You will never find in Tours such a good food quality in typical Italian dishes ...
Try the Parma and mortadella platter as a starter and let's the Chef decide what to cook as homemade pasta for you !
Great place, great food and in an Italian mood for love ...

Go here!!!! Very traditional southern Italian food. This is not spaghetti and meat balls but true Italian food. It's very fresh and made in front of you by a very special cook/owner who sings while he works. No English menu and the waitresses don't speak English. Just point at anything on the menu. It's all good.

The chef-proprietor's cheerful enthusiasm for his work shows in the delicious flavours of his food. We arrived early and Eduardo sang lustily while he prepared our meal. His fresh pasta was superb and he suggested a vegetarian sauce which he quickly prepared - it was gorgeous. Everything about the meal was lovely - authentic fresh Italian food - and the atmosphere was great. The only thing we regretted was that we only discovered it on our last evening in Tours.

Returned to Zafferanos after an absence of some years with a little trepidation, given some of the recent negative reports on tripadvisor. However was happy to re-find Eduardo as always simultaneously beaming, singing and cooking pasta in the open kitchen. Zafferanos has maintained its standards and charming waitress (there for 19 years, a true good sign of a happy restaurant): excellent pasta, perfectly cooked and served in copious quantities. Certainly the price is a bit steep at 17€ for a plate of pasta, but the quality is excellent. I had fettucine with a saffron cream sauce, and my colleague black pasta with prawns and squid. Together with half a bottle of Chianti and two coffees the total bill was 58€. The meal was enhanced by a complementary chorizo apero and a complementary grappa as digestive.
The best table for two is by the window: it has a more space and a good view: you'll need to arrive early to get it.

We have just enjoyed the most pleasant surprise of our trip; ... Zafferano was absolutely delightful from the personal welcome from the owner/chef (who sings along with Pavoratti as he cooks) through to the complimentary Lemoncello after our meal. The freshly prepared pasta ... and the awesome desserts were very appropriately priced, as was the delicious Italian Cabernet Savignon. Wonderful!!
