Loved the atmosphere, food was fabulous and service great. Because it's in a basement which means going down several stairs, it's not suitable for the elderly or infirm.

Arranged to meet friends here for dinner on their recommendation. When we arrived my husband commented it was like a canteen inside - don't be put off by this, as the food is definitely better than the decor! Early on it was really really busy, but clears out just after 9.30pm but I am told this is typical for Brisbane!... More

Went here for a late dinner after a wedding that was a late lunch. Fairly straight forward food, which was reasonably priced. Staff friendly. Drinks reasonable. Overall, OK experience, but wouldn't rush straight back.

Loved the atmosphere, food and the cost. Staff were very hospitable and service was great. The only issue that needs to be looked at is the lack of toilet facilities. Only 1 toilet with the cafe seating around 90 people, not good.

While visiting Brisbane we chose Verve due to Tripadvisor reviews. Yes it can be noisy but that adds to the ambiance. Most important is the food which is authentic Italian. Pricing is average but the sizings aren't - we were pleasantly surprised by the generous servings of prawns and pasta. Service was fast and efficient. Lots of different ciders to... More

The wife and I visited yesterday for lunch and we were very pleasantly surprised. The dining area was a little dark but once your eyes adjusted everything was fine. The food was excellent....fantastic even. The wife claims it was the best meal she had eaten during our seven months in Brisbane and it's hard to disagree with her (ever). Oh,... More

As a visitor to the city we decided to eat early and relax in our hotel room. Worked well the Verve appears very popular with the waitress telling us it becomes noisy. That was just becoming that way at 6.30 as the crowd was arriving. The food though was very good both the pasta and risotto we had were great.... More

Verve has good moderately priced Italian food but it is the large Australian cider menu and relaxed atmosphere that make it such a nice dining experience.
