Prepare to have your mind blown. I had a 9-course tasting menu with a wine flight to accompany. The food is incredibly imaginative and, of course, delicious. The service is likewise outstanding. Really one of the best, immersive, impressive, and personalized culinary experiences I have ever had. Thats where those Michelin stars come from.

Sunday lunch with my fiancée: Cesenatico during the winter, in a rainy day, is a strange interesting trip. Magnolia restaurant is a lovely place, modern design with a deep love and research on raw material. We took the "Magnolia tasting menu", with some excellent dishes: starters, the lovely Piadina with raw prawn and sea urchin, the amazing Oyster with ginger... More

Visited the restaurant without having made any reservation. It was late in the evening, but we really wanted to eat there, because of their good reviews. The restaurant was beautiful and really nice with the subdued lighting. The chef made 7 course menu for us and i must say, that it was the best I have ever tasted. Both waiters... More

The dishes are very creative and the food tastes so delicious (of course) ! The wine list is big enough. We tried a very good Italian white wine. The staff was decreet and competent. The prices are in line with the quality of the food, service and standing of the restaurant. With our Hôtel, we had a 10% discount on... More

The service and atmosphere first of all was impeccable and super cool. From the waitstaff attire to the stylish style of the restaraunt....to the presentation of the food: it was all so perfecto! Now to the food.... The taste and blends of each dish were outstanding. The veal and fish dishes were perfectly cooked. The octopus was particularly amazing. Bravissimo!!!!

A few days ago, I had dinner at Magnolia... it wasn't the first time, it won't be the last one! As always I had the Magnolia Menu, I never order à la carte, but rather prefer the menu with many different dishes to taste. As always everything was excellent, from the appetizers (what to say about the beetroot chips with... More

Creativity, best quality ingredients, very good wine list, kind and very accurate service, a lot of attention for details make this high class restaurant a must if you are in the area (is certainly worth of a couple of hours drive!). The dining room has a very nice atmosphere, thanks to the stylish, minimal furniture and tableware, and is certainly... More

Excellent restaurant, located in an area a little defilated from the center. Fish with creative insights from one of the youngest chefs and innovative of the Coast. I appreciate a good lobster prepared with fruit and vegetables and an excellent trio of homemade desserts. It costs around 60 euros per person. Service friendly and professional. Elegant and beautiful summer garden.... More
