Good food and friendly staff (including a bilingual waitress) in an attractive little restaurant at the far end of Piazza Sordello. Though the staff were struggling to cope a little bit on the night we were there, but then, in Italy, there's no need to hurry your meal...[Still giving 'very good' rating for service.]

Another fine meal. A lunch this time in beautiful Mantova, just next to the square with the Palazzo Ducale. Excellent and friendly service. Delightful chicken salad with apples,dried apricots, raisins with balsamic dressing, followed by a pasta with prawns, pistachios and tomato - excellent. The restaurant is beautiful and the Lambrusco great. Our third vist; looking forward to a fourth.

Inspecting the menu of this osteria I discovered that they had tench on the menu. A fish I had only tasted once before. I was under pressure regards time and they were most obliging and fitted me in despite being very busy. Staff were very pleasant. The dish of mashed potato and smoked tench was simple but tasty fare.

In a city full of restaurants for tourists (in the negative sense of the word) this place is distinguished by the quality of raw materials and their preparation Traditional cuisine and not only excellent value for money, superb location, courteous and prepared staff. Do not miss the pumpkin tortelli (typical dish Mantua) are also excellent preparations of the chef's imagination.

We had another dinner at this excellent restaurant just off the square in front of the Palazzo Ducale in Mantova (Mantua, in English). The food is typical for the region, very well prepared and delicious. The wine list is extensive, but the real stars, as usual, are local wines, expecially Lambrusco. This wine, usually overly fizzy and sweet, is actually... More

Good price. Food is also good. Have many choices of Mantua dishes. Ham is the best I've had in the past few days. Also they have Mantua sparkling wine. This is my first time to drink a purple sparkling wine.

We were a party of five people (two Americans, two Britons and an Italian) and we had a nice dinner here. Our tour guide told us that this is the only real Restaurant in Piazza Soredello (all the others are just bars offering microwaved pre-cooked meals). Since we wanted a real dinner, we booked here and everything was nice. The... More

We had a truly outstanding lunch in this restaurant. The service was polite and friendly, the value for money excellent and the food was extremely memorable. Pasta with radicchio cream and smoked fish is recommended! The view from the window table onto the piazza was also lovely.

We wre just one night in Mantua. Stroling around in the old town center we passed a lot of tourist places which looked quite nice and I almost wanted to go there instead of following the recommendation of the owner of our B&B (see my recommendation for Residenza la Villa). But waiters tried to catch us by "get the apperitivo... More
