La Pigna Ristorante Osteria, Verona restaurant | BKWine Pick

La Pigna is a charming traditional style Italian restaurant, just a touch more towards elegant rather than rustic. It is on a street also called La Pigna (the pine cone) in the historic city centre towards the Duomo, a “safe” distance beyond Piazza delle Erbe to avoid the worst crowds. The cooking is typically Veronese. Starters can be charcuteries, a salad, or why not a mixed plate with a bit of everything, including two types of polenta (regional!) and Gorgonzola.

You have pastas that are copious and delicious: with duck sauce, tomato and spicy sausage and other choices. Main courses (if you don’t limit yourself to starter and pasta…) are a selection of Veronese meat dishes. Starters are around 5-10 €, pastas 8-15€, main courses a bit more.

They have a good wine list with wines from all over Italy, with a focus on Veneto wines of course. We have tried an excellent refosco from Friuli Venezia Giulia, very nice fresh fruit, very good value for 15€. La Pigna is very much a family affair with La Mama in the dining room and the son in charge of the wines. He is quite a wine fanatic so you risk getting caught in all sorts of wine discussions if you start talking wine…
