Only six minutes away from the Kew Botanic Gardens, Q Verde is a popular Mediterranean restaurant on Sandycombe Road that has a delightful villagey vibe. Food lovers flock to Q Verde for the wholesome menus and outstanding service, and this family-run restaurant genuinely makes you feel at home the moment you step inside the door. We love the terra cotta coloured walls, black board menus and the general rustic ambience, and the moreish menu is filled with temptations such as the fried chorizo sausage served with crispy rosti potatoes for starters, the fillet of pork with caramelized apples and a marsala jus for mains, and the traditional tiramasu for dessert.

Slightly pricey main course considering there were no veg or potatoes included
Don't like service charge being automatically included when only 2 people
Nice authentic restaurant, warm,friendly, good food

A good local. My new beau and I visited and had a perfectly charming meal. Great quality food overall, although my duck special was a tad on the too sweet side and a bit chewy. Lovely authentic Italian vibe. Tables quite close together so it's energetic and has a noise factor but this all adds to the ambiance.

What a super independent Italian restaurant. My sisters and I were staying in Kew with our mother and took her there. We all really loved it. Such a great atmosphere, attentive staff and of course great authentic Italian food. Will definitely visit again.

we chose this restaurant as it was close to Kew, which we were visiting for the Chihuly nights experience, we were not disappointed. The service was prompt and the food delicious. The only downside was the limited room for tables, they are all a bit squashed together.

Everything about our meal on Sunday was delicious with great service. There were 5 of us for my daughter's Birthday meal and we had a lovely mixed starter platter which ticked all the boxes.
The main courses were great especially the two specials of ravioli and the liver. Great puddings too.

Visited this fab little restaurant after a visit to Kew gardens and it didn't fail to please. From the charming host Gerardo and his team to the wonderful food and ambience. If I could change one thing it would be to bring the restaurant nearer to where we live in Portsmouth so that we could enjoy it more often

My wife and I enjoyed an early supper at QVerde last week. We were welcomed by the Restaurateur and given a choice of tables set for two. The Bruschetta was outstanding- fresh, juicy topping on a crispy toasted base with a hint of hot chili - a great way to start our supper.
For our main course we chose the spaghetti carbonara- an old favorite staple Italian meal, freshly prepared with egg in the mix, and again a hint of spiciness made it that bit more unusual.
Accompanied by a glass of Montepulciano, the meal was delicious and the service was prompt and friendly.

This is a little gem of of a restaurant. A warm and friendly welcome is guaranteed. The atmosphere has a quiet buzz, suited to either an intimate dinner or a greater get together. The food has never failed to impress, freshly cooked using quality ingredients. The menu changes regularly following seasonal trends with daily specials to tempt. We love it.

Great little restaurant very close to Kew Garderns which is why we chose it. Food was great and the staff were pleasant and attentive. One of the guests was allergic to cheese and they were 'on the ball' to ensure nothing on her plate was contaminated. Would definitely go back if I was in the area.

Very good service and a lovely Italian meal. However, I object to an automatic service charge being added. That should be at customers' discretion.

Excellent food, charming staff, a joy to eat at QVerde. I can not recommend it highly enough. We shared a starter of ravioli with cheese and truffle oil, delicious. My partner had the special monkfish and as she didn’t want an alcoholic sauce they replaced the sauce with a very tasty tomato one. I had veal Milanese, very tender with nice accompaniments.

My partner had the special dessert of orange and passion fruit tart, which she enjoyed immensely. It has spoilt other Italian restaurants for us!

We went to this restaurant after a visit in the Kew Gardens and were very happy with the service and the food. The waiters were extremely friendly and accommodating (even asked us if the temperature was okay!) and the food was excellent. The chocolate cake was particularly mouthwatering. Would recommend without hesitation!
