With a two course meal for two with wine and water for just 37€ we were very pleased. The meat selection for starter is a must and the rabbit ragu pasta main were highlights!

The lunch there was a joy of meals, wine and great atmosphere. Two courses of pasta, sausage risotto, perfectly grilled horse steaks, and above all, excellently grilled lamb. The house wine is really giving a feeling of Mediterranean easy lunch. And all the menues for 12 euro are more than value for money. Great and cheerful service.

Went there based on TA reviews...it was a good value but mediocre food. $12 for meal with wine, which they didn't offer, I asked about it since there was a sign by the door. I guess for the value it was good, but I'd rather have a better meal for a few more euros.

We stopped for lunch and fancied everything on the menu. I had the meat ravioli with pumpkin sauce and it was the tastiest dish I've had in Verona. My husband loved his home-made bigoli pasta with fish and we then shared a half carafe of the house white. He raved about his perfect Americano: an espresso with a small jug... More

This was our first evening meal in Verona. We booked ahead online and the staff were very friendly. We chose to have starters to share and then meals from the secondi section which were all reasonably priced. The pear tart to start was amazing! For mains there is quite a heavy amount of horse on the menu which went down... More

Now that we're back home and looking at photos, we both agree that our evening spent at Hostaria La Vecchia Fontanina was possibly the best evening of our 3 months stay in Italy. The staff, the Chef, the food together, made this one memorable evening.

We are so pleased we found this small informal restaurant whilst walking around the old quarter of Verona. Slightly off the beaten track, down a small street near the river. We hadn't planned on eating lunch as we were departing Verona that evening and had hoped to find somewhere to eat later on but once we saw the menu outside... More

If you would like to try bollito con peara, traditional Veronese sunday lunch, there is no better place in Verona to do it. Families, couples, friends all queue up over the weekend to eat here - a small, unpretencious osteria is a home to renowned chef Marco Segattini, who is known for putting modern twist on traditional food.

This is real food prepared with passion and served with class by cheerful and skilled servers.The daily fixed "business lunch menu" is second to none in town for value and quality. A la carte, after the Polenta starter, ask the servers for a "bis" of first courses in order to try more than one pasta dish (at the price of... More
