I ate by chance at the E. Cuciar Verona, while taking a touristic walk through the streets of Verona. This bistro is located just near Verona’s Cathedral, in a beautiful Medieval Building. It is an unpretentious, little café, which serves apparently common, every day food:...More

Called in with friends for a Spritz. Great value at 3.50 Euro and less filling out with ice than other establishments! Lovely spot by the Duomo!

Description
Literally El Cuciar means "the spoon" in Veronese slang. So here at El Cuciar Bistrot, in Piazza Duomo 6/A, Verona, Italy, we serve drinks and authentic dishes prepared with quality ingredients that are mostly local, organic and seasonal. We give special attention to the raw materials, the suppliers and their products; we choose only that what is produced or cultivated with care, dedication and awareness. We collaborate with agricultural and food companies that share our own philosophy, in our opinion this is crucial for the well-being of our guests. With our menu we want to show that various food choices can coexist respectfully and satisfy all: we would like to welcome lovers of coffee and tea, along with those who want to taste a sweet or savory snack, maybe followed by a glass of natural wine or an Italian craft beer. This is also the right place for those who love the traditional Veronese cuisine but also for those who want to approach, or already know and want to deepen, the experience of Natural Cuisine: which is our true specialty.
