Farmacia Profumeria – Convent that created perfumes
After we checked into the Holiday Inn Express in Parma (that is, AFTER we finally found it!!), we decided to hit up the Fidenza outlet where we struck out. After we got back we went to La Greppia in downtown Parma (I drove to the city center…the maitre d’ saved a parking spot for us so we parked right in front of the restaurant). The food was WONDERFUL!! I think it’s the best meal I’ve ever had in Italy. We started with a plate of cold cuts (local products); shared 2 pastas, and finished off with a braised beef with polenta dish. I’m can barely move. It was an arm and a leg but if you ever make it out to Italy, i HIGHLY recommend a visit to Parma (rent a car) and a dinner here!!
fresh handmade pasta in the glass window into the kitchen! you can see the chefs cooking!!
Bisquit tray…(the small red round things in the center are super miniature apples! it was great!)
