We were invited by some relatives during our visit in Bologna. The place is nicely decorated, definitely it stand out. It was quite busy during our breakfast. To get a table there is no waiting line it is mostly a fighting game, forget good manner go for it full speed. Service was fast and professional, we got a different cup... More

High prices and low quality of food.. In Bologna you may find really better places, all other bars I've been there are better than this. Stay away!!!

We went for breakfast very late in the morning but we found a nice selection of pastry goods anyway! But once at the cashier the bill was crazy high for a breakfast! Even though the place is cozy I do not think it is worth the expense! (7€ for a piece of chocolate cake)

It's a very nice tea room but prices are too high. The quality Of coffee and cakes is average so their prices are not justified if not by the location

Having spent 5 days in this wonderful city of warm, friendly people this place, visited on our last afternoon, was like a slap across the face with a wet fish. Our friends live and work in Bologna and we'd been told on our first evening that espresso usually comes with a glass of water - not always the case in... More

The food was ok but over priced! 12€ for a hot chocolate and 2 slices of plum cake, in other caffe's in bologna you could eat for 3 persons with that amount. Nothing so special so I wouldn't really recommend it

A fairytale in Bologna? Yes, not far from Santo Stefano church. Avoid the weekends in winter. Too crowdy. Very good and handmade patisserie.
