I had lunch here recently and was decidedly unimpressed by the food, my main reason to drive from Mantua after reading the reviews. I took the fixed menu for 30 Euros -- perhaps a mistake but it shouldn't have been -- and found the food more overwhelming than delicious. My menu: typical salumi (all very good), maccheroni with cinghiale (only... More

The restaurant is outside of Mantova but worth a detour. It's very unassuming on the outside but it has a charming garden setting where we had our lunch. For 35 euro we had about 6 dishes and I can honestly say that the quantity of food would feed at least 4 people! It's an amazing value for money, even wine... More

Were there as recommended restaurant in Mantova, we purposely made e detour of 30km to go there, really excellent! Service was very careful to any of customer need, suggesting best combination without being pushy on anything. What impressed me was the unusual synchrony of the waiters, serving, caring, attentive, ...not so common in Italy, looks more US-like where it's paid... More

If you are looking for excellent food and service in a restaurant in the middle of nothing in the country side: this is your place. Tortelloni, polenta, meringata: terrific!! I can't find any improvements points.

I was there with my boyfriend last weekend. Atmosphere is nice, especially for a romantic dinner, and service is fast and excellent. We got two pasta dishes and a shared polenta with cheese with 2 glass of wine and a coffee and after-dinner drink and we paid 70 euro, with one little sbrisolona (cake) for free.That in my opinion is...

We had cycled to Trattoria La Stella from Mantova on a warm August day. Even though we hadn't booked and we were obviously not well dressed we were welcomed into this lovely restaurant with a deliciously chilled glass of prosecco. A fabulous start to what was a surprisingly great lunch. My husband and I shared a light chicken salad which... More

Welcoming, nice staff. The atmosphere is relaxing, the food delicious and there are always some seasonal dishes. The attention to the details which you note from the very beginning, with a glass of champagne as a compliment by the Chef. Price/quality is very good. Highly recommend the desserts which are homemade and really worth trying. The place you will want... More

I should say that the chef is really good. However, after getting the first course, we waited 90 minutes to get the following one! We don't know if this is usual there, but our 7 years old daughter fell asleep and we lost completely our appetite. After asking them what was happening to our meal, we got some evasive answers,...
