    The restaurant staff were very welcoming and helpful in recommending dishes. I thought the food was exceptional with wonderful flavour and quality. I would thoroughly recommend Gessetto Restorante.

    Excellent and friendly service. Special request was graciously accommodated by management. Food was good, although for our taste, we needed to add a bit of seasoning. We had the carpaccio to start with Parmesan and sunflower seeds (tasty but meat could have been a bit more tender), lasagna and tagliatelle bolognese (both were very good) and veal flambé with potatoes (the house specialty which was okay). Wine list was limited with carefully selected labels. We will probably come back on a future visit to try some of the other menu items which looked delicious as we surveyed the room.

    Very good meal. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The zucchini starter was fantastic, as was the pasta of the house.

    This was our favourite restaurant in the week of our stay in Bologna. The food was fantastic and every dish was explained to us by the lovely staff there. It was obvious that they took their food very seriously and everything was cooked with love for their wonderful ingredients. A really really good evening.

    So delicious! We really enjoyed this little restaurant. From the staff to the atmosphere to the food, everything was wonderful. The mixed meat appetizer and Lasagna Bolognese were the best we ever tasted. Highly recommended!

    Gessetto was a lovely restaurant, and very accomodating. We arrived an hour early and wanted to sit outside rather than inside (where our table for 6 was ready) and nothing was too much trouble. All the food was delicious - we particularly liked their lasagne (best in Bologna we thought) and veal. Their homemade pasta and bread were great. After dinner had suggestions of local liqueurs. If we were staying longer we'd definitely go back. Serving staff were friendly and funny as well as informative.

    Great meal and great service. Giangorgio and Daniello proved to be excellent hosts. Sharing their house-made olive oil and suggestions for our meal. I chose lasagna and Carlos got tagliatelle with sausage. Both of us were pleased with our choices.

    Proper food, but nothing really exceptional. Staff really helpful. Almost to the point where you feel being constantly stared at.

    Delightful staff who were attentive and welcoming. Delicious zucchini starter followed by tasty lasagne washed down with a delicious bottle of amarone. Very pleasant way to spin our last evening in Bologna. Look forward to returning in the future.

    Great place. Food was a little different from traditional italien, which we love, but still simple flavours. Service was attentive and friendly. Thank you for a great meal.

    Great place for dinner at an affordable price. Place was not busy but could have been the night and time (8 pm)! Tagliatelle was fresh and delicious, the veal was tender and tasty. Overall a great experience.

    We were seated outside, which made for some good people watching with all of the foot traffic on the street. The food was very delicious and you get a lot of it for a quite reasonable price. Be sure to try the zucchini’s coffer starter dish, if it’s available. Also, make sure to get reservations if you go for dinner, as this place was packed and they were turning away anyone that didn’t have reservations.

    Delicious home made lasagne, and grilled vegetables. Not the sloppy version we get in the UK. Generous portions, reasonably priced. Friendly attentive service. We hope to go back tomorrow if possible, which is the highest recommendation!

    Casual place for a casual lunch or dinner. Presentation of the food is very basic. The dishes are fresh and tasty though. Value for money is good.
