Description: Restaurant "La Filoma" The March 20, 1848 Parma fought and hunted the Austro-Bourbon government of Charles II to allow for fair regency and not tyrannical. In 1898, in memory of these events, entitled The City Borgo della Macina, the site of the eponymous palace and paid the tax on grains, like Borgo XX Marzo. And here, from the early twenties of 1900, there is a tavern, now a restaurant, which has never changed the girl's name that brings: The Filoma. We see him in an ancient palace, rebuilt in the eighteenth century by the Counts Sacco, immersed time in Arcadian literary atmosphere of the times illuminated by gentle intelligence; It housed a theater and already presaged in place of refined entertainment. Then here in 1915 Augusto Cacciamani, with his wife Filomena and four children, he moved from Vicopo in Parma and took over an old inn that, unlike today, opened the inner side of the village. Since then Filomena become "Filoma" for the grandeur of its "big woman" in the kitchen and even why so, if the choir or chorus Verdi Theatre Royal, to have a dish of cappelletti late at night, they had to intonarle a serenade, they would be able to do better in the rhyme choruses! The place, the kingdom of boiled, the baked lasagna and tips, remains in the hands of Filomena, grabbing for the "throat" high and low society, until 1935 when the war broke out, gives the activity. The restaurant is managed by the Lords Faults until 1950 when it arrives Ravazzoni Sergio, who was the waiter of the great cook, who in his honor gives the local to the ancient glories of revelers, deserving the star Michelin, which was soon to come! Arriving in the atrium of the building under a street lamp that recalls the gas lanterns once there is the entrance of the restaurant, including eye presents the rich history of an environment, the smell of people who have stayed imprinted in brocade wall , the wooden floors, the ceilings, the antique mirrors. There are three dining rooms, one just entering yellow gold Mirror Hall, right Saletta of all green Shells and at the bottom left a small intimate Saletta all in Red brocade. The atmosphere is that of dinners start of the twentieth century, particularly in Paris, where among the cookers of the Belle Epoque there were precious magical chef preparing mouth-watering delicacies and famous personalities of Art and Culture. round tables large and small, soft pastel colors of damask tablecloths that touch the ground, shining glasses, laces and fresh flowers declare the hospitality of culinary masters.

I'm just happy that the famous restaurant was full and I just passed by the La Filoma on my way.
This is a restaurant where the chef want you to be happy and come back.
And you will if you pass by Parma again.
The best pasta with ragu I had in Italy and I had a few.
Parma is of course also all about the typical local cuisine and that was as expected. Highly recommended.

Tucked away down the street from the cathedral is a lovely restaurant. I had some of the best pasta I have ever had and a tiramisu to die for. And the man course in between of small rooster stuffed with prosciutto was absolutely delicious.

We’ve been here all week in Parma and truthfully, we have had only excellent food. Tonight was past and ragu sauce and braised veal and polenta. Not fancy. Just incredibly tasty food served by a gregarious chef (Alessandro) in an Uber charming restaurant with roots to 1915. No complaints. Just compliments.

We came about 15 when most of the places around were closed for siesta but this place was open. We were welcomed! The small nice place with friendly staff. Not a huge menu but very good food with local wine.
