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.

Always most welcome. For starters we shared the truffle flavoured ravioli and bruschetta, both were lovely. For main I had chicken with garlic and my partner had sea bass which was cooked well. For dessert we had home made pistachio cheesecake and lemon tart both were outstanding

We had booked a table to eat after a visit to the lights at Kew. One of our party had to catch a train back to KIng's Lynn so we appreciated the swift service. Food was good. Staff were friendly and efficient. It was a very pleasant end to our evening.

Me and my friend always love dining here. It has to be our favourite place. The food and drink is consistently delicious and the service is always outstanding. My friend tried the new addition to the menu- Swordfish and it didn’t disappoint! I had my trusty fave- spicy Tuscan sausage pappardelle. It’s just so yummy! We also had the lemon and passion fruit tart for dessert which We hadn’t tried before but was spot on after the meal. With a nice bottle of house white, it was fab. Always receive a warm welcome here! This is why we come back time and time again. Thanks Q Verde!

Booked on a whim for a Thursday evening. Having read the reviews, I was looking forward to “the best Italian outside central London”. I thought it was a rip off and exceedingly poor value. We said we would share a garlic bread starter, ordered two dishes (ravioli and pasta with Tuscan sausage) from the specials, and a tomato and onion salad for two. The garlic bread consisted of four minute pieces of bread (for 1 or 2?) for which we were charged £8.45, the salad came with the bread and was going to be removed with the garlic bread plate, the ravioli consisted of four pieces and the pasta dIsh was ok but nothing special. £8.50 for a medium sized glass of House wine and £13.80 for two pints of Moretti. Plus 12.5% service charge, and the bill came to £77.70. You certainly won’t be seeing me again.

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.
