“Good food but unacceptable service”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

The waiter, at first over attentive, totally lost interest after misunderstanding over our order. The very long wait for our plate of charcuterie was not made any better when we saw locals arriving after us and being served the same dish long before us.

No problem with the food when it arrived and busy surrounds very pleasant.

“Great food & service”
Reviewed December 3, 2012 via mobile

Nice authentic Italian food nice to find on tour first night in town. Well cooked & great service, English speakers too. Be sure to ask for an Italian hot chocolate you won't believe your taste buds.

“Need to do”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Il Calice has become one of my favorite places in Bologna! It is a great location to sit on the terrace and do people watching and meeting while eating one of their nice dishes! Friendly waiters!

Great place to relax and enjoy an aperol spritz and light snacks. Outdoor seating is available. Service is friendly and speaks English. Located near the Pavilion.

“microwave”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Good location but first and second dishes are cooked by microwaves (and expensive 10€ each for first, 16€ for the second), they serve water in plastic bottle and you pay the cover also. I found that the bread falls on the floor but it's however good to sell. The waiters don't speak english and the boss too. You can find a lot of "better" other place and spend less.
