The Restaurant

An ancient Farmhouse in the countryside of Ferrara

Italian version English version French version

Le Occare is a little and comfortable, luxury furnished, four tables restaurant,  in the surroundings of Ferrara, Emilia Romagna. The restaurant is located in an ancient farmhouse, dating back to the end of the eighteenth century, fully immersed in the green and surrounded by a fenced park with a little swimming pool, a 38000 square meters wooden area and the crops of the farm.
In a quiet and pleasant setting we take care of our guests and serve our fancy seasonal recipes, inspired to the flavours of the region. We use natural products of the farm and the wood, including mushrooms and truffles, for a creative rediscovery of old flavours. We serve traditional recipes of our territory, like the ancient "Pasticcio di Maccheroni alla Ferrarese", a very special Maccheroni Pie with truffles, dating back to the sixteenth century, from the Este court. The cooking is made in the original hand made tin-plated copper dish following the ancient recipe.

An ancient firewood oven, fully restored, allow us to serve home-made bread just out of the oven, and tarts made with the flour produced in the farm. The «ciupèta», the traditional renaissance Ferrara bread whose strange shape and precious tasting dates back to the Este court banquets, is still prepared and cooked in the traditional way in the firewood oven. The gastronomical regional specialities are still proposed revisiting the old recipes from the family tradition.
