This is a nice small intimate restaurant with the true flavoring of Italy. The wine list was moderate but with some real bargains listed. The service was very good and everyone from the restaurant would stop over to say hello. It had that family feeling...More

First of all I want to emphasize that these are new owners, I wasn't too excited about the old Bologna, a bit snobby, but this new owner has really done a fab job on the northern Italian cuisine. My wife had the octopus appetizer and...More

Had a very nice dinner for 2 here. Salmon and eggplant parm were v. Good. We had a bottle of the house Chardonnay from Empoli IT. I’d say it was good. Light and lemony, almost like a Pinot Grigio. There’s a deli with cheeses and...More

Stopped in for dinner and was most pleased by quality of food and service. Reopened under new ownership in October, chef and owner clearly know how to prepare a meal. Starting with a well shaken vodka martini, things only got better. Fresh mozzarella appetizer amazing,...More

This is a very nice looking restaurant with good service. The food is good to so-so and the portions are smallish, but the prices are high. They make a BIG deal of being a Northern Italian restaurant and they even tell you in the menu...More
