The history

A five-generation history

Ristorante Arche is the story of a passion for cooking that spans three centuries and five generations. Since 1877, the Gioco family has managed one of the most enchanting places to eat in Verona, near the Arche Scaligere and next to Romeo’s house.

In a context full of charm and romanticism, Giuseppe Gioco started the business in the second half of the nineteenth century, when Arche was initially an inn with accommodation. Then it would have been tavern, trattoria and, finally, restaurant. A path that from Giuseppe continued with Edoardo, Giuseppe, Giancarlo and now Silvia Gioco, who leads Ristorante Arche with her husband Damiano Pellicari and the contribution of their children Riccardo, Matteo and Vittoria.
