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

Visited this restaurant very early on a bank holiday monday evening when attending a gig nearby, as it was only 6pm it was empty so I can't comment on ambience but I can say that we had a very friendly welcome. Food was extremely good value - two course meal for £11.95 including a glass of wine or beer. Generous... More

We were out and about in central Oxford on Saturday looking for somewhere to eat but were struggling to find somewhere that could seat six of us (plus a tiny baby). On the suggestion of friends we tried out Verde and were extremely impressed. The food was fresh and delicious. The children's pizzas were huge and actually one between two... More

My family and I have been going to Verde pizzeria for the last 6-8 months and loved it, the staff are so friendly and nothing is to much to ask. The atmosphere was always great, and food was amazing.

We found verde pizzeria when looking for somewhere on Oxford road for dinner. Fairly early on a saturday, we were seated immediately. The food arrived very quickly and was above expectation, the child's menu was basic but absolutely fine, our son had spaghetti bolognese and found the portion size more than enough. The garlic bread with cheese was delicious as... More
