I had tried this little restaurant about 10 yrs ago and had the chance to go again last week. It was exactly as I remembered: friendly and unexpensive, but with quite good local food. QUite recommendable. They areind of specialised on horse and donkey meat, although you can get many other things, of course. Set menu is 20€.

The place is nice, good traditional food even if some plates are not exclusively from Verona, nice wine. The restaurant is tiny and tables are really closed each other, but nice atmosphere. Moreover it's closed to Piazza delle Erbe and many centre monuments, so it can be easily reached during touristic walkaroud. Good for couples or small groups. Better to... More

Found this place near Romeo's house...really a great restaurant! The pasta with gorgon zola and radicchio was very tasty, as well as the pasta with donkey ragu! Their horse meat is delicious - both the steak and meatballs. Nice atmosphere, very good lunch price (18 € menu) highly recommended!!

Finding a proper place to eat a typical dish of a certain locality is really a challenge. There are so many places to eat in Italy and most of them will never let you down. However, after several travels around this country, you get the feeling that you are totally missing out on traditional and regional cuisines if you keep... More

Don't bother. I don't like to give negative reviews but...it was the one of the worst meals I have ever had in Italy. The principal ingredient was horse meat which I don't care for, the pasta was over-cooked, menu options were limited. We did have a good bottle of wine! There are so many good restaurants in Verona, we were... More

We were a group of 22 people, college students and adults. My husband teaches for Colby College in Verona every January, and Al Duca is where we have our welcome dinner. This is a COZY place where you feel you could sit forever soaking in the ambiance. The food is great, simple classic dishes, including horse and donkey meat, if... More

I have been to Verona many times and once that I heard that I have managed thus far, to miss the oldest eatery in Verona, I thought we had to go. Our first impression was good as it was packed and all Venetians, but simply put... the staff aeemed stressed and uninterested and the food was 'average' and below what... More

The good stuff - it's in a nice quiet location and has a warm & welcoming atmosphere. We may have been unlucky, but were both disappointed by the food. We had similar dishes in Verona - pasta / aubergine / polenta - ranging from delicious to spectacular - but on this occasion both our main courses were left half-eaten &... More

We had an excellent lunch here, all other diners appeared to be locals. We both had Penne Romeo for first course, and Bob had veal with funghi for second, while I had a lovely salad with lots of fresh vegetables and mozzarella chase. Wine by the glass was good tho a nice assortment of bottles available as well.

We walked by this small restaurant on the way to see Romeo's house, and were coaxed in by the delicious smells coming out of the kitchen. We sampled the bigoli (big spaghetti) with white amatriciana sauce (I didn't know there was such a thing!) and another bigoli with a type of donkey meat ragu! They were both so delicious, so...
