After visiting the historical center of Parma you have to book a table at Trattoria Il Cortile for lunch or dinner. If you are a fan of the culatello (we talked about lately) you will have a lot of satisfaction.
We decided to start anyway with a fish appetizer mix : smoked salmon, scallops au gratin, warm octopus salad, all accompanied by delicious brioche bread.
For first courses they have a great option of small portions of different dishes, I love that! You can try a bit of each….and we had ravioli with fresh herbs, butter and sage, garganelli (hand-rolled tubular pasta) with culatello ragù, tortelli stuffed with cooked shoulder….they were all delicious.
You can match very good local wine or from different Italian regions.
To finish great surprise of the dessert trolley, nasty and tempting, even if you think you are done you can’t resist and believe me, it’s worth committing the sin ;) especially for “zuppa inglese” (traditional Italian pudding) it is amazing.
Il Cortile has also a great catering service for every occasion, check their website.
In the restaurant the atmosphere is warm and familiar, Maria and her staff makes you feel at home I guess the pictures say it all….then the food is really worth having a stop in Parma.

Absolutely perfect gluten free tortelli!! Couldn't ask for anything more. They have a whole different menu for gluten free food. Nice and romantic environment.

Parma is arguably the best place for restaurant food in Italy and this restaurant represents its finest. Whatever you try here you will enjoy. The ravioli are luscious. In a town where the very best parmesan is not even sold but rather traded among the producers, in a town ruled by Napoleon's second wife, in a town where the locals will debate what is their very best parma ham, you have to try this restaurant. Bon apetit

The food is average. You find it better thousands of places in Italy.
The waiter is unskilled.
You cann't have caraf water even if you order bottle of wine.

It is my preferred choice whenever I am hosting people from other countries willing to have a taste of local food with good quality and reasonable price. Desserts deserve a visit . Diet to loose weight must stop for a while!
