    We went on Sunday date night as we often do and had an absolutely terrific meal. My wife had the Birkshire pork chop, and I had bucatini with spinach, capers, lemon and parmigiano. We both had a salad with procciutto, gruyere, and a warm vinaigrette, and we both had butterscotch panna cotta. And lovely service at a nice table. All this, and a full bottle of just fine wine was $50! This along with Campiello owned by the same company is the best deal in the country,

    We come to Parma to listen to the jazz music and have a nice cocktail. The food is acceptable--not fantastic. Osso Bucco is nice. Desserts are pretty pathetic. Presentation of the cannoli was virtually non-existant. Pretty much just three cannoli plopped on a plate. This is the second time we've visited Parma but did not receive our Open Table points. I'm hoping someone will correct this.

    Introduced a friend to Parma 8200. Once she found the restaurant she settled in and enjoyed the evening. Even with specific directions, locating the parking lot was difficult for her. But after a nice glass of wine and a delicious meal of sea bass that was soon forgotten. We were a table of two between two large groups so at times we had to really raise our voices to hear each other.I would recommend sitting with other smaller tables if you are planning an evening of intimate conversation. However, all's well because she said she'd like to bring her mother for lunch when she returns from her winter stay in Palm Desert. It may be more quiet. The delicious food, wine, and service "saved" the evening.

    The server was kind and smiley, the atmosphere warm, soft live jazz played behind us. If we went for wine, cheese, and salami apps the evening would have been perfect. The meal was unfortunately very salty and not special. All four of us were sadly disappointed in our entrees. We will come back for the outstanding wine list, but not for dinner.

    After my husband and I got married we invited our guest (approximately 30 people) for an optional dinner after thewedding ceremony. Honestly, besides looking at the photos online, I really didn’t know what to expect. When we arrived, my guests were so impressed! Heck, I was even impressed with the choice. We had about 3 servers who were very welcoming and patient which to me is a major PLUS! They gave us our privacy and did not overwhelm us with how everything tasted yet they were easy to contact. My husband was so impressed with everything; he and I will definitely make another visit very soon. I highly recommend Parma 8200 for friends, lovers and/or families. The atmosphere is versatile and blends well with your energy.

    I met for a first date, and I couldn't have picked a better venue. The ambiance lent way to a very romantic setting and soon the rest of restaurant faded into the background. Due in great part to my incredibly beautiful date, I'm sure. It was Halloween, and the wait staff was all in costume, as were a lot of patron. Service was fabulous, attentive and so helpful. The food, was exquisite and the "Date Night Dinner" an incredible value. I will be back time and time again.

    I went on a romantic dinner with my boyfriend. We had a cozy booth with soft lighting. We were offered a lot of help choosing the exactly correct bottle of wine. We were allowed tastes until we found one we loved --and at a great value! We shared a meat and cheese tasting, a salad,and their butterscotch Panna cotta. We had thought we might try a pasta course too but we were so satisfied after the anti pasti and salad, that we skipped straight to desert and coffee. Everything was fresh, interesting, and delicious! Our server was the perfect mix of friendly, helpful and discreet giving us or space to converse and holds hands, while showing up at the table to answer questions and make suggestions. Lovely place. We will be back.

    Upon our recommendation, we returned with two other couples who had never been to Parma before. The dinner menu is varied, but not overwhelming. My wife ordered the scallops which were served with sweet potatoes. The presentation was beautiful and tasted as good as it looked. The rest of the guests in our party were equally pleased with the halibut and the ribeye. Although the restaurant was very busy, we were never rushed by the very attentive serving staff. We wish we didn't live so far away from this gem.

My youngest son, had the Penne Vodka as well, I went with Dana's suggestion and had the Gnocchi with sausage in vodka sauce! It was phenomenal! It was the BEST entree I have ever had at their establishment! I asked if it would be on the menu from here out and was told on Thursday nights but it should be there every night, it was to die for! It was Monday night which, bonus, was half price bottle wine night, it was perfect. Also, through looking at the menu saw that Sunday night is Date night, 2 entrees a bottle of wine for $50.00. Wow!
