“Great experience, good food & service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013 via mobile

We ate in Verdonis recently. The atmosphere is very fun, we liked the menu choices. Mom had an unusual pizza I had a salad. Excellent presentation, service was even more efficient than we needed, but it was fairly early afternoon so somewhat expected. We wanted to relax a bit after driving, this place was perfect.

“Great food, but terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited Verdonis based on positive reviews on TripAdvisor. The food was delicious, but the service left much to be desired. Our server was friendly, but didn't seem to have a clue about how to serve us and meet our needs. We were there on a Monday evening and there were only two other parties there during prime dinner hour. At one point, our server knocked over my Coke, which saturated our cheese garlic bread appetizer. She apologized and set my glass upright, and then hurried off. I assumed she was fetching something to clean up the mess. The next thing I know, she's delivering food to another table. We ended up cleaning up the mess at our table and then had to flag her down to take the wet napkins and soggy garlic bread away. To top it all off, when we received the bill, the ruined garlic bread was still on there. My husband had to ask for her to remove it based on the chain of events that ruined the bread. The owners seemed to be eating their own dinner at the bar and oblivious to the chaos in the dining room. We won't be back.

“Shades of Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013 via mobile

The delicious food and generous servings at Verdoni's are reminiscent of authentic Italian cooking. The menu offers many choices including pasta dishes and wood grilled pizza and sandwiches. The salads are crisp and fresh with a generous side of thinly sliced bread with olive oil and freshly grated cheese for dipping. Sit in the bar or on the bar patio and enjoy appetizer and drink specials at happy hour. Great service too, will return soon.

“What a Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I had seen Verdonis on my drives to and from Muskegon and went for pizza last night. WOW!!! We walked in at about 6:30pm on a Friday night, sat right down outside where there is plenty of seating. It took a while for someone to come by but when they did, we were served our drinks quickly, ordered out pizza after about 10 minutes and before we finished out first drinks, wer served outstanding pizza. Had Fred's Favorite. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, beautiful surroundings and very good food. Plan on going back soon.

“Great food and service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Nine of us had dinner while on a family vacation and everyone raved about how great the food was. The service was outstanding as well. The only complaint was how hot it was in the building and especially the bathroom. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area who wants great Italian food.
