Fodor's Expert Review L'Oca Giuliva

$$ Ferrara Italian

Food, service, and ambience harmonize blissfully at this casual but elegant restaurant inside a 12th-century building. The chef shows a deft hand with area specialties and shines with the fish dishes: his baccalà al forno (roasted salt cod, with pistachio and squid ink crumble) shifts the palate into gear. If they have the chestnut ice cream, don't miss it. There are two tasting menus, and a terrific cheese plate complements the amazing wines poured here. Patrons enter through a tiny wine bar, some pausing for a glass of wine before proceeding into the restaurant.
