A nice restaurant with friendly people. A ample choice in the menu and we had not to wait very long between servings. The walls could use some paint here and there. A little bit pricey.

We went for the degustation menu "from the sea" and could not have been happier. So many delicious taste sensations and each one better than the last. Great value and friendly service - do not miss this gem xxx

I had a lamb dish with butternut squash that was the best lamb I have ever had in my life. Most of the food we had was high quality and very well done. The flavors were amazing. Service was very good to subpar, depending on who you get, and how busy they are. It took us a long time to... More

Mezzaluna is a wonderful restaurant with a modern Italian menu that delights the palate at every bite. We were presented with an Italian menu only which made the experience magical as our broken Italian was insufficient to allow for a complete translation. Consequently some of our choices were immediately understood such as the calamari (superbly cooked) and the Carbonara which... More

Recently spent a week in Ferrara and ate here twice. The food is what you might call modern Italian. Clearly Italian inspired but not traditional. Bottom line it was really excellent. The crispy egg with truffles was outstanding and a dessert of basil ice cream in a passion fruit "soup" was sublime. If you are in Ferrara, this is a... More

We picked Mezzaluna because of prior Trip Advisor reviews, and we were delighted. The food is interesting without being precious. If you've been in Italy for a while, you're used to those packaged breadsticks that appear on the table. Here, the breadsticks are real ones, and they (and the entire breadbasket) are exquisite. We started with a superb grilled octopus,... More

As part of a quick detour to Ferrara, we decided to eat our lunch one Saturday in this cozy restaurant located near the central market. An interesting lunch menu includes tasting menus for both seafood and meats, with the a la carte menu organized much the same way. Lots of fascinating choices, but am not sure if they offer an...

We spent 2 weeks in the Po Valley, ate out every night, and this was the best restaurant by far. It feels very enotica/family like. Very friendly. A truly fantastic chef who can match and marry flavours brilliantly. We never eat in the same place twice when we're travelling preferring to try different restaurants every night. We broke our own... More

We have now eaten at Mezza Luna twice and I wanted to be sure before reviewing our first meal that was Devine could possibly be as wonderful on our second visit. On both occasions we were with a friend or another couple. The food was extraordinary to be sure....the flavors and presentation are exceptional......the creativeness of the menu is something...
