very nice location several blocks off the main square with excellent outdoor seating and a very attentive wait staff. All the food was excellent with the exception of the recommended(by the waiter) fried bolognese platter. I never thought it would be possible to fry custard, strawberries, apples etc but they proved me wrong. Everything else was very good. Would certainly... More

I went here upon the recommendation of our hotel with my in-laws and it was very good. The wine was lovely. The food was all great and the service was superb. Highly recommended.

We went here for lunch and had the mist refined meal in Bologna so far. We ordered grilled squid and prawns and risotto with asparagus and the food was delicious. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

We were recommended this restaurant by our concierge and were certainly not disappointed. We were not particularly hungry having grazed on so many different foods through the day so chose a trio of different pasta - macaroni, lasagna and fettuccine (I think!). The portions were small as befits a tasting dish but absolutely delicious - really top class flavours. The... More

We been in Italy for 3 weeks now and sadly on our last 3 days. I opted for a 5 star hotel after camping last night. And I was absolutely craving a tagliatelle Bolognaise. We found it fabulous here at Da Cesararina. The Cutlet Bolognaise was also fabulous and the fiori Di zucchini with ricotta were yummy Service was flawless... More

Saturday evening visit, on recommendation from a local we met while wandering the streets. Very local cuisine and top end quality service and price, but well worth it. We had the carpaccio to share it was melt in the mouth. J had the seared Tuna it was exquisite and I had the house special stuffed pork fillet. Great service. Go!

A traditional Bolognese restaurant offering a wide selection of local and other Italian dishes. Food is quite good. Waiters are old school professionals. Restaurant is set on bologna's most beautiful piazza, Santo Stefano. In summer a table outside is a very pleasant experience. Not the cheapest, but nothing extraordinary.

The food will blow you away. The service will make you seek therapy. Its not bad service, really. Its efficient and available. There is just no joy there. They are not going to fawn over you and they may not even smile at you. But the food. Oh my, the food! The food may just make you forgive all. We... More

We had dinner here in early June, and were able to sit outside. The food is very good, with a nice selection of local foods, as well as more wide-ranging cuisine. The food isn't cheap, but it's very good, and the wine list has a wide range of wine, starting at very reasonable prices.

Thank foodiedavid2016
