Osteria al Duca

Among the locals, this eatery is already an institution, and its key to popularity has been an excellent regional menu at affordable prices. Due to Verona's main tourist magnet (the house of Juliet) being in the vicinity, sometimes a few gawkers tend to wander in as well. This, however, does not lessen the charm of Osteria al Duca. Adding to its appeal is the fact that it is one of the oldest osterias in the city, and it is housed in what was once a stable for horses. One of the featured dishes here is the local specialty, pastissada, the main ingredient of which is, logically, horse meat. Despite the many attempts at banning the consumption of equine, horse meat has been a mainstay of Veronese cuisine since Roman times. They say the practice was brought to the region by the invading barbarian tribes from the North, shortly before the fall of Rome.
