Had a beautiful olive salad followed by a pumpkin lasagne to die for.

One of the lovely owners also brought me about 8 bottles of red over for me to pick which I wanted a glass of because she didn't speak much English!

One of few restaurants that had wifi which was very useful and pretty cheap too. This place felt like a real hidden gem because of it's quirky features like the water glasses (see one of the pictures).

A small trattoria in the old part of the town. We didn't have a reservation for any restaurant in Ferrara because we arrived late afternoon so we decided to go around and look for a place to eat. This restaurant was busy, but we liked the menu and we asked if it is still possible to reserve a table for two for later. The owner was very nice, he promised that he will find a table for us if we are willing to wait.
Food was excellent, also a local wine which was recommended by a waitress. Yummy desserts. Would like to visit this place again.

Behind the rather ordinary exterior lies a venue that soon becomes obvious in no ordinart "trat". We'd had a good lunch and didn't really need much, but the menu tempted us to have 2 courses. I was particularly glad to have found a dish including eel, cooked in an unexpected way, and I couldn't resist another stater which was even more of a surprise : "pilgrim" scallops and raw prawns - heavenly. Their pasta's preety good, too. We also enjoyed two unusual local wines, which the very obliging waitress helped us to choose. A very pleasant experience - best to get there before all the locals" in the know", especially on a Sunday evening, when most places closed.

It's hard to find a restaurant without a reservation in Ferrara, so we were fortunate to get a table here. The atmosphere is different: quirky and modern, and the food is awesome. Everything was fresh, beautiful. Lots of vegetarian options.
