“Just like home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Having moved from the Northeast 2 years ago to Florida, one of our constant searches is to find a "down home" Italian restaurant. Well we have done it! We were turned onto Verducci's by friends/neighbors in the hi rise condo we currently reside in. Verducci's sports an early bird special daily from 4-6 that includes a salad and selection of entrees for $10.00. We have been there several times and food is always excellent and consistent. Their meatballs are a must try. Their rapini and sausage appetizer is wonderful as is there bruschetta and a shrimp,calamari and octopus dish. We have gone with several groups of friends who have also been happy. Servers are great-especially Valentino. We are doing such a good job of spreading the word that we just hope we are able to get in! Especially with the season coming. Nothing fancy just downright good.

“5 Stars isn't enough.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014 via mobile

First time to St. Pete on girls weekend. Decided to go for pizza and happened upon Verduccis via Google search. WOW did we luck out. Our Server, Valentino, did a wonderful job of describing the appetizers and specials. We had a featured appetizer that was amazing and the pizza was BEYOND fabulous. Valentino's service was equally matched with his great looks and was kind enough to stop for a photos with us and was truly a highlight of our trip. We were eyeing everyone's plates and all of the pasta dishes look excellent as well. Big thanks to Verducci's for providing us our best meal in St. Pete!!

“Amazing food Great Prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

The food was amazing. I had the gnocchi which was by far the best I have ever eaten. The portion size is huge! Three people could have shared my entree! We also got the bruschetta which was delicious! The bread is delicious so make sure you ask for it if no one offers it! The services was wonderful. We went on a Wednesday evening and it was not busy at all. Parking is terrible though!! We had to drive around for a while to find a place on the street, I could not imagine what it would be like when the restaurant is busy! The bill for four of us came to around $50 which I thought was great.

“Truly great Italian cooking--and a nice wine list, too!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The Italian food here reminded me of the food I ate on a trip to Italy. The tomato sauce tastes like it was actually made from tomatoes, not a can. The bread is actually baked in the restaurant, not shipped in a plastic bag. In my party, we had a pizza, the lasagna, spaghetti with pomodoro sauce, and an assortment of olives and cheeses. All were excellent. Paired with a nice Chianti we can't buy at the local grocery store, an excellent meal. The cooking time was lengthy, to be certain, and they were out of a few menu items, but I think that's the trade-off you make when you want really fresh, good cooking. We sat outside, which I would recommend, as the inside is a bit crowded with big tables of 8 and 10 people, and the acoustics are noisy. Outside, they have cooling units, a beautiful red fabric roof with white lights, and thick potted plants to separate the tables from the road. I would definitely recommend this restaurant--very nice wine list, very reasonably priced, to go with very freshly-made food. Bravo!
