We chose Al Sangiovese as it was just at the end of the road from our hotel and had received good reviews. We were not disappointed! The dark wood interior is atmospeheric. The service was excellent; the waitress was friendly and helpful, and spoke English when our Italian proved inadequate. We were not especially hungry and she was quite happy... More

This for us was the top of our list for repeat business as it had all the right ingredients, not just great food prepared to perfection in a traditional style but the service from the Father Mother and Son was to be remembered as was the wine selection. It was recommended to us by our hotel staff just a few... More

This is our first meal in Bologna so I was careful in choosing where to go. I booked Al Sangiovese months ago - and glad we did. Even though at 7:30pm we were the first diners, the restaurant then slowly filled up, and it was a Monday night! The hostess and host were super welcoming. Really like the atmosphere of... More

We stayed in bologna for 1 night only, and asked our hotel, the San Mamola for their advice and recommendation for restaurants amongst other things. Elisa provided us with 5 recommendations, including al Sangiovese which is on the same street as the hotel. I was a little scpetical at first, however checked Trip Advisor reviews on my smartphone, and quickly... More

So we are a family of 4 (kids 11 and 8yo) and consider ourselves foodies. This restaurant is so good, it has motivated us to write our first ever review - about 10 minutes after we left the restaurant. That's how good it is! The hostess was so sweet and charming and our salad was fresh and colorful. Then came... More

We have been back to Bologna several times, and Al Sangiovese still remains our favorite. We try to dine here at least 2-3 times per trip and it never disappoints! Even more amazing is we always order the exact same dishes each and every time! Wonderful owners, chefs and reasonably priced, but best of all is the food and a... More

We were staying at the next door hotel, Hotel Porta San Mamolo, and they recommended this restaurant. We were initially skeptical since the restaurant was right next to the hotel. But this turned out to be a really great experience. The food was delicious, the service very good and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at this restaurant. It was certainly... More

very accomodating to our party of 10. The host suggests nice wines ( and not the most expensive ones on the list).

Having heard the great reviews about the restaurant prior to our 4 night stay in bologna we decided to go on our last night and what a great decision it was! We were greeted by a very smily happy lady who offered us a table either inside or outside. As we were quite warm we decided to eat inside and... More
