It made me feel the old spirit of Cremona! So many types of risotto dishes, tried two (zucca & provolone) and must come back to try all of them! Very good wine. Service was great, friendly, natural. The place is simple with many details of old crafts. It has the soul! I noticed that a lot of Cremonesi come here!

We have just been there for a stop on our way back from seaside. The restaurant offer an unbelievable variety of risotto... both for quality and choice. I suggest to book in advance your place because the place is often fully booked. absolutely Great money for value !!!

Fancy eating good risotto? Without any doubt, head for Hosteria del Cavo, via Cavo Cerca. You'll find it a bit difficult to get a table if you haven't booked in advance, but it's worth a phone call. In winter choose risotto con lo stinco, in the warm season, take advantage of the well-stocked carrello degli antipasti while waiting for risotto... More

On the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor, we walked to this restaurant tonight, only to find the shutters down and a "for sale" sign on them!

A wide variety of risotto most of them with that touch of Italian ingredients. We also had the buffet but definitely no space for second course. Totally recommended and the price is good for the quality offered.
