We enjoyed our life as one of the finest pizzas. The wine was excellent. Young staff are quick and kind. The atmosphere is super-moody. We ate outside on the terrace. We were many, but the staff smiled and had their energy. Thank You!

The pizza is good. Used ingredients of good quality. Service is a little messy. I had the feeling they were pushing us out of the restaurant. There are better places in ferrara.

Well populated by the youth and young adults of Ferrara; lots of good vibes, English spoken and pizzas produced very quickly (and very nice too!)

Had a really nice dinner here, enjoyed the menu (a large selection of pizzas named after philosophers) will be returning on future trips. It had the locals approval and I think that is very good in a town with this many restaurants!

This is an OK restaurant. It is well located, right next to the hotel we stayed. There is nothing special about it though.

We went with a big group of international friends who came to visit Ferrara, it was about 7 of us. From the beginning the waiter showed no patience with us, the restaurant was busy, it was a summer night during Baskers Festival so there was...More
