Welcoming Family run Bistro, great food & good wines

Found this by chance. Visited 3 evenings on our 5 night stay in Parma. Highly recommended. Tried 3 different Italian red wines, all very good at 15 or 16 Euros a bottle, far better quality than you might expect at the price. Only a small bistro, approx. 20 places.

Six tables. The husband cooks and the wife is the server. Excellent local specialties. They also offer a nice selection of fresh seafood. Everything prepared with care, from beautiful salads and grilled vegetables to pork scallopine with a choice of sauces, a lovely mixed grill and well done mussels and swordfish. Nice wine list. A very complete meal for four,... More

We thought we would check this place out due to the proximity to our hotel and the reviews on trip advisor and we were blown away. I could go on and on about each course, the wine, the Balsamico, the service, but I won't. If you visit Parma and don't eat here you are missing out on a wonderful experience.

I went back to this restaurant last week with a small work-group, previously I have been there with my wife. It is small (6 tables I think), but it definitely punches well above it's weight, hospitality, presentation, flavours and wine are all outstanding. I will be back.

We've lived in Italy for 3 years and stumbled across this little gem for lunch one Sunday. Our family of 5 all order pasta. Restaurant speciality appears to be tortelli. I had the tortelli with chards and butter parmesan, others had tortelli with fungi, tortelli with bologna sausage. We also had a dish of gnochhi with cheese and a plain... More

This little family-run restaurant is not far from the railway station. I started my meal with the best tomato bruschetta I've ever eaten while my husband chose a local cheese served with honey and candied fruits - equally good. Our veal with creamy porcini sauce was not to the same standard as the starters but the price was very modest.... More

L'Oca Nera is a small restaurant downtown Parma. The building and the dinning room are not very attractive but you can taste Italian food of good quality for an average cost (according to the standards in Parma, which is quite an expansive city). As the restaurant is small, it is advisable to book before coming, expecially if you are coming... More

A treat at every table, diners at Osteria l’Oca Nera get to sample amazing homemade Aceto Balsamico, prepared Parma style, aged for a minimum of 12 years. Any foodie passing through Parma should make it a point to sample this delicacy which will surely put you off the generic balsamic vinegar found at your average grocers. We were surprised to...

Small restaurant with Italian style food. It looks nice, it smells nice and it tatstes definitely good. A little bit expensive, but Parma is an expensive town.

What a fabulous little local, family restaurant! Great menu with a nice varied selection that we have seldom seen on our three weeks in Italy. We started with a nice plate of bruchettas as an antipasti. One was tomato, another prosciutto and the other a pickled vegetable. The waiter put a bottle of thick basalmic vinegar on the table that... More
