Horrible service

Ok, so I will never go into Verdi ( on Bayview) again. Although the ambience is nice, well it's average anyway, the waiter is awful. And it's always the same guy! Lol He is rude, completely disinterested in his customers, and looks overall like he could care less. He acts bored with his cusomers, comes across like he is just going through the motions, and really he has no desire to actually deliver quality customer service. I've been in there 3 times now, and will now officially not go back. I am always friendly to wait- staff, was a waitress myself for years. This waiter barely acknowledge's you when you walk in, and subsequently throughout your entire stay there. When my friend and I wanted to pay, we placed our debit cards on the table. He blurrts out in such a crass manner, 'we don't take debit here!' That was it. No niceties, no friendliness. Our bill was $100.00. So it's not like we had a cheap bill. Not that that would warrant rude service anyway. Useless. I was there this past summer , and he acted the same way. Blase, bored, 'whatever' attitude. God, who needs it! There are SO many places to go in Toronto. I will not waste my time there ever again. Kim

Food

I visited Verdi with a friend and we had a lovely evening, the waiting staff were efficient and content with their job. We were seated and given wine lists and then given our drinks we were given bread straight away. I feel this restaurant is under estimated and popular i have many friends who eat there. Then i had a pasta and my friend a fish special for main the food was fantastic and the decoration superb. The flavours of sauce were perfect and tastefull the waiter filled my water glass frequently and we were well looked after even leaving the restaurant. I was deffinatly impressed the mood was great.

Atmosphere is very inviting once you walk in. Dim lights make is perfect for a girls night or first date. I got the pizza and my two other friends got the fettucini and chicken entree. The waiter was very knowledgable and friendly. Having ordered the chicken, the waiter informed us that it would take over 20 minutes. The pizza and fettucini were delightful however the chicken was still raw in the middle. Considering the wait, the chicken should have been cooked properly. Based on our experience, I will not visit this restaurant again.

We loved it! I had some friends coming to town and we were in the mood for something Italian. I found Verdi online and it was a memorable experience. A group of us had the gourmet pizza that came out of a wooden oven. Verdi was a hit! Great server. He took really good care of us and it was a great atmosphere.

Went in with a group of four for the first time on a Friday night - not a pretentious place at all. Food was great, service was above average- the waiters were older and very knowledgeable of the wine list. Their Osso Bucco was one of the best I 've had, my wife had the grilled Shrimp and Calamari - also delicious. Dishes could've come out a little faster but understood the delay since they happened to be busy. I have seen the restaurant for many years on Bayview but never had the chance to go in. Will definitely try them once again.

Dirty Owner

I have encountered being there once. After walking in, sitting down and seeing the owner without any care walk right by us. We don't care much for hoop -- la but we decided to leave. The ambiance is a disaster, the facade is ugly and makes Bayview ugly. If this is true that the owner also doesn't pay his staff....well, this person needs to be reported. I will NEVER eat at that establishment ever.

Absoultley the WORST resturant ever!!

The food was awful, and the service was the worstt ever!! When we walked in it took 10 minutes for a waiter to serve us and then when we were seated it took another 10 min for them to attend us. But when the food finally came it was worst then anything i have ever tasted. It was oily, salty, and absolutely taste less. Never in my life have i been to such an awful place. The waiters were rude, the resturant was unappealing and the food was repulsive. I will never ever step foot in that horrible place again!

An utter disappointment. Food was average but...

An utter disappointment. Food was average but the service was completely aweful, right from the moment we walked in. After being seated, we asked for recommendations on the menu. We were told that they would send another waiter over. When they did, he said he would be right back. I asked if he could place our appetizer order in the meantime to which he refused, saying that the kitchen was busy and he couldn't split up our order. He returned several minutes later after we had reviewed the menu and said "I'll be back in a few minutes to tell you about the specials since they might change your mind". He disappeared again for several minutes. When he came back he asked if we wanted to hear the specials. I said "yes" and he asked if I was sure because the list was long. I said "Please do." After telling us the 3 special items we placed our order. He delivered the meals in about 20 minutes. We never saw him again at our table, but he walked by several times to chat with the tables around us, never asking if we needed anything or how the food was. We later saw him reenter the restaurant from outside with his coat on. We were stunned that he had time to step out but could not be bothered to check how our meal was. In the meantime another waiter stopped by to clean our table, which was nice. This act of kindness was overshadowed when he walked by a few minutes later and belched while standing beside me. Ultimately, I mentioned to one of the other waiters that ours had disappeared and we wondered if he was coming back, which he did not--at least, not to our table. We were offered a coffee for our inconvenience, which we politely refused. The bill was delivered by another waiter as ours made himself busy arranging the napkins at the cash register. Closing remarks: its not hard to boil water and make pasta. There are plenty of other restaurants out there that do it well and provide an enjoyable night out. You should rethink your night if it includes Verdi Trattoria.

Verdi is a cosy little place with authentic Italian food. We were welcomed warmly by a waiter who's been there for ever. The food is priced reasonable and the quality is better than a lot of the so call "new fusion" or mock "tapas" places. We had a sauteed mushroom with goat cheese on toast, the toast was crusty and soft inside, the mushroom was tasted great. The mixed fried seafood composted of scallop (huge), calamari , salmon, a white fish and tiger prawn, good value. The grilled calamari was also grilled to perfection although a little small in portion for $14.-. The mushroom risotto tasted great too but not al dente. Wine list was priced also reasonably, but lacked luster and vintage was not listed. It is a neighbourhood gem, if you want a cosy dinner.

I frequent this neighbourhood restaurant. The food and service is good. Howvere last time the Caesar salad had twice the amount of dressing necessary. Also, the owner's mom should smile once in a while at the customers if she is going to sit in the back and watch.

Verdi is in desperate need of a significant makeover. Food was ok, service a bit rough around the edges - not impolite but rather unpolished. Menu and decor feel very dated, and to compete, needs a fundamental re-engineering - including front of house staff.

This was our first visit to Verdi and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The pear and Gorgonzola salad was an excellent starter with a light refreshing dressing, while the shrimp pasta had a lovely lemon and green onion sauce. My partner's house salad was good but the smoked salmon, caper and onion pizza lacked some of the expected flavour. Service was reasonable, and the owner very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely be back soon to this warm and inviting restaurant.

While my steak was well cooked, my wife's pizza was soggy in the middle as it wasn't baked fully with the underside of the dough still white. We were actually surprised at this since the restaurant appeared to be renowned for its pizza.

It was our 19th anniversary. They had no champagne or sparkling wine. Bread was stale. Ceasars (drink) not good - too much worchestershire I think. Main dishes were pretty good. Dessert was ok - we prefer creme brulee warm though no cold. The mother of a person who worked there was sitting staring at the restaurant the whole time - seemed odd. Will not go back. If you go for just dinner and a glass of wine might be ok? Didn't acknowledge our anniversary in any way.

My fiancé and I dined at Verdi for the first time last night and it was WONDERFUL. We are looking for a venue to hold our Rehearsal Dinner and we had high hopes for this restaurant. The staff were professional, courteous and attentive. The food was absolutely delicious. Unfortunately, due to the age of the building, the washrooms are located down a long flight of stairs which many of guests will not be able to navigate. We recommend Verdi strongly!
