While we love Mantua, the superb performance of Sig Martini and his team will be the decisive factor that brings us back to Mantua again and again. The multi-lingual staff advised us quite well on the menu, and every dish was excellent, except for the...More

Impeccable service, and dishes coming from the great traditional Mantua cuisine. Tortelli and Risotto alla Pilota were fantastic. Best Sbrisolona in Mantua. Servizio impeccabile e piatti della grande tradizione mantovana.

Had lunch here and enjoyed the meal. It was a bit pricey but worth it. The local specialty risotto di piloto was interesting. Waiter did good job of describing everything.

Outstanding meal from begin to finish. Tortelli di Zucca, the best. The melanzane parmigiana and the branzino, delicious. Pesche al forno as desert, wonderful. Topped off with superb service. Go there.

I tortelli were good but nothing really special. The restaurant serves excellent typical dishes that would just be so much better if served with more delicacy, they lack of some sort of "savoir-faire" that could make them perfect. Good wine list, very affordable prices

Behind the unassuming entrance is a first-class restaurant with, if weather will allow, a lovely outdoor garden. Not just the best meal we had in Mantua, but one of the most memorable in our entire trip to Italy.
