I tried this restaurant for lunch. Whilst the service was friendly, the food was quite disappointing.
I tried a local wine which tasted of vinegar and told the patron this. The local bread that was brought was stale - not necessary these days. I ordered a pasta dish with mushrooms. It was hot and quickly brought, and it was too salty. Whilst the staff were kind and the service efficient, this was one of the poorest meals I encountered during a two week trip to Italy. The hotel I was staying with in Ferrara said they would not have recommended me to this hotel for the above reasons: Poor inferior wine passed off as a typical local speciality, and stale bread. Also the bill was higher than I had been experiencing for similar menus. There are lot of much better restaurants in this area offering better value. The restaurant was almost empty on a Saturday lunchtime, and I am not surprised given the meal cost 4 euros more than in other restaurants for similar food.

Friendly (speak English, helped us learn some Italian), good food, good wine, reasonably priced.
In my view strikes an excellent balance between too formal and informal cafes.
Highly recommended, will go again!

The food, and the experience, were amazing at this restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious and the staff serenaded us after we finished eating. If you are traveling to Ferrara, put this restaurant on your to do list.

On Monday evening my husband and I were invited to dinner with a work colleague/friend. It was our first time at Osteria la Compagnia but it definitely won't be our last, especially as we have moved in across the square.

We had the most amazing dining experience and the staff were wonderful particularly Sergio Jacuvella the owner and Enrico Petrelli the Waiter/Manager.

We were so well treated we felt as if we were family members and had the honour of Sergio serenading us.

We have only been in Ferrara 3months so our Italian is not yet understandable hence using 'Google Translate'.

Next month is our Silver Wedding Anniversary and we will be choosing here to celebrate!

We can't wait to go back!
