Osteria La Tradisiòn is one of a number of great bars and restaurants that have sprung up recently on via Oberdan.
Just around the corner from Piazza Brà, it's the perfect place to wile away a rainy afternoon.

Friends in Verona often assume that I'm used to the cold weather because I'm from Scotland.
But though it's certainly true that Scotland is currently experiencing some pretty extreme weather conditions, winter temperatures in Verona are actually lower than those in Edinburgh.
At least in Verona you don't have to contend with the wind and rain though!
And the long hot summers more than make up for the short, cold winters.
For the moment though, I'm just enjoying the snow!
Last Thursday while enjoying a quiet pint in my favourite Veronese watering hole (regular readers may be able to guess which one), I struck up a conversation with an agreeable young couple at the bar.
The bloke was from Holland, his little brother was playing against Italy for the Dutch under 15s (Partita tra Italia e Olanda under 15), while his partner was a well-travelled Liverpudlian.
After much convivial banter, they put me on the spot, asking me to recommend just one place they should visit during their short stay in Verona.
Like so many visitors I speak to, they were looking for somewhere authentic to enjoy the local wine and sample some regional specialities.
Well, there really could be only one answer.
La Antica Bottega del Vino.
One of the oldest and most prestigious bars in Verona, La Bottega has a mythical wine cellar, delightful service, stunning surroundings and a diverse clientele.
There's no need to burst the bank either. A decent glass of red and a tasty bite can be enjoyed for around €5.
So, if you only go to one bar during your stay in Verona, make it La Bottega.
Failing that, you'll always get a warm welcome at the Celtic Pub!
