We made reservations at Parizzi, via email, one month in advance. When we arrived at the restaurant they did not have our reservation. The maître d kept asking me who I sent the email to and all sorts of other details. I eventually had to look up the email on my iphone to get them to believe me. This should... More

I very much liked the interior of the restaurant and the staff were very friendly. Service is a bit lacking and you want them to be around a little bit more. Food was excellent, and showcased parma well!

There were to be four of us for dinner, but one missed out due to a missed train and what she missed! This was the best and most carefully prepared cuisine I had in Parma. Although Chef Marco Parizzi uses traditional Parmesan produce, it was white truffle season in Alba, and to celebrate, I had 3 courses all with white... More

Disappointed with service and deceptive practice. Food was excellent, but not any better then other high end restaurants. Atmosphere had a pleasant sleek modern look-lots of glass. The practice of offering a glass of champagne without asking us to approve the bottle or order, and then charging a high fee seemed deceptive to everyone in the party. When brought to... More

Eight of us, Italians and Americans, dined at Parizzi and enjoyed a delicious meal, beautifully prepared and elegantly presented. On seating us, the waiter offered us each a glass of Champagne. We were not given the menu until somewhat later. On presentation of the bill we saw that the Champagne, which appeared to be gratis, was being charged at 10... More

the moment you walk thru to the restaurant you know you are in for an outstanding experience. This is one of the chicest places i have been in. But not only is it fab inside, the food and staff match the ambiance If your in Parma, don't miss this one..

Food can be better for a Michelin * restaurant. Overall food presentation is excellent, but nothing great on the food. We had the tasting menu, it was quite disappointing when the dishes were served on a single plate and not proportion out into 2x. For this, I rate them low in service level having known they are Michelin 1* star.... More

A very elegant interior with lots of space between the tables. The entrées, main courses and desserts were absolutely superb and the service was excellent. Extensive wine list with bottles priced in all ranges. Total bill including tax and tip was less than any 1-star Michelin restaurant I have previously eaten in.
