother recently. She was thrilled and surprised and kept asking how we managed to keep it secret. The service was excellent, anything that was requested was immediately provided. The salad was crisp and fresh with a delicious dressing. People who had tilapia raved about it, my cavatelli and...
