Fodor's Review

Locals and other cognoscenti flock to this sleek eatery just minutes away from Piazza del Duomo. Two small rooms (one white, the other with red accents) have linen tablecloths and jazz playing softly in the background. Chef Gabriele Romagnoli uses prime local ingredients to create gustatory taste sensations on a menu that changes daily: his sformatino di patate more closely resembles a French gratin, but he sauces it with salamina e Parmigiano (that deliciously

unctuous pork product made into a smooth sauce with the help of Parmesan cheese), thus rendering it deliciously Ferraresi. Fish also figures prominently on the menu, including a well-priced tasting menu. The wine list is divine, and the service, led by hands-on gregarious proprietor Mara Farinelli, is top-notch.
