A Few New Restaurants

F.I.S.H in via Maestri: the word is fresh!

TEN in via N Sauri/Borgo San Vitale: the word is continental. Nice menu with some "alternative" choices.

Ristorante Operaviva in strada inzani (oltretorrente): Lots of fish dishes, good reviews. Try their desserts too!

Also, if you don't know about WOPA, you should! A non-profit organization revitalizing our city. Lots of interesting events.
