Visited on a very quiet saturday lunchtime, we were the only customers, this was extraordinary considering how good this place is.Our host was impeccable very chatty and friendly, and has great music, contemporary art hangs on the walls a beautiful space.The food is awesome the ravioli is the best we ever had, the freshest salad accompanied our meal, and the mille feuille dessert was sublime.If ever we visit Mantua again this will be our first port of call.This is the real deal if in Mantua don`t miss.

I went to Cinquecento with group of friends, we wanted to have a good dinner in nice, non commercial place- we couldn’t be luckier.

For first food was delicious, you can find there typical dishes of this region. I took tortelli with pumpkin- the best I ever eaten. I also recommend for a starter cheese "tomino" with marmalade of onion and for second course sliced crude meat (I don’t remember the exact name-magatello..) It was served with truffle, french cheese and salad- it was literally melting in the mouth.
Quality of the dishes compered to the price were fair.

Atmosphere in the restaurant is very very friendly. Service is professional. Restaurant is situated in the old building close to the center, it’s totally renovated. I’m not used to hot temperatures, so for me big plus was AC.

What I loved about this place is this that I could go to the cook and ask him everything about the dishes. As I said before service is very very friendly.

Saluti a Massimo e Domenico! I hope to come back to this place as soon as possible.

Cheers,
Ania
