We are the latest generation of the Verdolin family, which has always been into hotels and catering. It all started with my father Lorenzo’s parents. Granddad Ettore and grandma Bruna were true pioneers who started off with a restaurant, and who then expanded the business with a just a few rooms. In time this inn became well-known among the travellers of the so-called “Bassa Veronese” area, the huge plain south of Verona that was famous for its rice fields.
My father grew up in the kitchen, where he tasted grandma’s pies. After helping out in his parents’ restaurant and running the inn, he met Elvira, our mum, and decided to follow in his parents’ footsteps.
