The food here is excellent. It showcases regional specialties. We booked ahead. Top dishes for us included the pumpkin ravioli (excellent with both the tomato and sausage as well as the sage and butter), donkey with polenta and rabbit with polenta. The wine was also...More

Feels like a local restaurant, a bit away from the tourist track. Interesting dishes such as pasta with beans and other slightly unusual (for us) meat dishes. Cooking was very good. Worth trying for good local recipes and atmosphere.

This wasn’t on my original list but I’m glad I went. As others have commented, it offers all the local specialities. Quantities are not too big and I liked the small but well chosen wine list. I had a Cabernet from Lake Garda which was...More

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.

We wandered in for Sunday lunch. The restaurant is charming and simple and was full of big families enjoying themselves. Service is friendly, the food is local and we were well-looked after. The sausage risotto was particularly delicious

We had dinner here and were perfectly happy with it, although I would not say that it was amazing. We shared the mixed ham/salami starter which came with the most enormous slab of molten polenta. We then had the pumpkin pasta which I thought was...More

Just had a main course of steal strips served with parmesan and rocket – best steak we’ve had in Italy – delivered sizzling, and medium as requested. Local Bertagna merlot at €20 was super and San Pellegrino was reasonable at €2.50. To finish off we...More

This osteria is not to be missed in Mantua. It's cozy and charming with a very interesting menu. We had a rabit stew with polenta, veal risotto and pasta with donkey stew. We got a pitcher of house wine, which was very reasonable and nice....More
