On our last trip to Bologna in 2013, Caminetto d’Oro impressed us to such an extent, that we ate here three times. You can imagine how much I was looking forward to returning. This time we had our first experience of something I can’t recall from our last visit - having to ring the doorbell to enter. I mention this... More

A sophisticated spot right of the main street that serves wonderful Bolognese food and wine, in a friendly and traditionally unhurried way. Waiters are super attentive and helpful without being bothersome. Each dish is done to perfection, and desserts are not to be missed. Wine list is superlative. Perfect for business, pleasure, or romance.

We had lunch here. Nice atmosphere, very friendly staff who speak English well. Started with one of the best mortadella we ever had together highly tasteful parmeggiano cheese. Then we had tagliatella Bolognese which was delightful. After some christmas cake with sabaillon and lovely mascarpone with grappa Barolo. For wine we had local red tremonti from 2013. We decided to... More

This place was recommended by our hotel as "one of the best restaurants in Bologna" so we booked for our first night in the food capital of Italy. It appears there are two parts to the restaurant, a fine dining area and a bistro area and we were ushered into the fine dining area. Personally I don't enjoy feeling I... More

Our experience at this restaurant was a tale of two reactions - excellent food, somewhat spoiled by terrible atmosphere and indifferent service. The dishes were excellent - pastas cooked perfectly al dente, main courses of sea bass and rabbit both delicious. However, under no circumstances allow them to seat you inside. There is no ambience whatsoever, and waiters walk past... More

The best pasta I had in Italy. Cooked to perfection, prepared with black truffles and funghi, really amazing. Good winelist, some interesting wines from various regions of Italy. Highly recommended.

Caminetto is one of those restaurants that pays homage to Bologna as the 'fat city'. The restaurant serves traditional bolognese dishes with a modern twist. Antipasti for the Mrs and I were salads. I can't really remember the names, only that mine had apples and my wife's had anchovies, both delicious. Primi for me was tagliatelle with porcini mushrooms and... More

This is high end Bologna and we were pleased we made the effort. The dishes were all cooked perfectly and all had just a little extra something that made them special. We drank local wine as directed which was rich and sumptuous. The cafe at the end of the meal was the best we had in Bologna. The service was... More

Food was really tasty here, and the wine paring the helped us with was fantastic! We had lunch here, sat outside and enjoyed every minute of it! Will most likely visit again in September, see you then!
