Took advantage of a groupon deal and enjoyed a nice lunch. Polite professional staff. Good food and great value for money. They do a similar lunch deal without the groupon voucher if you prefer. Will be back!!

From the moment we were welcomed into the restaurant by Jan to the end of our relaxed meal we were made to feel special. The restaurant is beautifully decorated, very accessible, beautiful surroundings. Attention to detail was obvious, each table had fresh red roses, all staff were very pleasant and attentive, We were served by Caroline who was very friendly,... More

The food at the Bologna is always a good standard, but on this occasion we found the service pretty basic and sadly since moving from its original venue to mine road we've found on every occasion that the atmosphere just is not the same. The waiter clearly didn't want to be there and was doing the absolute minimum he could.... More

Dear Julia thank you for your comment. It was with disappointment I read it because once again it proves the point of how difficult if not impossible it is to keep every customer happy. As you reminded it is now 8 years since we relocated from our old address. I would agree with you the ambient in Henderson st. had... More

We have enjoyed a couple of wonderful family nights out at Vecchia Bologna. All our meals have been delicious and great value for money, the food is always fresh, high quality and well presented. The service is excellent, staff professional, helpful and friendly and the kids are always made to feel welcome. I would highly recommend this Italian restaurant!

Some people mentioned this place to us a while back. They said the food was good but service was slow so I bought a Groupon deal to try it. It was almost empty at lunch time so we got our food quickly. The deco is a bit old fashion for me & the food was okay. It was a great... More

Reviewer thanks for your short but confusing review. I say confusing as it's left me bewildered as to whether or not I am likely to see you again. I wish to address the first point you made. You wrote "They said the food was good but service was slow". I don't understand why you need to be quoting what someone... More

Great food, friendly and helpful staff, set in a fantastic location. Always serve fresh food, brilliantly cooked at competitive prices. Although situated in "upper BofA", there is nothing pretentious about the place and the staff will cater for anyone that's picky or who have dietary requirements, with no fuss at all. My other half is a veggie and always has... More

Came here on 26th dec for a big family meal and the food was delicious. Service was good and the food was served so fast! It was like as soon as we ordered our food was in front of us and as someone who is really impatient I loved that!

This place is a gem. We've been dining here for a few years now; mostly lunch times with the children, but also the occasional evening meal when we've had chance to dine out as a couple. It's also the first place we'd take visiting friends as the food and service is consistently excellent and we're always made to feel welcome.... More
