Never had Octopus legs presented in this way before, a bit like pork sausages! Lovely setting in the courtyard of Palazzo Maffei off the west end of Piazza Erbe. However, my wife found herself trying to avoid a puddle under the table. Really good food though and excellent service. A little expensive though.

Nice cool courtyard off the Piazza Erbe. Complimentary prosecco. My daughter and I shared a porcini risotto to start, my wife had Bresaola which was enormous for a starter. I had lamb chops with Rosemary potatoes which were OK but not the tastiest, My daughter had. Cesar salad, which was also enormous, and had a thick anchovy sauce. Wife had... More

We were recommended the restaurant from our hotel. Lovely place, great atmosphere and service. Both my husband and I went for a 4 course meat tasting menu, all 4 courses outstanding. (Carpaccio, pasta w/rabbit, lamb chops and tiramisu). Solid portions! Service was quick and good. Restaurant were full so seemed like a very popular place. Would definitely reccommend the place...

We stumbled across this restaurant and we were amazed by the beauty of the restaurant. On arrival we were given complimentary prosecco and bread. The main course was rich but enjoyable. I went for the veal with cranberry reduction, which was lovely. However a bit too much fat on the veal for my liking. My partner had the beef which... More

Tried this one night as recommended on Trip Advisor and guide book. Excellent food in a great setting. Staff friendly and attentive without being overly so. I had gnocchi and prawns in a seafood broth which was superb followed by delicious salmon. My husband had the black spaghetti and some delicious beef cooked in amarone. Lovely!

We had a great lunch here, arriving as we always do at 1230 to beat the crowds for a nice glass of Prosecco. Basil risotto was excellent, as was the braised steak. Desserts were all excellent and we even got home made biscuits also. We were tempted in by the setting through the archway and were glad we made the... More

We stayed in Verona for 3 nights as part of the build up to getting married. During our stay at La Suite di Giuleta we asked the owner to suggest a top restaurant. The Maffei was one the first restaurant mentioned so I was intrigued to find the location which was on the Piazza del Erbe. After entering the restaurant... More

One of the best settings in Verona, but sadly the cooking does not match the setting. For a restaurant of this reputation some dishes were simply dreadful

The courtyard all fresco dining is truly a summer evening delight. Our second visit to both Maffei and Verona did not disappoint. The tasting menus make for an easy decision process and the balance of taste and portion make for the perfecting eating experience. Ask for wines to be served by the glass to match each course just to complete... More
