Very professional service and good quality food. A level above the average Ferrara restaurant, plus a more interesting menu. Represented value for money, quality at a reasonable price. The kitchen is glass enclosed, in view and is immaculate.

The food was a little too fussy and in my opinion overpriced. I ordered spaghetti with anchvies, it was well presented but incredibly oily and smelled very fishy. I couldnt eat it.

The setting seams really posh but at the end the ratio between quality and costs is absolutely good. Follow the suggestions of the staff: you won't make mistakes!

We found good food, with some regional food from Puglia, an excellent wine list, and a good service. A little bit too expensive.

This very fine family-operated restaurant is located on a side street a short walk from the Castello and Cattedrale in the historic center of Ferrara. While seafood, including fresh fish cooked to order, is the speciality, home made pasta and other treats are also on offer. Very nice surroundings, a lengthy wine list, accomplished service, and starched linens with roses... More
