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

Came here on my last day in Parma, on my way to the train station (five-minute walk away). Had the tortelli with mashed potato stuffing with cream sauce and porcini, followed by the guancialini braised in Lumbrusco wine and served on polenta. It was wonderful!

Came to this restaurant on the day I was leaving Parma, on my way to the train station (five-minute walk away). It was a wonderful experience! I had the Tortelli with potato fillings, cooked in a cream sauce with porcini mushrooms, followed by guancialini braised in Lumbrusco wine and served on polenta. Both were amazing!

Went for Sunday lunch and had great local food, we live locally and was a first for all my parmigiana friends as well. All pasta dishes were excellent and so was meat. I only give four stars as my first 3 choices of dishes were off, but explained this was because of a busy Saturday night. 2 course and water... More

My wife and Imwere out walking in the morning in Parma and this little Osteria caught our eye. A couple of locals hanging out in the street gave it a good wrap so we went and investigated the menu. We liked the sound of it and then continued on our walk and exploration of Parma. In the early afternoon we... More

We ate here twice while in Parma. Both times every dish ordered was top notch. Super friendly Owner/Chef and his son waiting the tables. It was sublime food. Highly recommended
