Restaurants in Verona

Adriano  


Carpe Adriano.

The motto, in dialect, reads: "Magnammo e ppo' vevimmo pechhè quando murimmo chissà si' all' auto munno taverne nce truvammo." In a nutshell, "Let’s live and eat because when we die who knows if we’ll find a restaurant." (Let alone a good one) And this one is. Adriano is all about seafood (chateaubriand offers you the only substantial meat relief). Cuttlefish risotto. Shrimp with Calabrian sausage (the north-deep south mix that works well here). Turbot, bass, and grilled seafood skewers of all kinds. Beware Saturday night. The place is hot. No lunch on Monday. — Katrina Maiano

De Rossi "Il Fornaio"  


Before the Arena...

Maybe if Romeo and Juliet had made a quick trip here for their picnic basket, events in Verona would have ended better. The bread’s the thing: try the walnut bread or get the 'fixins for a sandwich. Sweets for the sweet, too. Ideal to put together an al fresco snack before going to the Arena to watch others meet their fates or to take back to your own love nest. Open until 7:30 p.m. — Judy Edelhoff

Enoteca della Valpolicella  


Valpolicella abounds...

On the grounds of the Corteforte estate, Valpolicella is naturally everywhere to seen and tasted in this enoteca. Tasting is a given, but it would be a mistake to drown yourself in wine at the expense of the cuisine. Stracotta di manzo al Amarone (beef marinated with wine and vegetables and slow cooked) is delectable. The tagliatelle are homemade. The 15th century cantina is still intact and worth a walk-through. — Katrina Maiano

Il Cenacolo  


Off the Bra...

Another Piazza Bra mixed bag. Cuisine is traditional but look toward the ample grill since it dishes up excellent meats and vegetables. The pasta (maceroni, tortellini and risotto) is acceptable but hardly special. So go for the charred stuff and a bottle of Valpolicella. Lots of big tables since the place has lots of conference deals going with hotels and local associations. Nothing wrong with that unless you had a romantic evening in mind. — Katrina Maiano

Il Desco  


Michelin-anointed Desco.

Michelin-beloved Verona fusion (extra-virgin "gelato" anyone?) that’s as tasty as it is overpriced (hard to walk out for under a €100 a head). Still, if you have the cash and revel in visionary cooking, go for it. Examples from Chef Elia Rizzo: Guinea fowl with chocolate sauce and balsamic vinegar, beef cheeks in cinnamon sauce and cloves, risotto with celery and sweetbread ragout and shrimp purée, suckling pig flavored with mint. Dessert offers melon slices with Port Granita and pancakes with ricotta and hot forest fruits. Closed Christmas to January 10. — Katrina Maiano

Osteria del Duca  


Romeo was here. Maybe...

There’s a suggestion that this 1200s palazzo was once owned by the Montecchi family which might make it Romeo's house, or at least Romeo hangout. To their credit, no one here seems to capitalize on the marketing opportunity. Try penne con pomodoro e melanzane. Since horsemeat is still served in these parts, avoid cavallo or asino, or don’t, depending on your food politics. Horse and ass both taste like a boiled meat. No reservations — Corinna Amendola

Trattoria alla Colonna  


Attack of the elephant ears.

Solid trattoria close by to Piazza Viviani (known locally as Piazza delle Poste) that tends to find its balance on the late side — by late, we’re talking 9:30 p.m. The gnocchi Gorgonzola and beef stracotta Amarone are both Verona-worthy. If you’re hungry, there’s the famous Orecchia di Elefante culet ("ear of the elephant"), which serves three or four. Keep your mouth shut about Chievo; this is an AC Verona place. Just look at the walls. No lunch on Monday. — Katrina Maiano

Tre Corone  


Pretty but pricey...

The full name of this place, which is on Piazza Bra near the Arena, is La Trattoria di Giovanni Rana Tre Corone. As impressive as the name is for many reasons, the restaurant rests too much on past laurels (and thus yields to overpricing). Verona pasta-maker ("Mr. Tortellini") Rana long ago turned his full attention to his pasta line and American exports. The associate is slender at best. Still, the local Veneto staples are all here and in working order: cotolette, gnocchi, roast pig with polenta, and San Pietro (John Dory) fish. It's all fine per se but lacking in zeal. It’s as if the piazza and its nearby monument had gotten the better of a place that in its heyday pleased a demanding local clientele but no longer needs to do so more than occasionally. — Katrina Maiano
