Leisurely lunch in Mantua! Fantastic service! tortellini de zucca ((pumpkin) and maccheroni with horse did not disappoint. Bottle of Lugana perfect accompaniment. Wooed into trying the house tiramisu. Wow!

We arrived in Mantova on a Tuesday and spent a lovely afternoon walking the historical centre, as usual looking at prospectful restaurants to later visit. Whilst the a lot of eateries were on offer, the Antica Hosteria stood out with some interesting dishes and very reasonable prices. We returned in the evening and joined a small group of patrons which... More

We have been there for lunch. The place is typical and nice, the service is good, as well. But the food was just disappointing. We had mixed cold cuts, mixed cheese with mostarda and first course. The starters portions were really small. The first courses were too ordinary for a historical trattoria. The bread was so old that we couldn't... More

Arrived in mantua on a Monday and lots of restaurants were closed. This restaurant served regional dishes at a modest cost & a nice bottle of chianti. Only downside was those who came in around 8pm and later, had to wait to be served, as there was only one waiter who was rushed off his feet and still smiled!

Highly recommended. Try their Tortelli alla Zucca and their soup with agnolotti. Not expensive at all and a very nice familiar atmosphere. 5 stars

A friendly small trattoria run by a husband and wife, with local dishes a speciality including tortelli de zuca (pumpkin ravioli), stracotto del cavello (horse stew) and luccio en salsa (pike in sauce), all of which we tried on our two visits. The mixed steamed vegetables were wonderful and very generous, the house wine good and the bill very reasonable.

Little trattoria right in the centre of Mantova but on a quiet little side street. Food from a short menu but well prepared and at reasonable prices. 1/2 liter of housewine for 7 EUR is ok. We went three times and liked the place and its food and service. Frequented by lots of locals which is a good sign.

No frills little trattoria apparently run by one man right in the centre of Mantova but on a quiet little side street. Simple food from a short menu but well prepared, with a reasonably priced wine list. Antipasto, scallopine and cotletta were all good, and with a bottle of wine, two coffees and grappa came to around eu40. This place... More

We were in Mantova with our son and his wife for four days in September. Our guide, Daniele Lucchini, recommended Trattoria Leoncino Rosso as having the best local cuisine so we tried it out on our first night in Mantova. It was so good that after trying out a couple of other restaurants we all agreed that we wanted to... More
