My first experience of Vecchia Bologna and I will be back. Enjoyed the location, the restaurant itself (decor etc), the service - very attentive waiter the evening we were there - and the food. I went with a friend and we shared a starter, had a main course each and one desert - with soft drinks - for 20GBP each.

The lunch time menu is not only extremely reasonable but the quality of food and presentation is excellent. The bruschetta starter is beautifully presented and also tasty. A work of art on a plate! Wish I had taken a photo but we were too hungry. The mussels as always are just wonderful, plentiful, served with garlic bread and a very... More

We have visited this restaurant on a number of occasions and every time have had an enjoyable experience. Last night we took our New Zealand cousins along with us and we all had steaks, OMG everyone was fantastic. The service from Marco and his team was first class. We asked for a side dish that wasn't on the menu, voila,... More

I had found this restaurant through Secret Scotland . My son and I went for dinner my first day in Scotland . Although they were not crowded, those that dined there seem to be regulars as when they arrived , the waiter had their drinks all ready poured. The food was fresh and delicious . Service quite friendly and good... More

It was our first night in Bridge of Allan and this was one of our B&B's recommended restaurants. Between us, we had a lasagne and a pizza. The pizza was a proper Italian thin crust pizza and we had a carafe of red wine. You can always tell an authentic Italian restaurant by it having Zabaglione on the menu. With... More

From the first initial contact via email i was happy that i would be in safe hands, this was confirmed on arrival. We were seated and menu was... More

First ever visit on Fathers day for Sunday lunch. We were warmly greeted on arrival and promptly shown to our table. I was slightly concerned the service would be slow as the restaurant was really busy but I needn't have been. The menu had lots of choice and our server was more than happy to answer our questions. I opted... More

I had dinner here on Sunday night with a friend. It was excellent. Service was fantastic as was the food. Top marks to the chef. As I have coeliacs I wasn't holding out much hope of there being much for me to choose from the menu. How wrong was I. I could have almost anything I wanted. It's the first... More

I've been to the restaurant many times as a diner, this was my first experience of holding a private event. We held an afternoon tea birthday party and it was fantastic. A lovely range of interesting sandwiches, fresh scones and wonderful cakes, washed down with tea and prosecco. Attentive service and a friendly atmosphere. I understand it was the first... More
