Osteria Le Vecete Ristorante, Verona restaurant | BKWine Pick

The restaurant Osteria le Vecete is an old-style classic Italian taverna. A touch rustic, a touch gastronomy, a touch friendly. A good mix. The restaurant is bang in the centre of Verona, between Piazza delle Erbe and Piazza Bra, but on a small side street that you will have to look for. It is a good thing that it is hidden on a small street behind the tourist sites. That’s perhaps why it has kept a genuine style and a quality cuisine.

The atmosphere is a bit like an old restaurant in the country: dark wood interior, red and white chequered napkins, rickety wooden chairs, not much space between the tables, bustling. But that also makes it feel a bit like “real” Italy and not the tourist district in Verona. They claim it is the oldest osteria in Verona… The cuisine is traditional Veronese and a bit from all over Italy. You can have some simple sandwiches or classic pasta dishes or go for the meat stews and roasts.

The restaurant also has a claim for fame for the wine list (“specialità enogastonomiche”) although we have not had the chance to explore that side enough to say. Two hundred wines to choose from in bottle and quite a few by the glass.

You will have the same type of wooden chairs and tables but more calm and quite and better food five minutes away at Le Vecete:
