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...

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.

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.

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
