“Very good all round, but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Pleasantly surprised by quality of the food, good serving staff and nice friendly atmosphere. Interesting and different menu to the usual Italian restaurants. Pasta meals were good sized servings, but fish meals portion sizes were a bit small. Prices are steep, especially for steaks and fish. Sides are expensive. Calamari appetizer was good, but $12.50 is way too much. Overall a good experience in spite of the cost which worked out to about $75 each for dinner, wine and a drink.

“Rustic Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The service was shaky in the beginning but once we were greeted everything went smooth. The the tuna was a great starter. This was my second visit and I was looking forward to the Wednesday Pork special and again they had just run out. You would think since this is so popular they would increase the number of serving they offer.. But the Italian pot roast was very good!! We also had the beet salad which was interesting. The bread was very good and they have a nice wine list.

“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

If you'd like a delicious italian meal (and don't skip dessert because they are phenomenal) with a relaxed but beautiful atmosphere and fabulous service, get to Parma now. We have never been disappointed regardless of what we've ordered. The staff is so welcoming and wonderful you'll never want to leave!

“Excellent service, amazing food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We met friends at Parma for dinner. It had great atmosphere and the food was awesome! There was live music later in the evening as well! The prices were appropriate for this upscale restaurant! If you like Italian food, you must try Parma!
