Ristorante Parizzi
Via della Repubblica 71,

Parizzi is an amazing Michelin-star restaurant in Parma, helmed by a talented chef Marco Parizzi. Contemporary decor and airy atmosphere is pleasant and not at all stuffy, as would be expected from one of the most expensive restaurants in the city. The food is excellent and moderately-expensive by NYC standards.

The restaurant splits the menu into two parts. The first section highlights contemporary cooking and the second is focused on the traditional, provincial Parma cuisine. The contemporary side wins with a solid lead, but the traditional cuisine, while lacking some subtlety is nevertheless flawlessly executed.

One of the best things about Parizzi is its wine list that offers a wide range of local vintages. An extremely helpful waiter, detecting uncertainty in my behavior, has recommended an excellent and the cheapest bottle of sparkling white Malvasia that complemented the meal perfectly.
