Lunch prices were reasonable; very generous serves; our delicious meals came quickly and the service was friendly and caring. I am coeliac so was quite excited to have so many gluten free options to choose from. The only downside was that it became very noisy as more people came in. But that will not stop us from going back and... More

Funky and inviting setting underground. Promised a lot from the reviews but I was disappointed. Serves me right for ordering risotto anyway else but in Italy, not great. My husbands Pizza was nice and he enjoyed it, salad was very good.

My wife and I went for dinner last Friday and the food was great. We started with the Garlic pan as a shared entree. This was really good with great flavour and the garlic, cheese and basil was perfectly balanced. We had the spicy prawn fettuccini and the goats cheese and chicken gnocchi. Both were excellent. This place is also... More

Verve is an Italian restaurant situated in a basement in Edward Street. The setting and decor is minimalist (ok- cheap) As it's in a basement it's noisy. However, the food is good Italian- large serves for a reasonable price. I recommend the Calamari. The service can be a bit erratic depending on the numbers in the restaurant.

food is nice and not too expensive, the restaurant is under ground and very very stuffy, toilets are outside, one on one level and then the other two you need to go all the way to the outside stairs, a bit scary

Verve is a cool downstairs restaurant in Edward St with great food, great atmosphere and very reasonable prices. You can pop in for a quick meal or equally with a large group. It's noisy and busy and full of laughter. From my perspective, it offers better quality food at a low price for a traveller doing it cheap. The two... More

Then we had to wait for our mains and everyones came out and I was still waiting. We had come to eat together not... More

Been here only once, but had a good experience. Risotto was amazing, worth the price. Only small downfall, we went there in summer and because the restaurant is underground, the circulation was a bit bad, and it felt bit hot and stuffy. Great service, friendly staff and good location. Food was good.

After trying to find a good Italian we walked past this restaurant and the beautiful smell made us book a restaurant the next night. Beautiful food, service & restaurant. Thank you for a great experience!
