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!

Stopped here for a drink when passing, comfortable seating, stunning view of the Towers, great for relaxing and people watching!
Standard price for drinks in the city, €5 for wine or €7 for a cocktail, but included a self service buffet if spending €6, which is a nice touch, certainly better than usual bowl of nuts or crisps offered elsewhere

Another apperitivo cafe in Bologna and another good experience and the minimum spend was only 6 euros, pretty impressive for the snacks offered.

The apperitivo included baked potatoes, cheese straws, fruit, sausage and roast potatoes, pizza etc. All very good and kept changing as they restocked. Also included a large basket of crisps.

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.
