    This hip pizzeria offered a tantalizing menu of pizzas. It was a challenge to choose just one but when I finally did, I wasn't disappointed. The crust was not too thin and not too thick and perfectly crispy on the outside just like I like it. It was big enough for two of us to share as well - gotta love that! A couple of downsides...the tables were so packed into the restaurant so that my fiancé, a slim 6'1" guy couldn't actually squeeze into the space between our table and the one behind ours. He sat at an angle to the table, with his chair jutting into the aisle. The valet was also a single man operation. We stood outside more than 20 minutes waiting for our car after dinner and ended up being late for our main Saturday night event.

    Never have I ever in my life (including my 10 years of working in the restaurant industry myself and frequent trips to dine out) have I been asked to vacate a table because the next reservation has arrived. We had a 6:45 reservation at Verde, enjoyed the 3 course restaurant week meal (our pizzas came out while we were still barely started on the first course). No sooner than 5 seconds after I had put the pen down from signing the check the host came by the table and asked us if we could go ahead and leave so the 8 pm people could be seated on time. The whole experience was rushed. Extremely disappointing - that kind of experience will always outweigh the evening no matter how much you enjoy the food.

    Dined on 2/15/2014
    Verde is always a hit! Food is awesome! The burrata is a must and have yet to try a pizza that I didn't like. Parking can be an issue since it is a neighborhood, so definitely worth it to valet, it's 5$ but well worth the cost. Things can get busy on Friday and Saturday, so definitely plan for extra waiting time and make a reservation. Sometimes there is only 1 valet attendant so there can be a wait for that as well, but totally fine as long as you allocate a few extra minutes. Service is great, Ed the owner is always there and making sure things are going well and always stops by to say hello to each table. Alexa is a great server.

The family that owns and runs the restaurant is friendly and warm and its felt from the moment you walk in the door. The pizza is undeniably the BEST in the Baltimore area. This place is a must go!

    I went with a platonic friend on Valentine's day. When we told the server we did not want the $55/person gauger "special" she disapprovingly whipped her head so fast around she may have whiplash. Aside from that, fantastic food and fantastic service. I'm going to go find a romantic partner now to try this again.

    We went here for Valentines day and the food was excellent! You get a lot of food for your money which is good and it tasted great. However the service was extremely slow and the restaurant was very cramped and loud. We didn't mind much about the slow service because we had plenty of food, and maybe it was just like that on Valentines day. Will have to check this place out on a non-holiday.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Typically Verde is amazing but I think due to overbooking Valentines Day and the large pre-fixed menu the service suffered. We had reservations and waiting to be seated while there were tables visably open and while another couple with the same number of people and same time (who arrived after us) were seated before us. My fiance is in a walking book from ankle surgery and was made to walk up there stairs to be seated when multiple 2 people tables were available downstairs. It also took us 30 minutes to get coffee after we ate. Still very good food though.

    I had high expectations & was disappointed. The restaurant itself is really nice and has great ambiance. I can see how it might be a little loud when busy. The server was great and very attentive. The pizza? Not so much. I ordered the Quattro Formaggi con Funghi. The ratio of the four cheeses was way off. I could barely taste the gorgonzola and when I order a pizza with mushroom and cheese I expect it to be covered in mushrooms. Overall this was a plain cheese pizza for $17. My date ordered the pizza Romana. The menu said there was corn on the pizza, but we didn't see any. Besides that, nothing to write home about. Not sure if we caught the kitchen on a bad day, but it was quite an expensive meal for pizza I could've made better at home.

    Wonderful neighborhood restaurant and definitely not just your pizza place around the corner! I have been here several times and the server (Alexa) always recognizes me and does such a wonderful job of personalizing service. The food is amazing, approachable and memorable. The pizzas are truly akin to what I experienced in Italy and the fresh burrata cheese is a must! Everyone is very nice and friendly and it is clear that ingredients are fresh and of high quality. It is often busy which is why I made a reservation online (definitely recommend for Friday/Saturday nights). They now offer a full bar and craft cocktails! Upstairs can get a little loud, but if that's your scene, it's a great view! All around strong recommendation!

