Just had the best lasagne in the world at the brilliant Alcatraz Caffè in Bournemouth. Great Italian Music and excellent service from the staff. This is now Lucky Lee's Best Lasagne In The World.A short walk from the seafront was well worth it.

Visited while in Bournemouth. This is the second time I have visited this restaurant. Food is always good quality. Reasonably priced for an Italian. Particularly in Bournemouth. Staff are friendly and attentive.

Traditional Italian cooking with modern inspiration set in an ambient and relaxing atmosphere. An Alcatraz Brasserie is the ideal place for a quick lunch, a business meeting, a night out or even just for one of our fantastic coffees. Alcatraz specialises in home-made pastas, pizza and specialty dishes prepared daily with the freshest and finest ingredients. It's no wonder that Alcatraz Brasseries continue to be one of the best in the business.
