“Definitely at the top”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

I'm not convinced that among 1200 or so restaurants in culinary rich a distinction can be made between, say, #1 and #2 or #3, but this one certainly deserves to be at the top of the list. Elegant setting, attentive - but not over attentive - service and superb food. There is a fine mix of traditional local specialties (taglietelle, tortelloni, etc) and interesting varieties. The duck breast that I had for secondi was superb. Our table of 10 enjoyed the meal thoroughly - a gastronomic treat in a city that (fortunately) has many places to get a very enjoyable meal. (BTW, many of them are not in such elegant surroundings, but the food experience is very enjoyable none the less.)

“One of the few fancy places to dine in bologna ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

Great classic Italian food with a contemporary twist. Definitely worth checking out the ceiling frescoes. Nice wine selection, and overall a nice romantic atmosphere. We've already been there a few times and it's always great. Plus, it truly is one of the few '' fancy '' places in bologna, along with I portici.

“Beautiful dining room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

Lovely historic dining room. Exceptional attentive staff. We arrived late but that was not treated as a problem. So last in the restaurant. Still presented with a large plate of chocolates etc. We decided to go to sit and have our coffee in the foyer so that the staff could close the restaurant. But still the smiling agreeable service continued. The food was good, small portions of nicely presented and tasty food. Not cheap but worth the cost. A good recommendation for a dinner in Bologna.
