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

Had a family meal recently. Although it was a sunday evening there were quite a few other customers. Food was excellent and good value as were drinks. Will certainly return.

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

The reason why I go back to Verde now and then is because it's a comfort easy-going place. The food is quite okay, it's never crazy busy and the staff is very friendly. Last time my parents were in town I did not book a table anywhere as it was a Thursday but ended up walking all around Oxford as... More

We went on a Saturday night while the kids were at a gig at the O2 Academy. It was a but quiet, but there are so many restaurants offering so many styles of food in the area that that is perhaps no surprise. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the food was brilliant. I chose the Risotto Primavera,... More

My partner and I ate here last night. Nothing wrong with the food although the pizza was stodgy and I've had better meat sauce in a lasagne from a can. Service was inattentive with both of us having empty glasses throughout the main course. We won't be returning soon as Cowley Road has so much better. Go to Mario's or... More

I had enjoyed the previous restaurant in this site, Carne, but had never tried its successor, partly out of loyalty to the former Fratellis pizzeria (which is much missed), whose owners felt that Verde had copied their formula. It should have been a clue that there were plenty of empty tables on a Friday night. The menu didn't particularly excited... More
