I was able to get a table for a fabulous dinner, served with love and a passion for the amazing creations coming from the kitchen and pared with amazing wines. I enjoyed it so much that I plan to go for my birthday (a big one) this year.

My greatest disappointment with this restaurant is that I visited at the end of my month long stay in Ferrara. It had a nice ambience with dim lights, low music and a modern decor. The food was delicious, with an unexpected asparagus soup starter that was wonderful, and a main course (a veal ravioli with truffles) that was a rather... More

We had a business dinner here last week. I had 'Menu di mare' which was very good. It means see food. Their dessert is also good.

Thanks to the fact we were the first ones to arrive, they did the tasting menu for two only instead for the whole table as it is a custom. We all started with amuse bouche - an excellent asparagus soup with vegetables. This turned out to be the best dish of the evening. Not saying that the rest was bad.... More

This was recommended by both TripAdvisor and my landlady, and we had a wonderful meal. The food was excellent, the wait=staff were charming, and the atmosphere just right, with some modern art on the walls. Do make reservations.

Dinner was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and would return in a heartbeat. The menu was entirely in Italian but Simone very kindly translated it all for us and gave us suggestions too - take his suggestions, they were excellent. The starters, mains, second courses and desserts were amazing. A somewhat modern take, they were excellently prepared... More

First, make sure you get good directions since this place is tucked away down more of an alley than a street. The atmosphere is lovely and servers were friendly. The food was great and I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Lovely evening in the old part of Ferrara.

I loved this restaurant, which I visited when in Ferrara for a long week-end with my wife. The restaurant had been recommended by the front-office desk at the hotel, but we did not consider it for dinner as it was described as being very small. We finally landed upon it by coincidence at lunch time, and were lucky enough to... More

A wonderful restaurant with outstanding food and service. Seafood is the specialty, but the cappellaci di zucca was a wonderful primi piatti. Not my first time to this restaurant, and will definitely not be my last.
