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.

Excellent reception as we were unavoidably late owing to traffic conditions. Made very welcome. Good menu plus daily specials. There were so many things we wanted to eat that we will have to go back soon!
Food was well cooked and beautifully presented. Highly recommended

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!

My wife and I were given a choice of table and sat in a cosy corner of the restaurant. The Waitress quickly took our order and we received our drinks promptly. The choice of menu was good and our pasta dishes were delicious. The portion sizes were ample too. The staff were polite, efficient and friendly. The ambience of the restaurant was, in our opinion, lovely . Overall a very good experience. Would definitely re-visit.

We went with four adults and four children before heading to Kew Gardens and had a great time. The food was excellent, as was the service. It is a good choice in an area where the food options are limited.

We had a delicious meal. We were running late & I called ahead and they made no issue and held the table. The ravioli was excellent and risotto really good. It was quite noisy but it was very busy. Service was quick & polite. Nice, & clean toilets too.

Suburban Italian fare and amateur service at Belgravia/Knightsbridge/Chelsea prices. Expresso and ristretto watery with thin-to-non-existent crema. Nothing to recommend. Better avoided.

First time at Q Verde. The experience was an exceptional one. From the greeting though to the complimentary Limoncello. The food was genuinely Italian, the garlic bread and Bruschetta, set a high standard - which was met and exceeded by the next two courses. The venue is small, but that adds to the homely nature of the venue. Two birthday celebrations on the night we were there only added to the welcome

Q Verde is at the top of our list for a repeat visit.

Although my squid starter was tasty, my main course of pasta was heavy and not as full of flavour as it could have been. I used to come here regularly and thought the food was excellent but probably wouldn’t rush back after this week’s meal.

Typical small Italian restaurant.

Food was ok but not outstanding. Portions were small.

Wine list was expensive.

Very friendly staff.

12.5% service charge seemed steep!

Won't be going back.

Q Verde is one of my local restaurants but unfortunately completely failed me this time. Ok the food was nice but the service was really bad. The waitress by accident knocked our bottle of red over, which luckily didn't get on my clothes but we probably lost a glass of red. She was very apologetic but she completely missed my comment when I said "so you are bringing a new bottle of red then". Didn't get a new bottle but also nothing else was offered as a small compensation - no dessert on the house - no discount on the bill. I should have said something more but was just really disappointed that this was not a natural thing for the restaurant to make a small compensation for their mistake. Not feeling like going back anytime soon.
