I had lunch some days ago with a 15-people group of people. Really nothing to say about food, that is exquisite from the appetizers (please try lardo) to the main course (you can choose between different kinds of delicious and tasty risotto). Don't forget cakes that are wowwww: prepared at the moment, simple but so yummy. Unfortunately the owner has been very rude, unpolite, unkind and not only once but three times. I can suppose he must be this way in his everyday life but still I can't understand how he can lead such as good restaurant this way. Maybe he can afford such a loutish behaviour because his restaurant is anyway full.

It made me feel the old spirit of Cremona! So many types of risotto dishes, tried two (zucca & provolone) and must come back to try all of them! Very good wine. Service was great, friendly, natural. The place is simple with many details of old crafts. It has the soul! I noticed that a lot of Cremonesi come here!

We have just been there for a stop on our way back from seaside. The restaurant offer an unbelievable variety of risotto... both for quality and choice.
I suggest to book in advance your place because the place is often fully booked. absolutely Great money for value !!!

Fancy eating good risotto? Without any doubt, head for Hosteria del Cavo, via Cavo Cerca. You'll find it a bit difficult to get a table if you haven't booked in advance, but it's worth a phone call. In winter choose risotto con lo stinco, in the warm season, take advantage of the well-stocked carrello degli antipasti while waiting for risotto ai carciofi. Yummy!!!

On the basis of the reviews on TripAdvisor, we walked to this restaurant tonight, only to find the shutters down and a "for sale" sign on them!
