The restaurant is located in the historic center of Imola and is located across the street of the same name, which formerly housed the workshops of the tanner, from the Latin 'callegarius'. The modern furniture, sober and elegant, enriched by statues Florentine terracotta and illuminated by soft lighting creates a warm and welcoming environment, edited by Arch. Franco Rosignolo that has created a twin in New York. To welcome you, Leonardo and Luke, while Alexander serves creative dishes in the kitchen and processed. Interesting selection of wines and spirits.

As it was the closest in terms of walking distance to my hotel, decided to take my mother there to try it out. We weren't disappointed. The... read more

Feels like a very expensive New York restaurant, but very comfortable and inviting. I just kept looking around the room admiring how well it looked. As others have... More

The whole experience was incredible here! The place is small and has a modern look but feels cozy. The food was exquisite, excellent service, and reasonable prices. Everything we ordered was delicious and beautifully presented. My parents live near Imola but had never visited this place before. They will be there again very soon!

The chef had also lived in the US, and came out... More
