Ate here 3 nights on the run - we don't do that very often

A great place filled with locals and tourists alike. Always busy despite its large size. Great selection of hams and cheeses and all dishes served with a smile. Not fine dining- just good honest food.

An excellent find. Local fare freshly cooked. Good wines, fresh salads and a marvelous choice of food. We loved it. It is not haute cuisine but wholesome food, reasonably priced and pleasantly presented and served. Our Asparagus Risotto was delicious, our salad interesting and our puddings delicious. I loved the strawberry cream Chantilly which just melted in the mouth. Our... More

Ate here on the recommendation of our b and b. It was a very memorable meal. Friday night was very busy but staff were very helpful and the menu was excellent. Had the cold meats - cut very thin - the parma ham was mouthwatering. I had the gnocchi de melanzane which was so light with a wonderful tomato sauce... More

Great location, just few meters far away from the Cathedral and the Castle. Accurate food, both territorial and from the region. Reasonable prices, considering that eating in Ferrara is a bit expensive in my opinion.

It was Monday and our favourite eating place was closed. Near the city centre, about 100 meters fro the cathedral, we spotted Cusina e Butega,. It was early for Italians to eat - only about 6.00 p.m,. We peered through the window. It was empty of clients, and looked very modern. Not our usual choice. However we were peckish and... More

We had two meals at this restaurant, both excellent. The service is quick and friendly and why waiters are able to give good advice as to dishes to order and wine of the region. Eating outside is better than being inside where it can be hot

We were visiting Ferrara from the U.K. to meet up with family living in italy for four days. This is a smashing restaurant in the heart off Ferrara. It was pouring with rain outside but there was a very warm welcome inside. What a super restaurant. Lovely bright interiors with a super chilled counter displaying their amazing selections of hams...
