A recent and fleeting trip to Parma saw us visiting La Locanda di Sparafucile restaurant for lunch. Located only a few minutes drive from Parma town centre, the restaurant/hotel is situated in a restored old country house.
The kitchen offers a varied menu of local specialties including local Parmesan, fresh pasta dishes and selected meat cooked on a charcoal grill and a selection of local fish.
An entree plate of thinly sliced parma ham and deep-fried gnocchi fritto.
Another local speciality followed, a selection of tortelli. Silken pasta pillows filled with a selection of spinach and ricotta, mushrooms, and sweet roasted pumpkin. A smothering of burnt butter and Parmesan and you’re in heaven.
No space for dessert, but a fabulous lunch.
