A short drive south of Parma, this is our favourite restaurant in the Province. Excellent food and service and an amazing wine list.

You'll need either a very fine map or a good GPS to find this isolated place high in the mountains that separate Parma from La Spezia and the Med to the West. Once you get there, 'Vale la pena,' it's worth the pain. The owner,...More
