Good place!

No expectations with this 1-starred restaurant, but this night it was well-deserved. Just located outside old town near Pietra bridge. Inside it is narrow, like a doll-house, so sit outside if the weather admits. Started with Prosecco on the house. Really good rustic venetian good, good prices and... read more

finding a Michelin starred restaurant in Verona was a challenge but we found this one and were not disappointed. The atmosphere, service and food are all very unique and pleasing - well worth the visit - book in advance!

No expectations with this 1-starred restaurant, but this night it was well-deserved. Just located outside old town near Pietra bridge. Inside it is narrow, like a doll-house, so sit outside if the weather admits. Started with Prosecco on the house. Really good rustic venetian good, good prices and well-sorted winelist. Recommend the raviolo and the braised beef venetian style.

We arrived with high expectations. Decor was lovely. Wine list was excellent. Prosecco brought on the house. Had a very good truffle ravioli starter and one slightly over complicated venison starter, which was OK. Mains arrived, again an excellent guinea fowl dish. Our other main was a flavourless bit of wild boar with sticky, over reduced sauce and a hard,... More

I was very excited about going to La Fontanina so the chance to be disappointed was quite high. But I absolutely loved the place. The food was amazing (my pasta with black truffles was small - started size - but to die for). The wine list was unbelievably long - a very important point for my boyfriend so he was... More

Top night was had here. Very good food, long and excellent wine list, and slightly bonkers surroundings ( a mixture of Aladin's cave and a wine cellar). Pricier than a trattoria, but food was so good that it was worth it. Very friendly and informative staff too

This is not your average 'fine-dining' establishment. It is quirky (borderline weird) and needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. The service is not warm and friendly, but it is efficient. The wine glasses and bulky and colourful - something to get used to! The food, however, was great, and that is after all what makes or breaks... More

I was in Verona for a business trip and we didn't know where to go for dinner. It is difficult in a such of beautiful city like Verona is to decide where to go because the majority of restaurant look nice but my attention has been caught by La Fontanina "bizarre" interior design so I booked for 3. We spent... More

Beautiful restuarant, loved the atmosphere and the service was impeccable. The food was great- the truffle tortellini was the absolute stand out dish, I'm still dreaming about it!
