Had a wonderful meal here while visiting the city on recommendation from our taxi driver. Family run business and Ricardo treated us to some excellent dishes and his uncles wine. Good value for money.

I have booked a table for 21st October 2016 at 7.30pm in the name of Graham Mickley but did not change number required to 4 people. How do I add another two people to the booking?

As the others have advised, just email or call. They are most obliging and English is well spoken.
Hi there, We'll be in Bologna on Easter Monday, March 28, 2016. Will De Cesari be open on that date for lunch (between 12pm- 2pm)? If so, when will reservations become available? Thank you!
