We ate here because it is handy for where we were staying and it had been closed on our previous visit to Verona. Started not too well when they tried to put us inside on a hot night despite two empty tables outside. Inside is pretty and has air con, but terrible musak. We ordered the fish tasting menu and...

We took friends to the Fontanina ten years after our first visit and were delighted to have just as enjoyable an evening as the first. Other friends, to whom we have recommended this restaurant a place to spend an evening between operas, have reported excellent experiences but it's not a place to visit if you need to be at the...

Experience was rushed... Food was okay. I would not recommend this place. We like great food and excellent service. This place was very cute but we felt rushed and oversold on mediocre food. We ate at much more authentic and delicious restaurants in Verona. Avoid this restaurant and stay in the other side of the bridge. 180 EU for crap!

Great restaurant with quirky furnishings - feels like a wonderful junk shop. Interesting twists on Italian cuisine, some with cryptic names. Expensive, but memorable and therefore good value overall.

Following reading some bad reviews we hesitantly booked a table in La Fontanina, but it didn't disappoint. We had a stunning 4 course meal, every dish of which was remarkable. It was expensive, but I would eat there again on a return to Verona.

My colleagues and I had dinner last week and I must say we all experienced behaviour of owners that hit a new low. We were served a very expensive wine that was clearly corked (and we were sure as we represent these wines in our home market). Ownership was insistent the wine was good when we knew it was bad....

One of the best restaurants which I have ever eaten in. Amazing food, wonderful atmosphere in quirky surroundings and charming staff. Main courses of this quality at 25 Euros have to be the greatest bargain in a Michelin starred restaurant.

It is one of the best, if not the best restaurant I ever had the pleasure to eat! Great atmosphere, food and superb wine, the perfect way to end the our day in Verona.

Michelin starred restaurant in Verona. Quirky, fabulous interior, outstanding food. Went there for a celebration dinner. Dined with friends and also our 3 year old - nobody batted an eyelid. Great service. There was another very well behaved child (of around 10 years) dining also. I love that about Italian restaurants!
