Verve Restaurant @ Edward Street, Brisbane

There's something cool about this place which is situated in the basement of the Metro Arts building. Maybe it is just the whole experience of walking into a dimly lit underground area which feels cold and cool at the same time. Oh did I say cool again?


Well maybe it isn't that cool but it is cooling.


The Wife and I were feeling generous that day so we decided we will pick a nicer place for lunch instead of trying to find a place that will get me a meal for under $10. 


Verve which is just opposite her office was an easy option.


The menu is a simple assortment of pasta and pizza; not exactly the most authentic Italian stuff but probably more Australian/American/Modern Italian if you know what I mean.

A special of the day was a cream based prawn pasta with sun dried tomatoes. I love pasta that is cooked al-dente and this was probably a minute too long in boiling water. Else, this tasted pretty good.

I think this was a seafood pizza but honestly I think for the same price, you can get a better one at Pizza Capers. 

Overall, a decent place for a pasta or pizza and a beer but nothing that was really shining. Meals are almost AUD20 per person so not cheap for an everyday lunch unless you earn a bucket load of money.

Address and contact details:


Verve Restaurant Bar Cider House on Urbanspoon

Verdict: 3 stars out of 5 stars. If there's consolation, I reckon it should be a couple of degrees cooler than the blistering sun we have been getting in the last week and in the upcoming weeks.
