We arrived without reservation and they took us anyway, staff is very nice and serviceable. The sommelier made a great wine suggestion of a local wine. We were a party of three and we all had different meals with great taste all three of them. This is not a low budget restaurant but it's worth every euro

Nice restaurant, one of the best in bologna but a bit pricey, not child friendly and limited choice on menu. Although the food is very good here.

We stayed in Savoia Regency 2 years ago for 3 days and visited Garganelli every evening. So, this year it was no doubt in what hotel to stay and where to go for dinner. Certainly, Savoia and beloved Garganelli! In our last evening of our vacation in Italy we were so happy to be here again! Food was delicious, atmosphere... More

I am normally hesitant to dine at hotel restaurants as they can be very 'touristy' and normally offer uninteresting and neutral menus. As it was a Monday night most places were closed we decided to have a meal anyway - what a pleasant surprise! And the place was packed - A testimony to great affordable dining with super efficient service.... More

Introduced to me by one of my Italian customers, I had a business lunch at this excellent restaurant on a Monday, when many good restaurants in Bologna still close (especially my favourites). The flavours of my primo dish rendered me speechless! The fresh, al dente pasta really celebrated the seasonal truffle and creamy buffalo cheese - everyone must try the... More

Great Restaurant with good food and great busy vibe. Lovely ambiance and good service however on a very busy night the service was a little slow.

This is a really lovely restaurant with outstanding (if hurried) service. We enjoyed a delicious ample salad and two pasta entrees that were delicious. Prosecco was served gratis to start the meal, as were some small appetizers. My only quibble is the stark white atmosphere, which echoes the hotel in which it's located. I felt a bit like I was...

Very good restaurant. A little bit far from downtown, with nice garden and nice environment. The dishes are rally good and the whole atmosphere is really very good. A little bit expensive. I really recommend it
