Cavallino Bianco (its German name is Weisses Roessl) is a well known restaurant not far from the Municipal Square. It has some wooden pannelled dining room and a small area where you can eat "al fresco", but under a roof.
Here they serve many typical dishes and also some fish specialities.
Closing day; saturday afternoon and sunday.
Favorite Dish: I had goulash, polenta (a kind of puree made of corn) and a dish of fresh salad. My friends had two first courses with pasta, rice and knodeln (dumplings made of bread and sometimes with meat).
This place captivated me with its charme at once and I can only highly recommend it to you!
"Fischbänke" means "fish banks" and this place used to be the old fish market of Bolzano. You can still see the marble fish banks that are now part of the outside restaurant. Various cane chairs, oleander plants and various little signs with funny and philosophical sayings on them. Most outstanding is the owner of the place, Rino Zullo, called Cobo - he is the owner of the restaurant, a cartoonist and artist and pretty well known!
Favorite Dish: We only had a little something to drink, but the bruschetta there are said to be excellent as well! So, next time I will definitely go there again and try them as well!
This restaurant is a huge restaurant, but still it has a nice atmosphere to it! There are various rooms one behind the other and a little courtyard. We had lunch here and enjoyed it quite a bit!
Despite the size this place was full, when we came there - it must have a good reputation! We shared the table with a man who goes here quite often and he, too, was very satisfied with the quality and the price.
Hubby and I both opted for a plate with 3 different kinds of food - so we did not have to decide and maybe miss out on something exceptional! Everything was very delicious, the service was very fast and very friendly and as I mentioned before - the cost of the meals were very reasonable.
This is not a restaurant but a stand on Via Stazione Bahnhofallee near the Bolzano train station that sells cheap and very very yummy German food. The owner (and his family) of the stand is very nice and friendly. You will have to stand by the stand and eat. There is no place to sit.
Favorite Dish: The stand has everything from German bratwurst to roasted chicken and all the traditional German foods. And the quality is great! The foods are served with a German salad completed with a roll.
A roasted chicken meal, for example, only costs 3 euros.
In Bolzano (Bozen in German) town centre you can find this nice and comfortable restaurant, a real institution for the town. Everybody know it. First of all, you have to be ready to be seated with other people, at least for lunch, when the restaurant is full of student and employees. At evening the ambience is much more intimate.
The menu is full of everything that Sud Tirol can offer to satisfy great appetite; the dishes are really big and you will pay for the bread only if you eat it. Otherwise, no "coperto" charge...but, like in Austria (remember that Bolzano is in Italy but most of the population is German native speaker. They speack a good Italian with a strong German accent) they expected to receive a tip.
Favorite Dish: Canederli
i tryed 3 restaurants in San Martino:
MALGA CES, ANITA and MALGA FRATTAZZA.
ANITA is the most expensive, but the service is very good, u can eat typical things as speck or particular cheese. The home wine is a Cabernet,good smell and good colour. Globally it's a little too expensive.
MALGA FRATTAZZA is the less expensive. The things to eat are all good but not good as in Anita restaurant. The wine here is better. It's beautiful palce als during the day to see the panorama
MALGA CES: i tryed the typycal menù. It's the best also in price and quality. The typycal was on Wenesday adn i assure u, u eat until u must ask to stop. ..and i eat very much. The service is optimum with little good things as to put your dishes hot before serving the meat. The people are funny.
In all the 3 restaurants people are dressed with Tirolese dresses..it's funny.
I often judge a restaurant by the quality of the glasses that they use to serve the wine. At Blaues Schiff near the Piazza del Grano they excelled. We ate twice there and the food was really good and sat outside on a warm evening it’s a great place to soak up the atmosphere of Bolzano. We had a bottle of local wine from Gries. I can’t remember the name of it but it was a deep red mature cabernet sauvignon and the waiter told us it was his favourite. Delicious.
Another local wine is a rose – it slides down very easily on a warm afternoon and you can be drunk before you know it.
On the way to Meran, just out of Bozen and quite close to the hospital (krankenhaus !) you can find Moritzingerhof a nice restaurant with typical sud-tirol food.
Favorite Dish: Filet with mushroom !!!!!!!! ... and don't forget to taste the smoked ham they usually serve you as a starter !
A completely refurbished hotel-restaurant-cafe has reopened during 2001: Hotel Citta' is located just in the main Bozen square and it looks great !!!
Not yet tried as an hotel I've been there for a drink and it was so cheap if compared to Milan that I thought they were wrong with the bill :-)))

It was mouth watering - 4 courses of very delicious food and fabulous local wines! We have been celebrating Alexander's birthday...
Favorite Dish: Try their surprise menu!!!
The area around Bolzano, Southern Tyrol, is famous for its wines. I took this picture during a wine tasting seminar in St. Pauls (city of Eppan) early June.
German style cooking. Very filling, cheap and there is an informal and friendly atmosphere. Lovely paintings on the outside of the building.
Oh, these Italian ski bars and these cute waiters working there...;-)
Just go to any ski bar on your way and have some pasta. It's great!!!
