Ferrara: Zafferano

Via Fondobanchetto 2/A , Phone: 0532 763492

Closing day: Monday

Reviewed by: jgk from FL, review #1609

When: 2004

Zafferano means saffron and this 12 table restaurant is painted a beautiful bright yellow with warm service to match. The food is creative "nuovo Italiano".

We loved this place! We started with a delicious Sicilian Chardonnay recommended by the woman who was hostess and server (and I think owner). Starters included a dish of short, homemade pasta with a parsley pesto, little clams and shrimp. I had "monkey-fish" balls with favas and grated cheese. The little balls were tasty but the dish as a whole kinda missed. The best of the starters was black tortelli stuffed with fish with a beautiful, perfectly seasoned seafood sauce. For secondo we had the fantastic guinea fowl, faronna, with a sweet wine sauce and a caponatta. Also had a delicate filet of dentrice with potato cream sauce. I ordered another starter, "tepid duck breast" with a wonderful sauce. Great desserts and after dinner wine, too.
