Great pasta, good service, reasonable prices

Very friendly and informative. Good prices. Main course could have used some more salt and flavour, however the antipasta and thepasta were spectacular!

Checked this place out on Trip Advisor and the reviews were great so we thought we would give it a go. SO glad we did. Really doesn't look like much from outside but this place is well worth a visit.

Although the restaurant is situated in an alley, without sea view, you should go! Service and politeness are a 10 out of 10 Food is fabulous And they have a changing table for baby's in the lady's room. We definitely come back again

The title "Osteria" means that location and food want to be in line with the tradition of the place, with its history and culture and customers look for popular foods. In reality the location is inspired to contemporary design and the food is tasty and sophisticated but very far from the tradition of the place. Changing the title would help... More

I was here on Thursday last week. I saw the reviews at TripAdvisor and everything what is written is right. The waitress didn't speak English that well, but she did a great job to explain the menu to me. Too bad it wasn't that busy, but I had a great dinner and if you are in Lovere, go there for... More

This restaurant is unique. I had risotto with fish and chocolate. It sounds weird but it was a great combination. I loved it! They give great advice on the wine and food and it is a great ambiance.

Loved this place - went based on Tripadvsior reviews and so glad we did. It was empty when we went (off season and at 7pm) but this didn't detract from anything. They had an English version of the menu which was very helpful, and the dessert menu changes everyday based on the ingredients they have. We had a spaghetti dish... More

Parol doesn't look like much from the outside -- a few tables on an alley. But the inside is charming and the owner is very personable. The food is excellent at reasonable prices. The best place we found to eat in Lovere.

A must visit restaurant in Lovere. We were made very very welcome by a lovely family. A magnum of red wine helped the evening and the food was amazing. We will be regular diners!

The food was spectacular, we skipped the appetizers and the first course because the meat and fish dishes looked so appetizing. On a suggestion of the owner we took a bottle of white wine, pork with porcini mushrooms and a plate of small fried fish. They were both so good we could not decide who had taken the better meal!...
