Found on the Adige river in Northeast Italy, the town of Verona is renowned for its stunning architecture, romantic stories and artistic heritage. Each year, multitudes of visitors arrive in the ancient city; some to fall in love under Juliet’s Balcony, others to live in the past at the Verona Arena, but everyone comes to experience the food. At the city’s informal trattorias, you can find food that is honest and spirited, and distinctly Verona. Generations of families, pairs of lovers and groups of friends gather together not only for a meal, but for the pure enjoyment that an evening of exceptional food, memorable conversation and togetherness brings.
With our thoughtfully chosen menu and locally sourced ingredients, Bar Verona strives to deliver cuisine that is fresh and uncomplicated, yet unique and refined; honest and spirited food and drinks that our nearby neighbors and out of town guests will remember not only as delicious, but also want to bring their loved ones back to experience for themselves. So linger over brunch with your friends, flirt over one more glass of wine or share a dessert with someone special, because you’re in Verona and it’s time to vivi la bella vita.
Chef Fabio Viviani has harbored a passion for food since his childhood growing up in Florence, Italy. Between training in Italian and Mediterranean cuisine at the top hospitality schools and working with culinary luminaries such as Alessandro Panzani and Saverio Carmagini, Viviani also owned and operated several concepts by the time he was 27 including two nightclubs and five restaurants in Florence. Although a well-respected businessman in Italy, he was ready for a change and in 2005, Viviani moved to California where he opened his first USA based restaurant Café Firenze in Moorpark, CA.
