Elegant but not pretentious fixed price lunch

In Piacenza for the first time, and this lunch was the centerpiece of the visit. We had heard about this restaurant for years and determined to eat there. This was a reasonable fine dining experience. Food, service and ambiance all combine well.

We went here because of the mixture of high and low ratings. I wanted to see for myself and, at least on the night I was there, the low reviews more accurately represented the food and service we got. The food was mediocre and the service was sloppy and inattentive. Add a high price and you get a restaurant we... More

We were in Piacenza for a wedding & were recommended this restaurant in a clothes shop. Loved the decor (high ceilings & great little led lights on each table), the small menu, the good service .... It is not an area with tourists so felt we had discovered a hidden gem - my glance at Trip Advisor for hotels and... More

We went to this restaurant after reading "excellent" reviews on this page. The place is totally overrated: the glasses were dusty. the food was expensive for italian standards and the wine was unimpressive. We would have been happier in a simple street diner. We paid 130 euros for two people including 1 glass of wine each.

Very good atmosphere, excellent service and amazing dishes. This restaurant means Quality! You can't pass from Piacenza without having a good lunch or dinner at this place with Camillo Giacomo and Francesco.

Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Worthy of its Michelin star. Staff was wonderful and our meal exquisite. The lunch menu is very affordable. It included starter, main course, desert, wine, mineral water and coffee for only Euros 30 -- an amazing price for a Michelin restaurant.

This is an amazing little restaurant tucked away in the centre of town. We had the set menus and were blown away with the quality of the food and service. Note, wine can be a little on the pricey side but they do serve it by the glass.

I ate at this restaurant with a group of colleagues. Our meal was an evening dinner and I have to say that it was faultless. Service, Atmosphere, Presntation and Taste - all excellent. You certainly will not be disappointed BUT its not cheap - ours was circa 100€ per head with wines.

This stylish restaurant has a limited choice lunch menu, but the quality of the dishes makes it a favourite with locals who want a stylish business lunch that does not take up too much time. A pasta, a chicken dish and a light dessert do not seem to qualify for a gourmet top experience, but in this restaurant they absolutely... More