    We had dinner at Verde previously right after it opened and this week to support a local neighborhood charity. This place is always consistent with great service and quality food. Both times we ate here the manger even came over to introduce himself and see that we were happy with our meal. On this visit we had my one year old son, no issues getting a kid-friendly pizza and high chair. I would recommend this restaurant to friends and we'll be back.

    Dined here tonight with the girlfriends, 5 of us total. Everything was delish! I had made a reservation, but it was pretty quiet on this rainy cold Monday night. Parking however, was a nightmare. The ambiance is warm and welcoming, and I can tell it would be a great place to dine al fresco during the summer. The menu had extensive pizza offerings - almost too many, as I stared at the menu for a while, with my eyes glazing over. Everything was really tasty & authentic & I'll definitely be returning!

    I have been to Verde several times and the food has always been good. The prices have gone up, however. We were seated at a table that was halfway into the hall where the bathroom is located. I don't think there should be a table there at all! Our waitress insisted on up-selling us on everything. The wine she recommended was not good -- but it was half-price night so we didn't send it back. She said the pizzas were personal sized but three of us could have easily shared two. Overall it was not a good value for the money.

    Because I was coming in with a large group on a Saturday night, I made a reservation ahead of time. Even so, we waited 25 minutes past the reservation time to be seated. There isn't a good waiting area in the restaurant so all ten of us crowded around other people's tables while we waited. It was terribly awkward and, even though the food was amazing, our experience left a bad taste in many of my friends' mouths.

    Verde's food is always excellent- you can tell that they use high quality, fresh ingredients to create consistently delicious dishes. One note- you absolutely need to make a reservation because the space in very small, and even with a reservation you will most likely have to wait 10-15 minutes. The good news is that the wait will definitely be worth it!

  • Best "Foodie" Pizza in Baltimore
    FellsFrequentDinerVIP
    Dined on 1/24/2014
    Definitely the best pizza in Baltimore if your idea of pizza goes beyond Pizza Hut. Tons of options, unique toppings, amazing crust and "nearly" gluten free pizza that actually tastes delicious. On a Friday night, even in winter, it is quite loud and bustling inside. Midweek is slightly quieter but the word on verde is definitely out. Note to celiacs---the gluten free pizza is wonderful but fixed in the same kitchen/oven with the regular pizzas.

    The food was delicious! Some of our party of six started with salads and then five finished with pizzas and one friend ordered the homemade lasagna. Everything we ate was wonderfully fresh, prepared with flavorful ingredients and featured delicious combinations. The fellow ordered Manhattans from the bar which featured rhubarb bitters - they were a big hit with everyone who tasted them. Service was good - friendly and efficient. I liked that the owner stopped by the table to greet us and then came by later to see how we enjoyed the food. This restaurant came highly recommended by a friend who said their pizza was the closest you would get to what you would experience in Italy and we were not disappointed! Definitely worth a visit!

    The ambiance and decor of this restaurant was wonderful - very clean, open, young and rustic. We enjoyed an extensive wine list, a lightly dressed pear and walnut salad, mozzarella and meatballs in a marinara sauce, and a vegetarian pizza. Big plus that all pizzas are able to be made on gluten free pizza! The only drawback to this restaurant is that the menu is not very flexible. You cannot customize your pizza or add toppings to any pizza, toppings can only be removed. Also, they did not have anchovies, which slightly disappointed my mom. BUT! We were pleased that the owner personally asked us about our experience. They seem eager to improve their customers' experience and he promised that anchovies will be on the menu soon!

    Small restaurant with a great atmosphere. Brick oven pizza was super tasty. We went on a Monday and I think they had more guests then anticipated because it was a holiday week. Food was delayed a few minutes in coming to the table. We didn't complain, but the manager came around with a plate of bread and a huge bowl of olives which he placed at our table and let us know it was on the house because he knew our food hadn't yet arrived. This is the kind of service that will keep us coming back. Overall a great little place.
