Absolutely love the pizza Verde Rosa cooked in the wood burning brick oven. Very fresh prosciutto, arugula and mozzarella. I'm hooked on the chili pepper infused olive oil. My husband loves the pistachio pesto pizza. Never a miss at this quaint restaurant. Great service, valet parking, wonderful food. We take advantage of the half price bottle of wine nights on Tuesdays.

Immediately after arriving at the restaurant I decided I would not be drinking. The beers started at around $7 and bottles of wine were all over $35. The draft beer was not "turned on" the day we dined so the options were even further limited.
Pizzas were around 12" but all were priced over $15.
The staff was pleasant but the place was almost empty minus the OrderUp delivery staff that popped in occasionally.
The worst part of the restaurant would have to be the calzones. We ordered one and it seemed to have more sauce, mushrooms, and cheese on top of the calzone than inside. Isn't that a pizza?
The only enjoyable part of the restaurant in my opinion was the atmosphere. The design is elegant but I do not see myself returning.

We experienced very friendly wait staff and attentive service. The food was delicious. After having spent some time in Italy, I am happy to find a Neapolitan pizza place here in the city. The only turn-off was when I ordered to go once, and tried to switch the regular mozzarella for Buffalo and add an egg, I was shut down. "We do not recommend changes to the pizzas" was what I was told. "recommend" is the wrong word, just say you don't allow changes. Or better yet, realize your customers are aware consumers and allow some changes. I really just wanted an egg, which is easy enough to accommodate.

First time at Verde, recommended by a friend. The pizza was quite good. It took us a while to make up our minds because they have a lot of different choices on their menu. While the pizza was good, it was not the best pizza I have had, and I feel that it was a bit too expensive for what it is. Nevertheless, I liked dining there and would recommend the place.

The cheeses are fresh made. The crust on the pizza is perfect. Variety abounds, something for everyone. An energetic atmosphere (i.e. if you are looking for quiet, romantic, then you want to go somewhere else - and save this for a more fun filled atmosphere night.

Verde lived upto its reputation as being one of the top places for Pizza in Baltimore. The Pizza was outstanding. Crisp thin crust, fresh mozz, nice sauce. The appepetizer meatballs were marginal and the excellent marinara they came in could not hide the fact that the meatballs were marginal. Good beer selection - a pity that it was not materially cooler than room temperature. The room temperature was warmish - almost as though the A/C was under-engineered and couldn't keep up with the 101 degree reading on the car's exterior thermometer when we pulled up.

Verde's web site says "Valet Parking is available". Good thing. Parking in that neighborhood is impossible and for those with bad knees the hike from the American Can Company is out of the question. A $7 Valet Tab (plus tip) onto top of the Verde tab makes a for an expensive pizza.

If you want a great Pizza and an better overall experience, Earth, Wood and Fire in Bare Hills would be worth a look. Parking there is free, next to the resturant and plentiful.

Service was slow even though it was a calm Sunday night. We sat outside and my husband had to go in to ask the server to take our order. Overpriced food for the quality, like $15 for lumpy burrata. The valet didn't even know how to drive our manual car.

We chose this restaurant because it was labeled "kid friendly". Whoever came up with that description must have had an off sense of humor! They did have highchairs, but that's where the kid-friendliness stopped. The reverse of Sunday's brunch menu and a few crayons - was that it? The host (youngish gentleman, not the owner) specialized in glaring at our table and was offended when we had to briefly remove the shirt of our 14 month old grandson. We never quite figured out who our server was. We were seated by the bar (a good location of a family dinner?) and were told we would just have to accept that the bartender was very busy at this moment. Well, this is not what we had expected for our son's farewell dinner before returning to Europe with his family. It is sad, that the evening cannot be repeated for our family: great grandmother from California (85 years), us, and our son and family. Sorry, we cannot recommend the restaurant as a family/kid friendly restaurant.

P.S. Since when do you get charged for bread with appetizers?

Pizza's were non traditional, which we loved. Drink list was refreshing and different, very pleased with the Dover Alley! Enough of a cocktail, wine & beer list to satisfy any company. Although we did not order one, the salads looked fresh and lite. We will definitely be going back!

