“Pleasant Surprise!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

We stopped here for lunch. We had no prior knowledge of the restaurant. At first I thought the portions rather small for the price, but they were very tasty. We ate outside and the atmosphere was lovely. I have grown accustomed to the sticker shock of European food and thought this was worth the money. We had 1 first course, 2 2nd courses and 1 entree with a bottle of wine and it came to 89 Euro. Our waiter was helpful and polite.

“Remains outstanding...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

We've been here before. We returned to Verona with friends who had not been before and we suggested coming here for dinner.

It is simply outstanding: firstly for the first time we ate inside due to the weather, and it's a very attractive venue. The octopus starter was the very best I have tasted absolutely anywhere - even one of our party who would not normally touch it agreed that it was juicy, tender and tasty.

The catch of the day - sea bass - was done mediterranean style with cherty tomatoes, olives, peppers and slices of roast potato. Excellent, cooked perfectly and fish with beautifully seared edible skin.

The steak in Amarone sauce was tender and delicious. Deserts faultless - chocolate fondant just right, and creme brûlée served with a flame at the table to crisp the top.

The wines are also first class. We tried the local ones - a fruity and golden Soave, and a full-bodied, firm and heady Amarone. Good list, amazing cellars below the restaurant, to which we were treated a tour by the very helpful and knowledgeable Luca.

Run by a comprehensively charming family team, moderately priced (certainly for the outstanding food) and once again, we will return.

“A well kept secret”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

We saw this in Lonely Planet and it sounded great. We wouldn't have found it otherwise but we are so glad we did. We had a 6 course meal including wine and lobster for less than €65 inc tip. The food was fantastic, Italian cooking at its best. Lemoncello to finish and we were there all night. A must when staying in Verona, it's also a specialist wine restaurant

“A Great Find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

My wife and I came upon this Ristorante quite by accident when walking to the Hotel. We liked the look of the menu in the window and decided to "give it a go". What a very pleasant surprise. Excellent atmosphere, excellent and attentive staff and "out-of-this-world food" Probably one of the best meals we have had in Italy. And that just says it all!!!
