This was our favorite meal in Parma. The parmigiano flan starter was incredible as was the pork main dish. The wine list was extensive and so very reasonably priced, we bought some to bring home.

This was the most disappointing - and most expensive - meal during several days in Parma. The outdoor terrace is an inviting place to dine, and the service welcoming and friendly. The Noci di capesante grigliate con guanciale croccante were delicious, but they were floating...More

Very nice restaurant, with an interesting menu (both seafood and meat) and great service. Complementary prosecco (at the beginning) and cookies (after the meal). We tried a beef tartare and a typical Parma dish - tortelli di Parma with butter and parmesan among other things....More

Recommended by our Bell Attendant Michele at Sina Maria Luiga and what a great one it was. Pasquale from Il Trovatore greeted us with 2 complimentary glasses of Prosecco. We enjoyed a sumptuous dinner of melt in your mouth prosciutto, tortelli, pork cutlet and steak....More

Il Trovatore was a good restaurant, not great. We began with a Prosecco and an amuse bouche, shared a large plate of prosciutto of Parma, then lamb chops and “Duchessa di Parma” (a sort of meat ball of turkey and ham and cheese). Service was...More

Dedicated to Verdi's opera Il Trovatore, this restaurant combines the excellence and abundance of Emilian cooking with operatic background music (Callas and Di Stefano in our case), for a total gourmet-cum-theatrical experience in the city of belcanto. Spectacular starters, harmonious pasta and rice dishes, dramatic...More

Found this amazing place in the outskirts of the city after having a good walk around Palma. We ideally wanted an authentic Italian lunch and couldn't have chosen a better venue. The owners were incredibly inviting without being intrusive. Once seated we were offered a...More
