What can I say. Great to sit indoors as it is to sit outside having a fantastic lunch. We drank spritz and had great Parma ham and perfect pumpkin stuffed ravioli in sage and butter. Perfect.

This restaurant is spacious and light inside and also has plenty of room outside on the pavement. The service is efficient and friendly. The place has a wide variety of local and national dishes and a good selection of drinks. I had the platter of cold cuts to start, which was delicious, as one would expect in Emilia-Romagna. I followed... More

Absolutely a nice local place to taste regional dishes starting from bread and continuing with cappellacci or spiedo not forgetting an excellent Lambrusco. Have fun!

This restaurant is great if you want something good to eat but don't want to have to change or get dressed up after a day of sightseeing. The menu has a lot of options. The service was friendly and efficient.

Food is great, with a very big wine menu with all over Italy types of wine. Food is tasty. Service is good. Waiters speak English.

My husband and I asked our hotel concierge yesterday for a recommendation for a simple, easy dinner after a long day of travel and sightseeing. We were not disappointed. The food was heavenly! The cappellacci was heavenly, and all of our other dishes were perfect. They kindly helped us choose wines, as well. Service was great, and waiters were helpful.... More

Our hotel recommend this place on the main square as being well priced. I warn you, price was okay, but the food sucked!! I confirmed the ravioli was frozen. No doubt. The 1/4 chicken was two day old without flavor, and the potatoes it came with were dead on arrival. This so called restaurant should be ashamed of itself!! There... More

Cusina e Butega is located in the center of the historic center, but the restaurant presents a modern atmosphere, open and bright. The bulk of the seating is in one large room. It contrasts with many of the nearby restaurants that exude a more historic, dim atmosphere. Personally we prefer the dimmer, more-historic venues, but Cusina e Butega is crisp... More

We dropped in for lunch after about 12 months from the last visit and found it very good again. We waited for a few minutes for a table for a two, and we're again impressed by the breadth of the menu and winelist. The waiter advised us re some of the items we enjoyed a shared plate of prosciutto, other... More

My mother and I enjoyed a wonderful meal here. The cold cuts are amazing and the pasta dishes simple but full of flavours. Would thoroughly recommend. Full of locals. Not expensive and lots of variety on the menu.
