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

We tried this restaurant on our second night in Ravenna. It was so good, we went back twice. We were not disappointed either time. Consistently fantastic. The other reason we returned and would have done so more had time permitted is that the menu had so many wonderful things...the gamberi crudo di Mazara, the piccione, the carpacio of fillet of...

We experienced this restaurant during a special event consisting on a menu with Sangiovese wine tasting. Great evening with very tasting food and excellent service by the staff and the owners. This 5 service menu was offered for a very attractive price below 40 €. The place is definitely worth the money and we would certainly chose it for a... More

The wait staff was so smiley, and helpful. They worked hard. The atmosphere was very fun. The food was great. Keep in mind that is a candlelight dinner, with expensive wine, but still reasonable prices! Here was our problem: The management was allowing other guests' children to run around and scream and make noise, which completely killed the mood and... More

We dined here twice during our trip to Ravenna in April 2013 and found it to be a wonderful restaurant with superb food of at an affordable price. The waitress who served us spoke excellent English and was very accommodating to our requests, serving us a large shared salad as a starter, and anticipating our tastes the second time we... More
