    Sitting outside at Verde in the summertime feels like being in Naples. Lights are draped from tree limbs, the waiter has a thick Italian accent, and the smell of wood-fired pizza in the air makes you hungrier by the minute. If you're a fan of true Neapolitan pizza, Verde doesn't disappoint. 00 flour, San Marzano tomatoes, homemade mozzarella, 90 seconds in the brick oven, perfection. I didn't think you could get much better than Iggies, but Verde somehow managed to do it. The menu is deeper, the atmosphere is more inviting, and the whole experience leaves you wanting more. Great place for a date or an evening get-together with friends. Highly recommend, best in Baltimore.

    Wonderful food, atmosphere, decor, and staff. Such a great find! The owner is extremely friendly and loves to chat with customers. Try the homemade limoncello-- absolutely delicious!! The pizza is outstanding. The pesto appetizer plate was scrumptious. The one and only drawback is parking. Verde is located in a somewhat residential area and finding a parking place was challenging. However-- it was totally worth it! I want to try Sunday brunch at Verde-- it's on my list of things to do this year.

    The special Pizza with clams and pork was way too salty with little else in terms of flavor. It was overpriced at $19. I think Hersh's pizza in Federal Hill serves much better high end pizza. As does the Iggies, Joe squared, and the Bagbys. I would return to these places over the Verde. The service was hit and miss. Other wait person was very informative to the table next to us, but our server did not provide half the information as the other wait person. Indifferent service at best.

    This is our favorite pizza place to come to. The food is phenomenal. Everything pairs and works together so well. The wait staff is great - service is always wonderful. We sat upstairs for the first time. It was a lot more quiet than the main level, which was nice for our particular visit. I highly recommend checking this place out. No matter how far out of your way it is, it's worth the trip.

    The food was delicious but $90 for 2 personal pizzas and 4 drinks was way too pricey for that kind of meal. Also, they do not provide complimentary Parmesan cheese for your pizza- they charge you for it. This seems ridiculous to me, especially when a personal size pizza is already $17. We won't be returning.

    After hearing such great things about Verde I was excited to give it a try for restaraunt week. It was very busy indoors so my date and I decided to sit outdoors. Was a quiet sidewalk table. Possible I had high expectations but I just wasn't very excited by the garganzola salad or the wild mushroom pizza. The tiramisu was great. There were lots of choices on the regular menu and I would probably give it another try.

    I have never had a bad meal here. If you can' t find a pizza to appeal to you on this menu, you just can' t be pleased. Great place to bring a happy group of friends for a fun evening. There is a small bar in front and there are usually some innovative seasonal cocktails offered. Staff is friendly and accommodating to various dietary restrictions , including gluten problems. The only downside of this place is its location in Canton because, you know, yuppies, millennials and parking.

    Was looking for a place to grab a bite to eat before a gathering at Patterson Park, found this gem on Open Table and couldn't have been happier! Valet parking was $7 and totally worth it - the restaurant is located on a corner and is wonderful inside. Sat at the bar since we arrive about 20 minutes before our reservation, enjoyed a few great libations and then was taken to our table on the second floor. Stairs are super narrow, but nothing terribly scary. Overall had a great time. Would recommend.

    This was great, authentic, brick oven pizza. Reminded me of pizzas in Italy. I had the red sauce pizza with prosciutto and argula and my brother had the red sauce pizza with mozzarella and sausage. Both were excellent. We both also tried one of their house cocktails - the Mickey - which was a basil, black pepper infused vodka with a top off of lemon soda. It was strange but tasty. Great atmosphere; light, natural wood and they've saved some old aspects of this space which has been a bar or restaurant since the 1930's (the owner filled us in) including the old trough from when this was a stag bar (be sure to ask about it). Outside seating was available but would be difficult to get on a nice night

    We took our son there to celebrate his birthday & had an exceptional meal. The pizzas were top notch - perfectly light and well charred dough. Salad was fresh and tasty. They even sent out a lovely tiramisu for our son's celebration. It also was subtle - not too sweet but rich and decadent. We'll be returning!

