We spent 4 days in "Il Cucco" with our 11 years old daughter.

The organic farm, country side house & the restaurant are an managed by Alessandra & Angelo.
the house is very well kept & Room was specious, clean & air conditioned, white cotton linen, organic soap & shampoo. Towels were replaced & room was cleaned every day.
the farm is in a good spot to reach all the main cities in Bologna.

Our daughter was happy to see the animals (Donkeys, ducks & chickens) & fruits & vegetables growing in the fields & greenhouse.
Alessandra was almost always around, coking for dinner, making jam, baking biscotti, etc.

Breakfast was reach. With fresh fruits, yogurt, home made organic jams & bread, boiled eggs, cheese & ham, cake & cookies. There were two juice machines to squeeze & make our own orange or other fruits juice.
Dining room had fresh fruits from the farm & cold water during the whole day.

The in-house restaurant was really good.
Nice Italian home made cooking, organic pasta, fresh meat (slow food).
We had two suppers & even our picky daughter ate everything she was served.
There is also a special, discounted menu for the Agriturismo guests.

Alessandra & Angelo were really helpful, advising good places to go, connecting us & giving direction to local markets & food producers (Aceto, Parmigianino, etc.).

We will certainly stay there again if we come to Bologna area.

Dear All,

Having lived in Italy for the last 10 years and the last 3 years in Bologna this restaurant does live up to any of these excellent reviews. This is an average osteria (agrioturismo) with restaurant prices, overall a poor rating in my book.

Went there to have Easter lunch with the family 2 days ago and this is my experience:
- poor parking facilities. Space for 12 cars. Restaurant has space for over 80 guest.

Easter menu:
1) Food.
All the food was prepared in the morning making the salad dull and starting to turn brown at the edges. All the meat except the steak was prepared early in the day making it extremely dry.

2) Service Average/below average.
Waiters did not know what they were serving. We asked for a nice bottle of wine and we were given house wine.

Menu : Starter Green salad with 8 thinly sliced egg. Then a fresh spinach soup. 4 kinds of meat. Dessert 1 ball of ice cream with 1 slice of sweet bread.

Generally the food/service here was not better than a visit to an average trattoria any where in Italy, and we paid restaurant prices : 50e / person.

Good morning, sir.
I apologize if I answer in Italian, but none on Easter has had the need to converse in English and then I read that you live in Italy for ten years, why talk in Italian definitely better than me to talk about the 'English .
We are sorry that you have not found good, however, in his review, there are some inaccuracies that undermine its credibility.
The first is that the menu was made up of many flow which together give a sense to the same. In fact, in major Holidays such as Christmas and Easter, we offer our customers a menu specific and articulated, which finds its reason in the fact that members of the host family can share the same course throughout the duration of the meal, just as happens when is invited to a lunch at the home of important relatives.
In this case, the menu consisted of a starter greetings with eggs, Easter symbol, creamed spinach, duck ravioli, three types of meat, a baked and other freshly cooked, garnish asparagus, potatoes and vegetables fantasy , all organic, homemade ice cream and dove, as well as bread and pasta.
The cost of the Easter menu was €. 32.00 (same as last year), excluding drinks: we consider a fair price with no additional costs of service and cover.
The second thing is that no day that our client has spent €. 50.00 per head.
A family of four, only, had no pleasure in finding qusta formula and was therefore the only one to take only a part, however large, of the menu. The wine served was not what the House, but a Pignoletto Reno Bonezzi organic, sparkling and, having chosen not to take the whole bottle, was served in half-liter carafe. The final bill was, outright, of € .25,00 each for a total of €. 109.00 with drinks for four people, that is €. 27.25 apiece.
Another couple with a child who has eaten a plate of pasta, has spent a total of €. 88.00 with quality wine and other beverages. This was the highest average expenditure: everyone else has spent between €. And € 36.00. 38.00 per head.
The third thing is that the price is not related to the type of place where you find, there are restaurants where you spend little trattorias where you spend a lot and also for the farm is this: those of us who prepare everything in house - bread, pasta, sweets, ice cream, biscuits, jams, yogurt - and uses high quality raw materials, can not have low prices.
Then, it is a fair law judge not positive our kitchen and our tastes, and this, as I mentioned earlier, sorry. But we are aware that it is almost impossible to please everyone!
Sincerely, Alessandra e Angelo
