L'Osteria del Bugiardo
Though its name might be “the osteria of the liar,” this place is truly the genuine article. The owner of the place, Alfredo Buglioni, is passionate about Veronese gastronomic traditions. He has a vineyard in Valpolicella, where the house wines, called Buglioni, are made. The place will be absolutely packed in the evenings with locals, who come for the buzzing atmosphere, great wine and fair prices. The place also serves up savory appetizers of various cheeses and salumi, primi of freshly made pasta, and classic, stick-to-the-ribs secondi of meat and polenta. Forget about Juliet’s House or the Arena—this place is a must for anyone visiting the city.
