Lemoko is a really nice little restaurant in the centre of Ferrara.
Finding it is a bit hard because it is located in a big courtyard next to another restaurant and the sign is quite hard to see. However, once you get there, you realize what a great place it is. It is very small, with only about 5 tables and an open kitchen.
The members of staff are very helpful and respectful.
The food is absolutely delicious!!!
The prices are also quite affordable, considering the high quality of the food.
Great experience overall!!!

It was a little hard to find this restaurant, as it's tucked away but that made it even more enticing. We had lunch in the garden on a beautiful Spring day and what a treat! They started with an amuse bouche which was an anchovy mousse in miniature seeded ice cream cones. So creative and wow! We then shared an appetizer of smoked salmon with Gorgonzola cream and celery that was outstanding. For our main course, my husband had the shrimp stuffed ravioli with squid and anchovy tomato sauce and I had scallops with lime puree and coconut potatoes. Everything was wonderful and being in the garden just added to the delight. We would highly recommend this restaurant.

During our holiday in Italy we tried several times to eat something out of the ordinary, a little more haute cuisine. We tried this in Bologna, in Venice en Modena, but we found by far the best experience in little Ferrara.
In a real romantic charming setting we discovered a small building in a middel of a garden. When we went in, we were welcomed by very friendly team of dedicated people, who explained to us what Lemoko has to offer. Lemoko is all about fish. Of course there is a beautiful á la carte menu, but there were three interesting surprise menu's, that looked very tempting to us. Two of us chose the 5-course "Raw and cooked" surprise menu and two of us went for the 5-course "Only raw fish" surprise menu.
From the very first course (tuna with asparagus in strawberry sauce) we were very, very impressed. From excellent amuse to delicious desert it was a memorable experience. We had the opportunity to personally thank chef Guido Mascellani for his high level cooking and his excellent team. BRAVO!!! We wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anybody who is looking for an unforgettable experience!

We were in Ferrara for a day n Googled for a restaurant. We called Lemoko and experienced a superbly executed meal that blew us away. The service was impeccable but what was totally unique was the style of cooking seafood which can only be described as a fusion of Japanese with French and Italian. The raw seafood dishes were totally innovative and delicious. The smoked eel was unforgettable. Tuna tataki had an extra springiness which the chef created though some marinating. The dessert of chevre with ice shavings of figs was heavenly. The restaurant is also located in a superb setting of a quiet garden which provided an extra dose of exclusiveness. Anyone who visits Ferrara and want to be rewarded with a great gourmet experience of seafood executed perfectly and uniquely, look no further!!!
