Pizza and Coffee in Verona


Myra here.

Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Pizzeria in Verona

When we traveled from Munich to Milan by bus, we made sure that we also included Verona in our itinerary while we were in Italy. But of course, it is the city of Romeo and Juliet, apart from being a haven to delicious food. Over the past several weeks, I have been sharing food-related posts from our Europe travels – and this is part of that series.

This is us, excitedly taking our own personal tour to Verona from Milan. We just searched the details up on the Internet, and crossed our fingers that we take the right train and go down on the right stop, etc.

Unfortunately, while I do have photos of our food and some pictures outside of the restaurant, I do not have the full details of their location, nor do I recall the name of the food that we ordered. Suffice it to say that they are all extremely satisfying.

So this is a restaurant that we found by chance, while walking the streets of Verona, and trying to decide which ones would appeal to us, given our budgetary constraints as well. While we normally consult the internet about places to visit, we also make it a point to just allow places to find us.

“Everything you see I owe to spaghetti.” 
― Sophia Loren


My daughter’s favourite: gnocchi in Verona.

“When the phone rang I was in the kitchen, boiling a potful of spaghetti and whistling along with an FM broadcast of the overture to Rossini’s ‘The Thieving Magpie,’ which has to be the perfect music for cooking pasta.” 
― Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle


“Thinking about spaghetti that boils eternally but is never done is a sad, sad thing.” 
― Haruki Murakami, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman


“What is life, it comes to me, without the occasional risk of pizza?” 
― Tim Federle, Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories

Cafe in Verona: Caffé Borsari

Address: Corso Porta Borsari, 15d, 37121 Verona VR, Italy


After walking off our lunch and seeing the arena and Juliet’s tomb, we worked up a hankering for coffee. This one, I believe, we searched up on the Internet. While coffee is tasty, it is quite expensive. It is good for a one-time kind of experience.

“I’d rather take coffee than compliments just now.” 
― Louisa May Alcott, Little Women


“Coffee is a way of stealing time that should by rights belong to your older self.” 
― Terry Pratchett, Thud!


“The fresh smell of coffee soon wafted through the apartment, the smell that separates night from day.”
― Haruki Murakami, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
