Digest this mini-review in 60 seconds
Situated within the Rufus Court area, Bollicini enjoys proximity to Chester Cathedral, the town hall and good high street shops. Bollicini is therefore ideal for both casual lunches and night-time dining.
Bollicini offers a good À La Carte menu, but when you choose the ‘Tuscan Tuesdays’ menu (on a Tuesday!) it’s astounding value. With this, you can have two courses and a bottle of Merlot for only £14.95 per person and add £4.50 for a dessert or £5 to upgrade the Merlot to Chianti, an upgrade we chose. Starters on this deal include Italian classics such as spare ribs in barbecue sauce – or Costolette Alla Toscana – and bruschetta with parma ham and mozzarella – Bruschetta Toscana. With a range of grilled meats, pasta dishes, risottos and pizzas to choose from, our selections for mains consisted of spaghetti with calamari, prawns and mussels, and parma ham, mozzarella and cherry tomato calzone. We were too full to choose any of the tempting desserts.
Décor and ambience
This is a busy place and the noise creates a lively ambience.
We did wait a little while for our starters, but otherwise the staff were very efficient and friendly too.
