Overrated and overpriced for what it is.

We made the mistake of visiting this restaurant on Saturday after reading a review in a guide book (we didn't look on here...foolish us). First impressions are that it is much too bright inside, not a place you would want to linger over a meal, if given the chance that is. Ok, the food. I had Patè... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us by our taxi driver, he said it was really a locals place. And it was! With the waiters all dressed in their white jackets, and so many to take care of you, I loved it. If you want a old traditional delicious restaurant this is it. From antipasto to dolci it was spectacular! We... More

This restaurant is over priced and the food is less than mediocre. If you are looking for traditional good tasting Italian cuisine, this is not the place to go. The food was tasteless. Felt like it was cooked and reheated when served. Don't advise to eat here.

Went there for lunch on Christmas Day. A cover charge of €6 each! Waiter not friendly at all with little help with the menu (we are American Chinese). Food was just ok, and the main course which included different meats was tasteless. Worst of all, all other tables got panettone after the meal and a gift.... Is this called good... More

Old school restaurant with table side service. Food was very good. Not an English speaking friendly place but truly authentic.

Visited Diana on Sunday evening. Food was ok but overpriced compared to other restaurants in Bologna. Most of the dishes were plated in the too bright dining room by the wait staff. Service could have been friendlier and more attentive. We felt this restaurant is a tourist trap.

Decor and lighting are inviting for a lot of people, but the restaurant was only average in quality and taste. Service was good. The place was packed in the evening so we took a table outside. Overall, skip this if you can.

Friends recommended this place but I was expecting much more. Service was ok, but food did not have that something that will make you want more.

Lamb chops overcooked, tough, inedible. Waiter borderline rude. Locals are eating here but I can't imagine why! There are so many other restaurants, very good, in the center, historical part of the city. And thank goodness! Do not go here.

This restaurant is highly over rated. Of the eight restaurants we have had either lunch or dinner this past week this is the worst. You can get a better meal by just walking down virtually any street in Bologna.
