Really high quality food, good range of options and great service. Is important to make reservation when hotel is busy though - opens at 7:30pm so that is a consideration with young children but as ever in Italy they are well catered for food wise.

We stayed in the Savoia Hotel Regency and so this restaurant was the perfect choice of an evening, being located just across from the entrance to the hotel in the same grounds. The tables are arranged in a seating area with a retractable roof, on the front of the restaurant. The fountains in the centre of the grounds in front... More

Stayed in the Savoia Hotel Regency for three weeks on holiday and had dinner there almost every evening. Staff were friendly and helpful. Menu had a wide variety of regional dishes which were all excellent. Wine list was extensive with several reasonably priced local wines. Overall very good value for money.

Ate here during our final night staying at the Savoia Regency hotel. The choice of food was good. Location excellent, looking out over the fountain in the hotel forecourt. I had the seafood risotto as my primi piatti which was great (although only one prawn served). My friends had the veal risotto which had a very strong flavoured and not... More

The location of this restaurant was convenient, since we were residents at the Savoia Regency, Bologna, however since this restaurant was highly recommended, we made a dinner reservation. We were not disappointed. The setting was beautiful just off a lovely manicured lawn forecourt and fountain. The staff were very attentive and provide courteous service. The various primi & secondi were... More

Starter (rabbit pasta with many twists) was awesome, main course (eel on herbs) was nice but could never hope to match the pleasure the starter gave me. Desert (an unlikely looking Bavarian chocolate pudding) was stellar. The welcome was great, service fabulous, and very reasonably priced for such a quality meal.

I was looking for a nice place before heading to an airport hotel. I came across this restaurant, and lucked into one of the best meals ever. Great service and great food, especially the seafood dishes. I will definitely be back.

Unfortunately, we only went for dessert.. What a wonderful experience! The dolci was a treat from culinary dessert heaven - perfectly marinated pear in red wine, combined with a perfectly baked fondant and vanilla gelato.. What more can one ask for?!!! Not only dies the food sound mouthwatering, but it delivers visually and gustatory wise..
