Fantastic meal at brek in the piazza bra in verona. On walking past towards the ampitheatre we were given a 10% discount card and so we decided to eat here. Service fantastic, and food was superb, it was beautiful to sit outdoors eating wonderful italian cuisine. Highly recommend.

One of the main reasons for the good value is that service and cover charge is included in the price, which is very reasonable. However, really really terrible service - especially when events are on at the Verona Arena. I suppose the staff have no incentive to work faster.

Verdict: don't be tempted by the cover charge being included.
Pay the 3 euro more at another place- AVOID

This was the only restaurant my partner and I did not research before visiting, as the one we chosen for the evening was closed.

Service: waiters seemed more bothered about getting people into the place, rather than helping the customers who were already seated. It took 20 mins to get a waiters attention.

Food:

The meal did not start well, after the waiter took our drinks order he went to fetch us some bread.

Using his unclean hands he arranged us a bread basked from bread that we had watched be returned from other tables.

Food hygiene?

We both ordered lasagne.
Worst meal I have ever eaten in a restaurant. We both received a block of stodgey pasta that was microwaved to lute warm temperature. The tiny amount "meat"found in this dish was mainly arteries and what looked like nasty off cuts.

We left half of our meals and complained to the waiter. After 20 mins of trying to get someone's attention to point out our unhappiness, the waiter shrugged his sholdurs and asked us of we wanted deserts or to pay the bill.

Moreover, meals being delivered to tables other than ours also looked disgusting.

Save your self the trouble and eat elsewhere

After a hard morning sightseeing in Verona we were looking for somewhere to relax in the shade and have lunch. This place offered us what we were looking for. The day was exceptionally hot and the head waiter made absolutely sure were in the course of a ventilator and overlooking the plaza before the arena.We ordered their melon and ham dish. We were served in good time and the portion was quite generous. Price wise we found them decent. We would have no hesitation to return there if the opportunity present itself.
