Had dinner here with my husband and 2 friends on Saturday night 18th July. We booked a table for 4 a few days in advance, as we knew it would be busy on a Saturday night. We sat in the bar with a bottle of Prosecco first - very nice Prosecco served well chilled - while we looked at the... More

Can't rate this place high enough, we've dined there (lunch) on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The lunch menu isn't extensive but there is something to suit all tastes and the food is good plus the service is courteous and quick. My only criticism is they've never had the calamari dish on the menu for some time and... More

My family and I have been going to the Bologna restaurant for over 15 years, most recently earlier this week. We have never been disappointed with the food, atmosphere, or standard of service. Suitable for any occasion, formal or casual, Marco and his staff manage to strike the right balance every time. A bit of a Bridge of Allan institution!... More

My boss took me out for dinner whilst we were staying at Stirling University. I went on trip advisor and this place had a good record. We were not disappointed. Good quality Italian food, nice selection of wine and good service. I had a lovely starter which was a wide range of Italian cold meat served with some olives etc.... More

The restaurant is situated in lovely grounds and the atmosphere is vibrant. Highly recommend a visit here if you want an authentic Italian dinner. PS - try... More

The group arrived between noon and 1230 and after drinks out on the decking we went in for an excellent meal. The staff looked after us very well and no-one minded that the meal went on into the late afternoon. The weather held out and we were back outside for more drinks before the party finally finished at 7:30. Just... More

We dined here as a family to celebrate a graduation. We were early but that was no problem for the attentive staff. The meal was excellent as was the service. The stroganoff was a favourite!!!

We were looking for a nice outdoor space for a spontaneous tasty lunch. We found just the place. We had the whole outdoor patio space to ourselves as all other customers were sitting inside. The service was traditional, friendly and efficient. The lunch menu was nicely varied to suit all tastes it offered soup & main or starter & main... More
