This trattoria was too good and it is widely known throughout the Emilia-Romagna for such exquisite dishes ... For me the best was the tortelli di zucca (pumpkin) with white sauce ... a orgasm for the palette that ends with tiramisu... A detail: not open on Tuesdays and booking is essential if you want to get a table.
A small family run restaurant in a side street of Via Farini in the historic center of Parma. The menu is limited but features classic Parma cuisine with a twist. Dishes vary with the season, in October you should try the fresh porcini salad and in November homemade pasta with black truffle from the Apennines. A dish of horse meat either raw or cooked (a specialty of Parma) is usually included in seconds section of the menu. The restaurant owner can help you select a wine to go with your dinner. The hills around Parma produce Lambrusco a fizzy red wine which tastes better than it sounds and is the perfect accompaniment to Parma ham and torta fritta. English and French spoken.
Probably the best pasticceria in Parma. This is also acknowledged by the Gambero Rosso which awarded it 78 points, equivalent to 1 cupcake. It serves a delicious array of cakes and pastries. Start the morning with a cappuccino and jam filled croissant or pop in for an espresso and mignon (exquisite miniature cakes) in the afternoon. Please note it's practically illegal to order a cappuccino after 11.30am in Italy. Do try the cannoncini, literally little cannons, pastry tubes filled with custard or zabaglione. Keep an eye out for the seasonal specials, in January the patron saint illario is celebrated with shoe shaped biscuits.
