Lovely traditional restaurant Jul 14, 2011
Close to Sordello piazza and the heart of the city,this restaurant offers good traditional cuisine at affordable prices and a long winelist of tens of local wines but also from Austria,Germany and more than 20 Champagne and 25 Burgundian wines!

As starters at lunch,Danielle had a great green salad(8 euro) and me a spalla cotta di San Lorenzo,8 euro,(cooked pork shoulder),the most oldest(12th century) speciality of Parma area served with mostarda di mele(mostarda is an Italian condiment made of candied fruits and a mustard flavoured syrup,traditionally the mostarda di Mantova is made from small sour apples).

My wife had then a typical dish of the area:nice tortelli di zucca,8 euro(pumpkin tortelli),a sweet and sour dish related to the Christmas tradition(often served on Christmas Eve) where the add of mustard gives a spicy flavor to the sweetness of the pumpkin.It's a very old delicacy dating back the Renaissance.

As main I had delicious bigoli con guianciale(8 euro):bigoli are like pici in Tuscany, extruded long pasta,guianciale is a delicacy of central Italy,an unsmoked bacon made with pig's jowl or cheeks.It is traditionally used in pasta all'amatriciana or spaghetti alla carbonara.

Tip:for grandmas,facing the restaurant there is a nice shop selling some beautiful clothes for children!

Our best value for money restaurant of our trip!
the different rooms were full one …
