Staying in Suite Elite but as a solo traveller it is not worth the 10 euro extra to use my kitchen. After an exhausting Saturday in Ferrara I didn't want to go uptown to dine. I started with an antipasti of Piccolo Tartar which was sublime and opted for a first course and desert. The Tagliatelle Ragu was the best... More

Cordon Bleu restaurant is part of Grand Hotel Elite (I've got this impression) and as I had room in hotel I decided to eat there. I booked table in advance (as recommended by hotel staff) and when I arrived I was the only one. Restaurant itself is not bad. Prices are also fine. Staff rather professional and helpful, professional and... More

I stayed in the hotel in the same building. But first I tried to find a restaurant in the nearest streets. One of them was full, in another one I didn't like the menu (only pasta and sandwiches) so I returned to this restaurant and it was good decision. Mixed seafood consisted of gambers and calmars and was normal. Chicken... More

Restaurant is in the hotel where we were staying and has amazing breakfasts! On the first night my family enjoyed Italian dishes and I also enjoyed a lovely lasagne for dinner, followed by apple tart & icecream on another night. Great value.

Food was OK, but expected more. Service was cordial but not as nice as other restaurants in the area.

The food was very bland. Unfortunately, I've had better tasting Italian food in England. The food was not very satisfying, cold and our main came out in dribs and drabs but the service was so slow we had actually finished our main meal before the side dishes were brought out to us. Very disapointing
