Known throughout Europe as a capitol of culture and fine living, the wealth of good taste from Italy’s Bologna region now makes its home on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach – at Il Bolognese.
Inspired by the authentic recipes and fresh regional ingredients of Northern Italy, this exceptional Italian eatery offers contemporary interpretations of classic favorites by Executive Chef Manuel Mattei.
Everything we do at Il Bolognese is focused around creating a hearty, European sense of welcome. From our delectable lunch and dinner selections to our playful list of hand-crafted cocktails to our extensive regional wine list to our intimate garden courtyard for private events, we invite you to savor our unique culinary experience for yourself.
Our approach is simple: only the best ingredients and only the best preparations. So while many find our menu filled with “comfort foods,” it is our dedication to environmentally friendly and socially responsible farm-to-table dining that should set diners most at ease. We source all our ingredients from organic and/or local vendors – including Harris Ranch meats, Seafoods.com fish selections, and Mr. Greens Produce.
