Reviewed June 9, 2019

We'd been having a great time eating beautiful Italian food on our European holiday, but as Australians were hankering after the kind of Asian cooking we get at home, with rice instead of pasta and bread, chilli and other spices, lighter preparation techniques, and a...wide range of vegetables integrated into dishes rather than as sides. It turned out our Bologna hotel was on the edge of the local Chinese neighbourhood, and a Google search revealed a recently-opened, highly-rated Chinese restaurant – La Cucina di Peng. We're so glad we went. It was a sensational meal. We started with duck tongues and a seaweed salad (not on the menu, but in a fridge with other cold starter specialties), followed by a braised whole sea bass in a spicy sauce with an array of vegetables served in a gas cooktop. They were all gourmet dishes, and tasted particularly good with the steamed rice (yeah!) and Chinese green tea (leaf, not teabag) we also ordered. Melbourne, where we come from, has some amazing Chinese restaurants, but La Cucina di Peng would have no trouble competing with them. And at 36 euros for two for a very full meal, the value wes equally amazing. Very highly recommended, and they're also lovely people.More
