My husband talked his way into this restaurant while I was in the nearby Camera degli Sposi, and I was so glad he did. The food was excellent, the service prompt, and we were the only non-Italians in the place. The proprietor was so gracious. I can't wait to return at night.

Lovely and artsy Osteria right in front of the Palazzo Ducale. Frequented by locals and some tourists. We had no expectations and were truly wowed by the food. Service was excellent and very accommodating. We loved their pastas and main dishes. Excellent wine selection and place is decorated in a very quirky way. Definitely a must try in Mantua.

When you go to Manton you need to go at this place and order the special of the house - Zuccas Ravioli. It's literally the best one in the town.

Sadly,most of Mantova seemed to be closed when we visited recently.Fortunately though,we chose to have lunch here.The food was fresh and very tasty,and having tried a glass of local white wine as suggested by the excellent waiter,we asked for the bottle. At 10 euros it was a bargain.If you're in Mantova,try this place.

Unpretentious looking outside but simple, spacious and stylish inside with well prepared local dishes and friendly, calm and efficient front of house staff. Authentic cooking and and better value than the tourist restaurants on the main piazzas. But limited outside seating.

Lunch was great - Food was outstanding and very reasonable - and portions large (we skipped dinner afterwards) - Not a "fancy" place but good service and food in a very interesting town

This is a young-feeling place with an ambiance of activity and innovation. The food was really good, with some outstanding I dishes - the asparagus cake on Parmesan sauce is one of the best dishes I had - ever!! A good wine list - decent prices and home-baked deserts - this place is an excellent choice for celebration or just... More
