“Welcome Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

We arrived here wet and cold after arriving at our hotel Grand Elite down the road to find the restuarant was closed because it's Sunday we were told - I understand restaurants closing but not in a hotel. Welcome was great lady gave us a Proseco whilst we waited a short while for our table. Food superb and service was great. We both had the assorted Adriatic Fish which was cooked on a wood fire - prawns, scallops, salmon fillet, squid and shrimp which cost 20 euros. complimentary liquor at the end of the meal and delicious focaccia to nibble on whilst waiting for the main course

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

The food is excellent, and good value. The location isn't really attractive, though.

“Ok food, slow service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

We were 80 persons for lunch here. The food was good, but the service were very slow. We got some salad and meat for start, some pasta as starter and some grilled meat with sundried tomatoes, artichocs, mushroom and peppers. Cafe was also served. But we had to wait for a long time.

“great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Very nice food, good service from friendly helpful staff. It was really nice to be able to sit outside in the attractive seating area at the back. The complimentary liqueur was a welcome touch to end the meal.

“What a find !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2011

We recently ate at Gigi, we 1st went for lunch, (we we are staying at Suite Hotel Elite 400 mts away, stay there it's also fantastic, marvellous value) as it was the 1st restaurant on route into town. We sat outsde in rear courtyard and enjoyed a splendid lunch. It was so good we went back for evening dinner. We were in Bologna for 4 nights and I know it might sound boring but Gigi was such fun and the food was delicious we ate there each evening, it just got better with each visit.. The menu had such a variety that we only chose repeat choices because it was so good. Barbara speaks good English as do some of the excellent staff. If you have any interest in Italian wine ask Barbara's advice as their list is bewildering. If you wish to slow the meal down a touch then request a "calm" meal. They also do superb Pizzas and a take out selection. The free Grappa as a digestive is a lovely touch. If you are staying at Suite Hotel Elite you'll have 10% discount on food and wine, if not the number 13 bus stops almost outside Gigi.
