We visited Il Desco as a special dining evening whilst we visited Verona and we were not disappointed! Incredible from start to finish. The most beautiful, relaxing decor with comfortable seating and a wonderful atmosphere. Staff were very welcoming and professional. All were very attentive and informative in regards to the menu and recommended the 11 course set menu to us to celebrate the launch of the new book. This was a fantastic recommendation and we did not regret this at all (although we were very full by the end!). Each course was a taste explosion and like nothing we'd ever had before. The best meal I have ever had the pleasure of eating. We paired this with the best bottle of Reisling we had ever tasted, chosen with help from the Sommelier. Also, if you aren't offered, ask for a glass of the dessert wine they pair with the set menu. It is the most decadent dessert wine you will have tasted, a beautifully sweet wine with a hint of papaya amongst other fruits. We were so appreciative of this meal and would love the opportunity to go back one day if we do choose to visit Verona again. If you are undecided on whether to visit this restaurant, please book it and don't look back you honestly will not regret it!

My and wife are trying to go to as many Michelin star/recommended places as we can afford. This is something different than just food. This is about passion and ability of making something common taste exceptionally well. Il Desco was on my list way before we visited Italy, well before visiting Verona. Their family business was just about to prove us that there is much more to explore than we ever expected.

Interior are amazing. Place looks stunning, its kind of like posh restaurant for snobs, but atmosphere makes it up. We went for tasting menu promoting their new book and my godness - it was so worth it! Out of all dishes we didnt like one, which is much less than any other michelin tasting menus anywhere else. Somelier who is also Chefs son (also a chef) recommended us a really good wine as we had no space for another 9 glasses matching each meal. Service was perfect, and i have also bought their cooking book and it was signed by owners. We will be back there if possible in the future! Best food experience of our life.

The stars are not just in the Michelin guide, from the chefs, the somelier and the waiters, they are all over the place.
The food and the service were exquisite.
I'll say no more, because the best way to become boring is to say everything...

Four of us dined here ifor dinner n July. It was Verona opera season, but we managed to get a table and were not disappointed. The food is exquisite, the service charming. Lots of little delicious extras. A real treat.
