Love this place. Tucked away downstairs, it has great atmosphere and an amazing menu! The food is always fantastic. Good value. Good range of beers and wines too. Can get a little noisey if busy - which is always is especially in the evenings!

Delicious food (I throughly recommend the prawn pizza to those who are inclined towards such a dish. It was utterly incredible!), great dining atmosphere for a casual social get together. Fair prices and friendly staff. A satisfactory wait time on our meals too. Very happy with the experience on the whole.

If you want good food at reasonable prices in a relaxed friendly atmosphere in the CBD Brisbane then go to Verve. An underground cafe/bistro on Edward St. The belly pork was sublime, the best I have ever tasted, I asked to see the chef who had cooked this amazing dish to compliment him. I asked what how did you make... More

I always try to get to Verve when I'm in Brisbane. There are 2 full pages of ciders plus guests on tap, all rated by sweetness so you have some idea of what you're getting. The waitstaff are very helpful if you can't decide and are super lovely. I always feel welcome even when I eat there solo. I'm usually... More

Went here for lunch on Friday with work colleagues, several are vegetarian so Verve appeals to them. I had a spicy bacon Pizza, a tad spicy for me, wait staff were friendly and efficient. Bottled water to table on arrival, drinks came quickly and food arrived in time to get back to work just on the hour. Food is always... More

Vongole is an Italian dish made with clams not tuna ! How could they - it was vile. Never mind it was not worth troubling the staff with any concerns - they couldn't have cared less - they didn't even know what was on their menu unless it was pointed out to them.

I dropped in with friends on Thursday for lunch. From the moment we walked in the staff were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. They were quick to point out the specials boasting the chef had produced a great list of delights and "has nailed each one of them"!! Our meals arrived together and no one was left... More

Fantastic Italian restaurant with a large menu full of flavour and variety. Service was fantastic, often checking up on our meals and offering another drink. All 3 dishes we ordered were so good we had to share. Top 5 Italian restaurants I've experienced, will visit often.
