Went to this restaurant on recommendation from hotel staff & while the food was very good, we didn't walk away saying 'this was great or the ragu was the best' or anything like that. In reading other reviews I've come to the conclusion that the ambiance, or really the lack of, was part of the reason. The restaurant has a... More

This was our most expensive restaurant on our italian holiday but worth it. Bolognese food with a modern twist. Very good service. Relaxed atmosphere. Food was excellent. Very knowledgeable staff. All courses and wine were superb. In a city of excellent food this was special. Not far from our hotel

This is my pick of the restaurants in Bologna. It serves classical italian dishes with a modern twist using only seasonal local produce. The guinea fowl lasagna was a case in point, perfectly seasoned guinea fowl in between light and soft multi layers of pasta topped with a light and creamy béchamel sauce. The wine list was well rounded and... More

This is a modern restaurant with great food and service. The menu is small but the food quality is great. It is in a little side street behind the Piazza Maggiore off Via d' Azegiio and is modern internally with English speaking waiters. We shared a mixed meat platter and then had guinea fowl and pork ribs. The wine selection... More

Modern place within the real center, with traditional food. Beef tartare is superior, as well as the artisan beer served. Overall, nice place, a bot overpriced given the little short menù list.

The Mrs and I went to this restaurant on the Saturday night of a recent weekend city break to Bologna. It's a nice spot, tucked away in a side street off one of the main shopping streets (check a map before you go, as it's easy to miss the side street). The restaurant was full of locals when we went... More

We loved the food - the guinea fowl lasagna was the winner by a mile. The wine was overpriced and somehow it lacked a bit of ambience. We have much more memorable experiences elsewhere in Bologna.

Nice little place in the town center. Good pasta and an incredible filetto di Manzo gratinato al pesto bolognese. Outstanding! Service was first rate. Will be back again!

We made reservations in advance and arrived on time for our 20.30 reservation. Promptly greeted and offered a number of choice tables. We choose for a table in the middle of the second room. It was half full when we arrived but never 100% full during our visit. Menus were offered in Italian and English. Water is served either still... More

We had such a fantastic evening here. The waiter was superb - warm, interested, attentive, and he clearly loves the food and drink of the region. We had a plate of delicious and varied antipasti meats followed by a pasta dish each. Everything was excellent. At the end of the meal we didn't have room for the desserts but the... More
