Fodor's Review

A simple 15th-century palazzo on a lovely little square in the center of town gives no hint to what awaits inside. Warm ochre-sponged walls adorned with contemporary prints provide the backdrop for some serious food. Chef Filippo Chiappini Dattilo has combined his love of Italian dishes with French influences, creating a marvelous menu. The local specialty, culatello, is served with exquisite porcini sott'olio (mushrooms in olive oil). Another traditional

dish, pisarei e faso (Piacentinian for pasta fagioli), is livened up with shrimp and squid. The colorful risotto mantecato con granchio reale (risotto with crab) arrives redolent of mandarin, with which it has been generously seasoned. Excellent service and an equally excellent wine list make dining here a true pleasure.
