Fodor's Review

Ferrara is a city of wine bars, beginning with this one—allegedly Europe's oldest—which opened in 1435. Copernicus drank here while a student in the late 1400s, and the place still has a somewhat undergraduate aura. Most of the staff and clientele are twentysomethings. Perfectly dusty wine bottles line the walls, and there are wooden booths in another small room for those who want to eat while they drink. A young staff pours well-selected wines by the glass, and offers three different sauces (butter-and-sage, tomato, or ragù) with the cappellacci di zucca (pasta stuffed with butternut squash). Those in search of lighter fare might enjoy any of the salads or the grilled vegetable plate with melted pecorino.
