“Best of Marco”
Reviewed January 11, 2014

Excellent food, Great service. We saved this for our last dinner of our vacation, left the kids at the hotel and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. the place was very busy so we opted to eat outside, nice and quiet even though it is off the parking lot, it is bordered by bushes. The crowd ran a bit older with many families with teenage kids as well, not many little kids. The menu had many options including vegetarian - rare down here! We had meat, seafood, chicken, pasta, salads, desserts, wine, everything was well above average (we are former Montrealers who now live in New Jersey and dine mostly in Manhatten). Portions are large but not obscene. Reasonably priced wines, including by the glass. The service was excellent - the chef came out to meet with us and ask how we were enjoying our meal, he was very sweet! The desserts are made in-house an were so yummy, especially the Key Lime Pie. Prices were quite low compared to some other places in Marco and cheap compared to Naples - and the food was just as good if not better!

Great taste and courteous staff. Waiter was very helpful and suggested a great wine. All the entrees and desert were great. The steak and pork loin were amazing and would recommend it.

“Food was good and service was almost too good but eat indoors”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My wife and I sat outside for a dinner at Verdi's. The outside area is not very attractive and we could hear the traffic on Collier all through dinner. My wife did not like the dressing on the salad although she said it is simply a matter of taste. She also had a pasta dish that was good and plentiful although not good enough for her to eat the leftovers. I had a very good pork prime rib. I had never heard of such a dish before and it was excellent. The service was good, almost intrusive, maybe because we were the only dinners outside for much of the dinner.

“Nice Dining Experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We ate with a large party of 15, and our waitress was very attentive. However, the table would have benefited from a second server and/or a bit more table support. The restaurant itself seemed a little cramped and prices were higher than I expected, but the food was very good. We all enjoyed our meals and food the service to be friendly and accommodating. The tables were covered with white paper, and kids were provided with crayons to keep them busy, which was a nice touch. Kids' orders were placed first so they did not get antsy. Staff at the table and in the kitchen were clearly experienced and professional.

“The Place”
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

Surprisingly I ate here for the first time in December. I don't know why that is, I've been staying Marco for 20 years. Big mistake - this restaurant spoils you for other places. Welcome was great on an evening when the restaurant was full, glad we had a reservation. Serving staff were very good and a nice touch was the lad who bussed the table came to introduce himself. There were 6 of us and we were seated by the entrance which was not ideal but then they pulled a curtain divider across, perfect solution. Caesar salad with anchovy followed by a perfectly presented swordfish. Very attractive SB wine by the glass. I never have desert but was tempted on this occasion because everything was so good. It was good - not sure I should have been tempted but what the hell. Chef came and introduced himself which was nice.
