We were lost getting to lunch in Parma at a trattoria we found in Tripadvisor. We wanted typical Parma food but it was 230pm already and we might be out in the cold if we didin't find something quick. On a whim, we found Parizzi on our GPS so we were pleasantly surprised they took us in when we showed up without a reservation. The decor was warm, contemporary and it was full except our table. We ordered quickly a trio of Parma Prosciutto followed by entrees from their Piatti Tipici Parmagiani section. Our mains arrived while we were comparing the different aged prosciutto (24, 30 and 44 months) chased down with a beautiful Petrolo Galatrona 2001. Punta di vitello ripiena alla parmigiana was excellent as the veal paillard was moist inside and slightly crispy outside. It was garnished with roasted potatoes and veggies. Spiedino di stracotto di manzo, the beef stew in red wine sauce, was slow cooked to perfection, moist and melts in your mouth. Tavola d’arte was the "table Art" for dessert that we could not resist and what a magnificent ending: it was almost too beautiful in the arrangement to desecrate it by sinking our folks and spoons in. This being Parma, the maitre'd offered us free taste of tiny wedges of parmagian cheeses. We don't care if they ever get promoted to 2 star Michelin because this was just superlative at a very decent price. We will be back each time we pass through here.
