Authentic Italian Cooking and Fine Dining

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.

The skilled gastronomist opens oysters directly at the table, showing off his European championship title. 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.

By the way, all tenants of the Residenz am Zwinger Serviced Apartments receive a 15% discount on food and drinks.
