Three of us had some sort of pasta and were rewarded with e great plate of food. My wife ordered the veal but this was a dissapointment.

Went with another couple and waited for an hour for order and then one of the orders was wrong. If fairness, there was a large party being served. Owner acknowledged several tables, but never ours.

By far the best Italian restaurant in Fresno. Northern Italian cuisine at its finest. The service is wonderful. A great place for a romantic dinner for two or for a large family gathering.

A colleague and I were in Fresno for business. After finding Parma on Yelp/Trip Advisor and reading the reviews, we were surprised to turn in what appeared to be a business park. Upon locating Parma in the back corner, we were delighted with a the handful of restaurants with lovely al fresco dining. I loved sitting outside under the wisteria... More

There is nothing in Fresno that matches a dinner at Parma! The service is superb, the wine selection excellent and the food is divine. Whether on the prix fixe dinners or a la carte, you can't miss. My wife and I have been dining here since the restaurant first opened and have never been disappointed. It is defeinitely perfect for... More

We love going to this restaurant. The food is very authentic as the owner Elena is from the Parma region and has chefs from that area come and cook. We love the mixed grill plate. A serving of chicken, lamb, beef and sausage all on one plate. The Spinach Parma is to die for. The antipasti plate is also excellent.... More

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 Parma and the owner... 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
