We went to this restaurant for dinner before attending the opera at the Arena. We explored restaurants closer to the Arena, but they seemed a bit too touristy. This restaurant was recommended by our host, who lives in Verona. This restaurant is a fine dining establishment with an atmosphere of understated elegance. The restaurant is on the Piazza delle Erbe... More

Great location set back just off a busy square. Very friendly staff and good service. As a coeliac dining out can be difficult but the waiter was very knowledgable and offered alternatives and adaptations to the choices on the menu. Great food and attention to detail with it including wonderful bread (and gluten free alternative!) and treats with coffee. Would... More

Escape from the crowds in Piazza delle Erbe and dine in a quiet, secluded courtyard. Not cheap, but good food and service. Recommended.

Wonderful restaurant, terrific food, had the steak tartare, and fish. Family birthday celebration, staff was wonderful and attentive. Highly recommended for the food and atmosphere. Ask for a quick tour of the wine cellar, dates back to 25 BC. We enjoyed the dinner and restaurant very much. Would definitely go back.

This restaurant is in the courtyard of the grand Palazzo Maffei at the end of the Piazza Erbe, so very central - but not overrun by tourists. It was open on a Monday evening when a lot of restaurants are closed, so I was able to enjoy a birthday dinner there (it was the Ferragosto public holiday, so check that... More

Located in a courtyard in front of the main piazza Piazza delle Erbe in the heart of Verona is this fantastic restaurant. Food and Service is first class, ambience great and location unbeatable.

I have visited Maffei several times a year for the last 12 years. Location is remarkable and food excellent. Service has always been friendly and welcoming until this year. Standard of service was appalling and when pointed out the waiters they became rude and hostile. I then took this up with the Manager who was disinterested. Visit date August 14.... More

This restaurant met all my expectations. The venison starter looked and tasted delicious and the beef cheek in amarone melted in the mouth. We would highly recommend for a special meal out.

Nicely located in the hart of Verona, this restaurant has everything! Excellent service, great wine and fantastic food. I can recommend the rabbit ragout as a primi and the octopus with buffola Mozzarella and bazil cream as secondi. Maybe a bit of a strange combo, but went extremely well with the Soave Contra Alvarenza. Enjoy!

Fine dining, Italian style. Truffle, artichoke, ricotta, handmade pasta, well chosen house wines (good wine at a reasonable by the glass price) attentive but discrete service, grand historic location. Put it all together, a lovely evening.

With its four rooms and cellar, the restaurant is the ideal setting for business dinner, weddings, and those special occasions where the personal touch and meticulous elegance are essential. For that extra special moment in your life, the Romeo and Juliet table is delightfully ensconced amid the Roman remains.
