This was the highlight of our stop in Verona! Great local food and ambiance! It reminded me of the old school NYC, Boston & Chicago restaurants of the 1930s..... very attentive staff, great presentation on their dishes & honest suggestions in regards to wine and dishes on behalf of our waiter. Try their donkey ragu and awesome salads!!

Passed by here and decided to give it a go. Very friendly waiters, gave us all hugs and kisses, men included! Made for a good laugh and a good time. Watch out for the wine they bring you as recommendations as they were €90 a bottle, we asked the price and then declined and said not prepared to pay more... More

Incredibly nice owner with fantastic food! I highly recommend the tagliatelle with black truffles. My Italian husband says it was one of the best he has ever had! Nicely paired with a glass of red wine it was the perfect combo!

Nice food and company, we had a scallop for starter, spaghetti bolognese for main course and two glasses of wine. Total cost 88 Euro. Very expensive for such dinner.

We have visited this resturant twice now, once as a couple in August and once with friends in October. Both times we ate some fantastic but different food. The staff are really friendly and helpful, playful even making for a really enjoyable night. Book though as it does get very busy!

We visited the restaurant based on its menu and reviews. Although the food was good we got tourist scammed in this restaurant which really ruined the complete experience. Scam 1: I ordered a plate that specifically stated on the menu " Grilled meat with vegetables" upon ordering the waiter asked me if i would like it with grilled vegetables or... More

After walking in the city I found this place and decided to have lunch there. The place is very nice and the stuff is friendly. Their salad P.Pietra is perfect! The pasta with sardines was good but for me the taste of the pasta with fish seemed a little bit strange. Good home wine. In general I was very glad... More

After a long day in Venice we wanted to enjoy a meal with our children which was tasty and filling. This was way beyond our expectations. We were welcomed in and although two of us are vegetarians there were delicious choices available. The donkey ragu was considered very tasty and the artichoke salad was yummy. We all loved the plentiful... More
