We chose to dine here after checking out other reviews for local restaurants. We arrived a little before start of service but were welcomed in to a table at the rear of this quaint restaurant. Cannot complain about any of our choices. Baccalá alla Vincentina, Maccheroni a cacio e pepe, then we decided to have an antipasto. Back to front... More

A recommendation from our BnB hostess directed us a block away from where we were staying on Via Rigaste San Zeno to this wonderful local osteria tucked away on a small side street of the same name. The proprietor ushered us inside and into the care of a gracious hostess who literally brought the tripod-mounted menu to our table and... More

Having booked a reservation, we were first to arrive at 19-30 and were given beaming smiles from 2 waitresses and a colleague dressed in his chef's gear but he remained front-of-house. Not sure of his role. The décor was very unusual, fairly contemporary but dark colour schemes. We were able to choose our preferred table. All the tables were well... More

I went in a group of three to this restaurant based on its Trip Advisor reviews, and we weren't disappointed! Our waitress was very patient explaining the dinner choices to us in English (kindly translating from the menu board) and the food was amazing - fresh, local ingredients and fantastic flavours. The desserts especially (tiramisu and berry cheesecake) were stunning,... More

Having read reviews expected better. Most expensive meal we had in Verona and the worst. Boring and badly cooked.

Why? Because only one person in the last two years has failed to give this small restaurant in the middle of nowhere five stars and the more people like me who praise it then the higher it rates and the less of a secret it becomes. First of all you have to find the place because there's little risk of... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our b & b. We ended up going there on two nights during our stay in Verona. Absolutely delightful food, lovely wine and really friendly staff. We will be returning to Verona next year and are already looking forward to going back to this place.

Slightly off the beaten track however still only 10 mins from the Arena and 2-3 mins from Castelvecchio. You visit here wont be for the view but for the tremendous food. The selection is wide, mainly fish, and traditional charmingly described to you by one of the staff who fortunately for us spoke English and had the patience to spend... More
