Having heard that the Michelin-starred Don Giovanni had closed, I was intrigued to read that the chef had opened a little deli counter-cum-restaurant in a quiet residential street in Ferrara. I think the reviews below are for his previous incarnation, not this brand new place...More

I visited this restaurant with my wife with very high expectations. The service is perfect and the waiters are very kind, but the food was not the top class that you would expect from a place like that. I will not come back, sorry about...More

Slightly hidden inside a building that was the worlds first stock exchange, this is a gem of a restaurant. You have to order the spaghetti AOP, spicy and addictive. This is one of the top 3 restaurants in Ferrara, absolutely worth a stop. Casual, no...More

Friendly and intimate atmosphere, perfect service. Large wine list with reasonably priced wines. Meat (pigeon, lamb) absolutely to the point, taste of everything well balanced. Nice interim courses (pre and apres desert, fe). Sweets very creative and excellent. Strong recommendation!

I am surprised that this restaurant is not higher up in the rankings on trip advisor. In fact I think it is among the best in Ferrara. Located in a beautiful court in front of the castle, with a nice atmosphere and great innovative food....More

Food excellent, very well served in this very tiny restaurant (only few tables in winter). Excellent fish, very tasty ravioli, perfect desserts. The only drawback is the bill, well beyond the expectations. Seventy euros for few flutes of "prosecco" is definitely too much.More
