Pintxos Bistrot

Modern Italian in Verona

Taking its inspiration from Catalan-style tapas, this airy bistro offers an excitingly eclectic menu that mixes Italian pastas, Catalan cheeses and hams, and small plate dishes perfumed with exotic ingredients like lemon grass and tamarind – even sushi and sashimi. A local foodie favourite, it gets packed during the summer opera season – book ahead. There is no sign for the restaurant. Instead, look for Ristorante al Cristo, which shares the same entrance.
