Made a stop here for a wick lunch on or way down to Siena. And couldn’t have asked for a better local culinary journey. Everything from the cured meats antipasti to the pasta was delicious. Highly recommended.
No wonder the locals come here in their finery.

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch comprised of pasta (delicious gnocchi, spaghetti and piscerei), lamb cutlets and beef cheek. The lamb and roast potatoes were a highlight. Dessert looked impressive with a selection of 11 mini sweets on a plate. Classy fitout and surrounds too. We will return soon!

We stopped here based on reviews as we were passing through the area and had a very nice dinner. We started with an aperitivo plate with a glass of dry white Lambrusco (a decent sparkler!) and with it came some bites of a delicious salami and fried polenta unlike any I had ever tasted. It was like freshly buttered popcorn. Amazing. I never knew polenta could be so good. My friend had a homemade pasta which was good. I had an artichoke salad which, if you really like artichokes and fiber, you'll appreciate. (It's raw). Our caramelized onions were superb and the portion generous. My only gripe would be that my lamb chops were about half as thick as I normally get when I order them at other restaurants, and as such, they were a tad overcooked (because they are thin). Overall, though, it was a good dinner and the atmosphere inside was lovely.

It's a nice little restaurant in the emilia countryside. The restaurant is well decorated and very clean and comfortable. The staff are polite and professional, service very fast. Food is all about local cuisine with a twist. We all had different items on the menu and were super satisfied. It's a bit expensive given the location but again everything is top notch.

If you ever happen to be in Fidenza ,give you the chance to try local food,good quality ingredients and good attention.We've tried as an appetizer the zucchini thinly sliced with olive oil and a delicious parmigiano.As a second course we had the gnocchi with asparagus and parmigiano,unbeatale!
