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

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...
