Best known for its incredibly edible contributions to world gastronomy (especially parmigiano cheese and Parma ham), Parma has also been revered by opera lovers (who flock to its Teatro Regio) since the days of Verdi, who was born in nearby Roncole. Parma’s many historic sights include the 11th-century cathedral and its baptistry. Begun in the 12th century, it's considered one of medieval Europe’s most important buildings for its straddling of the Romanesque and Gothic architecture periods.

We had a very nice diner here, with traditional Italian food, nice service and a great wine list. Do not go if you want modern or contemporary fare, waiters younger than 50 or any music. Do go if you settle for home-made pasta, empty iconic wine bottles on the shelf and Italian-English smiles of the staff.

On a trip which didn't have a single bad meal, this didn't disappoint. Recommended by the B&B owners, this is very traditional, not fancy and tasted great. Freshly made pasta. Great local wine. Rude not to go frankly! Best to reserve a table. Relax and enjoy - particularly the very first Lambrussco on the menu - as recommended by the waiter. Torteli with pumpkin divine. Lamb shin delicious and rich. Ice-cream hand made on the premises on the day and served at your table - try to leave some space!

Father and son run this very nice restaurant in Parma. Informal but up to date and elegant décor, the staff does everything to help and satisfy the customer. Rich, tasteful and classicsl Parma food, as well as seafood option as fresh as the same day. Good list of wines, one really feels almost at home. Bravo!

I always thought of this place as a posh, expensive restaurant with average food. I was wrong!!!! The food is excellent, its presentation top, outstanding service (not too friendly, not too formal), great location and very reasonable prices. If you are Italian it's mid-level expensive, if you are a foreigner especially from US or Northern Europe it's a bargain. Let's say 40 euro/piece with wine. But, again, I had a great meal in a very nice ambiance with proper service and presentation.

La Forchetta" restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town centre of Parma, in one of the most beautiful and oldest buildings in the city, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Battistero. It is family-run and offers the finest of Parmesan cuisine as well as fish dishes, accompanied by the best wines. Tortelli stuffed with spinach and pumpkin, duchessa di Parma, braised veal cheeks, fish crudité, scallops in a salt and pepper crust, lobster tagliolini, tuna steaks and Catalan salad, are just a sample of the variety of our menu. Our bread and pasta are all home-made in the old-fashioned way and we are particularly careful in our choice of ingredients. It is also possible to eat outside. A visit to La Forchetta means enjoying a moment of pleasure, a delight to the taste buds, in the city of taste and fine cuisine!
Lovely staff and great food.....the best in N Italy. We had a lovely lunch with a selection of local meats, green pasta and salami, and aubergines. The wines were good and the desserts imaginative.

If you want to eat an amazing kebab made with handmade bread this is your place! The sauces are amazing and the sweets too! Sahid is always smiling and friendly. The local is little but there are some standing tables.

Me and my friends stopped off at Parma and decided to try this place based on the reviews, it didn't disappoint. It's crazy busy so you need to wait around 10 minutes but they were the best Sandwich we had ever had. If in Parma you must try this place

40/a their Signature Beer is refreshing and aptly named after their address, I think!!..
