An amazing establishment that manages to tick just about all the boxes.

We first visited in late 2008 the day after our dreadful experience in La Locanda delle Grazie, Curtatone (see separate review). That Sunday Caffe La Crepa treated us with great kindness and we have returned on several occasions (with dog) to enjoy their excellent food. It is a rather amazing... read more

This is an establishment it would be difficult to chance upon, off the main Mantova-Cremona road in the small town of Isola Dovarese. A gem! Sited on the corner of the main square, it is clearly the haunt of many locals and well frequented on a pleasant, sunny Saturday midday. We enjoyed local fresh sturgeon and guinea fowl in a... More

Sunday lunch with friends, traditional Italian food, some recipes I had never come across before all using local produce and game, all well presented by friendly staff. Beautiful setting in a village square where you can relax after lunch and watch the world go by.

We had pretty much the perfect lunch at La Crepa. A series of atmospheric rooms, all full of happy eaters: I think we were the only non-Italians. Delicious antipasto followed by several pasta dishes: marubini in brodo, a wild herb risotto and tortelli di zucca. Then pudding. All of it introduced by the expert and hyper-enthusiastic nephew of the chef,... More

This restaurant in a tiny, picturesque village on the Lombardy/Emilia-Romagna border. We originally found it via the Gambero Rosso guide while attending an annual party thrown by a friend who is lucky enough to be from a village nearby, then returned while attending his wedding. It is DEFINITELY worth a detour off the A21 or from Cremona. The food is... More

We were travelling from one meeting in Castel Goffredo to another in Pizzighettone. Just coincidentially we happenned to stop in this village. There are only two restaurants. One is closed. So we were forced to go to La Crepa. It turns out that it was an old and famous place both for locals and visitors from other towns. They are... More

What a great place! Excellent food and great service. The restaurant 'breathes' the love for food and wine. The sommelier is great! The way he describes a wine, makes you want to try it at once!!

The place serves excellent food, does have a great choice of wines but nevertheless has not lost it's charm for locals for whom it still is a watering hole. The owner's manage to cover this immense gap with style. Albeit having arrived well beyond the usual dinner time we hot a great dinner. We had great dinner inside and on... More

In this area there are alot of nice little restaurants. We were brought here by a friend who knows the restaurants in the area well. I had a sweet bitter eel for appetizer, fresh water fish with vegetable as the second course and a semifreddo for dessert. Everything was very good. The service was impeccable as well.

This trattoria is worth a loooooong trip. The food is first class, the al fresco dining is comfortable, the service very helpful, the wine excellent and not expensive at all. All in all, divine.
