We found worm in our risotto, waiter did not even apologize ... staff did not care. Very disapointed and would not recommend!

Our host from our B and B managed to get us a table on a Saturday evening (early). We arrived at 7:15 to an almost empty place. By the time we left at 9pm it was heaving with a very long queue outside.

We had smoked goose breast and deep fried courgette flowers as starters - both very different but equally delicious! Followed by kidneys with mash and fresh porcini mushrooms in a Genovese sauce. Both delicious. We had the rice cake which had a lot of amaretto in it (yummy) and the warm chocolate Charlotte which was a bit too sweet and sickly for my taste. The waiter was delightful - very helpful and knowledgeable about which wine to choose.

It felt like a very traditional Italian place with a great mix of a few tourists and lots of locals who enjoy good food.

We went to Da Nello after being refused a table at Da Cesari as it was fully booked.
We sat outside as inside was fully booked. We had traditional bolognese dishes and panacotta for dessert. Everything was delicious and service was impeccable. Only downside is that if you sit outside, there will be people smoking around you which can be bothersome.

We had dinner at Da Nella twice and on both occasions we were quite thrilled by the quality of the food - it fully justifies the gastronomique reputation of Bologna. On the first occasion we sat outside and found the service particularly friendly and helpful and on the second occasion we were seated downstairs with lots of happy, hungry Italians. During the last 30 years we have eaten literally hundreds of meals in many parts of Italy but I truly don't think we have ever eaten better than our two marvelous dinners at Da Nella. We re left feeling sad that food anywhere near this quality is simply not to be found in Britain, at least in our experience.

My mum and I spotted this place down a side street while exploring the shopping district of Bologna and decided to give it a try and we are so glad that we did! The waiters were brilliant: warm, welcoming and charming. The food was perfection! A busy restaurant that we were fortunate enough to a get a table at. It was a really lovely dining experience.
