We decided to dine here after a long travel day and because it was near our hotel. We had a very pleasant experience! Sergio, the proprietor, was amazing. He truly takes pride in what he does and made our meal fabulous. We loved the hand-written wine menu, the amazing fish, cappelacci and prosecco. We would definitely dine here again and... More

I found this little gem while exploring the central area of Ferrara. Lunch was a really enjoyable experience, excellent food and wine served by a friendly and helpful waitress. Recommended.

This restaurant has a quaint Italian authenticity; the owner is really friendly and helpful. Not overly expensive, the ingredients are of the finest quality and the house wine is either merlot or a very respectable Sangiovese. We hade homemade pumpkin pasta with sage butter and pumpkin and potato gnocchi with tomato, rocket and Parmesan; absolutely divine! Recommended!

Gracious host, good food, nice house wine. Service was good and staff were very attentive. Nothing was 'spectacular', but can't fault it in any way.

Very good service with an owner who tries very had to engage with his guests. The environment is very welcoming and ideal for a group of friends/family, rather than a date. The food is typical, good, but not exceptional. I think any average housewife in Ferrara can cook as better. The prices are reasonable though. In my case, at least,... More

I tried this restaurant for lunch. Whilst the service was friendly, the food was quite disappointing. I tried a local wine which tasted of vinegar and told the patron this. The local bread that was brought was stale - not necessary these days. I ordered a pasta dish with mushrooms. It was hot and quickly brought, and it was too... More

Friendly (speak English, helped us learn some Italian), good food, good wine, reasonably priced. In my view strikes an excellent balance between too formal and informal cafes. Highly recommended, will go again!
