“Never again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Way too overpriced. I'm not paying that much for a coffee. Not enough staff and the queue was massive. Wouldn't go there again.

“Pseudo Italian”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Expensive, bland food, over cooked pasta, lacking in flavour and certainly not what could be described as Italian , despite their name and Italian staff. The coffee and ice cream though are ok, but the food is poor.

“Fine italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Great fresh italian food in warm light space with newspapers to browse at your leisure. Panoramic views across the bay and a short walk from Mumbles headland.

“Lovely but always packed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Best thing about verdi's is the view! It is lovely sitting outside in the summer, especially if it is sunny as the view of swansea is stunning. I like verdi's alot and have visit here frequently. Favourite things to order are hot chocolate, toast, pizza, garlic bread and ice cream. The quality of food and ice cream is brilliant! They are served quickly and you aren't left waiting long. This is a very large restaurant and you have to place your order yourself. On busy days you often have to queue at the till to place your order. It can also be difficult to get a table at busy times. But surely this just shows how popular this place is! I don't think you can reserve tables and the tables are not very large, unless you are able to put a few together you would not be able to have a very large party here. The ice cream is gorgeous but i do feel sometimes it is a little overpriced, around £4/5 for two scoops of icecream, some sauce and cream is a tad bit expensive for me! However these are the already designed ice creams and you can choose two individual scoops yourself which probably works out cheaper, however you will not get toppings or sauce unless you pay more. The toilets are big and clean. The service is lovely although as it is busy you aren't asked how your meal is and if they can get anything for you. For some people this is fine, and in this environment I do not mind, but other occasions it is nice to be able to speak to the staff. However as it is a cafe rather than a restaurant this should be expected.

“Tourist Trap”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

In the summer months you will be hard pushed to get a table especially if its outside on a sunny day. Expensive as its a tourist tap on the Mumbles front and is always busy with tourists. Somewhere nice to sit and have a coffee and people watch!
