“Quality year after year”
Reviewed March 13, 2014

My wife and I have been to Marco on four occasions. Verdi's is the one restaurant that we continue to return to. The atmosphere is very cozy and romantic. The staff is always excellent and the food, be it steak or seafood continues to impress. We will always keep Verdi's on our list for dinner.

“Unimpressed”
Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I went for dinner here based on the trip advisor reviews. I was very unimpressed with everything. I ordered the squash cheddar soup which was warm, not hot, and tasted like it was from a can. I also ordered linguini with a pomadoro sauce which was the worst sauce I ever had. No flavor. Too much oil. I couldn't finish it. Spinach salad was ok but swimming in dressing. The woman at the table next to me sent back her meal cause it didn't taste right. My husband had the shrimp appetizer which was tasty. He also had the filet which was good. I would not go back here. Price are too high for a subpar meal. Service was average at best. No atmosphere either. Crowded little room.

Dear Trip Advisiorian's

"Have you ever went over a friends house to eat

And the food just ain't no good
I mean the macaroni's soggy the peas are mushed
And the chicken tastes like wood
So you try to play it off like you think you can

By sayin' that your'e full"

Well at Verdi's you don't have to play it off, just let use know you're unhappy with your meal for WHATEVER reason, we will fix it! All our soups our home made, everything we serve is homemade except for the Hagen Daz Ice Cream and our bread. That night we sold out of squash soup. However, I can understand that maybe you didn't like it, that's ok just let us know and we would've changed it for you. We put to much dressing on your salad, we will make you a new one. You didn't like the sauce on your pasta, even though its the same sauce we've been serving here for 16 years, it does't matter to use, we'll get you something else. My staff main objective is to do whatever it takes to insure each guest leaves our restaurant as a ravening fan, and the vast majority of the times we achieve our goals, unfortunately we fell short on your visit.

“Excellent Food -- Beautiful Plates!”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Another Marco restaurant in a strip mall -- not where we would expect to find a fine restaurant, but sure enough, Verdi's was very fine indeed. Our server was very accommodating to special requests. We all ordered something different -- and all were very happy with our meals. The plates were beautifully presented. The chef even came out to ask how we enjoyed our meals. Only complaint, and it is not the fault of the restaurant, was the very loud group sitting behind us -- it was hard to hear our own conversation over their shouting.

“Awesome Meal”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We had an unbelievable meal at Verdi's in Marco Island! My husband had the tuna which was perfect! I had the sea bass which was the best sea bass I have ever had. They were very busy the night we were there so the wait staff was stretched but the meal more than made up for the slow service. We will definitely be back on our next visit to Marco! This is a must go to restaurant!

“really good Italian food”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We have allergies and the waiter was very attentive and careful. The food was tasty, one of us had an excellent pork chop, the other very fresh, nicely prepared fish. The place is crowded and not big on atmosphere, but they get the job of cooking a good meal done very well. They even pay the taxi to and from the hotel!
