This is a traditional trattoria - choose local foods - pasta & hams and you will find it delightful. However, for people who wish fresh salads or a vegetarian variety it is not ideal.

The personnel is really kind and competent in the field of wine but also they can explain every little food tricks they use. The prices are correct and the location very nice , even if there are only 2 windows and you can't see nothing outside , anyway you can exit and smoke your sigarette under medieval palaces and in a "no-cars area" where cats can walk freely.
The restaurant is apparently gay friendly , the owner is the president of the local gay pride event or someting like this.

This delightful and authentic Mantovan trattoria is defiantly open every day, except for Sunday evening. The fêted La Nouva Marasca is closed Mondays and Tuesdays, so this was a welcome alternative to the slightly expensive restaurants lining the Piazza Erbe itself. Leoncino Rosso claims to be “from 1750”, so that’s quite an established business, and it seems well-liked by local Mantovans; by 1.30 people were hanging around for tables to become free – contrasting with the barely patronised above-mentioned restaurants around the corner. Blissfully, the outside seating area is all shaded by a wide brick archway. So, if wobbly tables don’t put you off, and you’d welcome the chance to try Stracatto, head for the Leoncino Rosso – and early doors if you are wise ! 3 courses with wine and coffee will leave you with change from E35.
