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.

our first trip was for my partners 38th birthday. he's a huge foodie and loves Italian cuisine. no, i wasn't going to fly him to italy just for the food this year so i did my research for a down to earth, authentic restaurant. we were VERY impressed with the starters and main pasta dishes. we'll be back there for sure. the staff were excellent and the manager (older gentleman) was super cute and attentive making us laugh at every opportunity. meal was finished off with a free shot of limoncello which is always the 'cherry on top' of an authentic italian dining experience. thanks team for making my partners birthday super special.

The food is authentically Italian and it's a nice friendly little place. The major issue with Q verde is the owner/head waiter who is loud and over friendly. if this is your thing you won't mind but i'd prefer to be left alone to enjoy my evening without feeling invaded.

Lovely small traditional family run restaurant visited after a day out at Kew Gardens. The staff were absolutely lovely- so friendly and polite and the food delicious. Only sorry it's so far from where we live (north west London) so unlikely to visit again although would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
One negative is that we were stung for nearly £16.00 for two glasses of prosecco cheerily recommended when we first sat down - an extortionate charge for a fairly ordinary drink. As it was a birthday celebration it seemed like a good idea but it is wrong to promote it without pointing out the cost. It's possible to buy a fairly good bottle of prosecco for that sort of money. We were offered a shot of limoncello after the meal though!
