This dinner was an experience that we will remember for the rest of our lives, and the hospitality of Nicoletta and Gianni, and their amazing food will bring us back for many, many years.

We ordered a terrific bottle of the house sparkling wine. It was so great that we asked to buy a bottle to take back to the States!

To start, we shared the torta fritta and salumi misti. The torta are fluffy fried pillows that you can break open and stuff the salumi into. Unbelievable! My wife and I had been craving these for months since she found this gem on TripAdvisor! Once we tasted these, we knew we were in for an unforgettable night.

For primi, my wife ordered the anolini in brodo, and I ordered the tortelli di noci. Both were just spectacular. We wanted time to slow down so that we could enjoy longer!

For secondi, my wife had the quaglie ripiene, and I had he cinghiale alla cacciatore. This was homestyle cooking that we’ve never tasted anywhere else. It was just incredible, hearty food. We of course had some polenta as well on the side.

For dessert, we had the tiramisu and some cookies. Again...just incredible.

Toward the end of the meal, Nicoletta and Gianni came out and joined us for a digestivo. They the warmest, kindest people we met on our trip. We conversed in the limited that Italian my wife and I knew, some French here and there, and finally we all broke out our smartphones to let Google do the translating for us! It was an incredible evening that we will never forget. We will be opening our souvenir bottle of wine this winter to remind us of our time in Salsomaggiore Terme!

Grazie mille, Nicoletta e Gianni! È stato un piacere conoscerti. Noi non ti dimentichiamo, il pasto perfetto o il tuo eccellente ristorante! Speriamo di visitare nuovamente in pochi anni (con banbini!)! Stammi bene! Alessandra e Anthony

We arrived yesterday in Fidenza and found the restaurant via Tripadvisor. We spent a wonderful evening here with our twin daughters. The owners are so kind and friendly and made us feel at home right away. We were the only guests that night and the food was just perfect and authentic. Good selection of wine and very reasonable prices. Amazing experience. We will be back! +++

We have eaten in restaurants all over the world but Al Cacciatore is one of the best. Local received with incredible flavor. The owners are warm, inviting, friendly and delightful. We highly recommend that you try this trattoria for torta fritta, culatello, foretelli di noci, vino, quaglie stuffed with parmigiano and served with a small quail egg. Gianñi and Nicoletta will welcome you with open arms and you will leave after an incredible lunch or dinner with tummies full and smiles on your faces.

Off the beaten trail, this cozy family-run restaurant is a mandatory detour for all food lovers. Offering home-made dishes typical of the area including Parma ham and torta fritta that are simply to die for. Food was absolutely amazing with an interesting wine list and good prices.

Just typed a whole review and it's disappeared ! FFS. Anyway-go here. Short taxi ride from salsomaggiore. Delicious regional homemade and local food. Try the Fried polenta with lard and gorgonzola, and torta fritta (fried pillows of puffed up bread-amazing). BBQ on the terrace, great service from Gianni, beautiful area, great wine, and not expensive. Our bill was 75€ all in-with house wine, 4 courses.
