Stinco di maiale

Their famous pork shank, every other review mentions it, we felt like we ought to try. Well worth experience, just look at the photo, it tastes as good as it looks! The old brewery house, traditional and cosy, popular with locals and visitors alike.

When having dinner in Försterbräu Central, we were pleased by the great service and high quality food we experienced there. The staff was friendly, very observing and our requests were quickly served. Location is central and nice, very "Alto Adige" and it felt pleasant to sit outside on the terrace on a summer evening. We were having fresh grilled fish... More

We walked past Piazza Walther and discovered this restaurant located in a beautiful Austrian-styled building. My wife had Hungarian goulash with dumplings, and I had traditional Italian lasagna. We didn't order beer, not fully realizing that they brewed it there. Both meals were quite good, though the lasagna was just OK, but tasty. Loved the salada mista, with a huge... More

I checked on Trip advisor prior the Holiday, told my friends that this might interest us as we like beer, went there and we really enjoyed the delicious meal which is very fast and enjoyed couple of beers in this warm nice and friendly restaurant. Recommended for the Maltesers who like beer and a super meal.

At first I would like to say that quality is very high, but the service is super high! All the staff is very nice and friendly. It is very clear that they care about their job and they try to carry on their task in a very devoted way, caring about the client. Most of all they are smiling and... More

I visited this place with a group of 10 friends with children for lunch. Some friends like beer and a sign with a local brand of beer was the only reason we decided to stay at this place. The restaurant was overcrowded and we waited for a large table for about ten minutes. After the order the food arrived very... More

We have lunch here whenever we visit Bolzano....and this time we are staying above Bolzano in San Genesio for some hiking, but came down on the Cable car and walked over for a lunch and some shopping. It is always packed with people and somehow the atmosphere is lively and fun and yet the food consistently good. Today's lunch of... More

Food - poor or mediocre at best, bruscetta was just a piece of bread with tomatoes and baby mozarella, virtually no basil; beef carpaccio was dry and tasteless; pasta was the only thing that was OK. Beer - home-brewed (at least claimed it), but tasted good. Service - waiters were engaged with discussing latest news, and paid little attention to... More

I have been going to Forst for lunch for many years and have taken (and recommended) friends and family there for lunches and dinners - always excellent. The food is very good value for money with all "primi" under €10 and yet the portions are almost always huge - often too much for me but if you have a big... More
