This was honestly one of the best meals I've had in my life. Five courses of mouth-watering deliciousness. Each course was perfect: amazing tastes and fresh ingredients. The staff was very friendly and the restaurant went the extra mile at all times.And the value for money is unparalleled. In short, an incredible experience. Could not recommend more.

This restaurant is worth the trip alone. Fantastic food and service at Michelin quality but at a fraction of the price. One of the best seafood experiences we have had ever. Go for the tasting menu!

We spent 2 lovely evenings in Alexander. Food is superb! And the owners and staff are extremely friendly, they even were so nice to look after our little daughter to let us enjoy our dishes. Highly recommend if you want to have guaranteed quality of food and high class service

This restaurant is a must, you don’t just eat here you have an experience, it is an event, the menu is concise and varied and when presented with your choice of food you do think that the waitress was not really struggling to lift that plate due to portion size. However the restaurant and its staff are far wiser than... More

We had a wonderful evening. It really lived up to all the hype. My husband says he thought he came to Ravenna for the mosaics but he really came to eat here!!!! Many thanks to the chef, and friendly staff. We chose the degustation fish menu and a bottle of local white wine - excellent value for €99

When you walk into this restaurant, you feel that such a place will offer you some seriously good food.- and it does! You have a choice of 3 menus - tasting, fish or meat. We went for the fish menu as we both adore sea food. The home-made bread was excellent and the best we have tasted in Italy. The... More

This restaurant was one of the few open on the night we were there but it looked good and the menu was attractive. The service was excellent as was the meal.We ordered a chocolate fondant pudding but were served something that looked like a lavender mouse (I do mean mouse not mousse). We convinced ourselves that we had misread the... More

Impressed by previous TA reviews we went expecting a great meal...our expectations were surpassed by a considerable degree. We both concluded that the meals we had were quite possibly the best we had eaten in a restaurant. We were so delighted that we went back the following evening which was our last night in Ravenna for another meal. The chef's... More

One of the best meals we have ever had in Italy (where one of us was born). Clever, innovative takes on old traditions. We had two fine and unusual pastas then delicious fish (Friday night) morsels and dessert, which we often skip... Service attentive and smooth, good wine advice (a white exclusive to Emilia Romagna), prices reasonable, and funky cinema... More
