Fodor's Review

Just down the street from Castello Estense, this warm and inviting restaurant offers a handful of tables inside a lovely 17th-century palace. Chef Pier Luigi Di Diego and partner Marco Merighi pay strict attention to what's seasonal, and the menu reflects this. Here tortellini are stuffed with guinea fowl and sauced with zabaione (custard), Parmesan, and prosciutto croccante (fried prosciutto). Equally inventive is the delicate tegame di pernice rossa

ai frutti di bosco (partridge in a fruit sauce), which delights the palate. Next door, the same proprietors run the less expensive, but more crowded, La Borsa. This trendy wine bar has excellent cured meats, cheeses, lovely primi and secondi, plus a fantastic wine-by-the-glass list. (Note the wine bar is open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant for dinner only.)
