We had a fantastic late night meal here, after playing a strenuous concert at the beautiful Teatro Valli. The staff was nice enough to seat 12 of us at 11:30pm, the restaurant was still full and busy, so don't expect them to be super attentive i can imagine how stressful it is for the servers. The food was absolutely delicious.... More

We were a very large group who turned up without a booking. We were welcomed in and provided with quick and tasty food.

Il pozzo has been around for quite a number of years and it still is a safe bet. The owner is a grumpy wine expert who has dedicated himself to traditional dishes with a modern turn. Lovely atmosphere and setting in a cellar like ambience close to the theatres. If you are mobility challenged access is a bit tricky with... More

Food was delicious with decent prices. Restaurant is cozy with a nice décor. Waiter was not as fluent in English which resulted in miscommunication on orders (hence the 4 star).

It's not the cheapest place you will come across but with a menu packed with local specialities, superb wine and professional service it makes for a good night out.

It looks as if it needs some cleaning but it's never dirty inside, but something remembers you of a place which has been closed for long and needs some fresh air. Food is impeccable and the wine list too. Good grappas and exquisite dolcetti!

I came to this restaurant 5 years ago and loved it. I enjoy the summer patio, the decor, the tables nestled between the treed courtyard and the view of a 'tower' nearby covered in vines. That is about where the pleasure ended for me. The food was average and the service was not up to par with the rest of... More
