Terrible service, i shall not return. I would not have tipped but 12.5% tip was automatically added to the bill on a table of 3. I would have refused to pay but was entertaining business clients and did not want to cause a scene.
Specifically, rude, unattentive staff, menu incorrect and just generally low level of service.

Not as nice as usual, waiter was a bit lost and had to ask to his manager about anything we wanted, half the wine list was not available.
But worst remains the toilet smell if you sit under the counter at the end...
It was already there last time (3months ago), but we thought issues happen. It will be fixed.
The fact that it has not is bad! They just don’t care.
Used to love the place, but really not sure if what to think.

The food was very good but service slow and unfriendly. This may be slightly unfair as I always compare Italian restaurants in the Wapping/ Stepney / Whitechapel area to il bordello but I would recommend il bordello - for the food and efficiency/friendliness of service - over Verdis. The food was very good however.

Verdi's is nice without having a wow factor.. I thought the carbonara portion size was small for a main course which is strange for an Italian as I usually walk away struggling to breathe.. the pizza my friend ordered was very nice though the name escapes me. all in all not bad but not in a rush to go back.

poor service - our waitress didn't even know the wines on the wine list. The food was worse though - pizzas were all soggy in the middle.

It used to be my favourite restaurant, that's why I chose it for my birthday dinner, unfortunately it wasn't a good choice this time. Even if the food is delicious, the portions are extremely small - too small for the amount of money you will pay for it. Service... well, we felt like the waiters are bit lost, having just a few tables to serve we were waiting quite long to get their attention. I'm really sorry to say, but I'm really disappointed this time.

We’ve lived locally for years and kept threatening to visit Verdi’s. It’s a classic Italian restaurant with family at its heart. The food, wine and service were great.

It is always a pleasure to dine here. Even when busy and full, as it was on Friday, the service is good, and friendly. The food is delicious. Freshly made, it is worth the wait. A real gem, it's worth a trip to the east end for a meal here. Only a very short walk from Stepney Green tube station.

A very nice traditional Italian restaurant that feels modern without being trendy. Food is good, and service polite and understated. Nice mix of customers, some locals, some from the University, some tourists and passers-by.

This is my fourth time at Verdi’s and I have enjoyed it each time. The service is very good and the staff are friendly. My food was excellent. My guest had a problem with her main course which was dealt with very well by the manager. I would use Verdi’s again it’s a friendly place with a nice atmosphere and prices reasonably.

Superb food - chef really knows what they're doing with flavours. Lovely summery menu.
Could do with kids options. Smaller pizza/pasta plates and ice cream.
We were pretty much the only customers until 7pm when it began to get busier.

A very friendly, warm and professional welcome. Attentive without being intrusive. Delightful Italian regional home cooking. There is an in-house pizza oven, so if you order a pizza, it will be as fresh as they can be. A great selection to choose from from on a seasonal menu. I am happy to return over and over. It is worth a tube ride to Stepney Green for sure! Enjoy!

I go regularly and love the food and team at Verdi’s.
The menu has recently changed and a little for the worse in my opinion, but it was still highly enjoyable and great value.

Certainly coming back.
