We stopped before dinner, so could not try the restaurant menu. Ambience is elegant and cozy. Service is good. Feels like a fusion place. Nice cocktails. Will be back for dinner.

In a corner as prestigious as hidden in the historic center of Bologna, there is I Conoscenti that takes its name from the fourteenth-century Palazzo Conoscenti, next to the Museo Civico Medievale. Very nice environment with modern, minimal but warm furnishing. Helpful and professional staff....This restaurant offers a contemporary cuisine with some international influences. Between pasta we choose "Spaghetto Benedetto Cavalieri, acciughe, limone e crema di cavolfiore" and "Tubettino Benedetto Cavalieri ai frutti di mare, clorofilla di prezzemolo e limone" both dishes were cared for and prepared with quality products. To follow we had "Crescione thai 2.0 con prugne all'aceto e salsa agrodolce" it is a starter, "Millefoglie di zucchine, scamorza di Agerola e gel di acqua di pomodoro" and "Pescato del giorno con salsa al curry e contorno di stagione". Once again everything was excellent. Interesting choice of cocktails paired with food. Quite expensive but it worth the price.More

I was spending the weekend in Bologna with friends and we were looking for a nice restaurant for dinner, booking was so easy through their website andI got the confirmation very efficiently. The day of the booking we needed to change the time and delay...it a bit, I called and it was changed with no problem. The restaurant is tastefully decorated and the staff are very friendly and professional. The menu is not very extensive but the food was utterly delicious, especially the Rib-eye steak that was cooked to perfection and melting in the mouth. Overall, a great experience, 100% recommended!More

Love this place! Great vibe, beautiful, cool bar and restaurant, and all the staff are really friendly. I booked this place for aperitif and dinner during business trip to Bologna. Jerry at I Conoscenti organized drinks and dinner for 12 people and was incredibly helpful...from the start, and also accommodating when some people had to cancel. Food was delicious and good value. Definitely coming back!More

Thi place is everything you can ask for in terms of hospitality: it’s glamorous, the service is impeccable, the bartender is a genius, the food is authentic, creative , attractive, but most of all, extremely good. They treated me and my family as royalty and...I had the best birthday dinner in years . Thank you !More

I Conoscenti is the best Italian food I’ve ever tasted, even though I’ve lived in Bologna for half a year trying lots of different restaurants. It was an experience both for the tastebuds and the eye, the atmosphere was so welcoming and the waiters were...warm and professional. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something specialMore

We had dinner here for two nights in a row. The food was amazing and the wine as well. Especially the 6€ wine form barbera. We shared the starter but the gave it to us on seperate plates, nicely served. They also gave us sourdough...bread which we enjoyed a lot. The dinner was located in a typically Bologna Portici. The bisque risotto with scampi was good. To conclude, we would recommend this restaurant to friends and family.More

This restaurant and bar should be on everyone's list when coming to Bologna. The food was out of this world! Really, it can compete with the top restaurants of the world. Modern, delicious and served with a great attitude. Sublime. The drinks and wine were...spot on. Very hip vibe.More

We decided to try a modern/fusion restaurant in a city that prides itself on its gastronomic heritage.. The food is very average, they are trying to be so modern that there is no relation to the original, one of guest ordered a cacio e Pepe...spaghetti. There was so much melted cheese that the spaghetti were drowned and no Pepe, but lots of lemon ?? The pigeon was raw, literally raw!!! The wine list is good and so are the free nibbles. We asked the bill so many times, that after 40 minutes we put our coats on, as a hint that we wanted to leave.... For that kind of monies, they need to lift their game. All in all, a wouldn’t go back.More
