Gregarious locals flock to this old-school enoteca (wine bar). The interior may be minimal, with yellow walls and wooden tables, but the wine list and sandwich menu are substantial. You can feast on a selection of tartine (little bread squares with creative toppings) or chow down on a grilled panini—the seemingly endless options for the latter include such standards as coppa (a cured pork product), pancetta, and Gorgonzola. Low prices make this a
real draw for Parma's twentysomethings... and everyone else... so it's crammed with people, who spill out into the streets, wine glasses in hand. There's an enormous selection of wine bottles to go, so you can avoid the madding crowd with takeout.
