Description: Located in the heart of Forli close to the theatre and San Domenico Museums, DON ABBONDIO OSTERIA is a centenarian institution where theatre workers and actors used to have a meal at late night. Today the tavern belongs to the young host Simone, who is a sommelier and has a very particular passion on cheese too. The family took great care over the previous tavern style, but in a modern and stylish way. So that youʼll find paper placemats on the table, some of the traditional recipes on the list belonged to the inn history, such as “stracotto beef”, fried frogs, meatballs and tripe, but also a great selection of wine and contemporary paintings on the walls, made by the artist Enrico Lombardi. And for true lovers, a little cameo: a candle-lit dinner in the only one table under the roof.

Excellent restaurant where recipes from the vast and opulent tradition of the Romagna Region are creatively proposed at reasonable price. I have been there recently for no less than three times in a week so we had the chance to sample several items from the menu, which while definitely not outstanding in terms of offers, allows for a reasonable variety of dishes. Additionally there are daily offers off the menu. The selection of wines is more than ok and so the offer of cheeses. The handmade cappelletti in brodo di cappone were almost perfect (too much lemon) and so were the strozzapreti. Honorable mention to all the meat from the tagliata to the trippa (tripe). I won't go above the 3 stars because of the extremely small portions, and that's a crime in Romagna. Attitude of the staff could sometimes be perceived as grumpiness.

Everything was right. The red wine was a Barbaresco, a genre hitherto unknown to me. It was delicious as was the Trippa alla Romagna - all regions of North and Central Italy have their own way with ox tripe. Service was welcoming and friendly.

Coming over year in a foggy evening of winter is definitely preparing you fro the nice experience I had. I had very nice food with single glass of wine selected by the younger apprentice having passion for wines of the territory, is asking where I am coming from and he makes sure I taste different local one I have never had before. Starter ok first dish pasta hand made with faro and cannochie is fresh like you would expect and second trippa absolutely great. Nice atmosphere for place I will re visit to experience other plates and new wines. Keep the good work going !

Very limited menù. Quality of food not high. Despite The appearance of the restaurant, that raises expectations, the overall level is disappointing . The choice is simply too limited. Quantity of food that was served to us was insufficient. The best I could get was some salami and cheese and a small tagliata di manzo.
