Small but perfectly formed

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

We tried this restaurant because of the good reviews but were a little disappointed. The starter platter of meats and cheese was very nice, but your can't really go wrong with that. The bread has hard and inedible, I know Italian bread can be like this but we did have very nice bread in other restaurants. We both then chose... More

Wandering around Parma on a Sunday night we thought we were relegated to takeaway pizza when we found this little gem. The food was amazing, from the reduced balsamic vinegar served with the Parmesan, to the delicious risotto and pasta and the excellent wine. All of this for low prices! Definitely worth a visit.

Found this quaint "family" restaurant and what a great meal and ambiance. To add the proverbial icing to the cake, I forgot to take my credit card upon paying. The front desk at my hotel called and said the owner dropped it off. How he found the hotel I was at and taking the time to do so was unbelievable.... More
