My experience in Antica Bottega del Vino was surreal! The staff are very attentive and professional, the food is delicious and highly represents Verona. Must check out the cellar downstairs, it's epic! It's my favourite place in Verona!

We had heard this restaurant was a must. It's just a few steps off the marble walkway of old Verona. It's a good thing we had a reservation; it's always packed for good reason. It is like an ancient pub, but with an excellent waitstaff and the best food and wine in Italy. The name implies a wine store, but... More

This restaurant is worth all the buzz. We enjoyed one of the best meals we experienced during our two weeks in Veneto and Tuscany. You'll want to book well in advance in order to savor every offering on the exceptional menu. The service is equally outstanding and the wine cellar is one of the best anywhere.

Definitely a very good restaurant to choose in Verona, with a very good quality of food served in a old winery environment. Presentation of the dishes is not great but if you look at the quality ... is definitely there ! Is not only a restaurant, they serve also wines at a desk at the entrance ... that makes the... More

Please book well in advance ( months not days) This place buzzes. Locals take their dog for a walk and have abite to eat. Towards the back is the more formal restaurant which is packed. Excellent food and the wine bible over 200 pages is a fascinating envious read.

Must pre book, from the outside looks small and there is a bar as you walk in, the restaurant seating is to the rear and side setting is fantastic, the wine list is similar to that of a very large bible. The wine waiter knew her stuff! Both Food and service excellent. Would re visit. Located not from from main... More

You'll find a large crowd sipping wine outside on the stony streets and inside, you will find an overcrowded bar scene and a lovely, quiet, engaged dining room. The food is fantastic - all different tastes from Horse to pasta. I enjoyed a flower salad that was more flowers than salad and a fried fish dish, served in a tree... More

Antica Bottega del Vino is not a restaurant, not a wine bar, not a wine cellar, not even a delicatessen bar but it is a unique and cosy melting pot of all these aspects; a place which embodies the Italian spirit of the past, trying to bring it to new life nowadays.
