We ate like royalty here and came out spending about $30 US a piece here (not including drinks). We had a grilled meat plate which rocked my husbands world. I also quite enjoyed it and ate way too much. Service was spectacular and the design is clean, modern, and refined. I would go again.

The location is difficult to find, we were heavily indebted to our hotel and their map in getting there. We still walked right past the side street it is on, an extremely quiet side street, but upon doubling back saw a sandwich-board sign making known the direction to the trattoria. On arrival you find a very modern interior, open and... More

Had a very good Sunday meal while we waited for the horse race to start. Too bad the race got rained out. Food was very good, children were all over the place. Family restaurant. I would recommend it.

We had booked for a group and chosen a fixed menu in advance. Top quality, excellent friendly service and everyone loved it., It is not the easiest place to find, but worth it, Definitely recommend it.

We were lucky enough to enjoy a spectacular 4 course Easter lunch here. Everything was delicious! The wine list and service were superb. The menu was a set one since it was Easter, but based on what we had, I have no doubt that their normal menu is outstanding. Highly recommend

We decided to go with seafood this time and enjoyed every second of it. Knowledgeable and inventive chef and supportive waiters who charitably don't try to impress you, only help you with expert suggestions. We had as appetizers codfish with asparagus and capesante with truffles. Simply divine. As second course, oven-baked umbrine and fried fish and vegetables. Superb.

First of all, the food was very traditional Ferrararese taste was spectacular. You should have a reservation, otherwise it's hard to find a place. As most of the good Italian Trattorias it is noisy when it is full, but from my point of view it is a plus.

Italians, living in London for almost 10 years so missing food and traditions, so for us Ca' d'Frara is a must! From pinzini to cappellacci everything is outstanding and service is always friendly and speedy, definitely our favourite Ferrara eatery! To try!
