We love the food and service here so much we came back for dinner the very same day! The tagliatelle funghi porcini was absolutely delightful - my wife had the same dish both times and says it's the best mushroom pasta she has tasted. Thank you for the delicious food, made even more wonderful by the warm

With all the good reviews for this restaurant, we went there for our dinner. Lucky we went there early so no need to wait to be seated. The good taste good and the portion is quite large so we are quite full with this meal. However as we are new to Bologna and doesn't know that Crescentine is a kind... More

Our starter of fresh sliced dried meats was delicious and we learned about an enjoyed the fried dough to go with it. Our tortellini in chicken broth was tender and tasty. The sliced beef was tender and done... More

We went here because it was highly rated on trip advisor (and open on a Monday). While the staff were keen to be helpful, the place seemed confused. Lots of the usual stuff on menus but then some weird secondis - my boyfriend had and inedible Parmesan basket with meat. My food was ok but the decor & radio was... More

This bistro is one of the best we have been to in Bologna! Allessandra is absolutely lovely, very passionate about her business and giving great customer service. We did not intend to have three courses but after having the loveliest starters and main, we decided we must have a dessert. Allessandra made us a huge dessert, chocolate cake, nut cake,... More

We dropped in for dinner without a reservation but we were quickly seated. We asked for help choosing our wine and we told if it wasn't to our taste we could change it...It was lovely. We decided to order a starter to share and we were guided through the menu for both starters and the second courses by the attentive... More
