Ferrara Lounge Italian Restaurant is the newest edition to the ever growing food scene in Yinzhou, which has welcomed a great many restaurants in the past few years. This is by far the best entry to the lot. We were able to sit down with owner and manager Filippo Pisciotta one afternoon following the restaurant’s July 30th opening to discuss Ferrara and have a taste of their wonderful food.

With Ferrara, Filippo hopes not only to bring reasonably priced fine Italian cuisine to the city, encompassing the experience in an open contemporary space quite unlike the other fine Italian restaurants in the city, but to not make any compromise when it comes to balancing the need to attract Chinese and foreign customers to his new establishment.

To do this, Filippo has hired an Italian chef with over 50 years experience to man things in the kitchen and has crafted a menu that both Chinese and foreigners can enjoy. To further accomplish his goal, some dishes have been tweaked for varying tastes without sacrificing flavor, such as the Florentine-style T-Bone. “We cook the meat to the traditional specifications,” explains Filippo, “but we bring it out on a grill with three kinds of sauces to give guests the opportunity to cook it to their desired tastes.”

While at the restaurant we were able to try their Homemade Tagliatelle with Black Truffle Sauce (95 RMB) and their Panna Cotta (28 RMB). The pasta was being made when we entered the restaurant, so it was quite the treat to see what we would be soon eating being made to order, and it wasn’t disappointing. The smooth flavor of the truffle imparted itself nicely into the creamy sauce and freshness of the tagliatelle, giving it a refreshing taste that wasn’t too over the top.

The panna cotta was equally impressive, served elegantly with fresh fruits in an immaculate glass. The first bite opened our eyes, as the taste of fresh vanilla could be felt right away, working perfectly with the sliced apple, kiwi, and melon.

Ferrara is all about quality without the sacrifice of flavor, reasonable prices, and quality ingredients, the majority of which are all imported from Italy. This newest edition to Ningbo’s strong Italian game is one of the best we’ve encountered, and its definitely worth the visit.

 

Ferrara为鄞州日益多样的美食盛况注入了新的活力,在过去的几年里,数不胜数的餐厅在鄞州扎根,而这家餐厅绝对是迄今为止最好的一家。在开业盛典后的一个下午,我们与Filippo Pisciotta同席而坐,一边聊聊Ferrara,一边品尝他们的美食。

说到Ferrara,Filippo希望这家餐厅不仅能为这座城市带来味美价优的意大利美食,让顾客在这样一个开放式的、充满当代气息的弧形大厅里享受到不同于宁波其他优质意大利餐厅的用餐体验,还能在兼顾中国和外籍顾客的需求时不降低食物的品质。

为此,Filippo雇佣了一位拥有50年烹饪经验的意大利厨师并且精心制作了一份适合中外顾客用餐的菜单。为了进一步实现他的目标,在不破坏口感的情况下,其中一些菜品拥有几种不同的口味以便满足不同人群的需求,比如佛罗伦萨风味丁骨牛排。“我们运用传统的烹饪方法来煎牛排,”Filippo解释道,“但是我们把牛排放在烤架上时,有3种不同的酱汁可供选择,从而让顾客有幸品尝到他们所期望的那种味道。”

在这家餐厅里,我们品尝了他们自制的撒有黑松露酱的意大利干面条(95元)和意式奶油布丁(28元)。意大利面在我们走进餐厅时就已经在做了,所以我们有幸见证了这份意大利面的制作过程,而且其味道并未让我们失望。黑松露的丝滑口感与奶油沙司以及新鲜的干面条相得益彰,其口感是恰到好处的鲜爽可口。

意式奶油布丁相当不错,搭配新鲜的水果,优雅地置于一个洁白无瑕的玻璃杯中。第一口咬下去就让我们眼前一亮,清新的香草味着实不赖,与苹果薄片、奇异果和火龙果也能完美契合。

在保留其原有口感的情况下,顾客们在Ferrara可享受到优质食物和佐料以及合理的价格,这里的大多数食材都是从意大利进口的。这是宁波意大利美食界最新颖的一家,也是我们品尝过的最棒的一家,绝对值得你一试。
