This is one of the most expensive restaurant in town. Nonetheless, it's real value for money, due to the high quality of the dishes. We ordered the octopus to start and this is one of the ultimate test for a chef. It was exceptional, soft and tender, with a mild sauce that complemented it really well. You can taste that... More

We have been here twice in our stay in Ferrara: once for dinner and once for lunch. The first time, we got here by mistake, since many restaurants we had on the list were full. Environment is nice. It gives you intimacy and it has the old-building feel. You can leave your clothes at the wardrobe at the entrance. Service... More

We have eaten here a number of times during the recent years. In the beginning as a couple and later with our son. Each time we received a warm welcome and were well looked after. We have had the dish with the dried fish as well and especially our son enjoyed it very much. I do understand that the dried... More

I was in Italy as well and it was my turn to try this experience. Simply the best restaurant I've dined in. Amazing and sublime dishes, a huge italian only wine cellar that guarantees quality and the big surprise,... More

We both really enjoyed our meals at this restaurant.All four courses were very tasty.I particularly enjoyed the guittarra with a black olive and tuna caviar sauce.Also,the signature dish of duck breast was really tender.The lady co-owner could not do enough to ensure we had a good meal.They deserve to do well and are working flat out to make this trattoria...

Highly recommended! We were so happy to find this restaurant and what a meal. Everything was fresh and imaginative.The chef Attilio is truly a master in the kitchen. He has a great staff who are both attentive yet discrete. Menu full of flavours and choices...great cellar and fresh bread daily baked. The very best in Ferrara!!!!!!

Luckily we started small, as already our primis tasted very bad: I had some disgusting dried fish pulver all around the dish and it tasted only like dried fish. My company... More

I was passing through Ferrara and a friend of mine suggested I tried this place out. It's in the centre but not anywhere too touristy, so we enjoyed walking though the quaint streets of Ferrara. The atmosphere was very jovial when we entered, and the decor is a mixture between classical and modern with contemporary paintings of the walls. Plus... More
