Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow. What a little gem of a restaurant close to Fidenza in Italy. Superb individual menu of top class quality. Great service and catered extremely well for my wife who has Coeliac disease.

I can highly recommend this nice place. The owners are very friendly. The kitchen is superb. They serve local food, home made pasta and meat of high quality. It is so nice to sit outside in the terrace in the garden, sipping an aperitivo and...having a very good dinner.More

The Osteria di Fornio is typical of the high quality Italian restaurants you often find in rural areas in Italy. They’re always packed out with locals at lunchtime and on weekends people drive from miles around for a good meal. The service was efficient and...the food very good . If you find yourself hungry and near Fidenza, you can’t go wrong by dining here. Ask to see the wonderful cellar full of hanging cured meats.More

Lovely atmosphere sitting outside in the undercover area for Sunday night dinner. Antipasti provided a delicious selection of cold cuts, cheese and polenta chips. Lamb secondi was a generous serving. While my family enjoyed the flavour, the meat was brown and over cooked for my...liking. Chocolate cake for dolci was one of our favourite desserts to date. Toilets were clean.More

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.More

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!More

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.More

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.More

We were resolved to find this restaurant at the outskirts of Fidenza following numerous positive reviews in Tripadvisor. To our satisfaction, it was worth it. One of the best meals during our tour of Emilia. And very inexpensive. A solid lunch for two with a...bottle of excellent local wine was 50 Euro. While you may find many good places for pasta, this restaurant is unique for its fantastic meat. Tiramisu was also top class.More

Very friendly service, large selection of antipasti being their signature dish and this shows off the quality of hams from the area. Pasta dishes are delicious but have taken a point off top marks for this as they are just too small but the quality...and taste are wonderful. Desserts are a work of art!! With a sampler plate of mixed creams and mixed tortes! Probably the best restaurant in the area all in all as we have tried most of them!!More

Cucina curata con passione, dal primo al dolce. La cantina è molto fornita, i salumi e i formaggi sono di ottima qualità. Il servizio è attento, professionale e veloce e il clima è informale e famigliare. Adatto anche ai pranzi di lavoro. Meglio prenotare, il...locale è sempre molto frequentato. Italian cuisine (northern Italy, Emilia Romagna plus fish and specialties from other regions) with passion, from the starters to the dessert. The wines are mid-to-high range. Cheese and cold-cuts are of very good quality and from local traditional producer. The service is professional and good, with the warmth of a family business. Good for a business lunch/dinner. Reservation is not required, but required if you don't want to wait.More
