I am normally hesitant to dine at hotel restaurants as they can be very 'touristy' and normally offer uninteresting and neutral menus. As it was a Monday night most places were closed we decided to have a meal anyway - what a pleasant surprise! And the place was packed - A testimony to great affordable dining with super efficient service.... More

Introduced to me by one of my Italian customers, I had a business lunch at this excellent restaurant on a Monday, when many good restaurants in Bologna still close (especially my favourites). The flavours of my primo dish rendered me speechless! The fresh, al dente pasta really celebrated the seasonal truffle and creamy buffalo cheese - everyone must try the... More

Great Restaurant with good food and great busy vibe. Lovely ambiance and good service however on a very busy night the service was a little slow.

This is a really lovely restaurant with outstanding (if hurried) service. We enjoyed a delicious ample salad and two pasta entrees that were delicious. Prosecco was served gratis to start the meal, as were some small appetizers. My only quibble is the stark white atmosphere, which echoes the hotel in which it's located. I felt a bit like I was...

Very good restaurant. A little bit far from downtown, with nice garden and nice environment. The dishes are rally good and the whole atmosphere is really very good. A little bit expensive. I really recommend it

The restaurant offers very convenient dining for its residents. It is spacious, with tables indoor and outdoor. The staff are all professional, attentive and fluent in English as many nationalities were dining here. You are greeted with a glass of prosecco - always a nice touch. There is a wide-ranging menu of local dishes, the best of which is the... More

Our visit started so well, complimentary glass of fizz on arrival and good recommendation for wine. Our main meals arrived, without any side dishes..... We waited, and waited.... Tried to get someone's attention, but to no avail.... Eventually after 15 minutes, our food now cold, I had to virtually chase a waitress around. She explain she thought we would have... More

We dined twice here while staying at the hotel. The food and service are very good. The price is reasonable (especially for the dishes, the drinks come at hotel prices). If you're staying at the hotel, there is no need to dine elsewhere! Just relax and enjoy.
