A lot of our weekend in Verona involved eating. The Saturday was wet and rainy. We managed to wander around for a bit, see Juliet’s balcony, eat a late lunch from a take-away (a panzarotti which is like a delicious pillow), and a dash around the Christmas market while drinking gluhwein under an archway.
We finally decided to head to an enoteca recommended in our guidebook. If you are a fan of those kind of musty second hand book shops that have their goods all over the floor you will love this place. Enoteca Oreste dal Zovo had a selection wines and other drinks – we had two glasses each for a reasonable amount as well as some snacks. The wine was second fiddle to the amazing interior though which had painted ceiling and an amazing arrangement of drawings and paintings. I have no idea if it is the best but well worth a visit.
On Sunday morning we had a late breakfast (more like lunch) at the Retro Bar near the Duomo (as in across the street). This is an awesome option if you are vegetarian/vegan or gluten-intolerant as they had a wide selection, as well as coffee with almond milk as an option. Their food was really good, their decor fun, service friendly and they had chalkboard placemats! Plus I had a cappuccino with Nutella! Life changing I tell you.
We also had dinner at Milio a S. Anastasia Restaurant. It had a lovely atmosphere with super comfortable chairs, good wine and a decent selection for us veggies.
