This is the sort of restaurant I wish I had on my doorstep. It's obviously popular with the locals and is well worth seeking out. Friendly service and well prepared and tasty food. You can't go wrong.

My husband and I came here on Saturday night and I have to say we had an excellent meal! There's a blackboard of specials on display containing starters, mains and puddings. Plus an extensive menu offering all the usual italian fayre of pastas, pizzas, meat and fish dishes. Lots of choice for everyone. I recommend the bruschetta, great tasting and... More

A group of seven of us visited this restaurant in June 2014 for a graduation celebratory meal. Whilst the menu wasn't very extensive, the food quality was good. The food arrived to the table in good time and the restaurant atmosphere fitted the occasion. I think this location is ideal for group meals due to the vast restaurant space this... More

Our experience was that the staff couldnt have been more helpful, the food was excellent, the venue was great and the evening part of the event, where we were left to our own devises was fantastic. While oraganising the event the owner and staff frequently went above and beyond... More

We ordered food and the waiter got the order wrong then stood and argued with us telling us we had ordered something else, bad attitude, bad waiters and poor food, we will never go back and would advise anyone thinking of going here to go somewhere else

We all wondered how long you would have taken to you to post this review. You came across to us as a spitefull and nasty customer and we had no doubts you were to get your revenge if not your apology. :-)) You were dining as part of a group of 40 people all members of the" Scottish photographers association...

We recently celebrated my wife's 30th birthday here, taking over the whole restaurant on a Saturday night and it was absolutely fantastic. Claudio, Marco, Dan, Caroline and the rest of the team at Bologna went above and beyond to look after our friends and family on the night. We do eat there often due to excellent food, service and authentic... More

I visited the bologna in march for a romantic meal, having read the reviews. It didn't fall short. The staff, atmosphere and food were all exceptional and the wine list had some phenomenal flavours. It's a touch on the expensive side, but we'll definitely be back.

I recently moved to Bridge of Allan and have been coming to the restaurant a number of times. Very friendly staff and good atmosphere. Particularly like the starters, especially the salad.

Just to say that my husband, granddaughter, myself and a trainee assistance pup had a wonderful lunch two weeks ago. The pup was made most welcome and was offered water. The food was exceptionally good and there were clean plates all round! The staff were very helpful and friendly. Definately will be back. Highly recommend it

I went with my Girlfriend, her Sister, and her Sister's partner as a thank you to them. I found this wonderful restaurant when I received an e-mail from one of the well known "Voucher" companies. I purchased the Two course plus coffee deal for four at an amazing saving. The restaurant is not on the main road in Bridge of... More
