“Great food, lovely people”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

We really enjoyed our meal in this lovely restaurant, a couple of weeks ago! We chose the menu, and with coffee afterwards we counted 7 courses. All of them were very good, not too big, so that you could actually look forward to yet another course without feeling stuffed. The staff were very friendly and enthusiastic about their product, and were able to explain things in broken English.

“Mediocre food with TINY portions and over priced for the taste of only butter”
Reviewed June 5, 2011

Very disappointed to visit this restaurant after the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We started with the degustation of four first courses for EUR25 per person. The food in Emilia Romagna is famous for its taste but this restaurant only relies on butter! The portions are VERY small - one of the four degustations was served in a cup and the amount of the pasta was less than half the cup! I can understand this if each degustation is rich in flavour and ingredients but here was NO taste except the butter and the ingredients are inexpensive (AGAIN we heard that the father collects the herbs in the field). The four degustations in total would not have even made one normal serving of pasta - at EUR25 for 1 plate of pasta this is excessive - we are not in Milan or Venice but in Bagno di Romagna! Yes the staff are polite but this does not adequately compensate. After the poor result for the first courses we decided to not waste further money on even dessert. Very dissapointed.
