This small cafe situated in the most popular area of Wilmington for "socializing" is a gem for those who merely want an abundance of excellent Italian food at a very reasonable price. To describe the place as modest is an understatement, but the clientele are mainly repeat visitors and know that the seating atmosphere and ambiance are irrelevant. You come,... More

We once lived in the Trolley Square area and enjoyed coming here to eat. We moved away over 10 years ago. When we decided to head to Wilmington for a play, we thought about stopping somewhere for dinner. The Café came to mind and we found the Café to be as we remembered. It's a small, cozy restaurant only about... More

Having lived near this restaurant for several years now, I am not sure why I always skipped it over. I think partly because it was in the strip mall and looked like it had limited seating. It is small and quaint (diner feel) but you are welcomed by the friendly staff as soon as you come in. Don't expect an... More

I moved from Wilmington several years ago, but whenever I go back for a visit I stop at Cafe Verdi. It was a favorite of mine when I lived there & still is when I make the trek back. Everything is so fresh & tasty. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The owners are great - they always make you... More

The restaurant has an impressive menu, and the dishes at our table were all prepared very well. The service was very friendly, but not overbearing. Two of our party had seafood dishes, liked them very much. One veal dish was excellent, with tender veal and a nice sauce. I don't know where they get their desserts, but we shared a... More

A quaint, homey place with a family feel. Lots of locals were stopping by on Christmas Eve Eve, making it clear that it's a local favorite. Great Italian food and friendly service.

Veal saltimboca was tender, spinach and cheese not overpowering and white wine sauce just right. The verdi salad with its mix of nuts and berries was a nice addition. I will be back next time i am in the area.

My homemade spinach ravioli was very good but the bread was not what I would expect at a good Italian restaurant and I wasn't a fan of the spices they put in the dipping oil. It is very small and the tables are almost on top of one another - I didn't feel comfortable carrying on a conversation because we... More

The food was very good. The wait staff was excellent. The prices were reasonable. Atmosphere was very nice. This is the kind of place where you feel comfortable as soon as you walk in. Pizza is really good.
