Small family run place serving traditional food from the Tuscany region. For starters we had the soup and the home made ravioli filled with guanciale which were the speciality of the say. The ravioli were extremely tasty and should be a permanent choice on the menu. For mains we had beef cheeks which were also perfectly cooked. No tourists around,... More

We had lunch and the food was excellent. Simple food made from local ingredients. Clearly the staff were proud of their produce and were very helpful and friendly in their service. Would recommend for a casual meal.

This small restaurant is situated in a small street between the centre and the river. The atmosphere is relaxing and the staff are friendly and helpful. The cuisine is very local to this part of Emilia Romagna and the quality was excellent. It was also good value for both food and wine. We were the only non-Italians on the evening... More

Our first visit to Parma was very enjoyable with lunch in this restaurant being very memorable. The food was freshly cooked and very tasty. It was good value and we were very well looked after. It had a lovely atmosphere and we are happy to recommend it.

I feel all the good reviews are justified. The good is ok certainly not fine dining but not lower End either. Would I come here again probably not. Nothing wrong with it and the service is brilliant. But maybe not for me

Tried for lunch around 1pm on Saturday in September but the restaurant was full. Very helpful waitress made booking for later and we came back before 2 and were seated on an inside table. There was only one waitress covering front of house yet she was very efficient and made time to explain the menu. We shared an orange and... More

In a quiet street not far from Palazzo di Pilotta, this osteria serves unpretentious inexpensive traditional dishes with a smile. It also has an outdoor area and was perfect for a late lunch. Pasta and wine were both lovely and I watched the waitress go out of her way to ensure that everyone was satisfied. If i was in Parma... More

Our dinner at Antica Osteria della Ghiaia was an amazing and heartwarming experience. The food was superb, but simple. You can taste that there is good produce and it feels good, Italian comfort food at its best. The staff is really friendly and the ambiance is very cosy. One of the best meals I've had in Italy.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and found a warm welcome and great food. Had to wait a couple of minutes for a table during which our dog was brought a bread roll and some water! Was worth waiting for an excellent lunch of local food and wine. We really enjoyed the Parma ham and Vitelli tonnato and wished... More
