Good food and atmosphere

We've eaten here a couple of times when visiting our daughter and have enjoyed both meals. I'm not an expert, but the food seems genuinely Italian, the service is cheerful and the atmosphere good. Reasonably priced too.

Nothing wrong with the place. Nice food, good service. Fairly bland stylistically and not massively memorable, but it's worth visiting if you're in the mood for Italian.

Have eaten in and had takeaway from Verde many, many times and the pizza is incredible. 'Verde Special' is a particular treat! The service when we have eaten in has always been excellent and the takeaway is always ready within 15 mins (even on Friday and Saturday night), hot and as good as eating in. I have eaten at Atomic... More

Went to Verde to relax and have a coffee with bunch of friends on Saturday evening. Got a table without prior reservation just before the establishment was filled with reservation guests. Staff was very friendly and kind. We took some coffee and desserts and enjoyed our stay. Highly recommended.

Consistent service and food. Pizzas are great or the linguine di mare is a winner. When in doubt head to Verde.

A group of 12 of us went for a post fireworks meal at Verde. We booked in advance and the staff were good at accommodating 2 extra people that turned up on the night with us. We had to ask for our drinks order to be taken-25 minutes after arriving. The toilets are a nightmare- both the ladies' toilets were... More

We had a birthday dinner there, and we were the only people in the restaurant because was totally empty. Bad sign when a restaurant is totally empty....The food was very poor, and not Italian at all. The base of the pizza was frozen like the rest of the ingredients, so was totally tasteless. For the same price, is better to... More

Stumbled across Verde at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon, was pleasantly surprised to find that it was open. The food was outstanding and the service excellent, I had a Rib Eye steak that was cooked to perfection and it was 'melt in the mouth' tender... Can't fault anything...

I'm eating out lots at the moment as we're doing up our kitchen. So recently I've been to the local Indian, Chinese, Thai, chop house, chip shop, burger joint, etc..... Decided on Italian this evening, didn't want a pizza, but some pasta and a real starter as I'm fed up with Domino's and Pizza Hut (Domino's are better though!) and... More

Had a meal last Sunday evening with my daughter and was disappointed. Garlic bread was very poor and tasteless and was returned.like eating cardboard! Pizza was OK however difficult to cut with the cultery provided. Next time in Oxford I will be giving this establishment a miss.
