Was visiting Verona with my English partner and we decided to go to the Osteria Il Ciotolo for proximity and reviews, it was indeed a great decision; the service was spot on and everyone was extremely friendly, food came out in a decent time whilst we were having a delicious antipasto with local cold cuts (I am Italian myself never...

My husband and I visited Verona in December for a mini break. On our first night we were wandering around trying to find somewhere to eat, when we stumbled upon Il Ciottolo. What a find! They were fully booked, but kindly squeezed us in. The menu is really varied and caters for vegetarians too. We were told all the pasta... More

We had an appetizer with plenty of typical cheeses and cold cuts, then we had tagliolini with sausage and pumkin. Good flavour but to many whole pumkin pieces. Then we had brasato with amarone (typical wine) and polenta. Excellent flavour despite that it didn't look very good on the plate. For dessert we had apple cake with cinnamon. It was... More

We took the plate of cheese cuts and the horse meat pasta and the lasagna al forno. Good place for a quick fix before resuming the visit of the city. Honest in what they offer and gentle treatment of the staff. Everything for less than 40 euros, two glasses of red wine included.

I ate here on the recommendation of my AirB&B host. Unlike many of the restaurants in the zona pedonale, Il Ciottolo is firmly aimed at local regulars, which means that booking is essential, even on a Sunday evening. The food is not haute cuisine but is rooted in authentic regional cooking. Service in the dining room on the ground floor... More

We spent ages Googling where to eat in Verona and eventually we chose the place that seemed to have most Italians going inside. Good decision. Even though we had no reservation and were the only tourists present, the owners made us feel welcome. It was Sunday and so we ordered the local Sunday lunch of beef tongue, sausage and bread...

I had an amazing evening enjoying truly Italian food from Veneto. It started with great service, a very clean and well-decorated place and finally finished with fantastic food and wine. I could not ask for a better place in this city. If I ever go back to this city, I'll definitely eat there again.

Came upon this restaurant whilst on a day trip to Verona. Very close to the old gates so expected it to be expensive. Not so. Traditional Bolito misto (excuse the spelling), huge portion, very good. House wine -Bardolino- excellent value at 6.50 for a half litre. Sunday lunchtime, no booking but they squeezed us in. Clearly popular with locals

On our august '16 roadtrip we visited this osteria Il Ciottolo. Upon arival we were guided to avery nice looking table. We started with a cheese and meats platter to share. Afterwards we had the Rabbit roast leg and the Rabbit ragout. My ragout was really tasty and I really enjoyed having anything other than pizza or pasta. My boyfriend... More
