Alessandro at Casa Poli (our hotel) recommended this restaurant. The very essence of home style cooking. Rustic and wonderful. We got there early, and the place filled up quickly. I dove in and tried donkey. It was delicious. Nice couple runs the show.

Small Restaurant that serves local food from Mantova. Reservations are a must because of the limited tables available. Great if you want to try typical food from Mantua.
