Recommended by hotel staff as the best example for Bolognese cuisine. The meal was rather uninspiring and flavourless, but the whole evening was spoilt by over attentive staff hovering beside our table, who at the end asked if we would like to leave a tip.

Had dinner in Cesarina with my family. It was a good option in Bologna. I had a option with three traditional dishes from bologna and it was great, the past is really taste and you can share in two. Also had a great appetizer of local cheese and ham. Recommended.

We were recommended the Ristorante Cesarina by the staff at the Grand Majestic Baglioni and at first when they said that had availability we were a bit sceptical because we wondered if they had a motive behind recommending restaurants so we walked past it before we actually went it to see what it was like and it looked absolutely lovely...

Menu had starters , pasta course , then mains. So......we shared a meat platter to start, then I had the Ragu for my main ( 12 euros). My husband had a... More

Does all the classic dishes well with no fuss though prepared spot on. Stuffed pork chop was really excellent as was the Italian Pinot Noir the sommelier selected for me. Worth a visit.

The Restaurant is well located and the ambience is very elegant. The waiter at the entrance was extremely rude with us; he told us that every table had a reservation. I went inside and got a table.......The food was decent, and the manager apologize for the inconvenience.

We asked our hotel to book us reservations at an authentic restaurant that would serve great Bolognese food. This was it! I had the lasagna and my husband had tortellini with spicy pork in cream sauce. So so good. And very reasonably priced considering what all you get. Worth a try but you may want to get reservations as it... More

We were fortunate to get a table on a Monday night. Attentive service and memorable food. The recommended meatballs and stuffed courgettes were so flavoursome! But the €7.00 coperto change for two was well above the usual in Bologna.

We went here on our last night in Bologna and we were not disappointed. We sat inside as the outside was fully booked. I count ourselves lucky we got a table as the restaurant was full. The menu is extensive. The food was wonderful and had all the typical dishes of Bologna. The service was unbelievable. We had a lovely... More
