We arrived at this restaurant and they welcomed us but once we were settled they rushed us into ordering the same and then charged us more than was advertised on their board and did not bring the wine they later claimed was included. We had an Italian speaker with us so it wasn't 'lost in translation'

We ended up in Vela Azzurra after unsuccessfully trying to get a table at the nearby 'Il Posto' without a reservation. The trade-off couldn't have been better.

My husband and I went here for dinner one night while staying in Bologna for 5 days. The food was great and the service was super friendly and helpful. My husband tried the grilled calamari in kebab sticks that was amazing, and I had tortellini that were out of this world. We also shared a couple of appetizers that were... More
