There were 6 friends in our group, my partner and i had sea bass which was just delightful. Each of our meals was cooked to perfection. Sergio recommended a fantastic pasta starter filled with Amaretto and pumkin which was a delight. A nice friendly ambience made for a perfect evening.

Very good restaurant in downtown Viadana (northern Italy, Po river). Everything is home-made. Wonderful Tortelli di zucca (Pumpkin Tortelli), a very good choice of second serves and desserts. Don't miss!

This place has been and is one of the best places to eat in Viadana: great food and good service. The atmosphere is nice but somehow informa, but the food will surely let you overlook it
