Time to fill in the gaps in our trip to Verona in 2016. We’re still in shock from actually quite liking the Opera. We decide to explore Verona. Lots of places to eat in the piazzas aimed inevitably at tourists (isn’t that what we are?). We four stop for a Spritz – three with Aperol and one with Campari, and then we remember a “little place we had lunch a few years ago”. Despite age, infirmity and the general deteriorating faculties we remember where it was and head over there, down a little side street by the river. We used Google maps just to sure. We discover it full and about to stop serving. Determined to relive the experience we book for the next day.
Santa Felicita is in a converted church. There are a few tables invitingly placed on the street, and the weather is beautifully warm, but to gain the best effect we eat inside.
In the heart of the historical centre of Verona, between Ponte Pietra and Piazza delle Erbe inside a deconsecrated church of Romanesque period dedicated to the Saints Perpetua and Felicita lies the Restaurant “Santa Felicita” which offers a fine dining suited to meet the expectations of the most demanding palates.
No complaints about the food, or the setting. We settle in to a bottle warm fruity red and some delicious pasta and a couple of pizzas. Do try it – it’s worth the effort to find it.
