Some place!!!! It's hide on the countryside of Bologna, actually, nearby Castelmaggiore. The "lumache" are sensational !!! Taste and presentation are really over the rate!!!! I'll definitely comeback soon!!! The place is beautiful, wine choice (Franciacorta) was great!!! ... and the personal has a special attention to all of us! Just love it!!!

Greeted by the owner who explained the menu to us in English. I ate vegetarian as they were happy to cook and my husband had a fish dish. Starters were our favorite my zucchini flan and his anchovies with buratta were simple and amazingly!

We went here with some friends on the last night of our holiday and it was really nice. The owner was extremely hospitable and we had some really nice local dishes in a traditional upmarket environment with great service.

We visit this restorante for several years, two times a year at least, and evry visit we are welcomed with open arms by the owner of the restorante and his warm family. The food is excellent, the service is very good, and the place is warm and nice.evry time when we come to italy from Israel we must visit there.

In the small towns around Ferrara, our parents and grand parents use to eat frogs and snails; nowadays you can hardly find such a food in the Restaurant. In "La Chiocciola" you can find both and enjoy also very fresh see food coming from the Adriatic see. The menu is not that wide but, for this kind of restaurants it... More

As the Italians say this place is otimo. We have been three times and always had a lovely experience. The set menu changes with the seasons and always offers a nice surprise.
