Osterias are places full of atmosphere, where you can taste wines not only from Verona, but from every Italian region, accompanied by tasty snacks. Your guide will be able to suggest which wines cannot be missed, giving advice and tasting notes.
In Verona you will also find numerous restaurants, some of which are very old and have great tradition. In these restaurants you will be able to taste the typical dishes of Verona such as the Amarone risotto or risotto with radicchio (red salad), the horse stew (pastisada de caval), donkey stew (stracotto d’asino), boiled meat with pearà sauce (bollito con pearà), Veneto region salami (soppressa veneta) with polenta (corn flour cream), Monte Veronese cheese, all paired with the great wines of Verona.
