One of our favorite restaurants in the world. Spectacular service, setting, food. The Murano-glass light features are unique. The home-made pasta is like nowhere else. Their special golden tortellini and their pasta with Parmesan and black truffle, delicious; the latter coming to the table in a giant Parmesan wheel, then scooped out at the table. Wine list is spectacular. Family-run... More

Worth the short taxi ride from Centro...extensive menu, typical Bolognese, as well as creative dishes with focus on tradition. Service is excellent, multi-lingual, and great knowledge of the menu and food preparation. Wine pairing was perfect, and while very efficient service, we weren't rushed out, and we quietly enjoyed moscato. We left feeling full, but not uncomfortable, will definitely try... More

Like the previous reviewers mentioned, the food was fabulous. I had delicious gluten free pasta. The waiter was very helpful and attentive. The atmosphere was a bit more formal than other restaurants that I visited in Bologna: the waiters were in tuxes,and the other patrons were dressed up a bit (button down shirts, some jackets for men, along with jeans...

Great local food, not so far from the center, soft of 15euro by a taxi. Quick and helpful servants. Nice place to equate your evening with the friends.

Being in Bologna you never get a bad choice of food at any place you go. However this restaurant is exceptional, food is very Italian and very delicious. We were there in time of mushrooms season and enjoyed a lot fresh mushrooms. Home-made pasta is fantastic and personal is very friendly. Enjoy!

In an Italian trip that was filled with great good, this restaurant was easily the best we visited. From service to food to wine, Bitone exceeded our expectations - which were high given everything we had read about the restaurant. It's a little out of the way but don't let that stop you. It's absolutely worth the few extra minutes... More

This restaurant exceeded my expectations in so many ways. All week in Bologna, the meals were either catered by the hotel or big noisy events at a downtown osteria. This meal was relaxing and enjoyable. My lack of skill in Italian was no problem as all of the staff spoke good English. The Maitre'D guided his staff with precision and... More

I was lucky enough to be entertained here for lunch and I was introduced to Sig. Cesare the proprietor. We sat at the table at 12.30 for lunch and left at 5 pm enjoing the company of the man himself. :-)) True Italian style !!!! Antipasti, primi e dolci da paradiso. No room for other food. Incredible selection of wines... More

I had lunch with my family in this restaurant a couple of months ago, but I decided to wait before posting my comments, because I didn't want to seem too enthusiastic. Actually, I do think this is one of the best restaurants I've ever known. Here you would enjoy much more than an excellent meal. If you are Italian, you... More

Here again. I just love the dining experience this restaurant delivers. The food is amazing, the service excellent however unobtrusive. From the outside it looks nothing, but once you step inside the fine dining begins. For a special occasion I would highly recommend.
