This experience was just amazing.

We were seated in a courtyard which made us feel like we were in the Italian ruins enjoying an incredibly romantic dinner.

The food - wow - we started by splitting the spiral pasta, a tomato basil sauce with burrata on top - the best! The flavors just exploded in our mouths.

For our main dishes, I had the lamb chops - and my husband had the sea bass - again - beautiful presentation and the tastes - over the top great.

And our server, Brasilio, worked all the magic of the evening. He guided us through the menu, assisted us with our wine, so helpful and personable! Thank you.

We will be back!

Beautiful venue, attentive and welcoming staff, superb food. We sat in the courtyard which was a Romantic setting for our honeymoon. We both had the tasting menu which was delicious. We will be back.

Even before enjoying the menu, you start enjoying the place: an historic palace where you can eat outdoor in the courtyard in summer or inside with a romantic atmosphere. If you want to impress your partner you can book the “Giulietta e Romeo” table sourrended by historical Roman pieces.
We tasted a variety of dishes, either fish and meat. The staff is professional and kind. If you want to taste good food in an historical atmosphere in the heart of Verona, this is the place not to miss. Price, place, menu: all 5 stars.

Maffei is really a top notch restaurant. Ambiance and service are excellent without being too stuffy. Everyone with whom we interacted was incredibly attentive. We ate in the courtyard which has a great ambiance - you are sheltered from the din of Piazza Erbe but have a nice view of the comings and goings in the piazza.

Most important, the food is excellent. The pastas that we tasted were all delicious (the pappardelle in particular were masterful) and my wife and I had both had the eggplant parmigiana which was flavorful but a bit too mushy for my liking. Finally, for dessert we shared the croccante (also pictured) which was also excellent.

Highly recommended - a Michelin star worthy experience for sure. Would also recommend making reservations in the peak season (summer, especially when the Opera has a performance).

Had dinner here on our last night in Verona. Sat in the courtyard area which was lovely. The food was truly excellent and the service friendly and efficient.

It's not cheap but well worth the money.
