Bologna is associated in Italy with good food, and this restaurant indeed represents a smart and creative way to combine the traditional cuisine from Bologna with modern and innovative themes and solutions. Located under the typical Portici in the central part of the city, the set up of Caminetto d’Oro is at the same time unpretentious, smart and minimalist: it is really a pleasure to eat outside al fresco in the street during the good season; at the same time the inside sector of the restaurant is cozy and warm. Similarly service is quite effective and competent and it seems to have a discrete non nonsense practical approach. Menu is very interesting indeed. It has a nice range of appetizers where salami and cheese should be singled out. Primi piatti, in the best Bolognese tradition, are delicious. Tortellini and ravioli obviously deserve a mention: I had very delicious ravioli with melted parmesan cheese. Also the choice of main courses is very rich: that represent an interesting balance between tardyon and innovation. You might be tented by both fish and meat, equally good. My choice was a plate of rough meat which was simply perfect. There is also a wide selection of deserts, some of which are really outstanding. Wine list is also very rich and interesting. Although there is a wide choice of wines from all over Italy, the local list form Emilia Romagna deserves a special attention: under the advice of the restaurant’s sommelier, you might have a few unexpected nice surprises. I had my dinner with two other friends and I have really enjoyed it: no noise, relaxing atmosphere and good food: a very pleasant Bolognese evening. Recommended for all the occasions and even for the occasional visitor to Bologna.
