We were lucky to have a reservation on the terrace. The service is really excellent and the menu shows very good local dishes, The winelist is close to perfect. We spent a most wonderful evening heren, getting more happy after every next plate.

We went here our first night in Parma Great choice. We started with a caprese. The three mains were the tortelli sampler (three types) , the basic spaghetti pomodoro e basilico and the duchessa Di Parma all thre were outstanding and flavourful. Topped it off with cannoli siciliani and a millefoglie. All were wonderful. Highly recommend

This is an excellent restaurant. Upscale but relaxed, prompt and friendly service, very good food and reasonable price. My starter of carpaccio di polpo was wonderful, as was the seafood pasta. My friend was slightly less convinced by his fish roulade but everything was very fresh and nicely presented.

What I can't forget about this meal was how the waiter initially thought we ordered a lot for two girls but we surprised her by finishing everything :) When in Parma, you have to eat Culatello and so that's the first thing we ordered. Then came the steak, Duchessa di Parma and spaghetti pomodoro which we requested to be served... More

An all round exceptional experience. The quality of my food was extremely high. I started with a plate of culatello and followed with seafood pasta. Both dishes were simple and the quality of the ingredients and the cooking shone through. I took the waitresses recommendation on wine - a Sauvignon Blanc - also very good.

One of the best meals we had during our entire trip of Italy. Food was just amazing. The pumpkin stuffed ravioli was to absolutely die for. The staff was incredible and helpful. We had a very romantic, enjoyable night. I would recommend reservations as it fills up quickly.
