Italian

Via Verdi Cucina Italiana is headed by Fabrizio and Nicola Carro, who grew up in Northern Italy. They have used their cooking talent at the Trump SoHo hotel, the Martha Stewart show, the Today show and Rocco’s Dinner Party. Stop by the Social Bar for a drink after work or meet a group of friends and sit at a private table or at the bar while enjoying signature cocktails and some bar bites. Via Verdi also offers an outdoor patio that is open year round. The green garden space is set up for a lovely weekend brunch or to accommodate a large group for dinner. It is the perfect place to eat al fresco.

Enjoy authentic Italian food with a partner seated in the Indoor Boutique. Along with homemade pasta, perfectly paired wine and lowered lighting, the secluded wine cave creates the perfect romantic atmosphere for an unforgettable dinner.

This was our first time at Via Verdi Cucina Italiana and we were very pleased. We were seated right away upon arrival and the waiter was very pleasant and attentive. The courses were served at very relaxed intervals so we could enjoy them at a relaxed pace. The food was very good. I had the Vitello Tonnato and my wife had the Calimari for appetizers. Both were excellent. I had the Cacio E Pepe for my main course and it was one of the best I have had. My wife requested Spaghetti with pesto, which was not on the menu, and the Chef graciously prepared it for her and it was also excellent. We will definitely be returning when we come back to Miami.

Unfortunately we reserved on the evening that the employees were having their own Halloween Party and they were much more interested in each other than their guests. The loud traffic from Biscayne Blvd and the loud DJ music made it impossible to carry on a conversation. This is our fifth or sixth visit and the food is consistently good, but the service was so lacking, that this may have been our last visit. One server (Peter Pan) had NO idea what he was doing and I fault the owners for not training properly.

I am generally not generous with 5 star ratings. This little gem gets them all on point. Value, food, service, ambiance and comfort level. First time there will not be my last. Neighborhood feel, authentic yet unpretentious, great happy hour, indoor/outdoor seating and parking a breeze. Wish every eating establishment could be so simply good and enjoyable. Salute' to Via Verdi for a job well done.

I had dinner here on a week day. Super casual place. I had octopus n shrimp risotto. Both very well done.

Service good ok. My server was so casual. Too casual at the point that he did not mark the table for a second course or came over to ask how the food came out either.

See yall soon.

It was a nice experience. We were seated immediately outside. But the service was a little bit slow, I believe that they were short on staff that day. Took a long time to receive our drinks. The food was ok, we ordered the polpettine as an appetizer, the butter ravioli and a pizza ( very good but I would prefer that the ingredients would come already together instead of me "assemble" it. The parking was easy and the environment was nice.

Wow, the food was excellent! It was a slow start we had to wait for our drinks and we really questioned the service. But, once the food came out we were definitely impressed. Kudos, to the owners they more than made up for the snafu. We will definitely be back. The pasta was exceptional. This is a gem in MiMo. GO!!

Beautiful place, we stayed inside in the little room. Very cozy, and the food is authentic Italian, so don't come here for Alfredo Sauce. Amazing value at lunch, but even at dinner prices are very reasonable.
One of the best Italian places in Miami, great value also for wines.

One of my favorite places.

Service was sporadic. We were warmly received but the service went downhill as the night progressed. Waiter was not engaged and had to be called for entree order, after dinner espresso and the bill. Food was okay. I will not go back.

It was happy our Monday so selected drinks and cocktails were 6$ and pasta dishes were half price.
However the preparation and delivery of the cocktails was still excellent, as was the food and the rest of service.

Warm, friendly, attentive service, great, delicious, food, comfortable well spaced tables, and moderate prices; WHAT COULD BE BETTER.

I go often, and I will continue to do so.

There is no better dining package on the Upper East Side of Miami.

Via Verde hits all the bases - this was home run.

Thank you all!

I think this restaurant ,that I knew well , has a new management ...the food is way different and has lost the sophistication and the italian touch it had ...Now, basic italian food ...much cheaper for sure ...but with zero interest not to mention the use of frozen tuna for the grilled tuna dish ...
Service ...very bad . Waiters do not know who is eating what when the dishes are served ...appetizer forgotten and brought with the main course ...
The bar seems to be the only vestige left form Via Verdi previous version ....

So when everything is so bad, the street noise becomes overwhelming...
But good luck . There is always a way to fix things .
