Highly recommendable. The Stradivarius is beautifully located in an old Palazzo in old town of Castell'Arquato.
The food, salumi piacentini, pasta, arrosto, was delicious. The service very, very friendly. Everything on the point.
The accomodation has a certain nobility in a very positive enchanted way. The view on old town and towards the hills of the Piacentino is very nice from the terrace as well as from the inside.
Thank you very much for a beautiful dinner.

We took a side trip from Piacenza to this lovely historic town and had dinner with Italian friends at this great restaurant. The dining room has a wonderful view of the town. We had great pasta dishes (local specialties) and a good local wine. The restaurant is clearly popular and certainly worth a drive, especially given the location.

We decided to give it a try because we saw high ratings but obviously those votes came from clients with less experience. The only good thing about this restaurant is a location. The young girl who was serving us took the plate while we were still eatng antipasto. The plate had remains of salsa which we would use as we were starving! She is young and obviously must learn a lot. The guy who brought vino was ok although confused. First plates were pasta. I saw their photo on Tripadvisor of pasta being prepared handmade. Might be. But ingredients are terrible. It felt like we were eating plastic. Second plates meat: dry dry dry. Polenta: worse I tried ever. Bread seems to be from supermarket (hard and very dry. Check out photos attached).

If you are in Castell'Arquatto and would like to taste the very good food - please step in Stradivarius.
Check the starters with frito misto and torta frita - my favorite.
Nice place with really good food, i recommend

This restaurant is amazing. The terrace is a beautiful place to eat and take in wonderful views. The food is superb and the wine list offers a great choice (some are very local). The very-reasonable price top off an outstanding meal. I would recommend to anyone and return if again in the area. Cheers
