A rather upmarket place which produces very good food based on the traditional ingredients but with a modern twist. Light polenta, stunning risotto, good, if complicated salads. Very nice wines by the glass. I would return.

We went here with a friend who is studying in Bologna. All of our meals were exceptional and the service was just right, attentive but not fussy. Very comfortable and relaxed, but also sophisticated atmosphere.
