Restaurants in Ferrara

La Providenza  


Providential Zuppa Inglese

Pasta Ferrarese or pasticcio di maccheroni is a delicate macaroni mixed with veal in béchamel sauce covered with a sweet pastry crust — smooth and delicate. The bollito selection was excellent: boiled beef, chicken, cotechino, hoof, and tongue. Mashed potatoes with salame da sugo, pork salami that is boiled for hours and served crumbled on top. Zuppa Inglese is a sponge cake with cream, homemade cherry preserves, and colored red with Atkemes liqueur, sweet but not cloying. Sunday and Monday night closed for dinner. — Judy Edelhoff

Ristorante Duchessa Isabella  


The stylish duchess...

Dine in this 16th-century mansion, surrounded by painted wooden ceilings, taffeta, velvet, and frescoes. Movers-and-shakers hold court in the main dining room and Evelina presides. Lovely intimate side rooms, too, in tones like sage and dusty pinks. Cialda di Parmigiano, a delicate basket of melted Parmesan cheese, held lightly fried vegetables mixed with fresh greens. Cappellacci were pasta pillows plump with pureed pumpkin or wild herbs. Lamb cutlets grilled with crisp vegetables were excellent. Faraona (guinea fowl) and pollo alla diavolo were also good. — Judy Edelhoff

Ristorante Ripa  


Ripa: Reasonable and good.

Mario runs a simple joint. Pumpkin cappellacci with ragů followed by grilled strips of beef with rughetta. The fixed price tourist menu is a good deal and includes wine and dessert. House wine might cost less than the water, but is a decent Sangiovese. — Judy Edelhoff

Trattoria La Romantica  


Bankers and professionals for a

On the southern side of town, the crowd at lunch is likely to be bankers and professionals. Does a good version of cappellacci with pumpkin filling, as well as mashed potatoes with salame da sugo. Closed Sunday night as well as Wednesday. — Judy Edelhoff
