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

They offer a good choice of vegetarian food AND meat. Try the ham and cheese starter. The owners care very much about the quality of food and their guests!

RETRObar has a refreshing approach to locally-sourced food and wine, as well as an ethical philosophy. They offer an amazing selection of vegan, vegetarian and meat dishes. The baked polenta and smoky goats cheese gnocchi were tried, tested and can be highly recommended. Their wine list is comprehensive and closely matches their flavours, ambience and philosophy. Situated inside a converted... More

Amazing food, the big tortellini with local cheese, butter and sage sauce is glorious! But need to agree with many other comments on the service. There is still a room for improvement.

We totally 'stumbled' into this gem while hunting for a decent place to relax and eat after a visit to the the Palazzo della Gran Guarda (to see Van Gogh/Seurat/Mondrian exhibition). We were pleasantly surprised by how cool this place was. Entered to the sound of some velvety jazz playing in the background.The staff were pleasant & helpful. Immediately liked... More

I leave reviews just when I’m particularly happy or disappointed, and this time I’m extremely satisfied! I got into Retro after a visit to the town’s dome, which is right behind, and I received a warm welcome by the owner, Viviana, who speaks great English. She’s very concerned about healthy food and offers a fantastic variety of raw juices, local... More

An unusual bistrot just beside the main cathedral where to take a break at any hour, from a slow food lunch to a tipical Italian aperitif. Our food & wine selection is inspired by semplicity: thursday-friday-saturday open for dinner, booking requested.
