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.

We ate on a Saturday evening, was quite quiet considering. We were in a bit of a hurry so made the waitress aware who ensured our food was quick. Our starters were delicious and the mains were great too, good portion sizes. Friendly service and good service. Looking forward to going back soon!

Eating our these days normally ends in disappointment, well not on this occasion. We only ended up here by pure chance and it certainly wont be our last visit. The staff were excellent and very friendly and the food was great.

Went for a dinner on a Thursday night. We got our table immediately, and even at the door, the staff was extremely friendly. The starters came fast, and they were delicious! The mains didn't take long either, I had the risotto, and my mother had a pizza, and we absolutely loved it! Customer service was beyond amazing, everyone was extremely... More

I'm the only person in my family that likes pasta, so when I get a craving for it, I head here. My husband is always happy to come with me because they do so many other delicious things. He says that their steak is the best he's ever tasted! The staff are extremely friendly and the prices are very reasonable.... More
