Il ristorante si trova in un palazzo nobiliare a pochi metri da Piazza Maggiore, di fronte alla cattedrale di San Pietro. Parte del Grand Hotel Majestic, nella grande stanza affrescata dalla scuola dei Carracci sono elegantemente apparecchiati i tavoli, grandi vasi di fiori freschi in un ambiente che ci porta subito con la mente ai primi del’900 quando queste stanze vennero trasformate in hotel di lusso.

Da meno di un anno guida la cucina lo chef Cristian Mometti, lunga esperienza nell’alta cucina, grande rispetto per gli ingredienti, sempre alla ricerca della massima qualità e di tecniche innovative. In carta sia un menù creativo che quello della tradizione che vuole rievocare le tavole della festa delle famiglie nobili bolognesi con ricette originali e proposte di una tipicità non scontata.

Scritto da Francesca Gamberini, bolognese, ex ristoratrice, si occupa di cultura gastronomica da quindici anni. Attualmente collabora con agenzie di comunicazione nella produzione di eventi e ha un blog frafoodstories.com dove racconta storie di cucina, cibo e viaggi.

INSIDER tip

Le nuove formule di proposta come il gran carrello dei bolliti o il pranzo della domenica sono il frutto della ricerca dello chef Mometti per una cucina tradizionale di qualità ed eleganza uniche.

Al a carte pasta was good as a starter but overpriced for what it is. You can get better quality pasta elsewhere in Bologna cheaper. Main goose course was awful, mostly bone and tough meat. Had to send back and I chose a replacement pork dish which was essentially a schnitzel with cheese. Definitely not fine dining. Lots of theater but food overpriced and not up to scratch. I wouldn't recommend.

Our best dining experience in Bologna by far. Great atmosphere, great service and great food. We did not choose one of the menus, but chose al a carte. Still we had plenty to eat. An enjoyable evening. Not too expensive given the quality of the experience. A great choice for our last night in Bologna.

Despite my disappointment with the quality of the food, which for £100 a head should have been exceptional, the actual setting and service made it a very pleasant meal.

Very creative and updated cousin. Excellent service and very professional welcoming. Warm atmosphere in a historic place. We had ask in advance for a special request due to our wedding anniversary celebration and everything was fabulous. Thank you I Carracci.

Food just wasn’t as good as you would expect for such an expensive meal. Lots of hype with presentation. Food was good but certainly not close to world clas.

Beautiful restaurant with excellent staff. Food was very good but was just short of exceptional. The octopus was delicious. On balance I would recommend

A truly beautiful restaurant in Bologna city centre. Service is impeccable - solicitous, very friendly and professional, and efficient. While the restaurant is fine-dining it is also children friendly. Food is good with fresh local ingredients, though the cooking is slightly on the conservative side.

We loved our evening spent here in the beautiful dining room. The staff were welcoming, attentive, informative, professional and friendly. The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The chef’s “food gifts” both before and after our meal were delightful and much appreciated. Thank you to all the team both at the front and back of house. Your skill, pride and passion was evident.

An excellent choice for ou
r 20th anniversary meal. We were made to feel special from the moment we arrived. The 5 course local cuisine tasting menu was superb and the sommeliers wine choice excellent. Expensive but worth every penny.

The service was impeccable. The food was cooked to perfection. My wife’s dish was more spicy than expected so we switched plates and it worked out just fine.

Atmosphere is classic but OK, Service is Very good, friendly and attentive . Wine cart is nice at reasonable pricesKitchen is a little disappointing , The poached egg is top, but most of the other dishes miss ‘that little bit more’
If you want to be top , you first need to be top in what you serve.

Beautiful surroundings and an interesting menu. We went for the Emilia set meal which was good in parts (the starter and dessert particularly). The mains of pasta and veal were rather ordinary considering the price. Wine generally good - go for the local wines like the Sangiovese.
