I have been coming here for years. When you walk in you think you have gone back in time to the sixties or very early 70es. Here they don't change menu . You come here because you want the local stuff and the best of it. So every bite is a "mmmmhhh" of pleasure. Starting from the mortadella and ciccioli,... More

This restaurant is step back in time. Old fashioned home made traditional food from Reggio Emilia. There is a roasted meat trolley that is fantastic and their tortellini in brodo is excellent. Good good good value. The waiters look like they were here when the place first opened.

If you are in Reggio Emilia and you want to taste real home Made food of the local tradition , ristorante Canossa is a must. Tortelli , lasagne, tagliatelle are made following the old recipes of aunties and grandmothers. The roasted meat is delicious and the "bolliti" are gorgeous . Even if you have had enough don' t go without... More

If you happen to be at Reggia Emilia you can't miss this place. It isn't fancy at all..! Who cares!! The food is great! Starting with the antipasti de Formaggio & Prossciutto...! (Ham and cheese) and following with then spinach ravioli with butter and Grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Unforgettable!!!

Menu looked great. We ordered off it and were then told you could only have the boiled mest from the trolley. When they said boiled meat they meant it. Truly awful and over priced. Avoid on a Sunday.

As an adult group of five, this was one of our favorite restaurants on our trip. The pasta was perfect, those who had the steak raved about it and my sister fell in love with her cream puffs!

Made welcome, salads prepared from trolley for you but the best is the trolley of meats, all beautifully cooked. Wine was Lambrusco, of course. Lots of locals, but we were made welcome and every effort was made to overcome language barrier and explain it to us.

I visit every other year and never miss a chance to have lunch at Canossa. I've come on hectic weekends and quiet weekdays. It doesn't matter, the service is always kind, straightforward and unhurried but prompt. The food is made by grandmas in the kitchen and served by uncles in the dining room. Today I had tortelli verde and selections... More
