Most friendly services provided in a secluded an serene garden (no musquitos !!). wine to match the plates was served with the best choices of prepared fish and meat this evening. All accompanied...

the menu' was pretty average. Quality of dishes was ok but nothing special. Considering the price point, we are well below the expectations. The traditional local dumplings were very far from how they should be made (try some other local restaurants in order to degustate them..). The wine list was the best thing with a wide range of different wines... More

I have traveled the world and eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world. This restaurant was recommended to us. When I called I asked if they serve vegan food and they said yes they do. When we arrived we went through a beautiful garden and upon entering we were brought upstairs into the dining room. Zero ambience... More

I went here on my last night in Reggio Emilia and am so glad I did. The outdoor seating area was absolutely beautiful. The service was wonderful - the chef's wife gave me great recommendations (potato puree with scampi starter, tortelli primi with parmigiano foam, pork and tuna main, cherry dessert with ice cream). The bread was sliced fresh and... More

Situated next to MaxMara in a little courtyard is this wonderful gem. Our group of seven went during lunch and everyone had the set meal. I had the tagliatelle with veggies. The sauce was light and the pasta was definitely freshly made. Upon seeing another table with a salad, we decided to order one too. It had tuna, chickpeas, tomatoes,... More

We had our first meal here on a warm day and were delighted to find lovely outdoor seating in a garden tucked away at the end of a cool alley off the main shopping street. The indoor seating was spacious and airy with two floors, elegantly decorated. We all were in the mood to try a regional dish -- tortelli... More

We visited this restaurant as collectors of Buon Ricordo plates and this restaurant is a recent addition to this group. The restaurant is found down an alleyway off the main street, which opens into a beautiful internal courtyard where you can dine in the warmer months. We ate in the inside area which was tastefully decorated. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

This place is lovely on all counts. Great service, fabulous food. I've eaten here serveral times over the last 10 years and now that it has a new chef it's better than ever. Went twice on my last trip to Reggio and had both divine pasta, delish fish and heavenly polenta with gorgonzola cream. Not to be missed.
