I agree with the comment above. Ring the restaurant - not Tripadvisor. Should be fine but they need to know you are coming.

Description
Tiny and cozy restaurant, placed in the city centre of Bologna, close to the main square, Piazza Maggiore and close to the train station and the most popular monuments. The restaurant suggests traditional cuisine modernized by new matches of flavours and textures. Small wine list focused on local wine with an attention for italian and international wines. A basement set up for event and art exhibitions.
