The only poor food and service we experienced on our trip. They made a mistake on our order and charged us for the mistake and the correct item. As you sit outside they have street peddlers harassing you to buy trinkets. The restaurant seemed oblivious!

I recently organised a staff dinner here. It was ideal for what we were looking for. We were a group of 30 people and as the restaurant is quite large with different rooms and alcoves it was ideal for us. We could make noise without bothering other people.
The service was excellent and well paced (there was certainly no rush to get us out so they could sell the table again - a pet hate of mine).
The food was traditional Bolognese and no left hungry!

While I wouldn't necessarily pick this place for a romantic evening I couldn't have picked better for our evening there.

We were a international group of 23 so it was a big challenge to service us but they met the challenge. The restaurant got very crowded later in the evening. Great fun, great atmosphere. Where the locals go. We had so many dishes that I lost count. Each one better. Great wine. Prior to the meal we attended a class on how to make different pastas. This restaurant has a pasta chef whos sole job is to make the home made pasta that is served at the restaurant. Late in the evening there is live jazz.music. We walked back to the ArtHotel Orologio where we were staying . That was so much fun as the streets were crowed and alive

It may be the oldest jazz bar in Bologna but the food is pretty dire and over-priced. Even the wine [which I intentionally paid for a good one] wasn't up to much.The jazz was even a bit 'iffy' the night we were there. Would not recommend it. There is a jazz bar across the street which was better value.

We had great steaks here and went back for another meal. The food is good and the jazz is extra. It is huge so you can go for a meal and have the jazz as background, or sit near the band and really listen to the music.
