    Tre Marcchetti de Barca
    4 more images

    Trattoria Tre Marcchetti da Barca is best restaurant in Vrona and one of the best in whole Italy.
    It is tiny, cosy, full o people and noisy restaurant.
    The restaurant offers very traditional and home-based type of food. Here you can taste Italy "on the table".
    I suggest you to make the reservation!
    During the summer (Opera season of Verona) it is open from 12:00 to 04:00

    Favorite Dish: This place is the icon of the Verona and the Veneto cuisine, it is a mom and grandma cuisine.
    My suggestion:
    - bigoli - fantastic pasta made by hand
    - pig shrimps with beans
    - white wine from Custozza
    It is very expensive restaurant, from 40-60 euros, but it worth all money you spend.

    Enocibus: Another hidden little trattoria

    by effeti Updated Feb 17, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The name, in latin, meas something like "Winefood".

    It is a very small little restaurant, hiiden in a small "vicolo " west from Piazza Bra. A short walk from the roman Arena, but away from the crowds of tourists.

    Familly managed, they serve to the very few tables (there is a few upstairs so) a wide selection of local food, and cheeses, and hams and salamis of every kind..
    You can see them by yourself in a grocery-style desk at the entrance...

    Good selections of wines too.

    A very pleasant stop, at a reasonable price, in a nice and cozy athmosphere.

    The price I indicate is meant for a full meal, with more courses... you can spend less for a quick and light meal....

    Favorite Dish: I had a nice onions soup....

    There is a huge covered piazza outside for tables over spill during the season. We ate indoors and started with prosecco then antipasto followed by secondi of pollo arrosto and delicious maiale. Mineral waters, local San Pietro white wine and desserts totalled Eu77 all in.
    Very good service, marvellous cucina and highly recommended

    Favorite Dish: Hope maybe to go back one day and compare other items on the menu

    Note that although the web link below works, as of May 2008 the full site is under construction

    Trattoria "La Mescola": Excellet quality / price ratio

    by effeti Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    A little trattoria, very near the central Piazza Bra but isolated from the flloding crowds. Two rooms make the dining hall.
    Excellent quality for money, good food, fantasy in creating new dishes remaining in the main track of the italian/local cousine.
    All in all, a good place to have a dinner or lunch.
    Price for a 2/3 courses and a bottle of wine (we were 7) 22 euros each.
    CLOSING DAYS: monday and tuesday

    ****************************
    Update 2008. All good things have a end. The restaurant was sold. New name and new managment now. No idea on how it gets. I will post new tips as soon as i will find the time!

    Favorite Dish: Had a bruschetta dishes (4 little ones, of two kinds, servend over a thin slice of toasted bread) and a main dish of pork with honey.
    An excellent chocolate dessert, a sort of souffle....

    Osteria Mondo d'Oro: Good for a quick lunch -

    by effeti Updated Mar 11, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The outside of the Osteria

    Osteria Mondo d'Oro is a little Osteria / Wine bar, just a few steps from Piazza Erbe and the shopping street of Via Mazzini.

    I use to go there expecially during the good season, when you can sit outside, to have a quick crostini lunch (see below)

    The service -expecially outside - is very basic: wooden tables and benches, and 2/3 small round tables You will be asked, if your group is small, to share the table with other customers.
    See the "al fresco" of the osteria area in the street in the picture

    Favorite Dish: They have regular dishes, and a nice selection of wine, but their specialty is a wide selections of "crostini" (soft bread - dispite the name - rolls slices topped with... and here they go! at least 40 kinds of different salamis, hams, vegetables, cheeses... you can think to something between the Spanish tapas and the venetian cichéti).

    You get the list and order the ones you want: the price is €1 for the most (a little more for a few). A selection of 5/6 plus a glass of wine (they have a choice of good local and italian wines by the glass) stays under the 10€, and make a good, fast and yet decent light lunch.

    La Taverna Di Via Stella: Traditional Veronese cuisine

    The restaurant

    Found the restaurant while walking up Via Stella. It had a nice look and feel so we went in. The restaurant is not fancy, the furnishings originally came from taverns around Verona. While the decor won't knock your socks off, the food might.

