In my last stay in Bologna i had the pleasure of stopping by ITIT, a café in style "Starbucks" in the heart of the historic center, it is located in Largo Respighi 2, a small side street of via Zamboni, the university street par excellence in Bologna
This coffee shop is designed just like the classic American cafes, with coffee, tea, herbal teas and chocolates served in cardboard glasses with your name on them; when you order your drink they have your name on the glass, they make you sit down and when your reservation is ready they call you by name .. everything like in classic American cafes! In addition to hot drinks, they serve a wide variety of delicious desserts including muffins, donuts and various types of cakes. In addition, the restaurant has a large display with sandwiches, bottled water and cold drinks and other savory delicacies.
The cafeteria it is open every day from 8:00 to 20:00, it is located in a very welcoming place with numerous tables, chairs and armchairs where you can relax and enjoy your drink or dessert. In addition, the entire restaurant has a free wi-fi service where you can access thanks to the password shown at the bottom of each receipt which, if I'm not mistaken, should always be the same: sandwichcafe.
The only sore point is the price which in my opinion is a bit high because for a cold chocolate with cream and a donut donut I spent 6,50 euros, but I can say that it is worth it as both the desserts and the drinks are really excellent and the atmosphere it is really welcoming and relaxing. It is a place where it is possible to take advantage of the take away service but also the right place to stop and chat with friends or to stop and read, study or work on the PC .. just like at Starbucks. Too bad for the prices because it would be a fantastic place in my opinion.
