This restaurant is a real find. It is small and cosy, out of the hustle of the main pedestrian area. Parking is a bit of a problem, but this place is well worth the trouble. The food is extraordinarily good, using fresh ideas and, of course ingredients, it has just that extra something. The wine list is good and the service is friendly and professional at the same time.
My only, very slight, niggle, is that there is something a little sterile about the atmosphere. But overall a fantastic evening out.

This place features deservedly in many guides to restaurants in Italy, but I hadn't noticed that until I stumbled through the door with a group of colleagues while in Parma for a brief business meeting - and saw some of the guides on display inside. Hidden away in the side streets, it is a small, family-run establishment, which offers a limited menu of interesting dishes, all well prepared, and a good, short list of well chosen wines (and grappa), all at very reasonable prices. Don't be put off by the down-market 'Osteria' title; this one is well worth a visit - or two!
