Dined at Bresca based on TA reviews and proximity to our apartment. Our party had slightly mixed opinions, with some really enjoying it and others thinking the food and portions were just average. The prices were good though, especially considering how much more the tourist...More

My fiancé and I had a wonderful dinner here. We split the burrata and meat board. The mortadella was AMAZING. Unfortunately, the meat and cheese is served with a disappointing bread called a ‘tigella’ - like an english McMuffin top...its too thick and chewy and...More

Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and

Description
Bresca is the easiest, cheapest, funniest way to enjoy best of Bologna's gastronomy in the very centre of Madrid. In Bresca you'll immerse in a full Italian environment where you'll be able to discover and taste the famous and traditional Tigelle —Bresca's start dish—: 10-centimetres diameter round breads made with wheat flour and beer yeast , filled with Bologna's finest products: smoked prosciutto, truffle mortadella, Grana Padano Cheese, Strachinno... If you're still hungry after, you can complete your meal with tasty lasagna dishes, made following the original Italian recipes that will carry you to Bologna's heart. Finally, you can accompany your meal with Bresca's artisanal beer or a glass of Lambrusco or Pignoletto. Buon Apettito!
