Food was average--not terrible, but nothing great. Service was extremely unfriendly and cold. The man (maybe the owner?) tried a little bit at least, but a young waitress working there made us feel very unwelcome. Quite expensive and the food definitely not worth it. There are far better places in Ravenna. Wines were good--the only redeeming aspect.

We were so impressed by this place! If you want stunning food and excellent service this is the place for you. The menu was clever without being 'over the top'. The chef really knew how to cook. Ingredients were well matched and flavours were sublime. Service was friendly and efficient.

Brilliant space! Converted from a cinema but a 14 century church originally. A lot of money had clearly been spent on the place. Buzzing atmosphere but service excellent. We had (fish) tasting menu which was great. Meat dishes and a la carte also available. Very reasonable price for a meal which deserved a Michelin star.

We ate at Cinema Alexander in July 2016. Two couples, we all had a first and second course followed by dessert. All of us were thrilled with our brilliantly presented choices. The chef is innovative and the results are delicious. This was one of the best meals in our travels.

My husband and I visited Alexanders Restaurant in June 2016. It was recommended by a local couple from Ravenna. It was fine dining at a very competitive price. The restaurant had a great atmosphere the food was beautifully presented the service very professional. The menu was superb a must try if visiting Ravenna.

I went there for lunch today based on theTA reviews, I was very disappointed. There were 3 tables with customers, 6 customers the most at one point. I ordered the fish tasting menu with 5 courses. It took 2 plus hours for them to bring out all the courses. It took 25 min to start the 1st, 20 min to... More

The restaurant is atmospheric and unusual. The waiting staff were very informative and friendly. We had 2 courses which were delicious and these were augmented by lovely,imaginative nibbles including wonderful desserts. The food is innovative and this was the best meal of our holiday.

We had the fish tasting menu which was superb, and as good as most Michelin starred places I have used. The setting is interesting with some nice touches to give a cinematic theme.

The atmosphere is as sophisticated as an old 40's black and white movie, but at the same time, as inviting, creative and warm as a contemporary New York restaurant. The cuisine, with meat and fish specialities, is characterised by a tradition which has been reinterpreted in an exquisitely creative manner. In addition to the air-conditioned interiors, in summertime one can dine on the outside terrace. The Owner, Sante Milandri has been a restaurant owner since 1982. In 1998 he left "Bistrot Clardge" in Cesenatico (one of the first restaurants on the Riviera to focus on a refined clientele, as well as a younger one) and he moved to Ravenna where he set up the Spasso Bistro. The interior designer and co-owner of the Alexander restaurant carried out the refurbishment work in full respect of the history of the building. The first reports dating back to 1840 when it was used as a residence and later like restaurant. The seating capacity is sixty in what was once the stalls and a further forty seats are available in the circle.
