A word from Verde on Smith
WELCOME TO VERDE ON SMITH RESTAURANT, located in Brooklyn's Cobble Hill. Established in 2009 by Cono Morena, our food is rooted in the traditions of Northern Italian cuisine with a Southern accent. Only the finest organic ingredients are used for all dishes to be savored and enjoyed with our extensive wine list. Verde on smith is the marrying of Italian traditional cooking with a contemporary twist and a modern setting. Cono Morena was born in Salerno, Italy. He moved to New York in 1968 where he began his career in restaurant management. In 1985, he opened his first restaurant, Primadonna, located in Forest Hills, Queens. Verde is a result of over 35 years experience as a chef, manager and restaurant owner in New York.Continued

  • "Everything was lovely and most enjoyable except for the manager on duty. He was Italian speaking,professional but very serious- upon check in we were 1st timers were most excited to be in the area, were not given a warm reception- just a matter of fact/here's your table, so once we sat down our party commented on the fact. The gentlemen never smiled the rest of the evening, so I'm not sure why he appeared to be in down. This really leaves an impression however- the vibe around us made up for what he lacked. I would give another try and be happy to recommend!"

  • "Never having been before, we decided try out Verde and were very pleasantly surprised. My Lobster Fra Diavolo was delicious, as was my husband's Branzino "special" & my father's Pork Chop "special." We will definitely be back!!"

  • "and who doesn't? A true neighborhood gem. Saturday night leisurely family dinner while waiting for teenagers at Barclay Center concert. First time eating in Cobble Hill, great neighborhood, Verde is a fantastic find. Our 7:45 pm reservation for 7 was honored on time. Lovely ambience, brick walls, cozy atmosphere. Everything we ordered was delicious, thoughtfully and well prepared, lots of garlic. Salmon was outstanding, flavorful garlic mixture on top, with delicious couscous mixed with garlic, onion and broccoli rabe. Shared appetizer was a salad of beets, warm leeks and a wonderful cheese. Everyone at our table (6 adults and one very hungry younger teen brother) was satisfied completely and would visit again."

  • "A friend and I decided to catch up over dinner. We ordered off the daily specials list, recited by our server (braised octopus in tomato sauce with cilantro and fresh tomatoes, grilled portobello mushrooms over arugula and goat cheese salad). Everything was delicious! We also shared a bottle of prosecco and dessert. Towards the end of our meal, a large group arrived and the noise-level went up noticeably, but it was not a disturbance. I have enjoyed every meal I have had at Verde and look forward to returning."

  • "We arrived for a 6 pm dinner on a sunday. We were sat promptly. The menu has a good selection of italian dishes and their specials were even better. I thought the wine and cocktail list was very good. I ordered the lobster fra diavlo which was a good portion. The only thing I didnt like was how spicy it was. That was my fault for not telling them I'd like it milder but otherwise everything was delicious. Portions are not too large and not too small, they're filling. Chocolate lava cake was amazing. Highly recommend this place. No one bothered us or hovered over us. If we needed to find a waiter he was always to be found. I thought overall a fantastic place"

  • "I planned a birthday dinner last Saturday evening for a group of 5 at Frankie's but late Friday evening all of the "maybe's" turned into "yes's". I panicked because I knew Frankies doesn't have any tables large enough to seat a party of 11. I jumped on Open Table and found Verde on Smith. I hadn't heard anything about it but it had great reviews so we gave it a shot. We were a pretty loud group and a couple people in our party were very late (reservation was at 7:30, last one showed up at 8:45). They handled it very graciously and the service was outstanding. Cocktails were creative and yummy, food was fantastic...highlights were the bufalata, baked clams, eggplant lasagnetta, gnocchi, and tiramisu. Definitely going back here!"

  • "The dinner and service were wonderful. A problem arose when one of the members of my party of three asked for a re-fill of coffee. He was told that people were waiting for the table. My other friend and I were still enjoying our tea and hadn't finished our glasses of wine. I was really upset by this and let my feelings be known. This wasn't my first visit to this restaurant. Apparently, the owner realized his error and came by asking if we'd like more coffee. My friend was brought another cup."

  • "Went here for brunch this past Sunday and it was really good. We had the nutella crepes and French toast and took advantage of the $16.99 2 hour drink deal (mimosa, bellini, screwdriver, bloody mary). Definitely make a reservation as there can be a big wait...we were happy we did. We will be back to try the other items on their menu."

  • "We shared a Caesar Salad which was both ample and good tasting. My fish was soft, moist and very tasty in a good lemony sauce with very nicely done spinach. The Ribeye steak was done to perfection and as tasty as any in New York. We have no reservations about recommending this restaurant."

We had portobello mushrooms as an appetizer and it simply melted in my mouth. And the salmon was great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends."

  • "Made last minute birthday reservation for a Friday evening for 5 adults on Smith St. - after failing to find a single decent east village/union square/lower east side venue that could accomodate us, was relief to be able to book this in our own neighborhood. Manager went out of his way to accomodate our birthday request: allowing us to bring in our own dessert from nearby Boerum Hill bakery Betty's; and it was presented beautifully at the end of the meal. We had been for lunch but never dinner and were pleasantly surprised by quality of seafood and pasta- shellfish, scampi, bronzini all delicious - salmon with couscous dry but anything Italian-themed delicious. Service very friendly. Unlike many NYC venues, not too loud, we could converse!"

  • ""Verde on Smith" is now one of the top three restaurants on our ever popular Brooklyn Restaurant Row, Smith Street. Featuring Italian food, every dish we have had there has been excellent in all respects. The waitstaff is highly attentive and friendly, and the owner exercises a quietly watchful eye over his lovely little restaurant to insure that all is going smoothly. The bar at the front is lively and electric in appearance, and attracts a very attractive, low key, well-heeled crowd. The prices are amazingly good for the quality of the food presented."

  • "I was very happy with my meal at Verde. The appetizers were excellent. Most of the people in my party were very satisfied with our entrees. One person ordered the Seared Tuna and felt it was a bit over cooked. I ordered a Mojito and felt that there were too many mint leaves in the drink. Everytime I took a sip, the leaves got stuck in the straw. Dessert was delicious. The staff was very attentive. Everyone had a great time and I would definately go back there again."
