One of the challenges for some travelers in Italy is to find a restaurant that opens earlier than the typical 7:30 or 8:00 pm. We wandered the streets of Reggio Emilia hoping to find a bite to eat at 6:00 after a long day on the train. Sotto Broletto was perfect. While from the outside, it may look like it only has pizza and the décor is simple, the restaurant has a full menu with all courses including a primi course of homemade ravioli with chard filling – fabulous.

Nice little busy spot for people watching whilst you eat, with good basics. Avoid the more complicated mains which we found to be of average quality, but the pasta and pizza dishes were very good. Service was friendly and efficient enough, but you do pay a little extra for the location. I would have awarded the place more than the Average score for 3 stars, but the Very Good score would be a little generous - a score of Good fits well.

Located just off the main piazza, Piazza Prampolini, this is a perfect stop for lunch or dinner while visiting Reggio Emilia. You can eat inside or out front under a nice arcade. The menu includes a wide variety of pizzas, tasty calzone, pastas, entrees, salads and more. The service is friendly and attentive and the food is consistently fresh and good. They make their own bread, which is excellent, and has a perfect crust. For dessert, we tried their tiramisu—one of the best we've had so far in Italy. There are also other desserts worth trying. We've eaten here a half dozen times now and we've never been disappointed.

This is exactly how I picture a family run pizza restaurant in Italy! On arriving first night in Reggio Emilia we were tired and not wanting anything fancy. In wandering around the main square we found this restuarant in a side ally leading to another square. Looked simple so we took a table inside as the outdoor seating was more hectic. Typical set-up with the small tables and bright lights! We started with pumpkin filled raviolli which blew us away! Then we had two of the best thin crust pizzas ever! A liter of house wine was the local speciality - a Lambrusco style - fizzy red but was ok once you got past the first taste. We went back a couple of days later and sat outside and enjoyed the people watching as Wednesday's are festival nights during the summer. There were films in one square and dancing displays in another. A great spot and very popular with the local trade.
