Fresno Italian?

What you recommend for an Italian restaurant in Fresno? About a year ago when we were in Fresno we tried Parma, which was great. Anything else we should try? If not, we'll most likely eat at Parma again.

We'll be staying near the airport and would prefer not to have to drive that far.

  1. Richard, do you know that Parma has relocated? It is now on the SW corner of Palm and Herndon. New digs, bigger and better with a nice outdoor dining area. We were there too soon after the opening and kinks were not yet worked out. But same owner, same food so you'll not be disappointed. They now have been open since July.

      That's good to know! All the online sources I see list it at 7089 N. Marks. The new location is 6729 N Palm Ave & W Herndon?

        I don't know the exact #, but it's in a very small shopping ctr on the SW corner of Palm and Herndon. The drive isn't that much better from the airport. But if you want Italian, I think it's the best.

          Google maps has it about 16 minutes v. 23 for the old.

          Have they worked out the kinks and improved service since opening?

            We were there about 2 weeks after they opened. They have been in the new place since early July. We haven't been back because of being out of town not for any other reason. Knowing the owner, I'm sure all is well and you will not be disappointed.
            Please post back with your thoughts should you decide to give it a try.
