Fancy restaurant serving the best traditional lasagna in Bologna.
If you are going as a group, you can enjoy some huge sharing meals that I saw them serving.

This place is much reduced from when it was the temple of Bolognese gastronomy and wasn't helped by the fact that it was literally cut in half - the back of the restaurant and the front room were 2 separate leases and the latter refused to renew as the owners wanted to transform it into yet another lingerie franchise. Diana gets a bad rap for snobby waiters, old-fashioned food, but I've never had a problem and the lasagne is to die for - despite being such a ubiquitous dish, it's surprising how few restaurants get it right - this one does.

Lovely food, nice setting. More waiters than guests. Traditional and a bit oldfashioned. Very bright room.

I enjoyed very much the starters, the mixed boiled meat was a symphony of flavours and pleasures, together with the side sweet mostarda and green sauce.
Dessert? Ok as well.
Service is impeccable too, the wine superb.
Price is adequate.
The agnolotti were not up to par, hard and larger than mandated.
But I am a stickler to tradition, and will not condemn them for it.

We felt returning to the 50s: waiters dressed in white, many, many waiters waiting to take orders or just starring at (few) clients, thonet-like chairs and food arranged with peas and purée of potatoes, just filling the plate. The atmosphere seemed to be a gourmet restaurant though with a lot of cold electric light. At the end, nor the peas from the Freezer, nor the never seen real potatoes potato purée (interessting to know the brand?) turned out to be gourmet. And the meat bolognese with ham and cheese was salty but boring. Well, Bologna is a city of food, tast a d quality, but not the Diana: Diana is hunting down the wrong way, trying to me more as it is by the dresscode of its waiters and the prices. Never we found more boring food than in this place for this price - not even in germany...
