Our hotel recommended this restaurant as a neighborhood osteria serving typical regional food. The first night I had a beef filet, and my friend had duck. The second night we both had lamb chops. Excellent. The highlight -food wise- was dessert. Freshly poached peaches stuffed with amaretto and chocolate! A local favorite, we even asked our server for the recipe,... More

After being told that they were fully booked and would only be able to find us a table for two downstairs near a table of ten.....which we politely refused....a table was found for us at the very front of the restaurant. We proceeded to have a lovely meal accompanied by a good bottle of local red wine. Sardines with polenta... More

We stumbled upon this gem of a restaurant after being turned away from a restaurant with a similar name two blocks away. This one is the Tavern. The wait staff is exceptionally friendly, the atmosphere old world delightful and the dishes local and outstanding! I ordered the tagliatelle with asino ragu, my wife and others ordered the baccala with polenta.... More

Food was ok...the pasta was the best thing on the menu. The lamb was fatty and greasy. The wine was delicious.

My family and I are food lovers who love trying local cuisine. Our meal here was perfect. Lots of locals, friendly service, not much English but we don't mind! I recommend the sardines, the tortellini was the BEST I've ever had, and the Veronese rabbit was delicious. And then the tiramisu.... Good lord it was light, and simply beautiful. House... More

I went here with my mother because I wanted to try the polenta and the more typical veronese kitchen. We got a table in the basement and it felt very cosy. The service was excellent but the food... Well, it wasn't my favorite really but it was OK. Some guests actually left after reading the menu because they served things... More

Cosy tavern in the heart of Verona, bringing back memories of times past. Dark panelled walls, wooden beams and a huge counter loaded with cured meats and cheeses add to the ambience. Charming owners served us ‘baccalà con polenta’ and ‘bigoli con le sarde’, equally delicious, and helped choosing the right wine from their extensive cellar. Natasha, a nice lady... More

We stayed away from this restaurant because our first visit was so disappointing. Now we decided to give it another try, and, I must confess, I have to review my previous 'poor' comment. No polenta this time (I don't like it, but that of course is personal). My wife had very nice lamb chops and I had 'veal nerves with... More

We drifted in on our first night in Verona and weren't disappointed. We both had the lamb chops, with sides of potatoes and grilled vegetables and we couldn't eat it all, although we somehow forced down desserts. With drinks, a total of 66 Euros. Friendly, speedy service. Traditional Italian fare, reasonably priced.
