We went here the other day on our visit to bologna. Although the service was good the food was absolutely disgusting. My food tasted like it had been soaked in sewage water whilst my husbands was way too salty. Not a pleasant meal at all. Very disappointed.

Had lunch here on Tuesday. Visited here four years ago for dinner and found it to be a perfect experience for first-class Bolognese food in a formal, yet relaxing environment. This time we sat outside on a warm but pleasant day and enjoyed a leisurely lunch. We started with spuma di mortadella on warm crostini -- yes, it was a... More

top quality grub, quite pricey but in a great location. You don't get an itemised bill and might find it adds to a little more than you were expecting....

Don't expect a smile. Seat yourself and grab your own menus. You may need to look around for a while a flag down a waiter until one of the many standing around come to serve you. ( we got the vibe it was because we were the only tourists) The lasagne was average. The risotto was good. It would have... More

We had read a lot about dining in Bologna, and Diana continued to pop up in recommendations from various sources. We had a very wonderful lunch there. The white coat waiters provide exceptional service. The food was top notch-the specials of the day were the way to go. My husband had a veal dish that was a highlight of his... More

Always perfect, from 'il carrello di bolliti' to the arrosti, very tastefull. But, if you are that lucky to be in Emilia Romagna in september you will probably be eager to taste (and smell) the freshly harvested 'tartufo': OK, you order a tagliatelle, tagliolini or capelli d'angelo (all 'al uova') with tartufo. OK, you trip is already paid. Fantastic (still... More

Diana is a fixture in Bologna with handmade pastas, succulent meats and the MOST gracious and respectful of waiters. We have been to Bologna many times, and are never disappointed when dining here. Torteloni en Brodo, the local specialty, couldn't be better. Highly recommended.

Food and service were good. Nice terrace outside. Reccomendation is to taste traditional local dishes from menu.

We had our first meal here as it was highly recommended. The waiter was not so welcoming. Started with Pate Olive and Fig which were very good. We had tagliatelle con il ragu alla bolognesse and Rognoncino alla Diana. The tagliatelle was rather bland but the rononcino was perfect. A rather good lunch except for the service where the waiter... More

Had dinner here last night. The waiter we had was pleasant and funny but every course was served too quickly as if they were in a hurry to serve you and get home! We both had tortellini in broth. They were trying too hard to sell ice cream and chocolate sauce for dessert which seemed due to the fact the... More
