First class restaurant

The restaurant is located in a quiet part of Bolzano with a terrace and the food and service is excellent. The salmon was perfectly cooked, the desert superb and the cost reasonable. Well worth visiting.

We stumbled onto this restaurant with street side tables on Leonardo Da Vinci Strasse and liked that they offered grilled bronzino, so we sat down. The location was at a very busy pedestrian intersection, so loads of fun people watching. The food was terrific, and they customized our dishes to our requests without a hitch. This was one of the...

If you're looking for something typical, here you go. You can find everything South Tyrol can offer, the choose is up to you. The service is very quick and you can have your meal on the terrace outside, right in the city center.

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
