We were on a tour and this is where our farewell dinner was held. We had chucroute, a cheese platter, capaletti, green lasagna Bolognese and zuppa inglese. All were fantastic!

Stumbled across this tucked away gem during our last night of a week long vacation. Really enjoyed the Veal and the Tortellini's. Tiramisu was amazing. House red wine was quality too. Definitely give this my recomendation. Felt comfortable and appreciated.

We reserved ahead for our meal at Buca Manzoni over Easter, it was worth booking, very nice traditional decor, lovely food, decent house wine - good reasonable prices and good service. I would seek it out again if I was in Bologna.

This restaurant was literally around the corner from our hotel (Grand Hotel Majestic) and having arrived in Bologana a few hours earlier we thought this would be a good place to try. We had a salad to star which could have done with some love...More

Good food, served in a vaulted restaurant setting. Don't be put off by the clutter decorating the restaurant nor the menus which are in need of an upgrade. The food is good and our waiter was pleasant and knowledgable.

Ho trovato poco elegante il riferimento alla regione Sicilia fatto in risposta ad un commento lasciato da una persona presumibilmente siciliana a luglio 2016... che peraltro aveva dato 3 pallini e solo segnalato come ritenesse alto il conto. Immagino sia una svista? Buonasera
