The Best Bars In Ravenna, Italy

Luca Pinelli

Ravenna, Italy is a great destination for food-lovers and culture vultures. With great Byzantine mosaics and plenty of churches to admire, it is a good choice to visit. Here are out picks of great bars in Ravenna to enjoy an evening drink at.

Piazza del Popolo

1. Grand Italia

Bar, Restaurant, Italian

Immersed in the historic center of Ravenna and situated on piazza del Popolo, Grand Italia is one of those bars and restaurants into which tourists generally do not venture because of their extravagancy. Nonetheless, Grand Italia, despite not being one of the cheapest bars and restaurants in Ravenna, offers a great buffet. It also has a plethora of drinks and strong Italian coffee.

2. Cabria Wine Bar

Bar, Wine Bar, Wine

An historic wine bar in Ravenna, Cabiria offers exceptional drinks and a great atmosphere to anyone looking for a special corner tucked away from the city. If drinking sharpens the appetite, fear not: there is a wide and diverse menu catering to different palates too.

3. Alex & Paul

Bar, Pub Grub

Located in the heart of the city center, Alex & Paul is a famed stopover for drinks. It offers great tastings of sharing platters accompanied by a glass of wine – or even a whole bottle. Or, indulge in a glass of champagne. This is something that many wine bars do not offer because of Italy’s (especially Lombardy’s) preference for home-grown bubbly.

4. Fargo


With an original decor, Fargo Café is one of those places where one drink always leads to another. There is a small buffet on offer to all those who order drinks. It is possible to opt for a table outside in order to get a breath of fresh air between one sip and the next. The menu offers craft beers and good-quality wines alongside quick bites and some other dishes for the hungry.

This place provides dishes that cater to children and adults alike. There is a selection of their own craft beers, all created with the same theme in mind: Diabolik, an Italian comic book.
