“Nice ambiance & staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

We visited here on our last night on Marco Island & we were immediately seated for our reservation time. The atmosphere was very nice & our server was attentive. I only ordered appetizers & a cappuccino because I wasn't that hungry. The duck wontons & mushroom crostini was yummy. My husband ordered the short rib & thought it was just OK. It came on mashed potatoes. My husband said it was more of a pot roast than a short rib so he was disappointed with that. All in all a good visit.

“Outstanding Fine Dining”

Duck wontons were amazing. Crisp on the outside and succulent and flavorful on inside. Rack of lamb was cooked perfectly. German chocolate dessert was a winner! Service was perfect.

“Delectable and delightful!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

My husband and I recently spent a weekend in Marco Island, a couple of hours drive from where we live in South Florida. One of our friends who has a condo there and goes quite often highly recommended that we have dinner one night at Verdi's An American Bistro - we are so happy that he told us about this place. He advised us to make a reservation, even though it is summer time and not the peak season, and it is a good thing we did. The restaurant was full ... which by itself is a testament to the quality of the food and the service. We requested and were lucky enough to get a cosy booth in the smaller of the two rooms. The restaurant has an elegant (for Marco Island) but warm and welcoming atmosphere at the same time. All of the staff we interacted with were highly professional and friendly and the service was excellent im spite of the restaurant being so full.

We started off with the mushroom crustini appetizer (which our friend had told us we "had to have") and it was absolutely divine - light and tasty and not too rich or heavy. My husband chose the filet for his main course, which was cooked to perfection; I had the Chilean sea bass, which just melted in my mouth. Delectable and delightful ...no other way to put it!! For desert we shared the German chocolate cake which was the perfect finishing touch to a beautiful evening with fabulous food and outstanding service. It was great to be able to enjoy first class dining in Marco Island. We will be back next time we are in Marco!!

“Excellent!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We could not have been more delighted with our meal that we returned the following weekend! The appetizer, mushroom crostini was delicious, and the lobster man n cheese was short of divine!! My kids both had pasta Alfredo and my husband had the rack of lamb, twice!! I enjoyed the filet which was amazing! The wine was also outstanding!! Love it, will come back before summer is over!!

“Delicious shrimp Mac and cheese”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013 via mobile

Accommodated us on a Sat with no reservation. Service was great. Mac and cheese pasta with shrimp was beyond good as an app. Mussels were a tad salty but huge portion. Many many choices on entrees. More upscale, higher priced but worth it.