We must have come on a very busy night as our appetizers took over 40 minutes to come out and they were mussels and a plain salad. The mussels were over cooked and over salted, had to send them back and the salad was lackluster. The pizzas were the only redemption because the staff was not unpleasant but not pleasant. Great gluten free pizza crust.

Baltimore just became a lot more livable now that we have true Napolitan pizza restaurant. That designation sets the standard extremely high as even in Italy, one has to earn that title, as did Verdi.
The salads are fun and interesting and the definitely desserts are worth ordering.
Simplicity rules at this foodie-destination, as it should be.

Ed and Perez at Verde helped us put on a fantastic rehearsal dinner. All of our guests said it was the best they had been too! The food was delivered family style as we had 30 guests on the second floor of the restaurant. It was a great mingling atmosphere for everyone to get to know each other and celebrate. Everyone left with full stomachs! And the bar service was fantastic. The menu was 100% flexible and customizable. Ed, the owner, was great with communication. The price point was perfect for us. The experience was delicious and more than we could have asked for. If you have never been to Verde, you MUST go! It is great for a date night, a business gathering, or a rehearsal dinner. Thank you Ed and Perez and the entire staff at Verde Pizza.

I really liked Verde: the food, ambiance, service...all good. The owner was on hand and hands-on. However, they just plain booted the whole Restaurant Week idea. Now, unless I have been on another planet, the idea of RW is to give the customer a little extra for venturing out in the dead days of February. At Verde, they got it backwards: they really ripped off the customer. Here goes the math: a three course meal at Verde was $30 for RW. This included a pizza, a salad, and a dessert. However, the salad and the dessert for their RW was a half size portion. So, pizza ($14), salad (originally $14 but half size= $7), and dessert (originally $9 but half size = $4.50) comes to a $25.50, and they charge $30. Not such a good deal for the customers. To their credit, when I brought this to their attention, hey gave me $15.00 gild certificate for future use.
Anyway, I really liked Verde, but they need to get their RW concept reorganized.

I have been to Verde a number of times before this one- however, never with a group as the one I went with the other night. I was unsure how they were going to be able to accommodate us, but they managed to do it in a pretty comfortable way. The food was delicious as always and the wine recommendation was terrific. As usual, the burrata was outstanding! The noise level was very high - but that can only be expected in a space of that size on a Friday night. The food is always great and this is a wonderful place to go with friends for a fun, casual night out!

My husband and I dined at Verde two nights ago. We had the pesti appetizer with restaurant baked bread. Both the assorted pesti (olive, basil, and chili) and bread were yummy, yummy, yummy. The bread was warm and crunchy on the outside and soft inside. (I'm a bread lover, and I frequently judge restaurants based on this single factor even though I know that I shouldn't.) I had the lasagna pizza, and my husband had the vegan vegetarian pizza. We both loved the crusts (light, airy, yet crisp on the bottom). The pizzas were as good if not better than the ones we devoured in Italy. For dessert, my husband had flourless chocolate cake, which he devoured, and I had affogato with espresso, which I enjoyed. We plan to return soon.

This wood-fire oven pizza place is tucked in a corner row house, stripped to the brick walls and well appointed to give a hip, vivacious atmosphere. The menu has pizzas from classic margarita with fresh basil and buffalo mozz, to pistachio pesto and sausage. We started with the roasted beet salad, trio of pesti, and Zeppole di San Zanobi - fried dough puffs served with prociutto di parma. . . it's little dough balls from heaven! All of our appetizers were amazing. We did a sampling of pizzas and shared around the table. The Prosciutto e Rucola & Salsiccia e Funghi were the hits. The only down side to this gem is the service. Our server was way slow. It wasn't so much that the service was slow, it was that our server seemed really flighty and clueless about the menu. She had to come back to the table a couple of times to confirm things, and still goofed up our dessert orders. We have been back since (same server, who was super slow, we waited for 15 minutes to place our order and she had 1 other table in our section, still a little on the dim side) and will return again for the amazing pizza. . . and the fried dough balls.

The food and service were good, and the menu had lots of options. Unfortunately, the tables were packed so closely together that I could hear the people next to me chewing their pizza and I could feel their breath. If we were any closer, the experience could have been considered - how shall I say? - intimate. For this reason, I simply wouldn't recommend it.

The music was great and not at all too loud. It was nice talking to the owner. Can't wait to go back. Will absolutely spread the word about this gem.
