Very nice and cozy restaurant and great food

Had a recommendation and made a reservation. Four of us. Level of English was good. I would recommend the pastas - all were great. The person who helped us (owner? waitress) was very helpful in deciding on dishes.

This is a very cosy and authentic osteria, located a bit beyond the Duomo well worth the walk from the station on the opposite side of the city. On arrival without a reservation we four hungry travellers stumbled into the restaurant. It was a quiet Thursday evening with perhaps only two other tables occupied. Our host appeared initial forbidding but... More

The menu was only in Italian, and owner kindly explained it in English and recommended some typical local dishes. Everything was yummy. Our hotel staff recommended it as one his favorites for quality and price--and we can see why.

Lunch at Tre Porcellini (Three Little Pigs) in Parma Our group of 25 met here on a Wednesday after a walking tour of Parma. This little pig’s house was made of red brick. As usual, we ate our main meal at 1 p.m. I don’t know about prices here because our organizers had selected the menu and all meals were... More

I went here by myself and the staff was very friendly. The food was nice, for me a little bit to much, with the primo and secundo. It had a great atmosphere and nice wine. I would recommend it!

We were also a little bit disappointed by the food. The service was friendly, but the food only average. With so many other delightful restaurants in Parma, I don't think I would go back to Tre Porcellini.

We labored long and hard over the decision of where to eat our first night in Italy and the city of Parma. Many restaurants were closed because it was August. We passed on the recommendations from the hotel and went instead with the good impression of this Osteria on Trip Advisor. It was just a gut feel. Unfortunately, that feeling... More

Best value for the money and the owner makes you feel at home. Best homemade pasta, exceptionnel home bread with specalmolive olive. Warm reception from the owner, he explain in english very the menu, which is traditional from Parma. A must if you visit Parma.

This osteria has a good homey feel. They let us mix antipasti, ending up with a generous plate of the sweetest, freshest prosciutto di Parma one could imagine (were one imagining ham) and the salame felino that hangs tantalisingly in the shops around the region. A maltagliata pasta with a creamy sauce of taleggio and truffle was a ripper (that... More
