Parma has many restaurants and we visited this establishment post match. The staff were friendly and efficient and accommodated English speaking customers. Food was average Italian food at a reasonable price. Good facility for big groups

The restaurant is just in a central position; we entered after hesitating for a while, as it didn't look like a true restaurant. We must say it wasn't a bad choice: nice service, good pizzas for our kids, and pasta was good as well (we tasted some degustations). Excellent prosciutto, indeed. At the end, maybe not a first choice restaurant,... More

We were on a bit of a pub crawl and this is where we spent most of our time. The drinks were good, great atmosphere, and a great place to watch the constant fashion parade walking past. The barmaid also gave us a free round as a thank you. Now that's how to look after you customers!

Decided to try this restaurant because it had outside seating and was in a busy part of the city. We choose Parma ham with Parmesan cheese; very good, followed by spaghetti vongole and seafood pasta; both excellent. Finished with a coffee and lemoncello. Overall very good but the waiter was a little disinterested and went through the motions without a... More

Located in the heart of the late night food and drinking street Dolcevita is situated right on the street with lots of outdoor tables. We went back twice as the parma ham starter plate for two was just delicious. Highly recommend the pumpkin ravioli too! Big wine selection to choose from.

A good standard bar that serves good pizza and other basic dishes. Free extensive nibbles if you buy a drink - including pizza slices usually available.

Initially, we weren't sure that we could eat here as it resembles a bar from the outside. However, we're really glad we did! The food was really delicious and reasonably priced. We ordered the regional specialties of Parmesan, Prosciutto, local white wine, and filled pasta. All of our dishes were delicious. Furthermore, the service was great. We would go back... More

The place looks like a tourist trap in the busiest road of the city centre (nobody spoke Italian around us) but the pizzas were actually really good and the prices absolutely reasonable given the location (15e for pizza & large beer)

Twice the normal price for a classic Italian drink. Even in Venice it's cheaper. Service and food quality is fair. Better avoid this place.

It is a nice place to sit and enjoy in a beautiful day. They have good coffee and beer and also free snacks - degustation. Acceptable prices and friendly waiters.
