Excellent Food - Reasonable Service

I was staying at the Amadeus Hotel for a couple of nights and after arriving on my flight from the US I was not about to go searching for dinner. This restaurant is directly connected to the hotel making my choice easy and am I ever glad I make that choice. A good glass of Chianti and some... read more

The food is very good. Maybe not the cheapest prices for Italy but the quality is good hence nice experience overall. The service is Ok, but can improve. Recommend the sea food dishes

This restaurant adjoins the Amadeus Hotel in Bologna. Quite a unique atmosphere and layout. Service was prompt, efficient and the attendants were very friendly. We probably should have asked for a bit of explanation about the menu but we managed on our own, but don't hesitate to ask as they are happy to answer your questions. If you want a... More

We ate at this ristorante three times in two weeks while staying in Bologna. Try the Rocket or Tortellini. My wife is a picky eater and she loved it. Great staff who remembered us every time!

This was our first time in Italy and we found this place quite by good luck. The atmosphere was lovely, the waiters patient with my awkward Italian, and the food was terrific and a good buy, When you think of Italian restaurants this is the place that is your ideal destination. My only regret is we had to leave for... More

An old-world picturesque establishment with a great menu selection. I am usually skeptical of hotel restaurants (II Pavaglione is right inside of the Amadeus), but our party was rather tired...yet hungry and decided to give it a try. Good portions and menu choices satisfied some of the pickier eaters in the group. One word of advice to new Euro travelers:... More

I came to Italy to see the great atmosphere and the great food. I was very pleased with what we had gone to eat for dinner on the last day of our vacation. We decided to stop here. And it was the absolute best food we've had in a long time. In the US I always loved Italian food. But... More

After nearly anhour we were informedof a further delay of 15 minutes. We were offered a free pizza in the meantime. This arrived together with the manin meal.................... The quality of the...
