Verona Recommendations?

DistendedBelly | | Aug 26, 2011 09:00 AM

I did a search for Verona restaurants here, and didn't really come up with anything specific. There was mention of al Pompiere (but that kinda died when the OP was asked what was so great about the restaurant that he/she would want something similar in Rome), but I didn't see anything else after that..

We're spending one night in Verona, and I'm still deciding which restaurant to choose.

Al Pompiere does indeed sound quite lovely.. but there are a few red flags*:
1. It's near Juliet's house (albeit down a semi hidden alley)
2. It's rated quite high on TA (although the earlier reviews are in Italian)
3. It's in all the guide books, eg LP (I'm not saying that they never list decent restaurants in there, but I generally just quickly glance over the eating section in guidebooks)

*It is, however, in GR (a fork and a 74 rating iirc.. don't have the book with me now), and it is also in the L'Osterie guide.

Anyhow, if it's not this place, I've narrowed it down to these others:
* Al Capitan della Cittadella
* Sottoriva
* 12 Apostoli
.. and perhaps il Desco, although I'd prefer a more casual dinner for our time in Verona.

Side note: We'll be visiting Bottega del Vino during the day for snack or lunch + glass of wine as well..

All further thoughts + recommendations/suggestions welcome!

Thanks in advance,
