Great lunch!

Had a wonderful lunch in this cosy restaurant. Very professional staff and some great italian non-touristic dishes. Loved it! Would return anytime.

Lunch was great - Food was outstanding and very reasonable - and portions large (we skipped dinner afterwards) - Not a "fancy" place but good service and food in a very interesting town

This is a young-feeling place with an ambiance of activity and innovation. The food was really good, with some outstanding I dishes - the asparagus cake on Parmesan sauce is one of the best dishes I had - ever!! A good wine list - decent prices and home-baked deserts - this place is an excellent choice for celebration or just... More

They often say to stay far from the turists'traps, that is to say all the restaurants around the main turists' destinations...ALMOST always ! This "osteria" is really worhty : pretty large, nice service, good and traditional menu (be patient, the "chef" cooks fresh food !) : I had a wonderful pumpkin soup (pumpkin is typical from this area) as "antipasto",...

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
