Peaceful and relaxing dinner after a long week of business

This restaurant exceeded my expectations in so many ways. All week in Bologna, the meals were either catered by the hotel or big noisy events at a downtown osteria.

I was lucky enough to be entertained here for lunch and I was introduced to Sig. Cesare the proprietor. We sat at the table at 12.30 for lunch and left at 5 pm enjoing the company of the man himself. :-)) True Italian style !!!! Antipasti, primi e dolci da paradiso. No room for other food. Incredible selection of wines... More

I had lunch with my family in this restaurant a couple of months ago, but I decided to wait before posting my comments, because I didn't want to seem too enthusiastic. Actually, I do think this is one of the best restaurants I've ever known. Here you would enjoy much more than an excellent meal. If you are Italian, you... More

Here again. I just love the dining experience this restaurant delivers. The food is amazing, the service excellent however unobtrusive. From the outside it looks nothing, but once you step inside the fine dining begins. For a special occasion I would highly recommend.

We went for a very nice romantic dinner. I must say that the tortellini. T-Bone Steak and ice cream were delicious. Service was with a smile. I recommend this place for a special occasion

We went here on a recent trip to Bologna. We were dumped in a basement room, that it soon became clear was reserved primarily for non-Italians......it was windowless and souless. We asked the waiter if we could get a table upstairs, to which we got a rude reply. The waiter had a problem with his personal hygene and this odour... More

This place is a bit out of the centre of bologna, our cab cost us £15 and we were on the left side of the city. Food at this restaurant is excellent…they have local cuisine as well as a season section. I had the rabbit and it was so good. My GF is veg and there were great options for... More
