Really Good Food

This is a great small restaurant. Enjoyed spare ribs and steak. Very good except steak and lovely sauce were not warm enough - on a cold plate. Mentioned this and came back piping hot with new veg - i.e. Very good service. House wine could be improved.

Reservations are a necessity at the small but high standard, family run restaurant. The food is excellent value for money and of exceptional quality. Sometimes a wait is necessary as everything is cooked to order but, it is definitely well worth the wait.

My wife and I moved to Meanwood in June 2008 which If I remember rightly was about 1 month prior to Via Verde opening. In the last 6 years we have been on countless occasions and both Geoff and Bridget have always welcomed us with open arms and really made us feel like part their family. Our latest visit was...

Went to this restaurant last year and enjoyed the food so came back again with a party of friends from the squash club. They indeed enjoyed their night out here also with lovely staff and all the food freshly cooked. We all agreed that we will be paying another visit. I had a sea bass fish cake started which was...

A small restaurant only 6 or 7 tables and a rather basic menu. The usual Pasta/Pizza choices plus specials on the board which were unsurprising. The main surprises were the great value prices and the excellent quality served. I ordered a starter of Spare Ribs. Very good but nothing special. My main was fillet medallions in a peppercorn sauce. I... More

I suppose it is relatively easy for a restaurant to provide an excellent meal on one occasion, but to keep on doing so is much harder. When we last ate here we were massively impressed, and having been back for a family celebration we are even more impressed. This is a small, unassuming restaurant where the meals are so good,...

I love going to the family run restaurant - I've been going there for years. The food portion sizes are amazing and is freshly made. My favourite starter is mushroom crustini and all the desserts are my favourites - I usually have two desserts as there are gorgeous and well presented. All my netball friends loved their meals and have... More

Another visit to this restaurant proved to be just as good as ever. Bridget and Geoff are perfect hosts; the food and wine are excellent and the atmosphere cannot be faulted. Reservations are an absolute necessity.
