“Fantastic...and NO PASTA!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

There are few good ethnic restaurants in Bologna, but Pars Persian cuisine is the best! First, you're greeted with a warm smile (a rarity in Bologna). The intimate space is candlelit and cozy with plenty of easy parking out front (a rarity in Bologna). Selections include lamb, chicken, and a large choice of vegetarian dishes (a rarity in Bologna). What you won't get at this restaurant is PASTA (a rarity in Bologna)! Prices are fair and the truly Iranian hostess and her daughter are lovely and welcoming. They meet your every need and even help you figure out what goes where on the plate if you're unfamiliar with the cuisine. Pars occasionally features live entertainment, although I haven't been there for it yet. Local wines served - absolutely our favorite restaurant after two years of living in Bologna! The best!

“Best ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2013

I completely fell in love with Persian cuisine thanks to this beautiful restaurant! Well, Persian cuisine is generally not the healthiest in the world, it's a bit heavy - just like our Russian one, but it's deliciouuuus!!! The decoration is amazing, all is genuinely Iranian as the host told me; the background music selection creates a very particular ambience - as if you're not in Italy at all, as if behind the door are the streets of Shiraz! The host Sohyla is an incredibly hospitable Iranian woman, full of true Persian dignity and respect. The meal was fantastic, the chicken as soft as i've never eaten before, the Iranian yogurt drink is not for everyone but i liked it a lot too. A bit expensive, but it is worth it.

“Excellent Persian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

Located outside the town center, this restaurant offers great Persian food. The Chello kebabs were excellent (a tad too expensive in my opinion though) and their traditional drink dough quite refreshing. The atmosphere was nice and the presentation of the kebabs creative. Overall highly recommended.
