We opened the doors of Verona Kitchen and Bar in November 2017 out of a passion for Italian food and a love for the country and city of Verona itself. Opened by a local family who have vast successful business experience, we've set out to create a delicious, memorable experience for our diners centred around great hospitality, quality food and a family centred mantra whilst also providing The Balcony Late Lounge, offering a completely different drinking experience from all nearby venues.
We have built a 'Family' at Verona Kitchen consisting of a kitchen team with extensive experience across all styles of cooking and cuisines that share a common passion for Italian food paired with our young, driven and ever welcoming front of house team led by general manageress Hattie, who together complete your dining experience.
Our talented kitchen team of seven chefs led by Head Chef Az have worked exceptionally hard to craft yet another delicious menu containing both traditional Italian plates along-side many of your favourite 'Italian Inspired' dishes. Our A La Carte Menu is made up predominantly of what we do best; Traditional Pasta dishes with your choice of pasta and our hand stretched Neapolitan Pizzas cooked in our wood burning pizza oven however we can assure you that our selection provides something for everyone!
On top of our core menu we have a range of daily contemporary Italian-inspired food specials and an extensive wine & drinks list, including many freshly made cocktails.
We pride ourselves on sourcing the best quality produce whether it be imported from Italy or sourced from our local award-winning suppliers. We try to introduce many new ingredients that our customers may not be familiar with to provide an authentic Italian experience, for example the use of Guanciale in our Spaghetti Carbonara and on our Porchetta roast dish. Guanciale is an Italian cured meat product prepared from pig cheeks to provide a delectable and robustly flavoured meat that cannot be compared to Bacon, believe us when we say it makes the difference.
