This little restaurant served a meal huge in flavor! What a wonderful surprise! We just picked out this restaurant from what others said on tripadvisor and were not disappointed. It doesn't look like much when you pull up but the staff was so friendly and fun, most of all the food was outstanding. Wish hey were right around the corner... More

In Wilmington on business and dropped by this place with a coworker for some local Italian food based on the reviews. We were NOT disappointed! So many things on the menu looked tempting so I asked the owner to narrow down my choices. He recommended the Eggplant Parmigiana because "they just made it," and I asked for zucchini noodles instead... More

If your want fresh pizza pie, this is your stop. Silvio has been serving great pies and Italian meals for years. It's a family thing: brothers, sisters, kids, nieces, nephews, cousins. And they make customers feel like family too. Joe has classic dishes plus others that rotate through the seasons. Nothing crazy, just simple combinations that let the ingredients shine.... More

If you love authentic Italian flavors, Cafe Verdi is a must when you visit Wilmington. Located in the historic Trolley Square area, it is easy to find as you tour the Forty Acres and Highlands. The cozy atmosphere is wonderful for family or date nights and the proprietor and wait staff are friendly. The aroma of slow cooked Marinara with... More

This small cafe situated in the most popular area of Wilmington for "socializing" is a gem for those who merely want an abundance of excellent Italian food at a very reasonable price. To describe the place as modest is an understatement, but the clientele are mainly repeat visitors and know that the seating atmosphere and ambiance are irrelevant. You come,... More

We once lived in the Trolley Square area and enjoyed coming here to eat. We moved away over 10 years ago. When we decided to head to Wilmington for a play, we thought about stopping somewhere for dinner. The Café came to mind and we found the Café to be as we remembered. It's a small, cozy restaurant only about... More

Having lived near this restaurant for several years now, I am not sure why I always skipped it over. I think partly because it was in the strip mall and looked like it had limited seating. It is small and quaint (diner feel) but you are welcomed by the friendly staff as soon as you come in. Don't expect an... More

I moved from Wilmington several years ago, but whenever I go back for a visit I stop at Cafe Verdi. It was a favorite of mine when I lived there & still is when I make the trek back. Everything is so fresh & tasty. Service is attentive but not intrusive. The owners are great - they always make you... More

The restaurant has an impressive menu, and the dishes at our table were all prepared very well. The service was very friendly, but not overbearing. Two of our party had seafood dishes, liked them very much. One veal dish was excellent, with tender veal and a nice sauce. I don't know where they get their desserts, but we shared a... More
