very close to the cathedral, this restaurant has a very long list of pizza. I went 3 times in the first 2 weeks of September and I'm so satisfied! The value for money also is significant. I believe that anyone that like pizza, will be satisfied.

Nice and not expensive restaurant, just a few steps away from the cathedral. We had a pizza (which was thin, crispy and huge) and a chicken dish with salad. Food is good, service is good, value for money.

I sent it back, waiter apologised. My partners pizza burnt at the edges all the way around. I asked for the bill, guess what ? He... More

Had a calzone for dinner here and wasn't very impressed. The sauce was so watery that the dough got soggy and the mushrooms were canned. I won't recommend this place to anyone.

We took a pizza here (from Hotel Nazionale), with bresaola. Very good, I wish I had one now to eat! We took it to our room, so cannot say much about the service.

We came upon this casual place on the recommendation of a resident of Ferrara. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere casual. Tables were full with couples, Singles and students. The antipasti we shared was beyond excellent and I only hope I cab recreate back home. A slice of polenta topped with pancetta and mozerella and then baked. Devine! The... More

"I Sofisti" e' una pizzeria che propone anche altri piatti. Secondo i gusti della nostra famiglia, serve una delle migliori pizze della citta'. Oltre ad avere una ricchissima scelta di pizze e calzoni diversi, la pasta e' ben lievitata e digeribile e i condimenti di buona qualita'.
