Visited Verde without checking TripAdvisor first, which is unusual. Visiting family in Oxford we wanted something quick and not too expensive for a late lunch and we found Verde to fit the bill very well. Very pleasant italian food at reasonable prices and - despite the earlier review which I have... read more

I don't acutally know where to start. This place looks ok from the outside, but once you are in and order your food you will sonn realize that you have made a big mistake in wasting your time in coming here. This so called "italian Trattoria" is not even run by italians so I don't understand the point in the... More

Stumbled across this restaurant whilst looking for somewhere to eat. Lovely atmosphere with a warm welcome. The menu was like every other Italian - nothing to write home about. We both chose to have a pizza which were both nice. The bill only came to £20 which also included two drinks. I would recommend this restaurant for a bite to... More

It was almost the only italian restaurant we found on Cowley Road since I wanted a good pizza. We arrived at precised 10pm, the time they're supposed to close, but with just a little of insistance, we've been gently accepted and could have a very good dinner. The card of pizzas is long enough to find the right combination you... More

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.

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.

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.
