The food is good and the location is great just in front of the Cathedral Church. But the pleasure of being there has been a bit spoiled by the waiter that has been a bit rough. I am sure that they can do better.

Stumbled across this lovely bistro when visiting the duomo. They have gluten free options which doesn't seem too common in Verona. I had a tuna salad which was lovely and my husband had a gluten free roll with cheese and smoked ham which he enjoyed. The fresh juice was delicious too. They also cater for vegan customers.

On the one hand they offer a "craft vegan croissant - sugar free". On the other hand they served me the best horsemeat stew I've ever had! Quaint, peaceful cafe right opposite the Duomo, with quirky decor and hilariously eccentric service.

The lady who served us was not pleasant... The food was not more than ok... The prices are rather high. When I asked for an extra plate. I was told it cost 1 euro!!! I defiantly don't recommend.

Been there on two occasions visiting Verona and liked it a lot. In a charming retro interior that feel homy is always nice to have a bite of the local, fresh food or have a drink. They have vegetarian and meat options. The service is not always nice, but they warm up with a little incentive ;) Prices good for... More

While exploring Verona on a walk, we stumbled upon this charming gem next to the Piazza Duomo. We stopped to share a pita with tuna, lettuce, tomato and a digestive raw juice (ginger, lemon,soda). All fresh and enjoyed it on café tables while watching Piazza Duomo.

We had a lovely meal last night, away from the very busy, tourist-filled restaurants of the main squares. We enjoyed pasta infused with red wine and stuff with local cheese, and an excellent spicy tofu and polenta dish. They were both vegetarian, but there were plenty of meaty options as well - testament to the excellent hosts, one of whom... More

Food was OK, but we found it expensive for what it was. We really are not difficult to please, but we were quite disappointed:-(. Especially by the service - the lady who served us, was not very friendly...And attention - it wasn't mentioned (or we didn't see it) but they only accept CASH...:-(

Stumbled on this cafe by chance on a very rainy day in Verona whilst visiting the sites. Cafe is located in Piazza Duomo near to the church. Ordered two salami and cheese sandwiches and a couple of beers which came to under 20 euros. Waitress was very helpful and friendly as we speak no Italian. Only a few tables inside... More
