Arrived in Mantova around lunch time and Fragoletta was recommended as a good place to eat. Definitely not disappointed. I had the bigli pasta which was outstanding followed by the pancetta...I wa s hungry! A great wine list and good service.

Friendliest staff ever, lovely and warm atmosphere, here you will have the best homemade pasta served in the city. A must try are the famous tortelli di zucca, but really go for what you feel, you won't be disappointed! A plus is the incredibly interesting wine list!

It took a lot of work to find this place, it was recommended to us by a local policeman, we asked for a local restaurant, nothing elegant but with good food, and this is where he sent us. We both had the antipasto (Misto di salumi Mantovani con mostarda di mele, polenta abbrustolita e gras pistà)with several cold cut meats,... More

I should have read the trip advisor reviews on this awful restaurant much more closely. Normally I would have, but our first choice of restaurant was closed for holidays when we got there, so I had to quickly find something using the trip advisor phone app. My son & I had vegetable tortellini. Nothing on the menu even hinted it... More

We found this place in the Michelin guide, and had a truly excellent meal here. The black truffle pasta (one of the day's specials) contained vast amounts of truffle which were shaved on freshly by the waitress at the table. We almost fought over who had the last mouthful of this. The horse stew was also very good - it... More

This little restaurant, painted bright yellow (in a happy way) inside, had a creative menu that still worked in some regional traditional foods. Of course the Cappellacci Di Zucca, a regional favorite, is fantastic here. Be aware that Italians eat dinner late. We arrived here at 6:30 and were told that it's still early, they're not open til 7:45 or... More

Nice traditional and unpretentious. The waiter/owner was very friendly and they have an English version of the menu which was helpful. Had the traditional ravioli stuffed with pumpkin because that's what you are supposed to have in mantua but it's a bit sweet for my liking. Lovely pasta with a creamy meat sauce too. Would recommend it.

A typical Italian-style restaurant. The food is good, mostly Mantova cusine. The first courses and the steaks are really delicious. The staff and the service is also very nice and well-organized.

Food was just average, nothing impressive. Wine was quite good. Service was fast and friendly. Quite annoying that in an apparently veggie dish there was actually some ham on top without saying on the menu. Anyway, the - I suppose - owner apologised with us. Ambient is very simple, a little too much perhaps.
