Cozze gratinate, or baked mussels, is a popular dish in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy. This seafood dish is typically found in coastal towns and communes such as Rimini, Ravenna, and Cesenatico. It can be found in local seafood restaurants and markets, such as Pescheria del Mercato in Rimini and La Pescheria di Cesenatico.

To make cozze gratinate, mussels are first cleaned and steamed until they open. The meat is then removed from the shells and mixed with breadcrumbs, garlic, parsley, and Parmesan cheese. The mixture is then placed back into the shells and baked until golden brown.

Cozze gratinate is recognized as a traditional food product (PAT) in Emilia-Romagna. The specifications for this recognition include the use of local mussels, breadcrumbs made from local bread, and Parmesan cheese made in the region.
