On our last night in Bologna we opted for the reasonably priced 5 course tasting menu. After 2 wonderful courses we were wishing we had chosen the 7 course version ! Fresh and original cooking beautifully presented with a truly amazing panna cotta and lavender...More

The food is really excellent, imaginative and different. The issue is that there simply aren't enough staff to cope. We were left waiting for over an hour between courses whilst they focused on some large groups in the restaurant. The taster menu is actually good...More

Been twice, both times had exceptional food at reasonable prices. Service is solid. Bit out of the way, which is the only reason this spot hasnt gotten more publicity! Upscale and innovative Italian food served at solid prices. Wine list is particularly reasonable!

Dear Pa. K, thank you for your review. Firstly, we decided not to provide wireless network because in 2017 all people spent their time with mobile phone instead of speaking with other guys at the table or reading a book. We are working on having...More
