I was staying in a hotel just around the corner and had wisely booked a table well in advance. We were six people and everyone was overwhelmed from the quality of the food and the wine selection. I had Tagliatelle with shrimp and asparagus tips...More

This was probably our favorite "upscale" restaurants in Bologna, but it was very reasonably priced for such highly quality. The cuttlefish risotto was AMAZING.

Bologna is known for good food but this restaurant is exceptional. Having eaten twice there we think it merits a Michelin star. On both occasions our food was exceptional and there is a good wine list. The place seems to be fully booked every evening,...More

This was an outstanding upmarket trattoria located in an alley near the Piazza Maggiore. The decor is modern and smart, and the service was professional. The tortellini in brodo was the best we had in Bologna, and the suckling pig fillet in puff pastry with...More

Exceptional food and service. Tucked away in a street in the old part of Bologna. Throughly enjoyed the anti pasti which was great to share. Great selection of meat and fish dishes for main course. I can highly recommend the veal coletta.

We've been in Bologna for 4 nights and this was our favourite restaurant of the 3 dinners so far, and thoroughly recommend it. Yes it's brightly lit, which although common in Italy does somewhat spoil the romance and atmosphere of an evening out, but once...More

Elegant interior and pleasant service. The pasta course was A+, as was the veal cutlet entree. The fish entree was terrible. The fish did not taste fresh. The wine they recommended was also not very good. Maybe a B. Nice grappa, though.
