Francesco Toro - owner of THE BOLLICINE restaurant

We are delighted to have Francesco Toro as a partner for the former club restaurant of Gerd Kastenmeier, located on the 5th floor of the Residenz am Zwinger. Now, everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the unique view of the old town of Dresden.

The Sicilian-born gastronomist is passionate about his craft and was even once the European champion in oyster opening! A weekly changing menu is mandatory for him, so guests can look forward to culinary variety.

Every guest who dines with him at least 3 times will even receive their own personalized steak knife. The skilled gastronomist opens oysters directly at the table, showing off his European championship title.

The restaurant is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 11:30am to 2:00pm and from 6:00pm to 10:00pm. During the week, there is a business lunch for €26.50, which should be especially pleasing to working gourmands. Those who feel like a snack or a glass of wine after visiting the Semper Opera House are also very welcome.

For those who may wonder what “BOLLICINE” actually means, Mr. Toro explains that it is the term used in Italy for the bubbles in champagne, prosecco or sparkling wine.
