Being Persian myself, I was shocked and amazed to find an Iranian restaurant in Bologna?! However, I was beyond impressed! Living in Europe, it's not always easy to find good Persian restaurants but Pars definitely met and exceeded my expectations! They have a full menu offering the best Persian dishes. Also, the owners are truly kind and hospitable. Thank you!

We ordered a diverse mixture of food, including chicken and lamb and beef kabobs. Quality was high. Restaurant is a little outside city center ($10 euro can ride) but it was well worth the trip. Highly recommended, especially after a week of Italian food this was a great meal!

I've eaten at some excellent Persian restaurants both in the US and in the Gulf (especially Kuwait and UAE). So when a friend who lived in Bologna for two years told me it was his favorite restaurant there we had to try it. The combination appetizer was very good (the dolmeh and eggplant were among the very best I've ever... More

We were so looking forward to this after reading hundreds of 4/5 star reviews. Expectations were high and to be honest on the whole we were rather underwhelmed. The service was good, the decor pleasant and the pistachio icecream flavored with rose water was delicious. They are also good with kids here and our girls - who are very picky... More

When in Bologna, eat Italian, Right? Well, this restaurant was recommended for a change and what a pleasant change. The food was simply outstanding, the space was nice, clean and well appointed. The service was perfect from the warm greeting, thru the meal and thru and lovely goodbye by "Mama".

Pars is not a restaurant that's easy to find. It's somewhere behind the trainstation and you need Google Maps to find it. But once you're there it's worth it. I ate Kaska Bodenta (hope the spelling's right) first: a mousse of eggplant. Nice. Main course: Kubideh , which is Persian kebab. It was delicious. Very rich flavours. The best thing... More
