Excellent food

If you are looking for excellent food and service in a restaurant in the middle of nothing in the country side: this is your place. Tortelloni, polenta, meringata: terrific!! I can't find any improvements points.

I was there with my boyfriend last weekend. Atmosphere is nice, especially for a romantic dinner, and service is fast and excellent. We got two pasta dishes and a shared polenta with cheese with 2 glass of wine and a coffee and after-dinner drink and we paid 70 euro, with one little sbrisolona (cake) for free.That in my opinion is...

We had cycled to Trattoria La Stella from Mantova on a warm August day. Even though we hadn't booked and we were obviously not well dressed we were welcomed into this lovely restaurant with a deliciously chilled glass of prosecco. A fabulous start to what was a surprisingly great lunch. My husband and I shared a light chicken salad which... More

Welcoming, nice staff. The atmosphere is relaxing, the food delicious and there are always some seasonal dishes. The attention to the details which you note from the very beginning, with a glass of champagne as a compliment by the Chef. Price/quality is very good. Highly recommend the desserts which are homemade and really worth trying. The place you will want... More

I should say that the chef is really good. However, after getting the first course, we waited 90 minutes to get the following one! We don't know if this is usual there, but our 7 years old daughter fell asleep and we lost completely our appetite. After asking them what was happening to our meal, we got some evasive answers,...

We don't often go to the same restaurant twice as we have such a fantastic range of them in this area, but this is one of the exceptions. We were here in the summer and sat in the garden area and agreed that it was one of the best meals we had had. This time we went for Sunday lunch... More

We biked from Perschidra to Montova and found this amazing restaurant on the way. The service and the food were out of this world. They made us feel like we were at home and we had some traditional dishes from the region. Finishing of course with lemon gelato. There were 8 in our group and they accommodated us with great...

We live in Italy and are familiar with local specialities. Having relations over and visiting the Mantova area we wanted them to try the tortelli di zucca (pumpkin filled tortellini). Having had this dish many times before I can honestly say this was the best ever. One of us had the wild boar stew and like the rest of us,... More
