Description: Il Caffè Maxim è un locale accogliente sito al centro di Bologna, proprio vicino alle due torri simbolo della cittadina emiliana. Si tratta di un luogo elegante ma al tempo stesso alla mano e la sua più grande qualità è legata proprio all'ambiente che si viene a creare grazie alla gentilezza,alla simpatia e alla disponibilità di chi ci lavora dalla colazione (tra caffè, cappuccini,brioches e paste varie) al dopo cena e passando per gli aperitivi più che generosi, tutto sempre con un grande sorriso sulle labbra...perché per lo staff del Caffè Maxim lavorare, anche se duramente, per gli abitanti di Bologna o i turisti incuriositi dalle bellezze del "borgo" tipicamente medievale è un vero piacere oltre che un dovere!

We sat here as it was raining still managed to get wet though outside as it poured. The drinks were good and reasonable prices and comfy seats. Unfortunately the food was disappointing as both the pasta and risotto served cold and the spaghetti had hardly any bolognaise sauce. The girls serving were helpful and the prices were reasonable.

The ultimate shabby Italian tourist hot spot experience: acceptable, listless food at barely acceptable prices, shamelessly wasting a gorgeous location under the arcade with a perfect view of the Due Torri.

Again, prices and food are more acceptable than many get away with at similar locations, and if you know Italy you fully expect worse.

The one thing that broke it for me was table cleaning: in an otherwise acceptable service, the greasy cloth sweep that moved things around our table managed to get even cigarette ash back on it, only sticking.

It's good to drop in and have some coffee with croissant here. It's just a few steps from the Due Torri. And there's free wifi as well.

Whenever we visit Bologna, this seems to be the place we end up stopping off for a quick coffee or spritz most days. The location is good, with nice close-up views of the due Torri, and it's especially convenient if you're staying in the south-west of the city. Drinks are fine and reasonably priced, and it's rarely too full or awkwardly empty. We've never eaten there, as there are so many other good food places nearby, but if you're wandering around the city centre and just fancy a quick drink of some sort, then it's a good choice.

A good location right by the towers although not especially quiet on the night we were there with road renovations going on past aperitivo time. Most simple drinks seem to be around the 5 Euro mark although you can 'upgrade' to include some unappetising looking snacks for a small increment. We didn't bother. There are better places nearby.
