Dined at Gallo d’Oro on my last trip to Parma a few years ago and as the meal was so good, I decided to eat here again. Seated in the covered outside seating area which was perfectly warm on a cold December’s day. A shared starter of ravioli with pumpkin was delicious, really good and you could taste the pumpkin...

Reservations are always a good to make when you arrive in Parma! When a chef friend saw my pictures on Facebook he said spot on! The food was spot on, fresh and delicious with wonderful service! A restaurant where locals go a good sign. Very good value for what you received. Definitely, try the Tortelli di Zucca! Biggest regret, too... More

Although they forgot my desert. Covered with free digestive and espresso. Pumpkin tortellini is not for my taste but overall delicious.

I guess it will be pretty hard to miss a good dining experience in Parma as the restaurants are relying heavily on their fantastic world famous hams and cheeses. Also at Gallo d'oro the quality of the charcuterie was world class. If this is prosciutto, what is it that I am eating at home.... ? The pasta (regional specialty) was... More

Been there after a nice aperitivo in the must see via Farini. The place is located in the very center of Parma so really great if you want to have a walk before or right after dinner. Very "classic" interiors but still part of its being traditional in my opinion. We had a starter with a selection of local ham... More

I saw the restaurant's signboard while walking down the main street and we took our chance. It was packed with Italians, formally dressed probably having their lunch break there. The atmosphere was lovely, the paintings on the walls, the cutting board preparations rightin the middle of the restaurants really made us feel that we are in a genuine Italian restaurant.... More

Just off Via Farini on a corner of two alleys is this restaurant. We arrived quite early and it didn't look busy but within 20 minutes it was packed and people were waiting for tables. So it's best to book. I had veal with plums which was very nice and we had the house wine which was ok. The staff... More

We had a great dinner there - of course didn't miss the very much recommended torta fritta, which is indeed delicious. The service was good and pleasant

We were warmly greeted upon arrival, and showed to a bright corner table. We expected good food but were stunned by the exceptional quality of cooking, especially for 2 dishes- their Pork cheek with Balsamic vinegar and the melanzane ( aubergine). Words cannot describe the complexity n great balance of these dishes. The service was consistently good and friendly. Smiles... More

The Golden Rooster restaurant is a renowned local in Parma where you can taste the flavors of the culinary tradition of the city in an intimate and friendly atmosphere, perfect for any occasion. ELEGANCE AND TASTE Located in the historic center of the city, the restaurant Gallo d'Oro is located in a side street Farini, a quiet and private area adjacent to the local nightlife district of Parma. The ideal for which I want to pass an alternative evening of good food and fun.
