Al Pompiere (VR)
Feel like enjoying the most authentic culinary traditions of Verona? Hidden in the old center, Al Pompiere (“the Fireman”) is one of the best and oldest restaurants in town. Established in the first half of the 19th century, it was originally opened as a wine bar by a retired fireman with a passion for good food.
Run by chef Marco Dandrea, nowadays the trattoria offers a great selection of local products, such as cured meats and cheeses, as well as superb traditional dishes, like risotto (rice) cooked with Amarone wine or baked pork shank.
