Restaurants in Verona - Trattoria da L'Amelia

Amelia Restaurant Verona

Trattoria da L'Amelia,

Lungadige B. Rubele 32,

Verona


The Trattoria da l'Amelia is right near the top of the list of our most loved restaurants in Verona Italy. Located on the banks of the Adige the Antica Trattoria da l'Amelia (its full name) is a short walk away from Piazza Bra, the Arena and most of the other main sights of Verona.

It is the ideal Verona restaurant if you would like a very typical restaurant with good food at prices that won’t break the bank.

You can try a large selection of well prepared local dishes from the Verona area and the rest of the Veneto – particularly Venice and Vicenza and you get the bubbly personality of the two owners Roberto and Mario thrown in for free!

Polenta with sorpressa, chicken livers and gorgonzola is the appetizer I really love. It combines classics from various parts of the Veneto region – polenta, livers and the quite wonderfully magnificent Sorpressa salami.

For a classic of Venice Italy you can try the Sarde in Saor (Sardines in a Vinegar sauce) as an appetizer or the Fegato (Livers) alla Veneziana as a main course.

You can keep on with local dishes (gnocchi, polenta, tripe) all through the menu but if you have not an adventurous bone in your body then they have things like lasagna too and a few rather imaginative dishes dreamed up by Roberto.

Now all the dishes I've mentioned above are great, only thing is you might not find a single one on the menu.

Why?

Well the menu changes regularly depending on the season and according to whatever they find in the fresh produce markets.

Don't worry though as whatever they offer you it is sure to be delicious and you can trust their recommendations with confidence.

A comprehensive wine list of local wines and those from further afield rounds things off nicely.

You'll have the expert help of Roberto and Mario if you need advice on matching and even if you know your wines it is good to chat to them. They are sure to come up with something superb, that matches the food perfectly, and which you've almost certainly never heard of before.

The restaurant has three rooms but in the summer it is a good idea to ask to be seated in the garden courtyard which has a delightful atmosphere.

Not one of those super fancy and expensive Verona restaurants, but a good choice for eating local cuisine at reasonably affordable prices.

If you are looking for a place to stay in Verona these are my recommendations.
