I went there some years ago because it is a domestic relic to Parma. Most Parmesans recommend this osteria as the top of the city; which are big words. I took the advice, having lived in Parma for one year, and I was not diappointed....More

First, mille grazie to our Parma guide, Valeria, for telling us about this Trattoria/Osteria and also for making a reservation for us. We tried its "Tris di Cavallo" (three types of horsemeat: roast, raw, and raw with egg and tabasco sauce). What a surprise! The...More

If you're looking for real Parma food... this is the place. It's not fancy, they don't wear white gloves, but those tortelli will make up for it. Prices are average, even too cheap for the quality of the food served.

The hotel where I was staying recommended the Osteria and it was great! Good location, very good service and food. The ravioli with pumpkin was excellent.. Obviously a place for locals and I will definitely return.

Small osteria in the heart of Parma with traditional local food. I personally found the first courses too generously covered in butter, but I didn't go there for that. Besides, the anolini in broth were delicious. The place is famous for its horse meat, which...More

We were advised by a local tour operator to try this place. We were so glad that we took her advice. It's in a quiet, almost deserted back street near the Duomo, small and pleasantly decorated. The staff were friendly and patient with our attempts...More
