We’ve been to this place twice now. The first time there was a function going on so we were charged €35 pp, there was 4 of us and we ordered from the set menu, the food was average but the entertainment was good. The staff...were all so helpful. On our second night it was just the two of us. Again there was a private function going on but they had tables available for walk ins. We ordered from their original menu. The food was ok. I had the chicken but it came out cold(I didn’t read the menu properly, so it was meant to be cold) but it was very enjoyable served with balsamic and rocket salad. My husband had the fillet steak he ordered medium but parts of it was rare but it was still good but if you’re like us and prefer more than just the meat order the chips or veg as all that’s on the plate is steak and rocket leaves. The staff on the second night we were there were also very good and helpful. All in all it’s a restaurant I would visit again. It’s a lovely atmosphere tooMore

Together with 4 friends, we decided to spend the New Year`s Eve at Villa Meraville, in the outskirts of Bologna. The villa is a beautiful one as an architectural piece of a better past, the area around it is a nice park but once inside,...the impression is ruined. The furniture and the rest of the accessories are of worst taste and quality. On the walls, for ex. there is a lot of kitschy stuff, the light is poor, the tables are crowded and there was no place to dance, even if we had a DJ doing his best (not enough though) to entertain us.The food was pretty good but the management decided to bring it in a fast rate so that in a 3 hours span we were fed (up) with all 7 courses. The waiters were overwhelmed as well as us. At 1 am everybody left, including the waiters and the host couldn`t help us get a taxi, we couldn`t either so we had to walk for 4 km (in the dark and cold) to reach our hotel. All in all it was a bad experience and we regretted paying 80 euros per capita for this "cenone".More

Poor services and kitsch interior decorations. Despite the great architecture of the building, the management of the interior design is poor and that makes the place looks cheap and unattractive. They bring all the food and drinks in a span of 3 hours ( 4...or 5 ). The place is situated outskirt of Bologna and is difficult to reach it on foot!More

We were staying nearby for one night before flying home from Bologna airport (after a weekend in San Marino) and our host recommended and booked a table for us at Villa Meraville. The welcome was warm, with a glass of prosecco, and the setting beautiful...and peaceful. We enjoyed three courses, the highlight of which was definitely the steak (we had the thin slices fillets with sea salt but made using the Angus steak) which melted in the mouth. Service was fantastic, we were well attended to and the waiter was very careful to make sure we understood the menu which was in Italian only. At the end of the meal we were given limoncello and liquorice liqueur to taste. Overall the meal was great value for money and we had an excellent last night of holiday. Because of the location it's good to remember to use insect repellent before going to dinner, it's in a wooded area so we got some bites but obviously we don't hold the restaurant responsible for nature! The only thing that could be improved is the toilets, which reflect that the restaurant is part of a sports club. They were clean and fine but didn't match the luxury that the rest of the experience gave off.More

Of our week long stay in this region and Tuscany it was the best food we had! We had a set four course menu and it was superbly presented, excellently prepared and service was prompt, professional and courteous. Really can not say much more about...the place. It is a bit hidden but once you are seated and dining, it was a really relaxed and nice place to have an evening meal / late lunch on a beautiful June day in Bologna. We had no idea what we were going to receive but the waiter was so kind to lead us and just make all things flow well. We booked a groupon for about 67 Euros for four but the value you get is sooo much more than this. Would definitely come back and definitely would recommend this restaurant.More
