We happen to be in Fresno at lunch time from Los Angeles, so , we stopped by Parma. The pat ion was nice, but we decided to sit inside as it was kind of hot outside. We ordered from their lunch menu. Very reasonable and more than enough. I had the appetizer Pasta, then the chicken breast. The Pasta was... More

What a gem! Wonderful service and ambiance! One of the most delightful restaurant experiences outside of Italy! I ordered the fixed price option which included appetizers and a 3 pasta sampler. My husband ordered his own entree of a veal filled pasta with sage and butter and we shared the appetizer plate that came with mine. My favorite appetizer was... More

Spending a Thursday night in Fresno and looking for a good restaurant, we stumbled upon Parma. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect to find this good a restaurant in Fresno. Dining room and patio are nicely decorated with the feel of Italy. Very good service, limited, but decent wine list. I had the pasta bolognese in a spicy... More

Went with friends who like it there. Place was medium busy, we went early, and after ordering it took over an hour to get our food. Watched the chefs, very slow motion(i have restaurant experience), go faster! My lasagna was very dry, obviously sat under a warmer or in the oven too long; taste was average. One person had chicken,... More

Very good food. Yelp gives this restaurant four stars, but I do not think it gives it justice. My wife did not think much of pumpkin raviolis but she tasted them at Parma she thought they were excellent. Deserts such as raspberry mousse are out of this world. I highly recommend this Restaurant if you are in Fresno.

After a day in the mountains, we struck upon this by accident. Dressed for the mountains, we were nonetheless treated like dignitaries. It was quite busy, but we felt like we were the only customers- the staff and the owner Elena were highly attentive and gracious. We've eaten in many places in Italy and only one rivaled Parma. It was... More

I visit my family in Fresno often throughout the year and I make my sister bring me here on every visit. This is absolutely my favorite Italian food and I wish they would open a franchise. We always order one of the combination plates at lunch and share so we can have a dessert to enjoy after. I haven't had... More

Came here for Saturday early dinner. Immediately loved the place. They are serious about fine dining. No pretense, no show, just great food and excellent staff. We just moved to Fresno from New York/New Jersey and were really missing Italian fare back east. While a bit pricey, the ambience and the food made us feel like this is the real... More

Parma is a highly awarded fine dining restaurant and they deserve all the awards they have received. From the greeting at the door by the owner to the goodbye and thank you it is a top notch all the way. The wine list is extensive and has many Italian choices. The menu is set up by course and there are... More
