Great restaurant a short way off the main tourist route opposite Castelvecchio. Homemade pasta with interesting sauces and a great meat dish followed by homemade semi Freddo. Staff are really friendly too. Returned for second visit and given complimentary liqueur.

Verona is full of tourists and numerous restaurant are catering for them. Not this place! Full of couleur locale, full of locals, a menu cart full of authentic local dishes. We had a delightful risotto and soufflé desert. Perfect, nothing to be desired!

Nice restaurant, just step away from the center. I reccommend you make a reservation. Friedly staff and fair prices. We tried rabbit pappardelle and bigoli with horse meat, both very tasty.
