My husband and I can be found at brunch here most every weekend at Verde. The food is consistent and reliably good. They have options on the menu for the entire spectrum of weekend appetite... from keeping it light because you just left the gym all the way to crawling out of bed hungover. Throw in the boozy brunch option... More

I have visited this restaurant many, many times and never have been disappointed. The food and service are outstanding. Pastas are great. In the spring and summer, the back garden is a great place to eat . Our last meal was as good as always. Try the Veal Piccata with the best sautéed spinach!

The muscles did not taste particular fresh, but the eggplant appetizer was absolutely delicious. The prices were also reasonable, the crowd on the older side, but the staff very attentive.

Had dinner last night here with my husband. We loved this place. Food was delicious and the service was great. The portions are a good size. We had the lamb shank and the spaghetti w/ clams- both delish. We also enjoyed the interior design of the restaurant; well done. Go and enjoy! Have a glass of moscato too (one of... More

Have been here several times for brunch. Good selection. The dishes are very good, not THE BEST, but you won't be disappointed. They have a bottomless brunch option for drinks. Cafe Luluc next door is better, but cash only.

Being of Italian descent, I often compare the quality of Italian restaurant food to my own personal experiences with home cooking. We were so pleased with the appetizers of baked clams, fresh seafood salad, and salad nicoise. My family thoroughly enjoyed the fra divolo, clam, and marinara sauces with pasta The chicken and risotto was superb. This was topped off... More

We went by train to Brooklyn for dinner so we could walk back across the Brooklyn Bridge at night. Got off the train at Jay Street. Jay connects to Smith so we started down Smith looking for something appealing. Eventually arrived at Verde and its street appeal won us over some other options. Long narrow room with exposed brick wall.... More

Really nice abiance. The wait was too long for cafe luluc so we stumbled into this cute restaurant for our Sunday brunch. The food was delish. Best french toast around and the chicken sandwich was good. Limited Brunch menu. But it was still good.
