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.

We actually only stopped in Fidenza for lunch and since it was already around 3 pm, this restaurant was the only one open and we couldn't have found a better one! When we arrived, the restaurant was empty, the man (probably the owner) was playing...the guitar, then he presented us with their menu without any paper. We all had ravioli filled with ricotta, drizzled with butter and sprinkled with parmesan. We have never eaten better in our lifes! The whole restaurant had an incredible vibe, we saw our ravioli being made by the ladies in the kitchen, everything homemade and really delicious. I think we found a scooter gem! If I ever drive by again I have to stop by again! (btw I don't have any photos because everything was so great I didn't even think to pull out my phone.)More

During a short visit to the quaint town of Fidenza, near Parma, together with a group of 30 persons I had dinner at this establishment, just before attending the opera at the nearby Teatro Magnani. The set menu consisted of (1) freshly sliced cold cuts,...(2) two kinds of 'primi' (pasta dishes), and (3) desert. (1) The waiters brought a few large platters with a selection of regional salami, coppa, cooked and raw ham (prosciutto cotto and prosciutto crudo). Remember, Fidenza, like Parma, is in the Emilia, land of Parma ham, Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese, and so much more. It goes without saying, therefore, that the 'crudo' literally melts in your mouth. It can get better than that. The cold cuts were served with freshly made 'gnocco fritto', a traditional 'bread' from the Emilia region, a dough made from flour, water and a pinch of salt, then deep-fried in lard. (2) If you ever visit Emilia and you don't have the ubiquitous 'tortellini', then you haven't really been to Emilia. At this restaurant, they make their own pasta, every day. Like a bakery, you can see how they work the 'sfoglia' (fine sheets of fresh pasta dough) and make the tortellini. The ones we had were served in traditional fashion: butter and Parmiggiano cheese (filling was with ricotta cheese and chards, no meat). Like the butter, these tortellini melted in our mouths. I had two servings, but I could have had another two if it weren't for the 'second' primo... Yes, there was a second pasta dish, this time small pasta buds with baked beans (in Italian, 'pasta e fagioli'). This is a staple in many parts of central-southern Italy, but each region has its own variety. Here, the pasta and beans were 'dry', not in a soup therefore (very common in the south of the country). The beans were so good, they tasted like meat sauce ('Bolognese', sort of). I was so full from the previous primo that I had only one serving of the second primo. I wish I had a container to bring them home! (3) This Trattoria makes their own deserts, clearly, but as we were short of time, we 'just' had the home-baked tarts, one with fruit jam, the other a typical crumbly pie called 'Sbrisolona' (literally, 'big crumbler'). If you ever go to Mantova, north of Fidenza (in Lombardy, but on the border of Emilia) you will find this tart everywhere. I don't know if I will ever manage to go again to Fidenza, but if I should feel the urge to have some really good and genuine 'tortellini', with no doubts I'll visit the Antica Trattoria al Duomo again.More

My husband and I went here based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. We sat outside in a cute courtyard. A young man and a young woman looked after us and their English was good enough to make it very easy. We had...nice fresh salads as we weren't wanting anything too much. Then my husband had gnocchi with Gorgonzola and a I had spinach and ricotta ravioli.. apparently the region specialty. These pastas were absolutely the best we have ever had anywhere... and this is our fifth time in Italy. The pasta melted in our mouths and the flavours were perfect. Definitely worth going here for the pasta... and the delightful wait staff.More

We started our Via Francigena walk in Fidenza, looked about for a local style place to eat, happened upon the Antica Trattoria al Duomo. Let's be honest - it doesn't look fancy; it's very local.... We went inside, took a table outside (we did not...sit inside). It was OK, on the covered patio. We ordered.... and had some of the best pasta we have had in Italy. My son had the gnocchi with a tomato sauce and I had the same with gorgonzola sauce - awesome, melt in your mouth gnocchi. The service was great, the people are friendly and nice. It is a local building, small trattoria but this is some of the best homemade pasta you will come across. The sauce is the perfect amount to taste it and the pasta. You cannot go wrong stopping here and eating. Sure, the entry is not perfect - the food it. If you are in Fidenza, this is the place to eat - no doubt about it.More

They did start us off with some awesome Parmesan pieces that were salty and spectacular! The pasta was homemade, the sauces were simple, but delicious and the tiramisu was superb! You can see right into the kitchen through large windows - they are very proud...of the meals they make. The prices were also very reasonable.More

You should come to this small restaurant just to meet the lady that takes orders and brings you your food. Her face expressions are something you have to witness first hand. As starters she brings6 you a few pieces of Parmigiano cheese. Then I had...agnolotti in brodo that were just great. The options for other first courses were just as good The lady described a plate called Duchessa and I would have taken it if I had been hungry enough. I went for more Parmigiano with pears Finally budino al cioccolato If you are near this place stop right away. Do not look any further !!More

I've been there for dinner to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday with friends. We organize everything pretty late, and the madame that rules the place was very disposible. The food was great and she suggests what to eat very nicely. Everything we had was perfect, most...of all the "Gnocco fritto". I had many of them in a lot of restaurants, but this one was the best ever!!! The atmosphere is familiar without being sloppy. It's cheap as well: we spent € 33 each, having two courses each, plus desserts for everybody and vine. Highly reccomendedMore

My wife were staying in a nearby country villa to do a bit of a food tour and came across this fantastic authentic experience because everything else was shut on Italian national day. We really wouldn’t have found this if everywhere wasn’t shut and we...opened the door to ask about the menu. It happened the lady who runs the restaurant had her brother and sister in law in for dinner and they spoke English which was a godsend, everything is Italian here and our pigeon Italian was not going to crack it. As a result we got the house recommendations down to the fresh made to order ravioli pasta and my first experience drinking wine the traditional way from a bowl. We have been to Italy four times before and even though we have had some fantastic experiences from Tuscany to Amalfi this has to rate as the best authentic regional Italian meal I have had right down to using butter in the pasta sauce, a no, no in the rest of Italy. We do usually have to try to find the great secret places, this one we stumbled across and I am glad we did.More

We arrived to this restaurant by pure chance, after a stroll thorugh the pleasant city center of Fidenza. The restaurant is nice, modern style, may be a bit "cold", but you will be warmed up by the traditional dishes : pumpkin stuffed ravioli, really tasty...and good, "pisarei e fasò "" ( small pasta with a beans in a very thick bean sauce. Excellent meat : roasbeef with a delicious gravy. As a dessert, an excellent "sbrisolona " ( almond dry cake. Good local wine, very pleasant overall, at a fair price.More

This is a no-frills restaurant, with no menu and no wine list - the waiting staff tell you what you can have - and very limited choice, you get what they are cooking that evening. And a very good way of doing it, in my...opinion, because everything is fresh and well-prepared in house. There was just one antipasta on offer, but it was so good - the local speciality, Torta Fritta (light puffs of delicious bread) with some of the best cured meats I have ever tasted. There were three pasta choices and three main dishes. Prices were very reasonable, and the wine good and cheap.More

It can't get any better: the kitchen is separated with a big window, and you can watch the chef to mix the dough for your pasta! everything is prepared freshly for you. Do NOT miss the "Torta Fritta" with the local Salami and Culatello (which...i think is better than the prosciutto di Parma) as a starter. the owners have moved their restaurant to this fantastic new place just recently and created a very nice interior. If you are looking for quality and authentic italian food - this is the place to go in Fidenza. (for dinner you should book in advance)More
