I really enjoyed the two pasta dishes I had! The owner was charming and gave us information about the Jewish ghetto area. She made a mistake on the bill but gladly changed it. Portions on the small side but still delicious. Very evocative setting outside...More

We all felt that this restaurant offered more than it delivered. The service was chaotic & the food very average. I had turbot, which I was looking forward to but unfortunately, it was very disappointing - not cooked well at all. Some of our party...More

Recommended to this restaurant by our hotel. Food a bit hit and miss: fried anchovies sublime and worth the price of admission alone, dessert —— highly talked-up by the slightly doddery owner — was appalling. Allegedly it was based on an old Jewish recipe but...More

I truly recommend this restaurant. It is located at the first floor of a very calm street. The decoration is nice and the atmosphere is very cozy. One important thing to me is that they are Pet Friendly, I visited for new year's dinner and...More

The restaurant is not exactly close to Ferrara's main attractions. The good thing is that there are very few tourists and plenty of locals. So in summary excellent italian food in a quite old fashion restaurant. Fits quite well with your expectations of a traditional...More
