Located in a small side street, this restaurant was highly recommended to us by our guide, we were not disappointed, great Italian home made food, very generous portion, great ravioli, nice local wines and very reasonably priced, would certainly go there again

Most restaurants were full on a Saturday night. Found this restaurant down a side street that could accommodate a table for 2. Service was friendly and welcoming. Food ok, nothing special. The decor was old fashioned and could do with updating, especially the toilets which...More

While walking from the Castello, we glanced up a narrow street and saw the sign for this restaurant but we almost missed it. Knowing that off-the-main beat restaurants often serve better food at reasonable prices, we decided to try this. We weren't disappointed. The service...More

Just off the Ferrara castle, somehow hidden in the side alley is the Postman inn. Very Italian. Unpretentious, and really lovely pasta and ravioli. Fresh and fullfilling. Really nice waitress and charming little "garden" (street) tables makes it a perfect stop for lunch or diner....More

Food acceptable but let a bit down by inexperienced service (waitress did not know the ingredients of the ragu) and blandness of delivery. Portions are on the generous side, and the whine by the glass is more than acceptable. Would probably go back but with...More

Small place, seems to be more pub than a restaurant, but food is really good. Waitress speaking fluent english, not easy to find in ferrara!

Ate here on a Saturday evening. Service was good and friendly, our waitress spoke good English. The food was good (I had really flavourful pasta with gorgonzola sauce, and the Salumi di Sugo, a Ferrara speciality) and great value - 55 euros for two primi,...More

In front of the castle in a small and quiet alley. The tables outside are very romantic (little bit dark). The cusine isn't generouse (very small portion) but offers a typical Emilian menu. If you go there in summer remember that there isn't air conditioning...More
