Don’t worry, we’re here to tell you about 3 excellent restaurants where you can vent your carnivorous side without risking disappointment.

Our 3 favorite places that serve grilled meat in Rimini

Osteria Io e Simone

Quality and friendliness in the heart of Rimini, a stone’s throw from the Malatesta Temple. Simone and Giacomo manage the restaurant with passion and professionalism. They offer a varied menu but linked to the home tradition with fresh homemade pasta. In fact, for example, tagliatelle with meat sauce or cappellacci stuffed with squacquerone are among the house specialties. But it is undoubtedly the grill that deserves an honorable mention, because here the watchwords are ‘research and quality’: in fact, they offer aged Chianina, Black Angus and Fassona Piemontese meats as well as refined specialties such as Finnish Shiroi Beef or the Spanish Rubia Gallega, which cost a little more than the average but which are absolutely worth trying. A rich wine cellar with over 160 labels completes the offer. The restaurant has an internal room and an outdoor terrace for summer dinners. We recommend you absolutely try the Mangalica ham platter, the Hungarian pork-sheep, similar to Pata Negra.

Osteria Tiresia

A few steps from the Arch of Augustus, in the historic center (Borgo San Giovanni), is the Osteria Tiresia, a tavern that for several years has distinguished itself for the quality of its proposals. The menu is made of traditional Romagna dishes, with the genuine and typical aromas and flavors of the past, with strictly homemade pasta and desserts. It offers selected local wines and inside there is a real butcher’s counter, full of carefully selected meats (Chianina, Romagna, and Marche), destined for the adjacent grill fire. Cut, ribs, chops, and a Tuscan wink with its Florentine cut at the moment. Local: Rustic style interiors, during the summer Osteria Tiresia extends into the garden of its internal courtyard.

L’Ingrata offers Romagna-style cuisine revisited in a modern key, without avoiding some excellent ethnic influences. Excellent proposals for appetizers and first courses, even if the strong point is the grilled meat: Fiorentine, Costate, Spiedoni, Asado, Stinchi, Tartare and Carpaccios, all meats reared in Romagna and slaughtered with the Temple Grandin method. To try: The Scottona Romagnola with a minimum maturation of 45 days, or the “Gran Tagliere Ingrata” for a rich-tasting of the best meats on the menu.

Price range: €€ – €€€