    We had a pleasant lunch and were able to try some items not found everywhere. We enjoyed a liter of wine with our plates of Bigoli with duck sauce and Gnocchi alla Cavalla (gnocchi with horse meat sauce). Both were delicious. We finished with a tiramisu and panna cotta.

    Great traditional food at a good price. Check it out.

    Osteria Da Ugo: Eat with Veronese, not just tourists

    by Herkbert Written Jun 27, 2010

    Osteria Da Ugo
    1 more image

    Osteria Da Ugo was one of the best dining experiences we had during our recent Italian holiday. The combination of delicious food and wine and great service, coupled with the friendliest staff around can not be beat. We tip our hats to Da Ugo for a great evening.

    The food was terrific. We went with the prosciutto crudo to start, as they said they had some delicious ham and really ripe melons - they weren't kidding. Next, we went local. I had the Bigoli with duck and Sue had the Donkey filled ravioli. Both were again delicious. We finished up with dolci of English cake and Diplomat cake. Perfect for that sweet tooth everyone brings with them. We enjoyed a bottle of Antolini Valpolicello Ripasso 2007 with our meal. Perfect, satisfying and very reasonably priced.

    Sounds like any other nice restaurant, but the part that is hard to put down in words is the attitude and charm that surrounded us. Our waiter took the time to chat with us about everything from wine philosophy to family life to travel. Not just pandering to the tourists, but really taking an interest, as we were also interested in his opinions. It was really very pleasant.

    We would go back to Osteria Da Ugo and highly recommend it to others.

    Favorite Dish: This one is a toss up, the Donkey raviolis were delicious as was the Bigoli with the duck sauce. I don't think you could go wrong ordering anything here.

    Trattoria alla Colonna: Dinner with the locals!

    Dinner at Trattoria alla Colonna

    Sylvain and I got hungry at around 8:00 pm on a Friday night - not the most practical thing since most people and restaurants were still at their "aperitivo" stage at this relatively early hour. After walking around for quite some time, we finally found Trattoria alla Colonna. This restaurant has a nice family atmosphere and seems to be really popular with the locals - everybody around us spoke Italian, and many customers came in and placed their order without even taking a look at the menu. We managed to get a table since we got there "early", but by the time we left the place was getting packed. The food was good (we had gnocchi al gorgonzola and penne al arrabiata), but it was not as memorable as our other meals in Verona. The price was more than right, though: the bill only came to 24 Euros for both of us, and that included wine.

    The Restaurant card
    1 more image

    This is a very little cozy place in the center of Verona, close Castelvecchio and on the way to Piazza Bra and Arena.

    Just a few places inside, and a few more outside, along the little and quiet "vicolo".

    Very nice athmosphere, good food and reasonable price, makes this is a very nice place to share a table in 2 or in 4, to have your meal chatting in a very pleasant way.

    It's higly reccomended to reserve, expecially at dinner time, and in weekends

    See picture #2 for a detail map of where the place is.

    Closed on Tuesdays

    Il Cappero - Osteria & Pizzeria: A nice choice outside the ancient city center

    by effeti Updated Jan 5, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Theier calling card

    This is a restaurant / Pizzeria, where you can have a wide range of meals, varying from a simple Pizza, a simple dish, or a full 3 courses dinner ... but they have a sophisticated side in their menu, not strictly local, with pastas (of course) rice, meats and seafood as well.
    Price may vary, of course, from 10 euro to 25/40 each.
    The restaurant is outside the ancient roman center (but at walking distance from it) and so it is ideal to reach by car (lots of parking place in the streets all around).
    There are always a few tables outside in two little yards, for the good season...
    Reservation is not mandatory, but it may be useful, especially for dinner near the weekend.
    I eat there 2/3 times a year... that qualifies as quite often, given the high number of restaurants Verona has.

