We eat at Antica Torretta for our anniversary. The restaurant is small (not chaotic) and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Service was excellent. The food was great, excellent quality, presentation and taste, a real mind-blowing experience. They also have an excellent choice of quality Italian wines.

We were in Verona for a couple of days between Lake Como and Venice. Friends suggested we eat at Antica Torretta. When we checked into our Hotel......the Due Torri, the lady at the front desk also suggested the same place.
What a find!!!!!! We went our first night, had the tempura style zucchini flower with Buratta cheese as a starter to share, and then two pastas... the gnocchi with truffles and the tortellini. A beautiful suggested bottle of Red wine topped off everything.
We travel a lot and eat out way too much, but we were just so impressed with the evening that we booked for the next one too.
Again, WOW!
A beautiful bottle of wine, again the gnocchi to share because we would have kicked ourselves if we didn’t have it again, and then a couple of shared appetizers...especially the anchovies......a lovely simple dessert, and we were done again.
If you are in the old part of the city of Verona, eat here! Ask for MARCO to guide you through the menu. He understands poor Italian and better English....you won’t go wrong. This place is out of the bustle of the Center of the city, but everything is only a few blocks away. You will eat wonderfully prepared food with excellent service. It’s what made a trip to Verona worthwhile.

In a quiet(ish) square a couple of streets away from the popular venues makes this an ideal location for a special dinner, the outdoor option available in the piazza just added to the occasion. As this is a well known dining venue a reservation is recommended, available via their website. Our welcome was warm and friendly and the table very well presented (the tables are not too close). Our menu choices were excellent as was the wine. The wine list is very good, sensibly priced (for the venue) but not hugely extensive, nevertheless something for most budgets. Will have no problem in returning!

What a beautiful lunch - we spent over two hours grazing through three courses and a wonderful bottle of wine.

A great way to spend the early afternoon - nice to escape the scorching sun for a little while.

We had booked in advance and a good job as, whilst we the first to be seated, the place was soon packed.

The service was excellent - attentive without being overbearing.

The food was all superb - best of our choices were the oysters for starters, scallops for first course and rack of lamb for second course.

Lovely setting in a nice Piazza - what is not to like!

Wonderful.
