great pizzaVerde has the best pizza in Baltimore. As close as you can get to eating in Campania. I would eat there everyday if they added some pastas.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, all roundPerfect weather and and perfect outside table, warm welcome, quick to bring a bottle of chilled white wine. The pizza has great mouthfeel, and very high quality ingrediants. It was simple, thin without being floppy, and delectable. Desert was perfectly acceptable, the imported gelati (dulche de leche) standing out over the flourless chocolate tort. We will be back.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, fresh Italian pizzaWould definitely recommend and plan on going back soon. The pizza was fresh and delicious! And the service was excellent. Great loc spot!6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Pizza in BaltimoreThis is the best pizza you can get in Baltimore! Authentic, great options, great salads - everything is always delicious! Would recommend and go back often!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBaltimore's best pizzaI have visited Verde several times and it never disappoints. Fun atmosphere, creative pizza's, and really nice owners that make everyone feel at home. The pistachio pizza is amazing, and every other pizza on the menu is really great. Next time I go I'm going to try the calzone!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMauthenticThis is truly authentic Italian pizza..no Americanized stuff. The sftaff is friendly and knowledgable about the food, wine & beer. The ingredients are fresh and tasty.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ServiceWe had 4 different pizzas, all of which were DELICIOUS! Food took a while because of a big party, but the staff/owners were very nice and accommodating so it didn't matter at all.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfettoWe had an early dinner, the restaurant was very quiet, but we immediately felt that the staff was efficient and ready for any crowd. Our waitress was impeccable, and charming. Our sixteen year old son was smitten by the calzone. I won't dive into a lengthy description of each serving, suffice to say that the prosciutto, bresaola, olives and focaccia in our appetizer were perfect, and served in no time at all. Special mention goes to the homemade mozzarella, made daily using fresh bufala milk curds, simply the best mozzarella I've had since leaving Napoli, you should go just for that taste alone. My pizza was excellent, that's all.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTied for best pizza in BaltimoreTied for best pizza in Baltimore with Hersh's and Matthews. Perfectly burnt thin-crust and they have chili-infused olive oil, haven't seen that since Italy.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Pizza in East BaltimoreExcellent pizza! Fresh ingredients and the perfect crispy yet soft crust. The atmosphere is rustic chic. Try the Proscuitto de Parma! Service was excellent...very helpful. This may be the best Neopolitan style pizza in the city, except possibly Iggie's. If you are in the mood for deep dish Chicago style, go to Matthew's.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMon the pricy side for pizzaWe went on a Sunday for an early dinner. The room is comfortable and urban,The pizza and calzone we ordered were very good - (fairly thin crust if that's what you like )but the salad was nothing to speak of and tiramisu bland. Wine was good as was the Cappuccino. My only real concern in returning was that each item seems a couple of dollars too high and added up to a surprising bill for a pizza place.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMI went here for Mother's dayI went here for Mother's day brunch. I think it was the first time the restaurant was trying brunch dishes. The pizzas with eggs were delicious and I hope they keep them on the menu. They were very accomodating to our large group that included 2 small children. There was a minor issue with confusion in the kitchen and not getting the pizza we ordered (I think this was related to them trying the new brunch dishes and not being used to them in the kitchen), but the owner was more than accomodating and the pizza we did get was delicious. I loved the atmosphere, very charming decor. I will definitely come back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPricey for what it is, butPricey for what it is, but a very nice meal nonetheless.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and prices, okay serviceGot a last minute table on Sat night and were seated right away. Tables are way too close together. App w house made mozzarella and prosciutto was fantastic. Brughetta salad great and a big portion. Pizza was very good - a prosciutto with red sauce and a white pizza with arugula. Dinner for 4 w apps/dessert was less than $90 - so reasonable. Service could use some polishing. Our dishes were only partially cleared after each course - possibly because the guys couldn't reach the other side of our table without someone getting up from their chair. The waitress checked in frequently (as did the owner) but was so hard to hear and didn't offer refills until the end of the meal. we'll definitely be back and hopefully they'll work on the service.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFreshPreviously Birches restaurant, the interior has received a facelift, retaining the classic look but lightening things up. It's very airy inside now. The food has always been freshly made and very flavorful, whether it be a salad, pizza or calzone. Drink options are decent and the space is comfortable. Try the outdoor seating.