We had a most enjoyable meal consisting of local Ferrarese specialities, such as cappellacci with pumpkin filling, guinea fowl roulade, and a cube of smoked beef with mushrooms and a warm sauce made of a local cheese. Wine choices were good and reasonably priced. Dinner...More

We spent a delightful week in Ferrara, and we ate in this restaurant FOUR times! The food was varied, beautifully prepared and presented, and delicious. We could have eaten there a few more times without exhausting the menu. And the staff was friendly and helpful....More
