It was almost perfect...tasting canederli with goulash, crispy bread and ice-served Forst beer. Also the prices was in the average. Service could be better but it's a must try in Bozen!

Centrally located, this is by far one of the best restaurants we visited. The roast leg of pork was cooked to perfection and almost too big to eat all, but I managed. That was the first night - the second night I tried the ribs, which were just as delicious. The beer and wine selection had anything you wanted -... More

We didn't expect too much as it was between lunch and dinnertime (3.30pm,which is always an issue in Italy), but the barbeque ribs (daily offer) was quite good in fact. The waiters were friendly and quick.

We often here and enjoy the pleasant service and good food. Certainly good for the whole family. The place has air conditioning inside and outside tables.

Great location and the place is very popular. It's enjoyable to sit on the terrace and enjoy. However, on our visit the food wasn't anything special, so the popularity must be due to the beer and location. Not for foodies. Service was professional, but somewhat rushed.

Forsterbrau is a very popular local beer in Bolzano, and I tasted for myself - they are right to like it - I do too! I had it once at another place, so I thought I'd try it again at the source, along with some food. First the good news - I love the location and the beautiful building -... More

We had a fantastic lunch at this restaurant. I ordered the "stinco di maiale con patate," pork shank with potatoes, which was fantastic. The seasoning for the shank was delicious. The outside was crispy and the inside cooked perfectly. The potatoes were heavenly! My husband ordered the "Piatto del contadino," I believe it was called, which was really good too.... More

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...
