It’s hidden in a back street and you may have to fend off the dust bins on your way there even thought it’s in the beautiful city of Verona. It’s a traditional osteria (bistro for the Francophile), serving typical regional food from Veneto – the region where Verona is located in north east Italy. You can for example get a meat stew with amarone, or pasta with an abundance of porcini (and other) mushrooms, or a risotto made with local cheese and rosemary. A bit rustic, country-style, but still a certain elegance, and very friendly service even when very busy.
A pleasant restaurant, mid-priced food, and far from the local American province called Piazza delle Erbe.
The wine list is also good, featuring many Valpolicellas and Amarone in various vintages.
Far from the American province at Piazza delle Erbe, but only a short walk away.
