“The best appetiser I've ever had”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've now eaten in all the top restaurants in Marco and have had some indifferent experiences.
The experience and food was as good as any on the Island and thoroughly recommend Verdi's.
I had the mushroom crostini as an appetiser and am still thinking about it a month on. It is probably the most memorable dish I've had, it was amazing.
100% recommended.

“A Remarkable Restaurant”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

This is a REMARKABLE restaurant located in an unremarkable strip mall. I would not have given this bistro a second thought if I had merely driven by; but based on Tripadvisor reviews we decided to give it a go. What a marvelous culinary experience! The restaurant’s ambiance is quaint and quiet: small rooms filled with white clothed tables and soft lighting. I ordered the New Zealand Rack of Lamb and my husband ordered the 8oz. Filet. Both were cooked perfectly to order. The port sauce on the lamb was sublime. We shared bananas foster for dessert, which was also excellent. Service was attentive (but not too attentive) and the chef took the time to come out and make sure that we were happy. Don't let the sleepy strip mall location dissuade you from experiencing this Marco Island gem!

“Always a winner!”
Reviewed January 20, 2013 via mobile

We have been going to Verdis for years! The food is always superb. I am addicted to the nut crusted tilapia with brown butter rum sauce over perfectly prepared garlic mashed potatoes. My father had the new short rib dish on the menu....divine. Perfectly done so it melted in your mouth. My mother had the hawaiian fish entree. Very interesting preparation but obviously delicious. Not a scrap left. We didnt have room for dessert this trip. The wait staff is wonderful and Robyn is always so helpful...she remembers you from year to year. A delightful, special evening. Thank you!

“Noise Level”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Our dinner at Verdi's was fine and thought the visit to our table by the chef was a nice touch. Our concern, however, was the almost unbearable noise level. The restaurant is quite small and the dining room is open in the shape of a square. Most of the tables were occupied and the conversation level escalated to the point that even the servers had to raise their voices to a near scream. We were with new friends and were looking forward to getting to know each other over a nice meal. Unfortunately, our experience was more stressful than relaxing. This restaurant seems to care and wants to do a good job but the layout and size of their dining room is challenging. I could only recommend visiting this restaurant very early or late in the evening or during the slower season.

Thank you so much for joining us and thank you for sharing your experience with us on TripAdvisor. We are a very small restaurant and when the restaurant is full of larger groups it tends to get noisy from all the conversations. We so wish you would have shared your concerns with us that evening as we could have moved you into our smaller wine room where it is quieter or one of our outside patio tables where weather permitting is a lovely quiet place to dine. We do so hope you would choose to join us again and please mention to our Verdi's representative on the telephone that you would prefer a table in the wine room or an outside patio table.
Thank you so much again! All our best! Verdismanagement2013
