“Good food - basic environment - a place for those "in the know" - Cucina Casalinga”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This restaurant is a well kept secret in Calderara di Reno. You will never find it if someone doesn't take you here the first time.
Or, ... you can read my review.
The restaurant has its loyal customer base. For lunch and dinner.
It is at the ground floor of a hotel, Hotel Brianza. The hotel and the restaurant are managed by different people.
I think that the restaurant owner rents the space from the hotel. The main entrance is at the back, on the parking space.

This is a traditional Italian kitchen, and well made food.
Since discovering this place I have been back at least 5 times for lunch, and I have also used it once for a business dinner with colleagues.

OK, the service is not perfect (some mistakes) and the owner is particular. But if you can live with it, the food will make up for it.

Normally you will order the dishes of the day, and there is no menu.
Which can be a problem if you don't speak Italian, or if you are there with foreigners (waiters only speak Italian, you will have to translate everything!).
The choice of the day is always varied within the Italian cuisine.

And, above all, I have never been disappointed by the food, so that is something.
Q/P ratio is correct, it is not cheap, but if the quality is there.
