Truly WONDERFUL

For a real treat in the world of Italian cuisine you will not be able to find anything to compare to a meal at Parma's. Everything is prepared with loving care and you have the feeling of being made "special" and dinning in an atmosphere where even the bus boys treat you as a valued guest. It is... read more

Me and my husband are obsessed with Parma. Everything is done well from the parmasean cheese and bread to the appetizers, main and desert. We particularly love the pasta trio. That way you can have a variety of pasta. I really can't say enough about Parma. We try to make it there every month or so for date night. The... More

I have been working in marketing and communication for Italian restaurants for a while now in California... Well, I just had the best meal (Elena 's hand made tortelli, ravioli, pappardelle and fettuccine are to die for!) I ever had in this country....actually ... One of the best in my life if I can include my grandma's pasta! Elena's restaurant... More

If this place was in Napa, or SF... it would hold up just fine. My wife and I have eaten here twice with friends and everyone has been impressed. During our last visit the initial seating and service was a little slow, but outside of that, it was a perfect meal. I had a spicey bolonese and it was great.... More

If you want authentic Italian food, Parma is your restaurant. Ive been a number of times and the food and service has always been very good. The food is quite like what you would have if dining in Italy- fresh ingredients, not too heavy ( like you tend to get in many Italian restaurants in the U.S.) and masterfully prepared... More

Made phone reservation. The downside began at the front door, itself an award entrance. Young male wait staff said they had to check for names on the place-settings. There never were any. Took three staff to get us seated. It took THREE requests to get a third menu for us; they kept bringing back the same wine menu. I asked... More

Wonderful meal and a surprisingly reasonable price. We had the chef's choice menu and took the waiter's recommendation on wine. The food and wine could not have been better. The owner and the staff were efficient, gracious, and attentive. We will be back!

High ratings swayed us to try Parma while we were in Fresno. Our experience did NOT concur with better than average scores! The restaurant is in a nice location and the evening allowed for an outdoor dining experience. We were seated promptly... and then... we waited. And waited.... The service was quite a bunch slower than I am accustomed to.... More
