We ate here on a Sunday evening without a booking and were accommodated quickly, easily and in a very friendly way. I have limited Italian with which to explain my coeliac disease and therefore my gluten-free needs but the gentleman in charge, I think perhaps the son of the family, spoke excellent English and was extremely helpful. In the event... More

We've been to this restaurant several times, and we are never disappointed. The owner is very friendly and helpful and the food is very good. The cappellacci al ragu, which we've watched them make by hand, is my favorite in town. They also serve delicious steaks and house red wine. It's an authentic, charming place tucked away just off the... More

We were made very welcome immediately on arrival by the owner, who switched to English as soon as he realized my Italian was poor. He then recommended a number of dishes - all the pasta is homemade and is superb! We also had the gnocchi, again just delicious. The house red is also very good. All in all a wonderful... More

Our group all went to a restaurant recommended by our tour leader. My husband and I decided to walk around the town and stumbled upon this restaurant and what a great... More

We were walking thru the center of Ferrara . At about one pm, we started looking for a place to eat and stumbled upon this one. What a great find. We ordered three separate dishes and shared. Tortellini's stuffed with pumpkin and a donkey ragu were two especially well prepared. The waiter was very helpful and entertaining.
