We live close by this restaurant and decided to try it. We like to support local business and were hoping this would be a good experience and we could spread the word. The experience was memorable but for all the wrong reasons. Food was mediocre at best. I ordered the Eggplant Parmesan and there was no distinguishable eggplant in the... More

Visited 5 times but generally felt food is good but small portions and overpriced at lunch. Never ate dinner there. General consensus from locals is they go there once or twice but service is fair, food just good, and overpriced. Not too popular. Room is attractive, however.

$45.00 for Ossobuco...Outrageous! I believe they think they are in NYC. Food was good but you. Enter ask "how much".

Cafe Bologna in Osprey Florida, was recommended to us, for their unforgettable northern Italian cuisine. Well it was forgettable to say the least. Our bill for 2, with only 3 beers , nothing else was over $ 200.00! Charged $ 46 for antipasto alone! It was okay ...but nothing like others we have enjoyed like Beronia. At least with Beromia...

I first visited Bologna Cafe in 2014 and have been back numerous times when visiting. Bologna Cafe looks and feels like what it is meant to be: a family-owned restaurant serving the cuisine of Bologna. Some dishes are fairly rustic, while others (like the pasta dishes prepared tableside within a wheel of Parmesan) are presented with real artistry. There are... More

Very nice place, great decor, friendly and attentive staff. I ordered lasagne which was disappointingly just average. Be sure to ask prices of specials before ordering. Spouse ordered a special pasta prepared tableside. Very nice but small portion. Price turned out to be $40, which was way above most menu items. Worth going to but be advised.

Destination Drive in Osprey Florida is a non descript Spanish style strip mall, that has been stripped of half its business and most of its retail charm. Still, Destination Drive off of the Tamiami trail is a quick trip to Northern Italy and its culinary artistry and embrace. There is no customs check upon entry but rather the welcoming smiles...
