Great service and atmosphere

We found this wine bar by chance and what a find. It's a bit like the chichetteri bars you find in Venice. All of the staff made us feel very welcome and explained the wines and menus in good English. You can sit at the bar or on stools around old wine barrels that have been made into tables... read more

Best lunch place so far in Verona! The employees are service minded and speaks great English. A lovely pasta and a glas of prosecco for 12€. So worth it!

We were four night in Verona with my wife and one night we chose this place to dine us. And this place wasn't disappointment! Friendly staff and easy going restaurant. We took something to eat and a bottle of their own vineyards red wine. Wine was splendid and food was perfect. Lots of people at that time dining. Outside was... More

We spent 3 nights in Verona and searched for a place that didn't look too touristy for "cena" on night 1 (definitely a challenge in historic Verona). We stumbled upon this wine bar, which on first glance didn't look as though it would be suitable for our children (aged 9 and 12). However we ventured in and we were so... More

A relaxed and enjoyable first night meal to get our 12 days in northern Italy started. A warm and hospitable staff willingly shared information about their wines (featured are those of their own winery). These are paired nicely with delicious, and typical, regional meats, cheeses, salads, and pastas. It appears one can simply walk in before 8 on a weeknight,... More

Arrived with my wife and 2 kids (teenagers) without reservations. The placed was crowded but after a short wait we were seated. Overall, the food was very good but the wine was even better. Wine was professionally served- the Amarone was AMAZING!!! Would definitely go back. The staff and service were great.

After a week here we chanced across this charming wine bar for an aperitif and found our favorite restaurant. Few tourists choose wine bars, so you are surrounded by tasteful Veronese. Of course the wines are fine and reasonable, but the food was delicious. This is a place with charm and value.

Stumbled across this place to escape the rain, ended up staying for a while longer than planned and were charmed by the atmosphere, attentive and welcoming staff with a passion for their wines and the food they served. A true gem. Highly recommended.

First night in Verona and hotel suggested this Osteria as a local bar/restaurant. A bit like a tapas bar, but much better. Very friendly service, with advice on food. We shared mozzarella and Parma ham, some pasta and then local beef stew. Real, authentic food, with some local Valpolicella and Soave. Chatted to locals and throughly enjoyed the evening, so...

Perfect place for light bites and a glass (bottle?) of wine. Wines mainly their own but good quality. Enjoyed the "il Ruffiano" Valpolicella Superiore at €22 with mixed bruschetta, and the pasta was decent. Friendly, helpful staff.
