A hidden gem tucked away in a middle-class residential neighborhood outside Parma city center, but worth a side trip! It is well-run by a local father-and-son team, providing the clientele with Michelin-star level cuisine, inventive dishes and impeccably friendly service. Mostly business people and locals coming for lunch, dinnertime can be quite busy The wines are great as well, and free parking is abundant.

We visited Al Tramezzo on our holidays last year when we visited Parma for a couple of days. This was the first Michelin starred placed we've visited in the country, and so expectations were naturally highly, particularly after a great meal elsewhere the night before.

The biggest positive was the service. It was as excellent as you would expect, and included fantastic bread, a pre-starter and little pastries and chocolates at the end of the meal.

The rest of the dishes, with one exception to come, all were very good. Presentation made you want to dive in and eat, portions were generous and they tasted delicious. The risottos were rich and filling, and the seafood was fresh and well-seasoned. The tobacco ice cream on my dessert was the one part of the meal that was truly memorable and noteworthy. Both unique and something I would love to eat again, served alongside a rum mille-feuille and chocolate.

Unfortunately, my meat course was a real disappointment. It was a breaded cutlet with truffle, green beans and mashed potato; and it was exactly that for better or worse. There was no twist here or inspiration. The cutlet was very dry, the truffle flavour was lacking, the green beans were overdone and the mash wasn't anything special either. This dish really stood out compared to the rest of what we served and not in a good way.

For the price and reputation, I would expect everything to be perfect or at least to an accomplished standard, but one of the main courses sadly fell short of this and the general trend for the meal was one of very good, but not being truly outstanding. That aside, this is still a very good choice for fine dining.

As a final note, I could have done without the anachronism of women being given menus without prices, but it was not the only place in Parma guilty of this.

Drove through Parma as part of a road trip through Italy. Came across Al Tramezzo since it was the only restaurant still open mid day. The food local to Parma was great. The staff was very welcoming and took the time to explain all dishes. They also provided suggestions for stores to buy cheese and meets. Lastly, some great advice to help with our road trip.

Excellent quality gourmet food, the best for me is a lemon ice cream with drops of a really aged balsamic vinegar. Anyway food is excellent. A bit on the expensive side. Ideal place for business lunch or dinner
