We went to Verona for one day only and we chose to have our lunch at Osteria Macafame, which was a great choice because the risotto we had here was unforgettable! In Verona they are famous for their rice and risotto so we just had to try. As always with risotto you have to order minimum for two people. We usually try to take different dishes with my husband so we can try more things but at the end we were so happy that we decided to go with Risotto all’Amarone. It was perfectly creamy and perfectly al dente! Very well balanced taste. The portions were very generous. When the plate arrives you think it’s a good but not so big portion but when you start eating you realize that the plate is quite deep. I took to try typical local red wine of Verona - Valpolicella - and it went ideally together (no wonder- the risotto itself is made with Amarone della Valpolicella). Then we shared Tagliata di cavallo all’Amarone (horse steak with wine sauce), it comes with roasted potatoes on the side. We asked it medium rare. It was big and very tender. Very good. Was our second time trying horse meat and it didn’t disappoint. For the dessert we tried sbrisolona with maraschino. The prices are super honest. Service is super nice (our waitress was extremely sweet). Wonderful experience in general.

Osteria Macafame scores fairly high in the middle-of-the-range restaurants. We eat an appetizer, main course and dessert!

My table-mate had an appetizer of courgette and parmesan and I had pasta with sardines. Especially the lasagna of courgette and parmesan was superlekker.

The main course was a home-made macaroni with pomodori and prawns and a salad of octopus!

Dessert was a combination of different desserts.

Service friendly and correct.

I doubt for a long time between 3 and 4 dots. In the end I choose for 4 balls because it is not expensive. The price quality is good!

Read the reviews before going and wasn't disappointed. Staff were very relaxed and easy going. We went for lunch and returned for dinner. Food was great value for money. Restaurant next door had zero diners compared to very busy Macafame; says it all.

Visited for dinner - shared a stater - platter of hams and cheeses ably described by our very friendly waiter who spoke excellent English.

We had mains which were extremely tasty, share a desert, 2 coffee's, half a litre of house wine and water, all for a very reasonable 60 euro.

We would really recommend

Situated in a narrow street, there are sbout 10 tables outside and maybe a further six inside. The menu isn't particularly extensive but the gnocchi we had were excellent and the desserts amazing. The staff spoke good English and were very friendly. Prices were very reasonable. We had considered returning but it was fully booked.
