Parma the tasty
Good food and quality wines are two excellent reasons to explore this corner of Emilia, which is recognized worldwide for its gastronomic excellence. Here is all the information you need to practice the fine art of taste.
Aiglon by Eataly: at lunch the menu changes daily serving light contemporary food with a focus on local specialties.
Canova by Eataly: only open at dinner, offers a dining experience based on three guidelines: traditional Parma-style cuisine, food by Eataly and traditional recipes.
Cocchi: Its boiled meat trolley is legendary, the restaurant is frequented by Parma’s “high society” and by celebrities passing through the city (via Gramsci).
Enoteca Fontana: Located in a strategic position, this place is popular for its panini, the must-go-to venue for pre-dinner drinks (strada Farini, 24).
Bar Le Bistrot: In the heart of the old city center, this bar-restaurant is ideal on any occasion (piazza Giuseppe Garibaldi, 19).
La Gatta Matta: A very gratifying trattoria. Try the Parmesan cheese pudding with Parma prosciutto. (Borgo degli Studi, 9/a).
Ai due Platani: It has been a favourite with locals for years because of the excellent balance between happiness and price. (strada Budellungo, 104/a - Coloreto).
Trattoria Vigolante: Just outside of Parma, a cozy Emilian-style trattoria with the interior lined with match-boarding, ceramic dishes hanging from the walls and a lovely outdoor veranda. (strada Valera di Sopra, 112)
