Stopped here for lunch after visiting the nearby castle (also recommended). Perfect pasta with red mullet as a starter, followed by tender, thin slices of beef with julienne of vegetables and then baked peaches with a sublime lavender ice cream. Couldn't fault anything except the over friendly dog which kept resting his/her head on the table! Would love to sample... More

excellent restaurant in this most beautiful castle in the Parma Valley. The food is amazing and öfters a wide variety with fish (including a pricey yet fantastic raw seafood platter), meat and local fare, such as the salumi platter (including Salame Di Felino, coppa and of course Prosciutto Di Parma. The fixed menus (40 and 45 EUR) with several courses... More

We booked at the last minute on a Sunday night and luckily we got a table. I ordered two interesting dishes, the antipasto being chilled raw crayfish with fried artichoke pieces and the primo bring tagliatelle with anchovies. They are indeed very special recipes on simple ingredient, but however simple in their presentation, could become signature dishes of the restaurant.... More

The food was of very high quality, don't expect large portions (to be fair, you will not leave hungry!). The location and service is excellent. The restaurant is slightly on the expensive side, but acceptable given the location and high standard. They speak English :)

We visited the castle (which is amazing, by the way), and we were looking for an atmospheric place nearby, and all we had to do was walk down some cobblestones, and there it was! They were very busy, and it was Good Friday, so we were a little concerned that they were going to be overwhelmed, and that service might... More

We were in the restaurant with a group of 40 persons. Maybe this has effect on the qaulity/service. The food was average, same the wine. I hope the service is better for individual visitors

The burrata and tomato sauce with basil ice cream is worth the visit. It's magic in your mouth. The other dishes were very good as well. This would have been a five star review but I felt rushed to settle the check and leave as they were closing the kitchen. It would have been nice to sit for another 20-30... More

Friends took us to the Taverna del Castello for dinner. Reservations are required. The walk up the road was steep, but the views before sunset made the walk worth the effort. The food was well presented, the wine was spectacular, the service impeccable. Many local people were dining, so the restaurant was not full of loud American tourists. A magical... More

We had lunch here on a day when castle was closed - place was not busy, but there were locals present. We chose it based on previous reviews, and they are accurate: superb views and atmosphere (we sat outside), the food is surprisingly good for a touristy location.
