If you wish a nice change from eating alla bolognese i strongly suggest Pars! In a quiet area out of the old city center but easily accessible on foot you get to a lovely restaurant which gives you a good idea about the food and the persian culture! The family of the owners makes you feel very welcome from the... More

... yes, it was an extremely pleasant experience to have lunch here on a grey sunday. I felt as I had been transported magically to Teheran, at least the city I know from the many Iranian films that I have seen and loved. My husband and our friends were all very happy with the meal. I did not love my... More

Being Persian myself, I was shocked and amazed to find an Iranian restaurant in Bologna?! However, I was beyond impressed! Living in Europe, it's not always easy to find good Persian restaurants but Pars definitely met and exceeded my expectations! They have a full menu offering the best Persian dishes. Also, the owners are truly kind and hospitable. Thank you!

We ordered a diverse mixture of food, including chicken and lamb and beef kabobs. Quality was high. Restaurant is a little outside city center ($10 euro can ride) but it was well worth the trip. Highly recommended, especially after a week of Italian food this was a great meal!

I've eaten at some excellent Persian restaurants both in the US and in the Gulf (especially Kuwait and UAE). So when a friend who lived in Bologna for two years told me it was his favorite restaurant there we had to try it. The combination appetizer was very good (the dolmeh and eggplant were among the very best I've ever... More

We were so looking forward to this after reading hundreds of 4/5 star reviews. Expectations were high and to be honest on the whole we were rather underwhelmed. The service was good, the decor pleasant and the pistachio icecream flavored with rose water was delicious. They are also good with kids here and our girls - who are very picky... More
