Delicious tortellini and pasta bolognese. Dessert was awesome and we were served a liquor to go with the dessert. Very friendly, lovely setting. Would highly recommend.

A jewel. An unexpected surprise. Great tiny restaurant in Festa, with an Amazing Chef! Typical Emilian food done by a passionate woman - Catia Fornari. Her "spaghettoni" and her "tagliata di manzo" were pure perfection. Best "tagliata di manzo " I've had in my life (and I'm Italian and lover of restaurants" - if you are close by don't miss... More
