My wife and I had a most wonderful dinner here. We were pasta'd out after too many other meals, and were lured here by the promise of meat. When we were seated we asked for a wine list from the waitress, who responded that "he" would be right with us. It was the owner, who worked with us, bringing multiple... More

Ate at this delightful little Osteria last night. Recommended by our Hotel...it was a shear delight, perfect in every way. The gentalman that served us, patiently went through the menu in great detail, explaining and recommending all the local delicacies. We were a family group of 6 and were all thrilled with our meal. Relaxed, rustic, washed down with some... More

The friendly owner provides English translations of the menu. Everything that I ordered was simply first-rate and reasonably priced: the pumpkin ravioli with sage sauce, a very tender piece of beef, and... More

A simple semi-rustic restaurant serving the best of cucina ferrarese. The menu is short but has more than enough attractive choices. As for the wine list, “Son’ io,” said our server (presumably the proprietor), “parlante.” He brought out several bottles from Romagna and explained their characteristics; we decided on the Torre di Ceparano 2007 from the vintner Zerbina near Faenza...
