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.

All but one member of staff were rude and very arrogant. We ate here on two nights, we had grumpy staff on both nights apart from one male mid thirty dark curly hair who was outstandingly good, pizza was ok but wouldn't have one again, sea food good but the let down was the staff

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 is directy in front of the Hotel Amadeus and there is an extrance from the Hotel. It is on the main drag in Borgo Panigale. I have recently reviewed two other restaurants nearby on the same street. This one has fake wooden beams and fake brick and fake everything else, except the food, which is ok, but overpriced....

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
