Food was felicious and price was not that high. Ask for local specialties and you will never regret to try. Ambiance was also very cool with lots of items and photos representing historical background of restaurant.

This excellent restaurant is located in the mediaeval part of Ferrara. It serves excellent local dishes and the service is superlative. It is vastly superior to the tourist traps in the centre of town.

We ate traditional Ferrarese food, which was very nice and appropriately priced. The waiter who attended us addressed our requests rudely and with a condescending manner that made us feel uncomfortable. It spoiled our experience of an otherwise pleasant environment.
