I was in Ferrara with my wife and a couple of friends visiting from the US and we selected this restaurant for a very special evening. The food was fantastic, something definetly above normal quality of a good restaurant. If it were possible to give 6 stars I would!

Excellent quality of ingredients, creative preparation and beautiful presentation of dishes... More

Fabulous food, great service and great wine! We were drug geared a wine after we had stated our preference and it was a reasonable cost and really good. The food was top class and we would love to come back and would heartily recommend it.
