This is a little jewel not so far from the city centre. Not big, kind of cosy atmosphere, not many tables, nice lighting and simple but warm decor. Food wise you could find all of the typical and more traditional dishes of the Mantova area,...More

A very interesting mix of tradition and innovation in this small and nice restaurant. Very good food, top quality service and a wide choice of wines. The Tiramisu’ with sparkling chocolate deservs a special mention!

Recommended by our hotel, Casa Poli, a short walk. A very small place. Be sure to make reservations. Our wine was just perfect. I opted for scallops and black pasta. My sister had the rabbit. It was a love fest!

We had two pastas: Roquefort and shrimp and the octopus ink and they were both spectacular. The local white wine was also affordable and excellent.
