Located in the center of Ferrara, this restaurant offers very good local dishes. Excellent stuffed pasta with pumpkin or cheese. Try the filled zucchini flowers. Good local meat dishes. Nice atmosphere of young locals. In addition there is a large choice of cold meat cuts and cheese to take home. Reasonable prices.

It was oK but not nearly as good as Trattoria Da Noemi or Osteria della Campana which both had better food, better dervice and a nicer atmosphere. The restaurant is a bit too modern and open plan and as a result somewhat loud. There is also a big deli counter. In its defence the pumpkin soup was excellent and there... More

We dined here with some friends and work colleagues. The restaurant was very busy (we had booked) and the staff very pleasant. We had sharing platters to start with and our main meals were served to us in individual pans which I found lovely. There is also a fresh deli counter within the restaurant.

Had dinner here on our first day but wasn't very impressed. The place is only good if you are here for the meat and cheese. We tried some seafood pasta, pumpkin soup, ravioli with cheese and spinach, small cheese platter and the bill come out to 60 euros :/ not worth the money.

we had dinner here 2 nights in September. This restaurant is very popular, and for good reason: they cook great food and use very good ingredients. Wines are also good, service is excellent. The 1st time we went, everything was perfect. The 2nd time, I had ordered a tuna steak. Unfortunately, the tuna was overcooked. As fas as I know,... More

We were a bit unlucky with restaurants in Ferrara in the sense of expecting much more than we found. This one merited two visits. At first look It could have passed for a fast food restaurant. Very far from it. Food more than honest, quite good actually. Fast, friendly and "I do well what I do" staff. Don't ask me... More

I recently had lunch and dinner at this place and it was fantastic. Great casual ambiance, service food, and wine. The portion size was enough for two people. It is a place you must go to in Ferrara.

We were staying next door and noticed how this restaurant was always crowded so we gave it a shot. It was terrific. We sat in the back garden which was very nice. We had an excellent waiter that we ended up seeing on the streets of the town the next night. He was friendly and well informed and gave us... More

My wife and I arrived at Cusina e Butega at 7pm (1900) on a Wednesday. We walked through the restaurant, then stood at the front door as several waiters passed us, setting up tables. The sign on the front of the restaurant said that the restaurant opens for dinner at 1800. After being ignored for about 10 minutes, we asked... More
