Il Violino

Reviewed By oceanskies - Pulau Ubin, Singapore

This is a restaurant that offers a fine dining experience for Italian food. For tourists or anyone who would prefer a quick meal, it may be too rushed an affair to check out this restaurant. At least set aside 50 minutes to dine here at Il Violino.
The specialty, Risotto Violino, was a pleasant and flavorsome risotto. I like the Rane ed asparagi too. The second main dishes that were ordered tasted delicious too.
Service was thoughtful and good.
The good news for English speaking guests is that the menu has English translation. Ladies, please be prepared to be given a menu with no price printed on it. The menu with the prices printed on it will be given to the gentlemen.

Al Carrobbio

Reviewed By Gerold E - Stockholm, Sweden

We stayed one night in this cosy guest house during our drive from Sweden to Spain. It is a place with great atmosphere, a very good restaurant serving food with local ingredients and a staff that is more than helpful and friendly. It is simply a great pleasure to have found this place and the next time we would like to spend more than a single night.

Pizzeria La Pendola

Reviewed By Dave H - Marlborough, United Kingdom

What a great little pizzeria. We wanted to eat away from our hotel and this place was suggested. We shared a fairly bland seafood starter, which was a disappointment but the pizza that followed was fantastic. Huge in area, but on a wonderful thin crispy base and full of flavours. We live in Southern Italy in the summer so are used to good Italian food, but this pizza, and the very cosy atmosphere, was memorable. Highly recommended to anyone visiting Cremona!

Locanda Torriani

Reviewed By Rudi S - Benitachell

The Torriani restaurant was unfortunately (for us) completely booked during our stay. It seems to be a very favourite place for people with good taste. We enjoyed the suite in the upper floor which was large, modern, had a huge, modern TV set with even international channels. Breakfast was ok. The view from the courtyard of the hotel towards the Torazzo (high tower of the church) was spectacular. Restaurant "La Botte" in a parallel street came to our rescue. It was good.

A wide variety of risotto most of them with that touch of Italian ingredients. We also had the buffet but definitely no space for second course. Totally recommended and the price is good for the quality offered.

Hosteria 700

Reviewed By MoonProf - Los Ranchos, Nm

What a wonderful restaurant within an easy walking distance from the Cremona Duomo! Unlike some other reviewers, we found it easily. The ambiance, service and food were excellent, and as others have indicated, the parmesan ice cream with caramelized onion appetizer was really good, as was the truffle risotto with smoked goose breast. The level of service was just right. Not too pushy but certainly attentive. If I ever get back to Cremona, I might dine here every night, it's that good and affordable.
Remember that many restaurants in this area close on Monday though.

Metropolitan Cafe'

Reviewed By Barracuda008

This is one of the 3 main coffes/bars in piazza del duomo of Cremona. It is my favourite due that it does not have the very low service of the old one (with better view) but still have the atmosphere. My main critic is that the aperitivi snacks were quite tasteless

Fresh made food , friendly service , great cocktail service with the greatest mojito and margarita of whole town

Reviewed By None_6565 - Italy

While visiting my friend, she called and asked if they were open for lunch at midday. The guy at the phone said yes, but we needed to reserve. My friend accepted reserved. As she lives in another city, we made the 40 minute drive to the restaurant and ... it was closed!!
If they don't have enough customers to open at day, the guy should have told us. And they should have called to cancel or modify the reservation but... nothing!
Awful and not respectful behaviour.

Great Pizza Naples style. Great pizza choices in the menu. Available some other dishes from Naples area in the menu. Service quite friendly and fast. Very good for a Pizza old style. Ambience, little bit cold.
