Had you placed this restaurant in my home country I might have given it a 4... But no... It is in Emilia-Romagna, the heart and sould of Italian cuisine. Summarizing, the service was great and could hardly be any better. I brought my one year...More

Do Not, I repeat, Do Not go!!! So disappointing. I was expecting this to be a Massimo Bottura restaurant. Not only did we not get a fabulous meal, we didn't even get a decent meal. Seriously awful in every way. We do have fairly high...More
