Il Doge provides Bolognese food at reasonable prices. Interesting decor (Art Deco I think) and friendly service. They bring you a plate of focaccia while you're wanting for your main course. I don't know which was more delicious!

The restaurant is a little bit off the beaten track, so we expected to have a nice lunch. It seems very popular between locals. The meals were very average, wine served too warm. Service ok.

We were 2 couples, we ordered pizza, waited over 1hr and then we were served. They noticed something went wrong and offered us limoncello and coffee to make it up with us, I wouldn't come there for a while though.

Food was good and typical of Bologna. Service was reasonably good and the atmosphere was not touristy and was pleasant. Well worth a visit if you are nearby, and is close to the main piazza.
