We made the mistake of ordering a ‘tagliere’, which is a platter of cold meats and cheeses. The ‘mistake’ part being that we ordered a large platter when a small one would have sufficed. We were presented with a lazy-susan sized plate of meats, which I suspect would have adequately fed a group of six or more. Representing the dairy corner was a small Jenga-tower of cheese, which looked like an afterthought rather than a legitimate part of the tagliere. Not realising how vast the tagliere would be, we had also ordered some Baccala Mantecato (salt cod spread) and some sardines. The second time we went I made sure that we ordered a plate of fresh grilled vegetables to combat the first night meat overdose. All the food at Bifora was substantial and delicious but I particularly enjoyed the seafood. There is always something quite satisfying about eating food that’s been caught locally.

Nice location. After recommendation for other reviewers to go for the meat and cheese share board we went ahead. What came out was a disappointment. Not fresh bread, only cheddar cheese and tons of meat. GooglePlace - September 2017
