I had lunch here with two friends and had an excellent time. We started with cocktails, there is a good choice of classic and more modern cocktails as well as a large wine list. Warm bread rolls were brought to the table with a choice of butter, olive tapenade and a whipped feta dip. As it was lunch time I did not want a huge main meal so just ordered the carpaccio starter. It was very good but not exactly as I have had it in Europe where it is completely uncooked. This appeared to have been cooked very rare and then thinly sliced, served with finely sliced cucumbers. There was balsamic and oil on the table which I added, as well as ground black pepper. It was very tasty. One of my friends had the same as me, while the other had veal saltimbocca which he said was excellent - it certainly looked very tasty. We all three had desserts, mine was the almond ice cream with nut cracknel, the others had the white toblerone cheesecake, and the third had a ‘deconstructed’ tiramisu. I enjoyed my dessert as did my friend who had the tiramisu, but the other friend who had the cheesecake was disappointed with the taste and the texture. The service was reasonably good, although as the restaurant was quiet the staff did spend a lot of time chatting to each other rather than keeping an eye on the customers. All in all we had a very good lunch.

Been here a number of occasions and really enjoyed. My wife and I went on 27th May 2022. Service was excellent (Philane) starter of “prawn cocktail” was very good however the mains were a disappointment, both had veal (different sauces) Vega tables and startches arrived cold and meals were sent back to be reheated, the meals came back hot but this also toughend the veal. Unfotunaltley this is a trend in most restaurants where the sides are cold. For the the prices you pay it is not acceptable. It was reported to a floor manager.

Verdicchio’s Restaurant and Wine Cellar at Montecasino is nothing short of a culinary masterpiece. We felt like we were in a Tuscan villa, surrounded by the enchanting atmosphere of Montecasino. The setting was idyllic, making us feel as though we were dining in the heart of Italy itself. The food was a revelation, with each dish showcasing the chef's unparalleled skill and passion for Italian cuisine. The desserts were a delightful finale. While Verdicchio’s might be considered a premium dining destination, offering an upscale experience, the value was extraordinary, especially when compared to similar establishments in Canada where we’re from.

Visited verdicchio with my husband just before a movie. Food was out quickly, staff were friendly and food was delicious. Had the veal saltimbocca, first time tasting veal and it melted in my mouth, was so good. My husband had a chicken pasta, he also enjoyed it. The pasta portions are quite big. Really good restaurant, will definitely be back.

Brilliant all around the wine cellar boasts some beautiful vintage wines and the food could not be faulted. Did take their time so no place for the fast food crashers. Waiters where world class.

This was the first time that we tried the restaurant and I must say that the food was amazing. We are a family of four, celebrating my daughters birthday, and each of the meals were amazing. The were ample options even for my daughter who is a picky eater. Each of the meals were delicious and the desserts was amazing. The only problem, was the service which was a bit spotty and the only reason that I didn’t give it a four rating. Whilst the staff are very friendly we had to ask twice for my sons drinks and for cutlery before we received them. Other than the above, this will definitely a place we will try again.

We made a booking 29 September for a 40th birthday that we would host. The person who was arranging this spoke to a lady by the name of Sandra to agreed to have us and my wife even made a trip there to look at the venue. They agreed we can have a separate menu etc. Today, our friend who was arranging with the venue calls to check if they have ribs whilst on the call, Olga mentions that she was meaning to call us to say they can't accommodate us and they will have to cancel our booking. After a back and forth with my friend, Olga mention that Jeanette, who seems to be the owner has cancelled our booking and has the audacity to say that she is not here to be politically correct but she is running a restaurant. This is because there is a bigger function taking place and all of a sudden there is not place for the little people. It is a month ago when we made our booking, and they cancel a few days before the function. This is CAPITALISM at it's best. No regard for people, no integrity, doesn't matter what you do to others to get ahead, it's all about MONEY!!! WORST PART She said to my friend “not to be judgemental, but black people are always late, your guests might not show up at 7pm”. My friend responded that she is being racist, and she does not know her or her guests. Jeanette's response “if you want to play the race card that is fine with me, I am trying to run a restaurant here, I am not trying to be politically correct.” - People still talk like this in 2022...PATHETIC!!! Had they mentioned it was not possible when we called 29 September this would not be an issue, but at this stage, people have been invited, arrangements made and they drop us at the very last minute not concerned whether or not we have an alternative, as long as their BOTTOM LINE is met. This is disgraceful and leaves a very bad taste in my mouth to think this is how people treat their clientele.

We live abroad and made the booking way in advance, in order to secure a table with our family in South Africa, however, uoin arrival, we had to wait for a table, when finally ready, it was a plain table, no decorations, as in zero, the waiter took our drinks order and vanished, we flagged 2 more waiters down and then finally spoke to the manager, it was really poorservice to say the least, by this time we were all fed up and miserable and the grandkids were hungry and tired. The manager apologised as well as the initial waiter, but it spoilt it for us and didn't enjoy our meal, perhaps it was mediocre due to our mood, but it wasn't what we paid/booked for either, truth be told, we will never return to the restaurant again!

My sister and I chose Verdicchio's to celebrate my Dad's 82 birthday, and we were not disappointed with our choice. We chose the outdoor seating which was comfortable and cosy.The food is exceptional and well presented.Our waiter Alfonso was very attentive. Thank-you to everyone for making my Dad feel special on his birthday. We all agreed we had enjoyed ourselves enormously and will definitely be back.

What a pleasurable time at Verdicchio. The staff are friendly and make you feel at home. They pay attention to detail and make your experience one to remember. The food offering is extensive and will definitely be returning. Went there for Restaurant Week and it's one of the best! Desserts are a must.
