The setting is nice as well as the service. The food was not spectacular. the plates presentation was very nice but the food tasting for me was not good. My spectations were far beyond what i had since its a michellin star restaurant.

Personal service from Elia and Matteo Rizzo makes a visit unforgettable. We had the tasting menu with wine paring. The food was exceptional, visually stunning and a great taste. The price is reasonable for the experience (including being seated by the chef).

The tasting menu as well as service were both incredible. I can distinctly remember each course and they were all delicious, creative, and visually stunning. The veal tartare, crab soup, mint spaghetti with goat cheese, foie gras, and Gorgonzola/walnut dessert were each so special to me. An absolutely amazing meal I will never forget.

Restaurant experiences for us are based on three criteria: ambiance, service and food. Il Desco scored pretty close to perfect on all three! Service having the best score. Despite a full restaurant and many servers, there was no excessive clinking of cleared plates and cutlery, which for me is a hallmark of a well-run operation and well-trained staff. The food,...

Having eaten here twice last year the restaurant remained a top favourite that we instantly recall when asked about great places to dine. its over a year since we last dined at Il Desco and we thought it was time for a return trip. So we booked flights to Verona and went back this last weekend - twice! The menu... More

I've eaten in many great restaurants. Five or six stand out in my mind, they're just so good. And this is one of them. It's not at all inexpensive, BUT it's not outrageous either, for the quality. Start with the venue: Like eating in an art gallery with some really, really good art. The service -- for each item; e.g.,... More

Bit more conservative situated in the city centre, this restaurant offers class and fine dinning. Tasting manu is rich with flavours and rounds up journey of italian food tasting. Playes are decorated to perfection, taste is excellent and in detail presented by staff. Wine list is au pair with food. We have nothing to add more but to come and... More

The food here was truly wonderful. The restaurant is elegant yet modern, and we received excellent service, particularly from the sommelier.

We saved this Michelin star restaurant for our final night in Verona and it turned a very good holiday into a superb one. This is fine dining at its best. The staff are very friendly and helpful without a hint of "we know best". There is a tasting menu and A la Carte, we chose A la Carte as the... More
