The Best Restaurants in Verona

When I was in college, I did a six-week study abroad program in Verona, and this charming city will always be special to me because it was my first extended stay in Italy. See my Spotlight: Verona post to learn why this city is so amazing.

During the study abroad program, I was a part of a group of over 30 students, and with six weeks to explore Verona, we were able to go to all kinds of restaurants, trattorias, and pizzerias. There were a few in particular that really stood out. If you’re going to be visiting Verona in the future, I would highly recommend the following restaurants!

1 The Best Restaurants in Verona

Pizzeria Bella Napoli

Simply the best pizza in Verona! We would descend on this place in a group of 15 to 20 people about once a week, and the food was always great. The staff were also very friendly, and it was just a good experience each time we went there.

In the past year, I have recommended Pizzeria Bella Napoli to two different people looking for Verona restaurant recommendations, and both reported back that the food was great and thanked me for the recommendation.

So if you’re looking for pizza in Verona, Pizzeria Bella Napoli is the place to go.

Bottega del Vino

If you’re looking for great food and great wine, Bottega del Vino is a great choice. They have a huge wine list and many wines by the glass. And the food is very classic and delicious. My favorite dish was the risotto all’Amarone, made with the great Amarone red wine from the area.

This place can be expensive, so I’d recommend going here if you’re looking to have a great night and splurge a little. I really enjoyed the ambiance as well. If memory serves, it’s located just off Via Mazzini about halfway between the Arena and Piazza Erbe.

Caffé Dante Ristorante

I always liked the Caffé Dante Ristorante because this is where we went on our very first night in Verona. From what I remember, the food is pretty good and reasonably priced. But the setting is the best past, as this ristorante is located in Piazza Dante. I have some really good memories of sitting outside and enjoying good food and good company on warm summer evenings.

So those are my recommendations for some of the best restaurants in Verona. There are probably many more that deserve mention, but I can’t remember any others in particular (I was there seven years ago, after all).

  2. I remember having a great lunch — risotto with Amarone — at this very cozy, authentic restaurant, La Pigna, not far from the Piazza Erbe where we were staying…LOVED IT:

    Hi Susan, nice! I can’t remember if I’ve been to La Pigna, but the name sounds very familiar. Risotto all’ Amarone is a great regional specialty, and I would definitely recommend that anyone traveling through Verona try it.

  6. Ciara Bosman says:

    Restaurants range from inexpensive and informal lunching or dining places catering to people working nearby, with simple food served in simple settings at low prices, to expensive establishments serving refined food and fine wines in a formal setting. In the former case, customers usually wear casual clothing. In the latter case, depending on culture and local traditions, customers might wear semi-casual, semi-formal, or formal wear. Typically, customers sit at tables, their orders are taken by a waiter, who brings the food when it is ready, and the customers pay the bill before leaving…;;’

    Be well
