The food was average, the waitress not polite. There are so much more better places to eat in Mantova!

I recently visited osteria dell'oca and I was delighted by both the food and the place. It is a small and cute location. The service is really nice and the dishes are served in cute and traditional metallic dish/pan. The food is excwllent and the price is on line with Mantova. Enjoy a visit!!

This is the second time I've been to this restaurant in the past 3 years. I don't remember the last time being bad but also not incredible. But! This time I had a wonderful experience. I speak little Italian and the woman serving me was helping translate to let me make the right choices for me. From the wine which... More

This was recommended by our AirBnB host. It has a friendly atmosphere and excellent local dishes. The food is just as good as in more upmarket restaurants in the centre.

We were walking around the old town when the skies suddenly opened up and the rain poured down. We were trapped under a covered walkway. Osteria Dell'Oca was right across the way. The place was empty, so we took a chance. I am so happy that we did. Everything from the local meats and cheese - served with the amazing... More

A sensibly short menu. Delicious tortellini. No problem about us sharing one portion. Simple home cooked rabbit and lamb chops. Nothing fancy just a warm welcome and good honest nice food. No outside seating and you could miss the restaurant if you didn't know where it was. Full of locals. Must book on a Saturday. What is the liqueur they... More

This place was recommended to us, and we tried to come here on the first night of our stay in Mantua but were turned away because we didn't have a reservation. So we persisted, and reserved a table for another evening. This was fortunate, as we had an excellent meal here. The food is somewhat rustic, but none the worse... More

Dinner with friends, no reservation so we wait for quite an our. A little difficult reading the menu, because dishes are mixed on a paper without any logical sequence. The waiter perfectly explained and suggested us traditional dishes based on local products. Each dish is very heavy so an appetizer and a first course is enough if you want a... More

Menu not too big and complex, very nice atmosphere, all the dishes were delicious, we asked for the recipe of the sweet/piquant pear preserve which they serve with wedges of parmisan cheese and had a lovely chat. After some really pretentious places in Verona and the Veneto this was a breath of fresh air - and of course, *delicious*.
