“My Favorite Restaurant on MI”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

When all of the other restaurants were closed on Sunday, Verdi's was thankfully open! We had an early dinner and probably one of the first to arrive. From the outside, it doesn't look like anything too great but once you get inside, it's a whole new experience! The food was exceptional from bread to salad to Chilean Sea Bass. We were too stuffed for dessert unfortunately. This is our new favorite place on MI. We will definitely be back. I would just recommend to the owner for better curbside appeal!

“excellent dining experience”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

The four adults in our party had four different entrees and while they were all delicious, the Chilean sea bass was the clear cut winner! The service was excellent and both the owner and chef came to our table to see if we were satisfied. This concern despite the fact that we used a Groupon discount! Very classy environment and service. We would highly recommend this establishment.

“You had me at "gluten-free"!”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

My husband and I have driven past this restaurant for years and decided to give it a try based on so many positive Trip Advisor reviews and the fact that they listed many gluten free choices on their website. As a gluten-free diner, I'm always looking for restaurants with choices for me. We talked to the chef and he said that with only a few exceptions of pasta,clam chowder and maybe a few others, everything else is prepared gluten- free! This almost never happens! So I had the Brie appetizer and the grilled shrimp. My husband, who is NOT gluten free, had the Mac and cheese with shrimp appetizer and the tuna entree. We also both had the infused oil with bread. The waiter was totally ok with the fact that I brought my own GF bread to try the oil. I'm glad I did as the oil is as flavorful as everyone says. Our appetizers and entrees were delicious. We also each had a glass of wine. The service was friendly and helpful. We were both very impressed with Verdi's and will definitely return for dinner again. Next time, I'll try the meatloaf, it's GF, too!
Only question is, why did we wait so long to try this gem?

“Diamond in a strip mall”
Reviewed July 30, 2014 via mobile

This place exceeded all expectations. Service was outstanding and food was exceptional. I could live the rest of my life consuming the Mac and Cheese appetizer. A must get! We frequent Key West, and unless we take a direct flight, Verdi's WILL be a required stop in route either by car, or Key West Express.

“Wonderful triple birthday celebration!!!”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Wanted to find a place to celebrate three of our family members birthdays with great food and room to open gifts. Verdi's was true perfection. We were greeted and treated like real family, the table was decorated with birthday names and confetti to set the stage. Our server, Raoul, was attentive and well informed with the menu. The food was delicious, from the Caesar salad and the Pasta, to the Chicken Penne, Jumbo Shrimp and Scallops with linguine and the Jumbo Day Scallops, everyone raved about their choice. The desserts were also very good and made the evening very special. We will definitely be back!
