We came 3 times in one week with my wife, once with a friend. We wanted more but one of our friend was willing to try other restaurants. We tried the menus, sea and earth menu, then we asked to try the food by surprise. We were like in heaven. Being in the Dante's city, we recommand to have the... More

We were traveling around Italy and this place was by far the best place we had eaten at! Modern, clean, comfortable setting with outstanding homey, comfort food. We just missed the days when they have live Opera singers. Great food and service and local entertainment, it doesn't get any better than this!!

Superb food in interesting surroundings. Creative menu and good wine list at prices that are a pleasant surprise if you're used to UK restaurants of this quality. Probably the best food we had in a 2 week tour taking in Milan, Cinque Terre, Florence, Ravenna and Venice. Deserves 5 stars and more.

We just came back from an awesome dinner at Cinema Alexander, where we were astonished by the quality of all dishes, the nice ambiance, the service and the general value offered to us. At €35, the "menu degustazione" is impressive value for money: it included 2 antipasti ("chianina beef tartare" and "squacquerone cheese flan and chanterelles on a soft polenta... More

An old cinema converted into an excellent restaurant. Good creative food, traditional cuisine revisited, decent prices, attentive staff run by a husband-wife team. Yes, give it a try, it is worth a visit.

The atmosphere is elegant and comfortable. The staff makes you feel welcome as soon as you walk in the door. It makes you feel like you are in someone's home. The atmosphere is spectacular and the service is outstanding. A wonderful menu! So hard to choose as there were so many great appetizers and meals. We needed to go back... More

Very great atmosphere, friendly and professional service and outstanding mixture of tastes in every single dish. The prices are also very acceptable. Certainly a "must visit" if you are in Ravenna.

We picked this restaurant because of all the great reviews here from Tripadvisor. Firstly, I was a little skeptical since I am extremely picky (I don't like most of the meat dishes and any sauces), so more or less my only safe order in a nice restaurant is fish with baked potatos. So I ordered fish with only potatos in... More

My husband and I lived in Ravenna for over three years and we visited Cinema Alexander regularly and the food was fantastic, great atmosphere, a really lovely place to spend an evening, going back to Ravenna next month after two years and can't wait to go back to Alexanders.

The Cinema Alexander is at the edge of the old town in Ravenna. Dodging bicyclists along the pedestrian friendly streets, the walk from our hotel took about 15 minutes. The building was apparently an old cinema that was converted to a restaurant although they still show films on the wall. There’s lots of whimsical décor including a chair shaped like... More
