This was the best all-around meal I had during my two weeks in Italy! I read about the restaurant in a blog and was excited to experience it for myself. After my experience, I have to say that it surpassed my expectations! Paola, Laura and their family were warm and welcoming. They made my family and I feel like family. The food was plentiful and EXCELLENT, all homemade and typical of Piacenza! We started with a platter of coppa, salami, and pancetta, accompanied by chisolini and giardiniera. Then we were served burtleina and fried fiori di zucca, which were incredible. Then the much anticipated tortelli con la coda, which was the best tortelli I had during my two weeks in Italy (and I spent a lot of time in Piacenza and Parma)! They also served homemade tomato/porcini sauce on the side which was one of the best I ever had. Then, to top it off, we were served the other crown jewel, anolini in brodo. It was to die for. All throughout our meal we drank homemade gutturnio in traditional fashion, which is to drink it from a bowl! Excellent gutturnio which they sell to the public for cheap. Go and buy yourself a few bottles! They also served us a variety of homemade desserts that were all excellent, and which were accompanied by a phenomenal homemade dessert wine. The price was very reasonable because of the superior quality and generous portion sizes. You MUST make the trip here to taste and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed. Thank you to Paola, Laura and your wonderful family for such a great experience!
