They make their own pasta every day, so you get great pasta dishes at very reasonable prices. The wine list is very adequate and the service is cheerful and efficient. You can make this your home-away-from-home restaurant in Ferrara.

We were a bit surprised because the interior doesn't look like on the older photos - obviously they have done a renovation recently. It is more modern now, but I would prefer the old style. We started with a selection of local cold cuts. Very good mortadella and a nice cold version of the famous local salama dish. Pasta was... More

Our hotel recommended this place to us and we couldn't have been happier. They were very accommodating to our 6 year old, and made her a simple pasta dish, even though it wasn't listed on the menu. The traditional Ferrara tasting menu that my husband and I had was delicious. The owner was very helpful in helping us pick out... More

There are lots of gelato places in central Ferrara, but not many real restaurants, especially on Sunday's and Monday's. The one we found proved to be a good choice, with friendly service and good Ferrarese food. As the name implies, the restaurant is centrally located on a quiet side street very close to the cathedral. The owner served us himself,... More

The restaurant we were headed for was closed on a Sunday evening, so we wandered in search of a place to find cucina locale. Lucky for us to stumble into Ristorante Centrale in the center of town (duh). The owner and waitstaff were incredibly hospitable, appreciated our imperfect Italian and made some excellent suggestions from the menu. The cappellacci dishes... More

The restaurant was suggested to us by the receptionist at the hotel. I am very glad we took his advice and booked a table here. The owner/host was very helpful, and the love for his job was evident throughout our meal. there is no wine list but the owner was very helpful in suggesting a wine which suited our requirements....
