We had dinner for two in the cozy vaulted basement. I recommend the gnocco fritto con salumi misti and the tortelli di ricotta e spinaci. The house wine was quite nice (we chose a still red wine, but they offer a larger selection of sparkling wines). The torta sbrisolona with malvasia passito was a great way to end the dinner....

The food was just ok. Zou can skip the fried bread (torta something) since in this place it was a little bit oily. We found this restaurant in a small road and it was really kind that they could serve us some food although the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. Other than that, the food was just ok and... More

-Location: 4/5 (close to the city center) -Menu:4/5 (vast selection of local dishes) -Service: 3/5 (quite friendly, but too slow) -Price quality: 4/5 (good price quality ratio) We ordered mixed cold cuts with gnocco fritto and a burrata for appetisers, and pisarei e fasò (dumplings and beans, a typical dish of Piacenza) as fist dishes. Finally, we ordered an excellent... More

In Piacenza for the ravioli festival (!), we found this place in a side street on a Saturday lunchtime and had an excellent lunch. Fresh ingredients beautifully prepared and served, good local wine, very reasonable cost for the quality. It's clearly popular with loads (luckily we arrived a bit early by Italian standards; it soon got very full), and one... More

Wine (Malvasia Oro tra le vigne) very good. Service OK. But risotto was disappointing, not tasty (and too many toasted almond slices).

This place is not horrible but it's far away from deserving a recommendation status. I had the lunch for 9€ with a glass of water, a glass of wine a cafe and two servings. Sounds good at first but the only good thing about it were the water and the sparkling white wine. The first serving were supposed to be... More

Our hotel made the arrangements and promised us we would not be disappointed on our last night in Piacenza. The previous night we had also followed their advice and on the way home in the taxi we wondered if we would get lucky and have two fine dinners in a row. We were seated in the back room and within... More

We do not speak Italian and we where delighted to be offered a menu in English. Staff were friendly and helpful and the service was excellent. However it was the two pasta dishes we had that deserve the highest accolades. The ricotta filled tortellini in the lightest sage flavoured butter sauce and ravioli filled with ricotta and hazelnuts were light... More

We went here on the recommendation of our B&B. The app was ham, copal and fried bread. Skip the fried bread but eat the ham. We then shared a ravioli which had a bacon, raisin sauce. The pasta was house made and very light. DH had pork with a sauce-possibly balsamic. I had fish with a potato crust and pesto.... More
