Good food and friendly service. Lot of salumi and formaggio available. Pasta and salad was excellent. Highly recommended.

Went here as our planned restaurant was unexpectedly closed so last minute walk in and we were running out of time for dinner. Welcome was brusque and service slow and functional. Food was ok but nothing special. The staff were inattentive so we didn't bother with dessert. Wouldn't return

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel, but we were so disappointed. We ordered stuffed courgette flowers, and they came with such a heavy batter they were inedible. No explanation or offer of an alternative, so I am afraid we left. Would not recommend this place to anybody. Avoid.

This is a good restaurant that knows how important the ingredients are. You can see that they take special care in selecting them by only looking at the menu of cold cuts and cheeses. We opted for pasta only since we needed a light lunch. All the pasta was served in small pans which adds to the pleasant, informal atmosphere... More

On our way to Venice we stopped in Ferrara for lunch at this restaurant. I was with two sophisticated friends from Palo Alto. The mixed antipasto with excellent prosciutto so and cheeses was delicious. Once again I had the sublime angliotti con brodo and was blown away by the taste. Service, ambiance, and the food quality make this a must... More

This is an excellent restaurant. If you are in Ferrara and are looking for a good place to eat in the center of this beautiful city - go here. Does not really matter what you order - it is all good and reasonably priced

We booked dinner here for our group of 25 with a fixed menu and everyone loved it. We liked the food being brought to the table for us to help ourselves. The 2 pasta starters were delicious, as was the guinea fowl with chestnut stiffing. It is very central and easy to find with a bright enticing appearance. We also... More

True, genuine Ferrara food experience. Good, attentive service and wide selection of choices. Possibly a little bit expensive if compared to other restaurants in the area but overall worth the expense. Cappellacci di Zucca alone are worth a visit!!
