I was introduced to Alla Grotto by a co-worker on a working visit to Verona. His words were "the best restaurant around" and boy, was he ever right! Located next to the cute little harbor and old-town, the place looks smallish from the outside but once you are inside, seating is plentiful and reasonably spaced.
The food was absolutely amazing, starting out with the raw fish platter, a selection of amuses and followed by the fish soup and the grilled bass. All of this was washed down with a Soave which was an excellent choice for the meal.
Service was fast, extremely competent (of the kind showing the waiter knows the dishes inside-out and knows how to treat his guests) and our glasses were never empty. Every single dish was presented exquisitely and tasted like it looked - refined and thoroughly enjoyable.
I am usually very critical of restaurants and can find at least a niggle with something or other - not this time! This restaurant is a true gem.
