The info seemed interesting. But then serious/dated setup, food just correct and prices a bit high. Didn't find anything to make go back to it.

Sunply a dream. I've heard about Fuocolento several times cause my friends spending their vacation in Ferrara went there several times. I was in Italy as well and it was my turn to try this experience. Simply the best restaurant I've dined in. Amazing and sublime dishes, a huge italian only wine cellar that guarantees quality and the big surprise, never sern in Italy before, of no service and water charge, they're free. There's also a variety of the best spirits between grappa, whisky and vodka. Great staff, very nice and willing, and a fantastic and friendly chef: Attilio. Definetely highly recommended.

We both really enjoyed our meals at this restaurant.All four courses were very tasty.I particularly enjoyed the guittarra with a black olive and tuna caviar sauce.Also,the signature dish of duck breast was really tender.The lady co-owner could not do enough to ensure we had a good meal.They deserve to do well and are working flat out to make this trattoria a success.Thank you,again.

Highly recommended!
We were so happy to find this restaurant and what a meal. Everything was fresh and imaginative.The chef Attilio is truly a master in the kitchen. He has a great staff who are both attentive yet discrete.
Menu full of flavours and choices...great cellar and fresh bread daily baked.
The very best in Ferrara!!!!!!

Place was empty all the time we were there. Large dining room, iMac as the cash register. Based on the reviews here we were expecting good... Bread was good. Luckily we started small, as already our primis tasted very bad: I had some disgusting dried fish pulver all around the dish and it tasted only like dried fish. My company had a similar experience with a watery tasting pasta. After trying to eat the dishes half-way we stopped our dinner and left. The dishes were really bad. I hope our experience was just an exception.
