A sensibly short menu. Delicious tortellini. No problem about us sharing one portion. Simple home cooked rabbit and lamb chops. Nothing fancy just a warm welcome and good honest nice food. No outside seating and you could miss the restaurant if you didn't know where it was. Full of locals. Must book on a Saturday. What is the liqueur they... More

This place was recommended to us, and we tried to come here on the first night of our stay in Mantua but were turned away because we didn't have a reservation. So we persisted, and reserved a table for another evening. This was fortunate, as we had an excellent meal here. The food is somewhat rustic, but none the worse... More

Dinner with friends, no reservation so we wait for quite an our. A little difficult reading the menu, because dishes are mixed on a paper without any logical sequence. The waiter perfectly explained and suggested us traditional dishes based on local products. Each dish is very heavy so an appetizer and a first course is enough if you want a... More

Menu not too big and complex, very nice atmosphere, all the dishes were delicious, we asked for the recipe of the sweet/piquant pear preserve which they serve with wedges of parmisan cheese and had a lovely chat. After some really pretentious places in Verona and the Veneto this was a breath of fresh air - and of course, *delicious*.

nice "trattoria" with good local specialties. Antipasto di salumi and risotto al lambrusco were very good (but beware this is heavy stuff). House lambrusco wine is poor, while the house liquor was excellent. Friendly service Friendly service

We had dinner two times at Osteria dell'Oca: good food (peccati di gola, risotto alla pilota, la cremosa Nadia) and friendly atmosphere.

At 40 degrees Celsius having a donkey stew did not seem like a particularly good idea. Instead I went for pasta with pumpkin and sage. Even though a sworn carnivore, I didn't regret tasting this delicious dish. The restaurant's own home made digestive is a definitive must too.

The restaurant is familiar, small and cosy. It's outside the tourist area but well worth it. It is in a walking distance. I tasted the classic "tortelli di zucca al burro e salvia" and its cooking was amazing. The portion was good but I could eat more. The house wine, a Lambrusco di Mantova was also good. To finalize you... More

A friend of mine advised it to me, as it was just a day trip to Mantova for me I visited it and did not look for another option. It has a reputation of a local restaurant serving local food. My impression was: the food was ok, the service less so,..
