Antico Caffè Dante Ristoratore - Verona
Known documents involved to the Caffé Dante area begin in the XV century, when the place was turned into an orphanage, called Casa della Pietà, with a hidden cradle for unwanted children on the outside. According to the documents, in 1837 the place belonged to a certain Mr. Giovanni Squarzoni, who transformed the ground floor in a café, calling it “caffè Squarzoni”. In 1860 Mr. Luigi Capobianco bought the property and gave also it his own name. In 1865 to celebrate the 600th anniversary of Dante’s birth, a statue was unveiled in the square in front of the “Caffé Capobianco”. Showing his love for the poet and his patriotism, Mr Capobianco asked the authority the permission to change the name of his café to “ Caffè Dante Ristoratore”. It should have been him to order the paintings of the medallions with the faces of the leaders of the Risorgimento. The Dante became the meeting point for the veronese enlightened middle class, a place where they discussed cultural and political matters to the point that the Caffè Dante was nicknamed the “ parlamentino”, small parliament. Antico Caffé Dante Ristoratore, in the deep heart of Verona, is the perfect restaurant for all those who love this city. This historic place offers a warm and inviting atmosphere where a lunch or dinner accompanied by great wines becomes a unique experience and where even drinking a cup of coffee will become part of your memories of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. The traditional cuisine is based on fresh foods that are carefully selected and prepared, while original reinterpretations of traditional recipes gives Caffé Dante its exclusive atmosphere. Since the beginning of the 1900s, the “Dante” has been part of life in Verona and a true meeting point in the city.
