Beautiful italian food

We enjoyed a really good meal here of good italian food. The room is lovely and the waiters attentive and formal, it has a charm all of its own. I had the fish fritto misto which was delicious, the waiter obligingly pointing out when I ordered that it contained vegetables as well. I wasn't... read more

What a spectacular lunch! While on the spendy side, the meal was superb, the wait staff in the white jackets were full of old-world class, and the atmosphere was authentic and full of discerning local clientele. There were numerous lunch business meals as well as couples here. Everything was just "right." The tortellini with butter and sage was magical -... More

Sat and waited and waited....to order, to receive food, to get bill. Not very attentive at all. Food good but overpriced.

I'm a little confused, because the client mentioned in the previous review (Alexandre) came in the same day, says the exact opposite. Best regards More

We wanted to have a casual dinner in our first night in Bologna, and this place had been recommended by an Italian friend. While we requested a reservation via email, and got a "we'll be right back to you" response, we never got a response and just showed up at 8 on a Saturday, which seems early, and had no... More

This restaurant has a reputation for having some of the best tortellini in Bologna, and it did not disappoint. The tortellini themselves were excellent, and appetizers and second courses were also superb. The artichoke dishes as appetizers were especially good. Prices were also reasonable, and wines by the glass were thoughtfully selected. Excellent overall attention to detail. Other reviewers complained... More

Food and service was wonderful. I would definitely return. My only complaint (and this applies to most Italian restaurants) is the ambiance is lacking...florescent lighting, bad art work, inexpensive and unattractive furnishings. Overlook these things and you'll have a wonderful meal. P.S. Have Italians heard of candles?

Great location but the food was average and the wine overpriced. The service was good but I wouldn't be rushing back too soon.
