Agriturismo il Porcellino

Reviewed June 7, 2013

We were four guys doing a whirlwind tour of northern Italy in a rented car. For our Verona stop my friend booked us at il Porcellino and my first thought, as we spent 15 minutes driving along narrow roads up a mountainside was, “Dude, what the hell man, we’re not even in the city!”. Turns out it was worth it, all of us thought the place was really good.

We had a room for the four of us (double bed and bunk beds) but everything looked new and the room was really clean, it also had a small balcony. Hot water was plentiful and all of us were able to have hot showers. Since you're on the top of the mountain the view was great, at night it reminded one of my friends of the view from the Hollywood sign looking down at the lights in the plain below.

We had dinner there that night and it was like a top-end Italian restaurant -- homemade pastas, nice wines, the owner even threw in a plate of capicolla (from pigs raised on the farm) as a starter. Since there was only us and one other couple staying at the hotel I figured we would be the only ones eating at a restaurant but later that evening numerous couples showed up from the city to eat there. We ate at a table outside so the farm's dog would sit beside us with big soulful eyes hoping for capicolla too (lol).

We then went into Verona later that evening, since we had a rented car a 15 minute drive down the mountainside was really not that big of a deal.

This place is not easy to find. Make sure you have a map ready or GPS when trying to find it.

If you’re tired of staying in busy cities and looking for a place near Verona where you can relax and unwind this is definitely it.

For Location I put "average" because if you want the countryside then it's excellent but if you want to be in the heart of Verona then this isn't the place for you.

We camped at Il Porcellino for 2 nights and visited Verona and Venice during this time. A wonderful location for campers with tents or camper vans who would like some peace and quiet. The bathroom is very clean and we could easily manage washing up etc. The restaurant is also of excellent quality and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal we had there. Fulvio and his family are very easy-going and helpful - we are very impressed.

Thank you, Fulvio - we'll come again!

We stayed here for 2 nights and would highly recommend. It is quite difficult to find, but has amazing views of Verona. Fulvio, the owner was most obliging, helpful and at all times available to offer help. He also has very good English which was great as we didn't have that much Italian. The rooms are basic but very clean and excellent value for money. The a la carte menu is well worth sampling. All dishes are some derivative of pork! produced from the many pigs that he farms organically. I have never tasted pork quite like it and I don't particulaly like pork. It seems to be quite a popular restaurant venue as many people came for dinner while we were there. Verona is just a short drive away but you do need a car. Highly recommend this venue and particularly impressed with value for money.

I just came back from Verona. I had a business dealing in Verona. And this time I decided to take my wife with me. As she doesn not like a big city's noise, we got a advise from aour friends about this countryside place "Il Porcellino".
The road till there is not nice, but till you get there, you forget about the road and enjoy the view, fresh air,homeliess, nature and a warm welcoming from the owner Fulvio. The kitchen was wonderful. Meat, oil, vegetables and bread what he is growing in his garden was with excelent taste.
I would like to say thank you to Fulvio and his staff for warm welcoming and service and fpr sure, we will come back!
