No English menu but our charming hostess went through the whole menu with us. Lovely atmosphere and the food was amazing. The recommended wine was also perfect. A delightful lunch. Ok it's all fish, not usually my own first choice, but I really enjoyed this meal more than any other in Italy. If you like fish I can't recommend it... More

Fantastic food, good service. Off the beaten path of Ferrara, but worth exploring the back alleys to find.

My wife had business in Bologna, and we decided to stay in Ferrara. Great little town but Trattoria le Nuvole was the highlight. We stumbled on this restaurant and were lucky enough to get a table early. The owner made us feel very welcome and spoke very good English. The staff went out of the their way to make sure... More

We were very surprised to find such elaborate cuisine. The courses were beautiful, sophisticated and juste delicious. The service was very nice, the free amuse bouche of aubergine and shrimp was a nice bonus!

The owner has given us such a warm welcome, explaining all the menu in English, we have had a great lunch. We enjoyed a nice glass of white wine, and the food was great tasting and so well presented, including desert. She also offered us limoncello ! We ate outside but the interior is inviting.

We were married in Ferrara and return each September for our wedding anniversary. For three years we have been looking for a special place to dine on our special day and this year found it. We were guided a bit by the TripAdvisor reviews and that it is located out of the main touristy centre (which in fact is not... More

We, my son, daughter and myself went for dinner here after spending the afternoon in piacevole Ferrara. I did not realize Le nuvole were specialized in seafood. When i mentioned to Signorina Elisabetta, the very charming owner, that because of this we were a bit in difficolta, she offered to make us anything we liked. What a great host she... More

My friend and I had dinner in the very small outside seating area of this restaurant. The food was wonderfully fresh and refined. Spaghetti al nero with clams and another kind of pasta for my friend were delicious, and would have warranted 5 stars if the clams and mussels mixed with the pasta had come warm as well. The tuna...

The trattoria has a distinct coastal touch to it even though we are in the Po Valley. However, the menu has a very distinct seafood bias too. The restaurant is light, but not sterile and could have been in The Hamptons, Cote d'Argent or Cornwall aswell. The clientel is predominantly 30 something and Italian. (Which in my book is fine!)...

We stayed in Ferrara just one night on our trip back to Venice and I couldn't expect that great pick of restaurant for only one dinner in the city! The restaurant is very popular so better make sure you have reservation before your dinner! Food is really amazing, Italian traditional with fancy and modern twist. We had few different kind...
