Description: Situated in historic centre of the Romantic city Verona , the restaurant Il Cenacolo is just a few steps from famous Arena Roman Amphitheatre and Piazza Bra' . The restaurant's structure, relaxing and elegant dining rooms with a traditional Veneto decors , majestic fireplace where most of dishes are cooked is particularly suitable for romantic dinners, events and for business dinners. In the summer time, instead, will be accommodated in the open area, an elegant frame in the heart of Verona. The Restaurant can accommodate up to 140 guests. The tasty food and a good selection of wines of the region made this place special and ideal for any event : light quick lunch, romantic or business dinner, celebration of anniversaries or birthdays etc.

first off, not a place for vegan; grilled meat is the specialty of the house along with tasty risottos ( risotto ai funghi is a must have); their selection of antipasti is decent, not stunning for quantity and quality; the real specialty is the meat and grilled vegetables.

also desserts are not remarkable, just enough to satisfy your sweet tooth but nothing more.

Elegant atmosphere but kids friendly; staff was helpful and welcoming

overall a good choice

We have been there with a quite large group of 9 ladies and even though the restaurant look for couples, the welcome was very worm and we enjoyed on just the dinner, which was very good, but also the atmosphere and the courtesy of the waiter.
The meat was excellent and the desserts very good indeed.

The crispy shrimps on pumpkin cream and crustations bisque is probably the most flavour filled starter I have ever tasted. It really was that good. I followed that with a t-bone which was nice, but comparable to the starter or indeed the steak I'd had at The Butcher a couple of nights earlier.

My wife had parmesan egg plant to start and loved that as well, followed by lamb chops which she also enjoyed.

On the downside I felt this place was a little bit sniffy/stuck up. I don't drink wine which seemed to offend them, so much so that they didn't really pay us much attention. We waited for 30 minutes to receive the bill, so not great service wise. The starters were great, but not sure I'd visit this place again..

This is one of my most favorite restaurants in Italy. Everything about this place is great: fantastic food, impeccable service, great setting and ambiance. And the prices are very reasonable, given the restaurant class. I also appreciate how they try to help when you call late for the reservation - sort of unusual for Italy.

I would recommend this place for everyone who likes Italian cousine and old, authentic locations.
The food is great, vegetables and cheese are especially good.
Last but not least the enterior is excellent. Open fireplace, ceiling made of wood, paintings, etc.