    The food was great at Verde! I went with my fiance and another couple. We each got a pizza (slightly larger than a personal pie - 4 large slices - good to eat 3 and box up 1), and all the types were great. The house-made cheese and prosciutto is delicious. Our only real issue was choosing which type of pie we wanted! There were SO many options (maybe a few too many, since some were similar). The drinks were also great, and different from what you find in most Baltimore bars. We will definitely be coming back! The only complaint I might have is that the seating area was a little cramped for our party, but once we sat down, it really wasn't an issue.

    clean restaurant but expensive. 3 of us ordering pizza and the special, lasagna with drinks totaled 130.00 with tip. pizza good but not worth this amount of money. lasagna: pasta too soft, tomatoes overpowered meal. they should have a childrens room as well. we happened to be seated on the main floor with 2 familes with children and baby bottles were being dropped and constant "mommy" talk. nothing wrong with this but the proximity was way too close as the tables are situated very close to one another.

    Dined here for a last minute dinner option on a Saturday night. The place was packed but after making a reservation we were seated instantly. The service was okay. We sat outside to enjoy the weather and two other tables had dogs which were both amusing and annoying. The pesto sampler tasted like regular store bought pesto. The homemade burratta was delicious. They were out of the meatballs which was a disappointment. The mushroom and truffle oil pizza was good but the red chili olive oil that we dipped it in was even better. We opted for the imported desserts which were fair (pistachio cheesecake and some sort of chocolate cake).

    Verde is our go to neighborhood restaurant and I recommend it to people all of the time. I am happy to say that the quality has not declined as often happens with new restaurants that start off with a bang. The owner Ed is so pleasant and it is obvious that he cares very much about the quality of the food and service. The servers are also an added bonus at this restaurant. Keep up the good work Verde!

    Nice decor, ambiance, but still casual.. Friendly, competent staff, who worked very well together. We had cocktails, which were tasty, split a salad (plenty for two, and delicious),a housemade sausage and wild mushroom pizza (ditto), and a very nice, reasonably priced, glass of Chianti. (Wine list as a whole is well-priced, with informative descriptions.) The flourless chocolate cake was OK, but a bit dry, while the accompanying dulce de leche ice cream was great. The only blip was the tiramisu - our slice appeared not to have been soaked, so it was really just layer cake with a lot of very nice whipped cream on top. Our server tasted it and told us she thought it was OK, but they willingly took it back. Use the valet parking.

    This was our 2nd visit in 2 weeks. The 1st was excellent: we sat outside on a gorgeous evening & everything was great. We were slightly overwhelmed by the menu, but didn't pay much mind. 2nd visit: we wanted to try something new & the menu made it difficult to decide- the organization is overwhelming & not well thought out. We were bothered when the chef would not add mushrooms to a vegetarian pizza that was covered in other veggies. It was extremely loud sitting inside & there are far too many tables squeezed in (our chairs touched the people sitting behind us). We would go back, but only to sit outside ordering our original choices, one of which was the uova bianca.

    In the two times that my family has been to Verde, we've never been disappointed by the food or atmosphere. The variety of pizzas is a little overwhelming and a knowledgeable server can be really helpful, particularly if you want wine to pair with your meal. On our first visit to Verde, our server was incredibly helpful in guiding our decisions based on our described preferences. During our most recent visit, the server was adequate but unremarkable. The dining experience was still perfectly nice, but this restaurant can really shine when all facets of the experience come together.

    Verde for lunch one sunny June Sunday: everything served beautifully, deliciously, proudly. Do no understand one thing. There were three lovely empty tables on the sidewalk under the trees with umbrellas and we were seated at a sunny table for two, no umbrella, up against the building. We were a party of two women, Those umbrella tables remained empty the whole time we were there. Although when the waiter returned to our tiny table with a large pizza take-home box, I said - where will this fit? He went to put it on one of the large empty tables with the umbrella - so I guess we couldn't sit there put our take-home food could. Sorry - the seating thing was irritating.

    In the early days, I loved the decor of this place but took issue with the "no substitutions" rule and wasn't too impressed with the gluten free crust. But we recently decided to give them another try and this time I was totally into it. Now that Tutti Gusti has changed their gluten free crust, Verde's version is clearly the best in town. The food was really great and the service and ambience was delightful as well.
