Diners Club: Casa Merlò POSTPONED

15/10/2020 @ 20:30 23:30

In light of the very recent developments with the ongoing pandemic, I think it’s best to postpone the dinner.

I foresee organizing future events in different forms that would allow us to enjoy ourselves, while still being cautious and adhering to best practices.

With that in mind, I will keep the November date with flexibility, in anticipation.

In the interim, if you would like to share your favorite place you like to dine, take guests and/or seasonal food events that you really enjoy  — in Bologna and beyond —  the ‘In the Kitchen and Eating Out’ Social Board is a great place where we can share our wealth of knowledge.

Until then – eat well and be well.



Hello Ladies,

Ready to reconvene?

I think perhaps the atmosphere has settled enough for us to safely enjoy a dinner indoors together as the weather turns colder.

For our first outing of the autumn season I’d like to invite you to Casa Merlò, a new and informally innovative restaurant in the city centre. Opened in August 2019, Dario Picchiotti and Francesco Tonelli have created a menu that honors tradition with a bit of fresh air. From Bolognese favourites to daily fresh fish and on to a few surprises from farther flung; each dish is well presented, service is knowledgeable and the wine list – cosmopolitan. What more could one ask for?

Reservations are for October 15th at 20.30.

You may reserve your place at the table by leaving a comment below by the 14th.

As always, all IWF members are welcome.

I look forward to seeing you!

My best, Stephanie

“There is a difference between dining and eating. Dining is an art. When you eat to get most out of your meal, to please the palate, just as well as to satiate the appetite, that, my friend, is dining.” ― Yuan Mei
