Mascalzoni was a great find. Quiet, but lively, with delicious traditional food. The veal cooked in Lambrusco wine was "melt in your mouth" tender. The grilled vegies were somewhat ordinary, though delicious as always with olive oil. Would definitely come back.

One of our most memorable meals in Parma. Incredible quality food, excellent wine list and great service. So good, we ate lunch and dinner there on the same day. Thank you, the steak with balsamic was a highlight.

Though is a bit hidden from the main streets this restaurant is definetly worth it. Good wine and food, quiet place, good serving and everything you could expect from a lunch in Parma. Try the Taglione Prosciutto, impressive dish!

Was on my own for the night, and this place was quieter than all of the packed places around the corner. Had prosciutto and Parmesan for entree (when in Parma), which was plentiful and yummy, followed by chateaubriand. The beef was a little more well...More

So many restaurants throughout Italy take pride in what they create and serve; Mascalzoni is up there as one of the very best. The presentation is artistic, the setting is perfect (we sat outside) and the waiters and waitresses were outstanding. We sat and ate...More
