We had an amazing meal here. The restaurant is located in the old Jewish quarter of the medieval city of Ferrara. Tucked away down an atmospheric cobbled lane this place was a real find. Ask to be fed and you won't be disappointed. We sat...More

That's a nice place to go out and hangout with person you care about. It doesn't have a big room so it is not suggested for big groups but it is warm and nice for the ambient. Just the paintings are a bit awkward compared...More
