It was around 5.30pm when we were there and it took us a while to get a table - not because the restaurant is full per se, but because the waiters took quite long to discuss if they could seat us (they told us they would be having a huge reservation for dinner and told us we should leave by 6pm). We agreed but still nobody seated us down until about 15 minutes later. Definitely a boo.
After we were seated, we headed to the counter to place our order. Four of us shared a Pizza Rustica
($15), and Spaghetti Marinara
($18). All of us loved the food in Casa Verde, might be caused as we were starving, but we definitely agreed that the food was not bad at all.
The Pizza Rustica
consisted of bacon, asparagus, and egg in a tomato sauce. I loved the combination of bacon and asparagus, but thought there should be at least two eggs in the pizza as after slicing, each of the slices barely had enough eggs on.
My favorite of all three pasta was the Spaghetti Marinara
. This dish consisted of seafood in a marinara sauce (not sure why they did not name the dish Spaghetti Frutti di Mare instead). There are shrimp, squid, and crab in a garlic, olive oil, parsley, and marinara sauce. The sauce somewhat resembles the sauce for Singapore Chili Crab. This is a definite must order if you come for the pasta.
My next favorite was the Spaghetti Bolognese
. This might look like a typical bolognese - well it IS a typical bolognese, but with extra cheesiness in the sauce. Yum yum. Wouldn't mind eating this as my comfort food.
Overall, we were pleased with the food at Casa Verde. Please bear in mind that if you are looking for that perfect true blue Italian pasta and pizza, Casa Verde might not satisfy your tastebud. But, if you are looking for a cozy, laid back, al fresco style restaurant to just relax and blend in with the nature, Casa Verde is definitely one of the top choices for you. The pasta and pizza tasted very homey and were delicious.
