This restaurant was very close to our hotel and was recommended by them. We were not disappointed as all the food and wine was of very high quality and of generous portions. The staff were very pleasant too and I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Over the past 7 years, my family and I have enjoyed the pleasure of dining at Al Sangiovese no fewer than a dozen evenings. Without fail they have welcomed us as part of their family, served spectacular Bolognese food, and poured delicious Sangiovese wine. There's nothing on their menu we've not enjoyed - everything from risotto al Sangiovese, tagliatelle al... More

Very good food and nice atmosphere, but we did see a comment about being shortened in bill change. Husband and wife team, but watch wife; very nice manner, but she's expert in taking check and thanking you, assuming there is no change, then, stops looking your way so you have to ask for the change, or you'll never get it....

We had dinner here the first night we were in Bologna and were not disappointed. It is a small restaurant, very popular with locals and tourists. A reservation is a must.The food was very good, reasonably priced. The staff were helpful in explaining the food and wine.

This was a perfect choice for our first evening in Bologna , close to our hotel it was very conveniently situated. We were a group of 8 ,and although we had a couple of Italian speakers the friendly helpful staff switched between English and Italian when items on the menu required clarification. As has been said by other reviewers the... More

Nice start for a weekend in Bologna. The first time I tasted "tortellini in brodo". Great service. I made one big mistake, tried to eat too much (antipasto, primo, secndo and dolce), could not finish them all. I really liked the atmosphere and it would be nice to visit this restaurant again sometime in the future. I recommend a reservation.... More

My reservation, made by the hotel, wasn't on their books but they gave me a table anyway and provided excellent service and very good food. The food--perhaps my selections, green lasagna with Bolognese sauce and scaloppini with asparagus were to blame--was very good but not amazing.
