The restaurant is situated in a very quiet street with nothing to give away the great experience that awaits inside. You're greeted at the door with a smile and very courteous staff. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxing, no annoying music or loud staff and the lighting is perfect. The food was exactly what we expected based on the TripAdvisor... More

A special note for Fiori di Zucchine prepared differently from the one we had few years ago in the Jewish Quarter of Rome. Started with fried baby squids excellent done. Also the home made pasta with prosciutto was very... More

I loved my experience at Ostera Callegherie. I was on my first trip to Imola, and I decided to look for restaurants on tripadvisor for lunch one day. 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 restaurant looks and feels very... More

We ate here as part of a tour with a chef from our town. Everything about the meal and overall visit were perfect. The restaurant is stunning. Very clean lines and lighting. 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
