The wait staff are welcoming, polite and attentive. The restaurants decor is warm and inviting and whilst the variety of dishes available are plentiful, unfortunately the food is not equal to the price being charged for it, in my opinion. It is decent and fairly well prepared but I wouldn't say it is outstanding. Non of it seemed particularly fresh... More

Nice diversion from the overcrowded and inexpensive pizzerias and pasta houses of Bologna. Pumpkin filled ravioli as a starter was very good although a little too sweet for my taste. Service by white jacketed, professional and friendly, helpful waiters. Breaded veal with prosciutto and cheese in a rich sauce was excellent. Breaded and fried lamb chops were perfect. Both meals...

I could highly recommend this restaurant to everybody. The dishes that we've ordered were very tasty. And waiters were polite and considerate.

Recommended by hotel staff as the best example for Bolognese cuisine. The meal was rather uninspiring and flavourless, but the whole evening was spoilt by over attentive staff hovering beside our table, who at the end asked if we would like to leave a tip.

Had dinner in Cesarina with my family. It was a good option in Bologna. I had a option with three traditional dishes from bologna and it was great, the past is really taste and you can share in two. Also had a great appetizer of local cheese and ham. Recommended.

We were recommended the Ristorante Cesarina by the staff at the Grand Majestic Baglioni and at first when they said that had availability we were a bit sceptical because we wondered if they had a motive behind recommending restaurants so we walked past it before we actually went it to see what it was like and it looked absolutely lovely...

Does all the classic dishes well with no fuss though prepared spot on. Stuffed pork chop was really excellent as was the Italian Pinot Noir the sommelier selected for me. Worth a visit.

The Restaurant is well located and the ambience is very elegant. The waiter at the entrance was extremely rude with us; he told us that every table had a reservation. I went inside and got a table.......The food was decent, and the manager apologize for the inconvenience.
