We are six guys visiting Verona/Veneto in a couple of weeks (a Friday-Monday long weekend) on a wine/food trip.
We have most of our meals planned, but would appreciate recommendations for Monday lunch. Looking for a place with a set meny option (though not important) and good local wine selection (which I guess applies to any recommended restaurant in the region). Willing to travel a little bit but not too far as we need to catch a 16:55 flight from Verona (VRN). Rural or urban setting doesn't matter, but not too formal (i.e dress code).
A couple of options I have checked out are (closed as far as I can tell)
The hotel concierge has recommended the following (in general, not necessarily for lunch):
Trattoria “Alla Coà” http://www.trattoriaallacoa.it/
Ristorante “Groto de Corgnan” http://www.grotodecorgnan.it/ (closed)
Ristorante “Tre Marchetti” http://www.tremarchetti.it/it/
Ristorane “Osteria Ponte Pietra” http://ristorantepontepietra.com/ (this is the one I am leaning towards atm)
In another thread (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/854981) I have found mentioned
Al Duomo (not sure how downscale this place it; the mentioned thread says not to go to the bathroom?!)
Our other reservations (comments welcome!) are for:
Friday dinner @ atelier at the Villa Amista (where we are staying - and probably to only convenient option given a late arrival)
Saturday dinner @ la fontanina
Saturday lunchtime we have no concrete plans and will be wandering around Verona city centre (probably stopping by Bottega del Vino at least)
Sunday we are planning on visiting one or two wineries:
“Masi Agricola”- http://www.masi.it/
Azienda Agricola Quintarelli - http://www.wineweb.com/scripts/winery...