    Favorite Dish: Mmmmm a lot.
    They change menu every now and then, so there are always variations.
    They use to make a good "tagliata di tonno" (a fresh tuna steak lightly coocked on a grill, and sliced to show the pinkish inner part of it).
    Desserts are all homemade, and quite delicious. A very good chocolate souffle' cames to mind!
    There is also a good wine list

    Osteria DA UGO: Modern execution of local cousine

    by effeti Updated Jan 5, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Warm athosphere, and local cousine. If you don't like luxury, but genuinity this is a good place for you

    Favorite Dish: Had a great fresh "egg" pasta with leeks, bacon and Vezzena cheese. Simply great.
    A second entry of pork meat with fresh asparaguses of the season was ok, too
    We payed around 28 each with and average of 2 entries, mineral water and wine.
    Good quality for money.

    Just a little warning: there was no written menu the time i ate there. That's good, because only day entries are proposed, and the restaurant isn't turisty at all, but i haven't tested the english skill of the waiters..
    The old way out from such a problem: look (with a little of discretion) at other tables, and if your eye is caught, point the dish to the waiter!

    UPDATE nov 2005: after a second visit with the Mapakettle couple, i can confirm my first opinion. Entries were quite different from first time. Fettuccine ai funghi freschi e carne di cervo (with fresh mushrooms and deer meat) and mixed boiled meats with the sauces of local tradition: Peara', cren e mostarda.

    UPDATE April 2009: a friend of mine told me a new management is in charge, but that it was a great experience anyway. I will explore by myself as soon as possible.

    UPDATE JAN 2010. finally I coud test it myself. I can say if i wasn't warned the management is new, i could easily did not notice it. The same atmosphere, same cousine... OK! We payed little more than 30 euros each for a full courses meal at dinner time. Good value for money.
    Now the menu is written, but random "dish of the day" may be available and told by voice on the fly.
    Closes sunday (only dinner time, open for lunch) and monday all day.

    Osteria il Bertoldo: Off the beaten path in Verona!

    by Stella989 Updated Jul 15, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is truly one of the places only the locals know about in Verona, and if you take a little time to find it, you'll walk away with a million tastes on your palate, a true authentic Italian dining experience, and only ten Euros less in your pocket.

    The menu changes weekly, as the chef/owner, a trained Roman cook with a passion for his trade, is constantly researching new recipes and wine to accompany his dishes. Fixed items include varieties of succulent Italian cheeses, salamis, and hams, with a an ample wine list to complete your dining experience. The weekly menu offers everything you could imagine, from traditional lasagnas and eggplant parmesan, to the more experimental couscous with fish or duck breast with fresh vegetables. On Tuesdays they also offer fish based menus, while Thursdays they include a menu of Roman fried fish and vegetables.

    First courses are 7 euros, while second courses are 9 euros. The wine list contains over 200 Italian wines, along with several types of local grappas and acque vite. To miss this restaurant is to miss the true, real, dining experience in Verona.

    If you wish to pay enormous prices for unauthentic Italian food thrown together on a plate by a non-Italian sous chef, head for one of the places in Piazza Erbe, Dante, or Bra. If you want the true Italian experience at less than half the price, make your way to Osteria il Bertoldo, Vicolo Cadrega 2a, and enjoy the free aperitifs and digestifs, along with tastes you will never forget.

    Favorite Dish: The fish menu on Tuesdays, plus the fried foods on Thursdays, and the KILLER desserts.

    Waiter posing

    This was a very nice restaurant on Piazza Flamina. it is off the beaten track so the traffic does not back up and do not have to wait, off season at least. Serving a number of "foreign" beers, mostly Germanic, but many other European also.

    Favorite Dish: I had a spaghetti dish that was very good, with alfredo sauce. They have pannins, and other sandwiches, but also more of the full lunch meals if you desire.

    Osteria Al Duca
    3 more images

    Osteria al Duca (osteria means inn) is one of the best and very popular restaurant in the old core of the town. It has traditional look, nothing fancy, but the atmosphere is just great. The place looks overcrowded but who cares about because the food is excellent.
    I recommend you to book your place in advance, otherwise you might stay out.

    Favorite Dish: Anything you order from the menu is delicious. My favorite dish is:
    - primo - spaghetti al olio con peperoncino
    - secondo - costoleta al forno
    - insalata di staggione
    - wine "Bianco di Custozza"
