Having read the comments online we decided to try this restaurant, it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, especially the meat lasagna. The service was superb, especially Natasha, she was very helpful at explaining the menu to us.

I came to Bresca for a drink and some small food and overall I was impressed. Drinks and food were a good price and the bread basket we had with cheese was very enjoyable. Not a must visit but a solid choice if nearby.

Found this resteraunt on TripAdvisor with some mixed reviews. Thought we would check it out anyway. The truffle with mushroom pasta was amazing. The service was great and at a pretty decent price compared to most restaurants in Madrid. Would eat there again!

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!
