I traveled to Fresno for a business trip in 2009 and ate at this delightful restaurant with colleagues. The owner personally walked us through the menu and treated us like family. Six years later I am back - this time with my family. It is a testament to how great the food is that I remembered... read more

If you want authentic Italian food, handmade pasta, rolled out fresh everyday, this is the place for you. Elaina is there each night with her attentive waiters to take care of your needs. Everything is delicious; I've never had anything I didn't like at Parma's. The patio is a beautiful place to dine in the evenings, also quieter for a... More

Excellent food and service! Lots of special personal touches from a local owner who is hands on in every aspect of the restaurant. Elaina visits each table to be sure her customers are happy and well taken care of. All pastas and made fresh there and the still is authentic Parma Italy! I've never had a dish that wasn't excellent!... More

How do you rate a highly rated restaurant that you really looked forward to dining at that really let you down. Hopefully to return and overprint our experience. We had made reservations and choose a table outside on a balmy Fresno Sat. evening. Scott, our waiter greeted us with the menu and suggested a lovely bottle of wine. Not having... More

There is nothing like it - everything is make from sratch and the salads taste like they just came fresh from the garden. The staff are wonderful and make you feel like you are the only one in the restaurant. This is a great place for a romantic dinner, or a night out with the girls. I have dined at... More

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 my favorite... 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
