We booked a table for 6 at 3.30 in Verdi Vent on Sunday 4th November 2012. Arrived and was very impressed by the level of hospitality shown towards us. Something that will always impress me. The restaurant was absolutely packed and every table was utilised. It is a very rustic place so watch your head on the low arches...lol.!!!
We were shown to a room to the right of the front room and there was only another 2 tables in there. It felt like we had our own private area. The starters arrived promptly and the wine flowed. Our order for the main course was taken. The starter can be described as a potato salad, ingratiated with a hint of garlic, rosemary and thyme served with lashings of bread. Absolutely delicious. Then came a huge earthenware tureen of homemade broth. I can honestly say that if all 6 of us had 4 plates of soup each, we would still have not got to the bottom of what seemed like the Grand Canyon!
After that, we were presented with a beautiful salad served with a separate creamy dressing. An absolute delight to the palette. After that, came the main course. It was a choice of Lamb Shank, Duck in Orange Sauce or Steak with a creamy sauce too. All the guests ordered something different so each of us got to taste all three choices. The vegetables consisted of mashed potato and broccoli. Everything was perfect. After the plates were cleared, sufficient time was given to allow the food to "sink down" before the dessert order was taken. It was crepes with a swirl of cream enveloped in a beautiful dessert sauce.
All in all, all of us had a fantastic meal at Verdi Vent. We will definitely return and wish the proprietors and the staff every success they truly deserve.
