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!

Good beer, lovely staff and if you get there between 6pm and 9pm a not too shabby free buffet if you spend over €7 each. Not hard if you are drinking pints!! Worth a look.

This cafe/bar is located at a point where a few important busy streets meet but the seating is set back so you are safe and can enjoy people watching while visiting with those at your table, also. We only had an aperitivo but we thoroughly enjoyed this cafe!

My husband and I stopped for small eats and really enjoyed this place. The service was friendly and efficient. We ordered pasta and melanzane parmigiana. Both were ample and tasty.

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.
