Not so family friendly!

We visited at the weekend with the family to celebrate my daughters birthday and to be honest it felt as if we were just in the way. I didn't see any of the staff smile, and felt that there was an atmosphere between them. The food was pretty good as usual but unfortunately we didn't have a great... read more

Dear Mary thank you for the comment and thank you for the good food reference you scored. We remember your party on Saturday night. You brought in a birthday cake that was served at your table. Unfortunatly our waiters do not like to sing birthday songs, we have never done so in 20 years.. We are happy when the birthday... More

We've been a number of times - a due and en famille - and always enjoyed it. Food is delicious and reasonably priced, as are drinks. The salads are enormous - genuine main course salads. And service is excellent. Great service and lovely setting - only 'trouble' is it can sometimes be so sunny with its big windows. Kids love... More

All freshly cooked and delicious joints of meat ( usually beef, ham, lamb & pork ) carved to your request and accompanied by all the usual trimmings, Yorkshire puddings, pigs in blankets and the most delicious gravy before moving down the spread to select superb vegetables ranging from cauliflower...

Went on whim for Monday evening dinner, couple with teenage son. Service was quick, food very good, two pizzas and pasta dish, all enjoyed. Orio cookie desert was bought in, and thanks to waiter for pointing out this, we still ordered but really appreciated the honesty, had tiramisu and steamed sponge, both excellent. Male waiter had a very efficient persona,... More

20 walkers from our Saturday group enjoyed a delicious lunch in this lovely setting. Quality food very nicely cooked and presented and a dish to suit everyone. We all enjoyed the event and would definitely recommend for lunch and a location for a romantic dinner. Nice bar area for a drink before the meal or just call in for a... More

Ladies Christmas lunch for 20 guests. Starter, very nice indeed (Smoked salmon with prawns). Main course - lots of Sea Bass requests. All recipients rather surprised to find it served with sprouts and carrots! It seemed to give the message ' you will have christmas dinner whether you like it or not!' It made us laugh. Service was good, food... More

This restaurant has a good range of Italian and other food, perfectly cooked. This restaurant provides quality with moderate portion sizes. Located in a village with many restaurants and great competition between them, Bologna manages to retain many local regulars who appreciate the quality, value, and friendly atmosphere.
