This restaurant has great respect for food. They certainly keep the best of culinary tradition from this region but at the same time offer innovation in presenting the signature dishes. It is also located in a beautiful setting with a wonderful garden.

An absolutely delightful restaurant with a beautiful entrance through a garden very Tastefully done. He staff are wonderful and the Chef/owner will remind you of Santa clause without the Ho Ho Ho's. The House Red wine was very nice as was the Pumpkin Ravioli. The Oysters with Burrata and Raspberry were quite misleading both in quantity and in taste. I... More

I dined here as part of a large group, and so had a set menu. The wait staff gathered everyone's die try requirements and those of us with special conditions were attentively taken care of. As each plate was placed in front of me I was assured of its vegan status. Of the four courses the pasta stood out head... More

A lovely patio where you can have a drink and a smoke before and after dinner, good wines and both tradition and innovation in the menu. A place to return to. Very central. Excellent service.

This restaurant was recommended by 2 separate people as maybe the best in Reggio Emilia, which after eating 6 or 7 other restaurants in this wonderful gastronomic city, expectations were high. Ok, the answer is yes, but maybe not to their aspired status and a long way off a 1 star recognition. All said, I would definitely go back. Tip... More

the menu' was pretty average. Quality of dishes was ok but nothing special. Considering the price point, we are well below the expectations. The traditional local dumplings were very far from how they should be made (try some other local restaurants in order to degustate them..). The wine list was the best thing with a wide range of different wines... More

I have traveled the world and eaten at some of the finest restaurants in the world. This restaurant was recommended to us. When I called I asked if they serve vegan food and they said yes they do. When we arrived we went through a beautiful garden and upon entering we were brought upstairs into the dining room. Zero ambience... More

I went here on my last night in Reggio Emilia and am so glad I did. The outdoor seating area was absolutely beautiful. The service was wonderful - the chef's wife gave me great recommendations (potato puree with scampi starter, tortelli primi with parmigiano foam, pork and tuna main, cherry dessert with ice cream). The bread was sliced fresh and... More

Situated next to MaxMara in a little courtyard is this wonderful gem. Our group of seven went during lunch and everyone had the set meal. I had the tagliatelle with veggies. The sauce was light and the pasta was definitely freshly made. Upon seeing another table with a salad, we decided to order one too. It had tuna, chickpeas, tomatoes,... More
