Enjoy the typical dishes of Emilia Romagna while you admire the display of trophies (helmets, overalls and parts of vehicles) that tell the illustrious story of Formula 1. This was Michael Schumacher's favorite place to eat when he drove for Ferrari and it's not unusual to find one of the current members of the 'Ferrari stable' seated next to you during your meal!

Gilli 1733
Cafe/Sandwich Bar

Even if you sit outside, don't miss the main counter with its Neoclassical bronze decorations; it was built in the famous Coppede' workshop and is an outstanding piece of craftsmenship.
