“Loved this place. Not fancy but great food and enthusiastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

There were 8 of us tonight. We all had apps, entrees and shared deserts and coffee. Food was very good and the price was pretty good. The waitress (a very sweet Romanian) was very accommodating with all our substitutions. Nothing fancy here and when we left around 10:30 we were definately the last people in the place. All in all a lovely dinner choice if you are looking for a good meal onMarco Island. The duck potsti kers, mushroom crostini, sea bass were all excellent. Cappuccino was low-fat, frothing and nicely hot.

“Unbelievably delicious!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013

When you are looking to go out for an evening of fine dining in Marco Island, there is really no reason to go anywhere else. The food is absolutely fantastic. From the salads to dessert, we had to stop short of licking our plates. They were even able to accomodate my friend with Celiac's and her gluten free diet. Usually, restaurants will serve her something plain and tasteless to be sure to not cross contaminate. Verdi's had not only a gluten free menu, but the food was thoughtful and gourmet, with sauces and flavors that left nothing missing. The chef visited our table to be sure everything was to our liking and James, our waiter, made us feel like royalty and an old friend at the same time. Great service and even better food! Wonderful all around.

“The best appetiser I've ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!
