I've been here with grlfriend and i was looking for a nice and home food to eat, must say i was looking forward to have lunch in this place. The starter (for 1 person) was a good quality as expected for the area, the pasta was not at the level i would expect, dry and no butter in the plate or any sauce, was tasteless.
The main course (faraona and Nodino), absolutely tasteless and to be honest the faraona was overcooked and cooked at least 2 days before, same as the patate a forno they were dry and tasteless. in conclusion i would not go to this place again and if you are looking for a good home food, this is not the place. price. medium / high

Best restaurant, nice staff and lovely environment.
You have to try gnocchi with cream and red onions, they are delicious!

We found this Trattoria via Tripadvisor and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves; so much so that we returned a second night. It is located very close to the Duomo but felt like another world.The food was simple but delicious and also inexpensive. We were the only tourists there and it was busy both nights.
The walls are covered in political posters and commendations from left-wing figures and were quite an education. It was a memorable experience and we would undoubtedly return next time we're in Cremona.

In today’s world, it very nice to see people (especially business owners) who stand behind their beliefs and passions, and have done so for a very long time. This small, cosy trattoria close to the main piazza absolutely reflects at least two of the owner’s passions - politics and food (maybe in that order...), which is to be admired (in my opinion).

The menu is small and each dish has clearly been crafted and chosen with great care. The waitress was very friendly and, when we asked, made some great recommendations, both of which were delicious and which we probably would not have chosen on our own (strawberry risotto and spaghetti carbonara).

The restaurant is decorated with all sorts of photographs, posters and artwork speaking to the struggles of the left (in particular the communist party) for the rights of the working man/woman in Italy (which is very likely something most Americans know nothing about, but should look into, as it forms a huge part of the political identity of Italy in the 20th century).

Anyway, cute restaurant, very nice food at a reasonable price, and, if you are curious and/or wouldn’t be offended by it, a brief introductory lesson in some political history.

Great experience. A bit of Italian is needed and the menu is handwritten. Some wonderful primi - especially the risotto with strawberries and red wine (!) And the tortellini with lemon. Very friendly and funny owner. We were there on a quiet sunday night and he offered us grappa on the house. Very kind and nice
