al Brindisi is the Guinness Book of Records 'World's Oldest Pub' - 1435. Copernicus drank there (hence the 'finding the center of the universe'). The atmosphere is rustic, the booths are old wood, the food is authentic, the service is excellent, the wine selection is great and the chef will tell you what is good tonight and which wine should...

we visited twice - the curiosity of seeing what is touted as the oldest wine bar in the world rught us here but it was the atmosphere, the ecletic ambience and the friendly and witty staff that brought us back the 2nd time. The situation right beside the cathedral makes it an ideal stop to the tourist itinerary and in... More

Having eaten at Al Brindisi a number of years ago, it was great to go back and find little had changed. The degustation menus, particularly the 25 euro, are excellent value and the quality of food and wine both very high. The cappellacci di zucca in a butter/sage sauce (a local speciality) remains one of the best pasta dishes we've... More

We are making the most of eating in restaurants at lunchtimes and evenings in the Bologna region. Until today we have found that the cuisine has been first class. The lunchtime menu offered very little to excite. The bread and salad was fresh, otherwise there is nothing positive to say. The seating arrangement is cramped and the lunchtime, 13 euro... More

We visited this enoteca as it is allegedly the oldest in Europe. The set menu was overpriced at 13 euros. It included a small glass of local red wine and a small bottle of still mineral water. The salad was fresh and the pasta pastry acceptable. The surroundings were dusty as advertised but the waiting staff surly and when we... More

Me and my wife spent last Easter day in Ferrara (very nice city), and had lunch in this restaurant, just behind the cathedral. Good choice of foods, excellent quality of wine, at a reasonable price.

Just behind the Cathedral this is a rather cramped, noisy place. Very traditional menu and very popular with local people. Food is good and reasonably priced. The service was excellent and the house wine wasn't bad. Definitely worth a visit

I had two friends visit this past weekend and we went into al Brindisi for a glass of Prosecco! I had told them that it was the restaurant that the UK chefs 'The Hairy Bikers' had visited on their Italian cooking trip. We had the best Prosecco of the day (it was our 3rd glass and 3rd bar). The waiter... More

We chose to sit in a room to the right of the entry, but once we were settled it looked as though we were in sort of a storage shed. Quite chilly, which was good for the stored wine all around the room but a bit less comfortable for diners. The food was OK, the famous cappellacci di zucca a... More

We loved this little wine store/service, Enoteca. We stopped for a glass of wine for a break of our walking tour of Ferrara. They brought out free appetizers that went well with our wine. They helped us with Italian/English to select just the right wine. A great looking interior. Service was excellent.
