Best place to eat in Ravenna. Enough menu-choices to eat and drink something different every night. Welcoming, unpretentious, relaxed with fabulous food and great table-service. Guests made feel at home immediately among the predominately italian/local customers. Imaginative chef, and dishes are appetisingly so well presented....More

Very nice local resturant with friendly, helpful wait staff. Nicely decorated interior with a wonderful selection of dishes. They label thier bottles of wine with a graded scale. Pay for what you drink by the markings.

Nice place, with a lot of young people and couples. Cappuccino was really good and cheap. A good place to hang out with friends.

Outside the beautiful mosaics Ravenna was slightly disappointing to us. That is, until we visited Fricando. We loved the atmosphere, the waiter and the food, especially the desert! This is definitely the best restaurant in the otherwise quite boring city. If you want real Italian...More

This worked for us after finding the city centre a little bit too twee and self conscious. Our main dishes were a sea food salad and pork with potatoes. They were substantial and well cooked and pleasantly served. We both fell for two glasses of...More
