“A wonderful dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2011

Last week I took a few VIP’s to Verdi’s and had an incredible evening. When we arrived our table was waiting for us and we were escorted to our table on time. Our server did a wonderful job and we loved the food. Overall this was a very nice evening and everyone in our group raved about their meal. I can not wait to go back :)

“Best restaurant we went to in Marco Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2011

Great food, great service!
Restaurant is small and a bit crowded but the staff is excellent, very attentive. The food was wonderful! We have eaten at many fine dining establishments and while the decor and set up may not be up to the same level as these other places, the food and service certainly was. Truly enjoyable, I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area and would definitely go there again.

What a wonderful compliment as there are many fabulous restaurants on Marco and you considered us the best one that you went to. First and foremost thank you for that!!! We are a very small restaurant so room for any "extra decor" would just crowd it more...so we do try to keep it classy, modern & simple and then shine with the food and service as you truly noticed. Thank you again as every posting means so much to us and we truly appreciate you taking the time to write and share your experiences with others. All our best always with warm regards, Verdismanagement2011

“Love this place, again and again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2011

We've been seasonal visitors to Marco Island since 1985. We've been to most of the restaurants on the island. Verdi's is simply an amazing experience every single time. On our last visit, we were with a party of six including two young children. From the hosts' warm welcome to the waiter's suggestions to the food itself, everything exceeded our expectations. And that's not easy to do -- you walk into Verdi's with very high expectations. Going to Verdi's is one of the highlights of visiting Marco Island. And when you consider all that Marco has to offer -- powder-white sandy beaches, palm-tree lined streets, constant sunshine, and gorgeous sunsets -- that's pretty high praise.

“UNFORTUNATELY NOT A GOOD EXPERIENCE LIKE OTHER DINERS HAD”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2011

I really wanted to like Verdis. Unfortunately I feel we hit it on an off night. (Sunday)

We were greeted by Manny. I think Robin had the night off .

We had a great shrimp eggroll appetizer and wine. After that it went downhill fast.

I think our waiter disppeared for atleast a half an hour. I'm not sure where to since the place is small. We waited over one hour for our entrees after we ordered them. Finally we got Mannys attention and he checked into our order. It arrived soon after.
A table of "regulars" received their food before us also which was ordered way after ours.

We were told the kitchen was backed up (we arrived at (6:15)

Once received steak,veal chop good . Mashed potatoes bad aspargus cold.

German chocolate cake for dessert was great!!!!

We were comped our wine which did help. However because our experience was so so I cannot recommend. Verdis is small with tables close togeher . The outside area is not good. Maybe if our meal had been better I would have overlooked this

Hello and we are truly grateful for you taking the time to post your experience with us. As we do strive to be "Perfect"...unfortunately we cannot always do so. Incidents do happen to interrupt our smooth flow of service as our timing can get knocked off. Sometimes meals are re-cooked prior to you receiving them as they may have been "over cooked" and we would never serve it to a guest if it was wrong. We know that Manny did everything he could to execute your dinners immediately as he was made aware of the situation...and he remembers that night in question. We know complimentary wine does not make up for the delay in service, but it was an acknowledgement of our mistake and an apology to help make up for our errors. Please have the kindness to contact us and give Verdi's another chance while you are in Marco as we would love to have the opportunity to show you how wonderful our little bistro truly is. Thank you so much and we appreciate you caring enough to let us know that we were not 100 percent that evening. All our best! Verdi's Management2011

“Service,food,atmosphere....A+ A+ A+”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2011

I had emailed Robin before where were coming to MI. She gave me a few times but I was never able to get back to her. We landed on Sunday morning spent the day at the beach and decided to take a chance to see if we could get in....we are glad we did, from the moment you walk in, greeted by Manny, felt like we came her for 20 years. I had the Walu and the wife had the meat loaf...both were tremendous. We had hoped to return during the week, I was at the gym and saw a MI number appear on my cell, I answered thinking it might be the wife....It was ROBIN......this doesn't happen just anywhere....she wanted to make our reservation. I was very impressed and happy to confirm a time....where once again I had the Walu and the wife had the phyllo chicken both very very good. Only negative,we had the calamari...frozen and not very good but we found this to be another restaurant we ate at as well. all in all. Great experience, great food, service and atmosphere.....can't wait to come back.

As you know we are honored that many of our diners the time to post about all their experiences with us. But we must admit, each and every heading means so very much to us....and not one the same. We are so proud of our little bistro and our entire staff as we have been serving Marco Island 13 years...Thank you for mentioning Robyn and Manny as well as they are "truly your welcoming committee" and it is smooth sailing from there. The friendliness you felt as if you had been coming for 20 years is a comment we have heard before and it is so natural as when you walk thru Verdi's door it is like entering a friend's home as our customers over the years have become our friends as well. So in your case, we are happy to have you as our new friend!! All our best and come visit your friends at Verdi's again soon. Verdismanagement2011
