About Us

about us

Known in Italy as ‘the green,’ Il Verde is King Street’s modern Italian dining destination. Our flavours come from fresh and sustainable (or green) ingredients – something the team at Il Verde takes strongly to heart.

Inventive flavours meet European tradition at this Brisbane restaurant. With space for 90 diners between the indoor dining room and outdoor lounge, a menu of hearty pastas and specialty wood-fired pizzas have been crafted to suit diners of every age.

Il Verde’s owners are no strangers to wholesome Italian dining. Trio Dom Barakat, Simon Barakat, and Ibrahim Haddid (known as Bob) boast a combined 40 years of experience in the industry. The Barakat family begin their experience at Il Verde after long-running success at Gino’s, one of Brisbane’s most beloved Italian spots.
