Food, service and ambience were all superior. I had the codfish appetizer that was gorgeous. My husband was equally pleased with his beef tartare. For a main course he had the turbot with olive "crust" which I sampled and liked even more than my own dish, the scampi. We were also treated to the ricotta gnocchi--which the waiter brought complimentary. It was incredible. If I return to Verona I will be getting that gnocchi. We had the Corte Canella Valpolichella--is it too over the top to call that a life-changing moment? OMG. My new favorite wine.

Small cozy restaurant with an authentic Italian atmosphere and delicious food. We were here in June so we sat outdoors and the candle lit tables together with the stone walls and the view of the cobblestone street and the antique homes was just excellent atmosphere. The service was excellent. The beef fillet superb, the wine list to our taste. One of my favorite recommendations in all of Italy. Busy and small so make a reservation in advance.

We eat at this restaurant annually when we visit thr Roman Teatro and the food is always excellent. They serve a tasty prosecco while you peruse the menu.There were seven of us and all our dishes were all outstanding-- both primi pasta with lobster and artichokes and gnocci with black truffles, antipasti swordfish tartare, pate de frois gras served with pommegranite seeds and dried apple were delicious. The secondi all were amazing--Chateaubriand with black truffles, veal cheeks with brocccoli and large scampi. We enjoyed a white Soave from the area. We were served a treat at the end of our meal, sorbet with prosecco and orange peel and strwberry garnish. The service was attentive and friendly. We enjoyed watching the chefs concentrate and prepare the food through glass partitions. The atmosphere is warm with painted umbre sponged walls and gilt mirrors and little oil lamps on each table. Donot miss the chance to dine here!

A very small restaurant with an open kitchen serves fantastic food and has a great wine list. Everything we had was fresh, well prepared and presented. Fresh crudo, pasta with lobster and chateaubriand with black truffles were good choices

We were only able to stay one night in Verona so this was our only dinner spot while we were there ... and we are so glad that we were sent to this restaurant by our hotel's concierge. We found the atmosphere to be very romantic and the food was excellent ... from appetizer through dessert. We plan to go back to Verona and we certainly plan to visit Antica Torretta again the next time we are there.
