I was guided by reviewers to choose the onion tart with parmesan ice cream and then the black rice with scallops. Both dishes were excellent. There were cut up scallops with their coral in the rice dish--I would have liked a bit more of the scallops because they were so good, but the focus was on the black rice. My... More

Several blocks north of the Piazza Roma, nearly out of view in the rear of a courtyard. We were seated in the back room, which is more stately and somewhat less relaxed than the room next door. The food was generally excellent. Come here for the food: the riso nero, black rice with scallops and saffron sauce, was delicious, as... More

Hosteria 700 is tucked away in the corner of a charming little square. The ambience in this restaurant is really lovely. You pass by the kitchen on the way into the dining room which is usually a good sign. The interior has a beautiful painted ceiling, large windows with lovely old shutters etc. The menu is reassuringly small. The service... More

We ate here on our first night in Cremona. Food is top notch and excellent value for the food offered. I had the black rice which is to die for. Also to mention the excellent and professional service offered in this restaurant. Totally recommended.

entering through a little door in a tiny square expectations are immediately surpassed as one moves past the kitchen through the reception filled with just made drying pasta; fresh and some wacky (cocoa) tagliolini, the typical marubini (fat tortellini filled with very firm chicken, veal, pork & salami balls). Seated in the neo-baroque red room eating delicious locally produced breadsticks... More

Introduced to this spot by locals, we entered completely oblivious to the amazing experience we were about to have. Presented with a menu for the ladies(sans pricing) I was torn between many dishes. The crostini muse was a harbinger of delights to come. Bread served in a foot high champagne glasss was novel, but the Gorgonzola, white truffle cream rissoto... More

We stayed in town for four days, so had a chance to sample a number of restaurants. We came to this one because my Italian business colleague recommended it. Luckily, he brought us there because we might not have found it -- tucked away in the corner of what looked like a parking lot, it was quite unobtrusive. But once... More

We came based on reviews and will gladly return. Though hidden from the city's main once you enter you're in for a treat as you are seated in beautifully decorated room. The food was delicious, we had the appetizer from the house, 2 primi and a selection of local cheeses. The restaurant was full, but service was attentive. The only... More

The evening we ate ate Osteria 700, we were the only individual diners. There were two large parties in each of two adjacent rooms, whilst we were alone in a badly lit room between them. The primi were good - my risotto was delicious. The secondi (Veal in my case) were also good, but I could not finish it as... More
