Il Trovatore has outside seating, but on a cool evening we took a table inside the lovely interior where we were greeted with a glass of prosecco. And shortly after a tasty potato flan arrived at the table. The menu had both a number of...More

We had lunch on a Monday when the restaurant was less busy. We ordered 2 seafood set meals and some addition dishes fit the children. The cooking method was varied and ingredients very fresh. Portions were good and we left the restaurant totally satisfied.

I had a very good lunch of culatello di zibello followed by tortelli di erbetta. I also had a glass of red wine, water and coffee. The bill was 35euro which seemed reasonable for the quality offered.

This was our favorite meal in Parma. The parmigiano flan starter was incredible as was the pork main dish. The wine list was extensive and so very reasonably priced, we bought some to bring home.

Very nice restaurant, with an interesting menu (both seafood and meat) and great service. Complementary prosecco (at the beginning) and cookies (after the meal). We tried a beef tartare and a typical Parma dish - tortelli di Parma with butter and parmesan among other things....More
