This is a must try. It is a small "snack". Staff is very friendly. Food is authentic. The taste is waw! Don't miss this place if you are in Parma. Try the parmesan tarte with artichoke.

When you're in Parma, you NEED to come to this place. Note its not open on a Sunday and make sure you either get here before 12pm or after 2.30pm. Madness but when in Italy! This place is where the locals go to get a sandwich, pizza and other bite sized snacks of heaven. Most people eat just outside the... More

Having read Katonah's review (from New York) on 30 May 2015, I was rather amazed. Having spent a considerable time in New York, along with other major cities in Europe, I thought that I had nailed the best "quick snack bars" . Oh No !!!!! This is the best by a country mile and if anybody, whilst visiting the wonderful... More

Ok, to get your panino you have to wait quite a long time standing up and almost fighting in very chaotic line. But it's totally worth it. The ingredients are superlative and flavours are perfectly balanced!

I suspect that most visitors to Parma would be confused/bemused when entering this extremely popular takeaway. You have to fight your way to the till at the back and then you have to fight your way into the queue which in itself is pretty confusing as the locals will stand 4 abreast as they line up to give their order...

Yummy panini and local food in a street food allure. Great choices and good reasonable price. The seat could be a bit better though

Quite small, this place is crowded every minute of the day. They serve traditional Street food made with local ingredients and it's amazing. The locals come here every day to get a snack or to take the food home. They do not speak english but they try to help you in the best way possible. Instead of a high class... More

A must do in Parma especially for their fish panini and their carciofa. Staff super friendly. Quick service in spite of the long queue. Don't miss the carciofa!

Not to be missed if you visit Parma. Especially on Fridays, where they serve the "misto pesce" that is the mixed fish sandwich, which is indeed superb! The place is very small and it gets really crowded at lunch break, i.e. between 12:30 and 13:30. Staff very friendly. Cost of sandwich: 5 euros!
