This is an incredibly elegant place decorated in a tasteful and refined style. The 16th century caisson ceiling is marvelous, as are the paintings and multi-coloured tapestries. One of Il Desco's classics is Escalope of Liver in Recioto and pear sauce. Other menu choices include Scampi and Pea Ravioli. For the next course, there is the unbeatable warm salad with marinated lobster or suckling pig flavoured with mint - crunchy on the outside and irresistibly tender inside. For dessert, choose melon slices with Port Granita or pancakes with ricotta and hot forest fruits.
We visited Il Desco on April 14th. It was a disappointing experience. It stated ok, the food, wines and service were very good, but after an hour they seemed to forget us. And when the only meat course came (duckbreast), it was not at all satisfactory. We were a company of seven people, and we all had the degustation menu. One glas of red wine was all we got, but we had four plases of white. Almot 180 euros per person was not at all value for money!
my partner and i went to verona for our 10th anniversary and had an unbelievable experience at Il Desco.The food, the service and the overall ambience was just awesome.
A real treat and one that we will be doing again next year.
Went to Il Desco for a pre opera dinner in August and had one of the most memorable dining experiences of my life. Fine italian fare prepared by a master chef, in elegant and friendly atmosphere. Quite expensive but a meal to remember. You only live once.
This is one of the best places we have ever experienced!It is worth the travel!
We have been there 3 times now and are planning to go again this summer with the same group of friends, who are also looking forward to the next visit.
Our dinner at Il Desco was outstanding. The restaurant itself is lovely. The food was even better.
The four of us each had the Tasting Menu; 9 different small dishes, each better than the last. The combinations and sauces were creative and, while rich, not overwhelming. A magnum of Barolo was the perfect compliment.
The courses were flawlessly served under the watchful eye of owner Elio Rixxo who, while appropriately formal, was friendly and easy to talk with.
Our dinner made for a wonderful evening. We'll go back to Verona just to revisit Il Desco.
