You might have to look hard to find this cafe but the effort will be worth it. Tucked away in a cellar it is more like a small jazz club in appearance and some may not like the noisy acoustics, but the food and service will push all that aside.

This is a small underground restaurant that has great food in the heart of Brisbane. Plenty of vegetarian options. It has a great casual vibe. Plenty of drink options as well, especially if you like cider. Do yourself a favour and go!

Only one or two waiter/waitress, even bad service when the restaurant is not busy. Not helpful at helping customer with seat arrangement, keeps saying all the other tables have been booked, seats are arranged by the restaurant and can't be changed.

This place is a must for italian food lovers. Great service, friendly staff and a good break between entree & main. Highly recommended.

Looking for an Italian meal for dinner, I decided to find Verve Cafe which I had heard about from friends. Verve is an underground restaurant and bar, and you can easily walk past its entrance on Edward St. But its 'blink once and you'll miss it' entrance is well worth finding for the menu on offer, including it's vast array...

We were taken here by a friend of ours who has been before and highly recommended it. To be fair we had walked past it loads of times and never thought to go in, and boy have we missed out. The menu leans towards Italian with pasta, pizza and various mains. We ordered various pasta dishes (gnocchi and spicy chorizo... More

My partner and me eat here on a semi-regular basis and it is always the same; i.e. consistently good. You all know how good the food is here and the service isn't bad either.

Large Delicious Pizza, Risotta and Pasta dishes including seafood in a basement restaurant in the city centre. The bonus of this cafe is their extensive range of ciders, listed on the beverage menu from sweet to very dry. If you are cider drinker you will love it. Attentive service too. Some really nice alcove tables for intiminate dinners for two.... More

This is a restaurant I have returned to countless times. The food is always exceptional and I would encourage all to try the risotto.
