Very good service and the restaurant offered a more traditional Italian menu. Their selection of meat served with mashed potato and pickled vegetables was a explosion of flavors.

The Canossa restaurant in Reggio is an institution which keeps alive the traditional dining ambience of the city. The menu is moderately priced for what is offered, but it is not aimed at people who want a quick, no-frills meal. The menu offers a wide selection of antipasti and pastas for the first course and the menu for the second... More

We went for lunch which, in our case, was a full meal, house made pasta followed by a variety of local meats done to a tee. Very tasty, served from a trolly where you can pick the meat, see it carved in front of you (so you can control the portion size) and also ensure a variety of types of... More

If you want to eat true home cooked Emilian food this is the place for you. The restaurant is warm and inviting in winter and their pasta delicious. For the meat eaters there is the roadt meat trolley and the boiled meat trolley. Probably need to book at weekends, it is popular with families st lunch Sunday

Canossa was recommended to us at our Air B and B. It did not disappoint. We were able to park in the lot across the street from the ristorante. We were a bit early for dinner ( they did not open until 7:30) so we waited a few minutes before heading in. At first the ristorante was fairly empty, but... More

This restaurants confirm the logic of: "never change a winning horse".......and it feels like they ve been running gloriously for decades!! Great local and tradional food......if you love the simple and well prepared stuff. Dont miss out the "bolliti" trolley, from which you can choose your selection for 13EUR a plate. The sauces along with it are delicious.....especially the mostarda.... More

My friend Luca wanted to take me to a regional food restaurant, and also, being a little late, we needed a place that wouldn't close early. The capeletti al brodo was wonderful, just like I remember from la Nonna. The meats were tender and juicy. Service was wonderful. I would definitely go back+

I have been coming here for years. When you walk in you think you have gone back in time to the sixties or very early 70es. Here they don't change menu . You come here because you want the local stuff and the best of it. So every bite is a "mmmmhhh" of pleasure. Starting from the mortadella and ciccioli,... More

This restaurant is step back in time. Old fashioned home made traditional food from Reggio Emilia. There is a roasted meat trolley that is fantastic and their tortellini in brodo is excellent. Good good good value. The waiters look like they were here when the place first opened.