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh ingredients!Verde has wonderful Italian pizza. All their ingredients are so fresh. I would also recommend the caprese salad. All their pizzas can also be made gluten free. The owner also makes you feel so welcomed. A true neighborhood gem!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was the best pizza I'veIt was the best pizza I've had in Baltimore!!! It was a little sad because it was so empty, I hope it survives. I think the location makes it a little difficult. They may want to start offering delivery, even if just in downtown, to make it a little more visible/available. I just really want them to survive! Awesome pizza! Great atmosphere! Will definitely be back!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was great. TheEverything was great. The hostess and server were kind and helpful. We later found out the owner is very helpful as well. We found out because we made a reservation for 6. When the first 2 of us arrived they sat us right away at our reserved table. The next 3 arrived very shortly after us and the hostess couldn't find the reservation. The owner was worried and quickly made a table for 6 at the front of the restaurant. I later called the rest of the group to find out they were already there. They must have take the reservation off the list when the first two arrived so that when the rest of the party arrived it looked like there was no reservation. Other than that small hiccup everything was great.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMReally nice environment, lovelyReally nice environment, lovely bar area and seating outside in a lovely neighborhood. The pizza was very good and the service was too. I recommend a visit to Verde.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staf was very accomodatingThe staf was very accomodating to my request for a large table. The food was excellent and atmosphere was beautiful.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss the Pizza Con NutellaThis was our first trip to Verde. We got the Prosciutto Di Parma (red sauce and prosciutto) and the Pistacchio E Salsiccia (pesto and sausage). They were both phenomenal. We also got the Pizza Con Nutella for dessert which was also REALLY good. We will definitely be coming back soon.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious pizzas, with tonsDelicious pizzas, with tons of varieties to chose from. As a party of 6, no one got the same dish and we all were happy to ecstatic with our choices--very fresh and many unusual and interesting combinations. Also, the service was excellent and very friendly and engaged, without appearing to hover. Overall a wonderful experience and great addition to the neighborhood.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat pizza, Canton favoriteVerde never disappoints. Friendly and considerate owner, who always stops by your table, delicious food (especially the pizza), and great service. A true gem in Canton.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPizza is amazing! Tastes justPizza is amazing! Tastes just like you are in Italy.
The renovations made to the restaurant were beautiful.
The owners were present and so friendly3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best gluten free pizzaThe best gluten free pizza I've tried in Baltimore.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally lovely space. HitsTotally lovely space. Hits upscale and friendly neighborhood notes all at once.
Valet parking is a nice (and needed touch) as street parking is very limited. Their menu is tightly arranged and gratifyingly simple. We had an Italian lager that was incredible.
Salads are lightly dressed and scrumptious. Rustica comes with breseola which looks gorgeous atop the greens. Burrata comes out in a huge portion and is very fresh but doesn't have the knock-your-socks off richness you might be looking for. Pizzas are beautiful. We had one white (butternut cream, smoked moz, zucchini, red pepper, basil) and red (salsiccia and prosciutto?). Whatever you do, go for the offerings with smoked moz. Woodsy, smokey, divine.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMVerde is AWESOME ! A 'MUSTVerde is AWESOME ! A 'MUST GO' for couples or groups !
Food INCREDIBLE .... you almost feel as if you have your own private CHEF !
They cater to every desire in a professional yet friendly and special way !
We intend to return to this restaurant and OFTEN !3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Verde. Came once beforeI love Verde. Came once before and thought it was SO nicely transformed from former Birches. Owner was VERY friendly and enthusiastic and we enjoyed chatting with him and learning about their renovations, pizza oven, etc. This time I took my husband who is a BIG FAN of DC's Two Amy's Neapolitan pizza. I hoped he would love Verde's pizza just as much but he said it lacked something - maybe not enough olive oil on the dough somehow? I, for one, ADORE their calzones and that's what I'll keep going for. Our server was very efficient and attentive - they have GREAT staff and that's what truly makes it worth going back again.....wish it were closer to us in Mount Vernon but we will take the trip and visit again. Thanks!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was delicious! EveryoneDinner was delicious! Everyone enjoyed the salads and pizzas. We had a gluten free person with our group and she was very pleased with the GF pizza crust. They make their own mozzarella in house,
amazing! The owner came to greet our table and was very kind. Looking forward to the next visit!3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
