I went here the first time I went to Bologna and I went back this weekend - so I made a trip back to this restaurant! Everything I've tried here is great - I recommend the caprese and any of their tortellini !

Even being an Italian, not a bolognese restaurant, I eat there the best torteloni of ever, with cheese sauce and truffles. Honest in the food and price. Very courtesy with us. Always be back.

Really good quality food, nice atmosphere even if the room was a little bright. The bill was a nice surprise as was the free limoncello. If back in Bologna will return.

Had two pizzas between us (I am not greedy) and the food was delicious. The pizzas were large and flavoursome. If you can't decide go for the signature Saraceno pizza which is three pizzas in one. Ciao

This a lovely, airy place with a very large choice and great waiters who are extremely helpful. The food backs this up, using fresh seasonal ingredients and a decent wine list. The oven baked fish is particularly good and the oven roasted potatoes are exquisite!

We wanted to have a dinner outside close to our hotel and have chosen Il Saraceno. Good choice of food and wine, service was attentive and quick, they worked really hard. Unfortunately the kitchen has disappointed us completely - bruschetta in the starter was burnt...More
