Accanto a Piazza San Giuseppe, su via Galliera, l’angolo è meta di raffinati gourmet per le botteghe che negli ultimi anni vi hanno aperto. Dal 2015 anche Federica Fava e lo chef Daniele Meli hanno rilevato un locale storico. Cambio di nome che esalta la passione e l’impegno nella promozione dell’arte oltre che della buona cucina tradizionale. In sala, e in uno spazio dedicato al piano di sotto, sono esposte opere di artisti.

Classici bolognesi proposti sia in versione tradizionale che in una interpretazione creativa basata su ingredienti di stagione e eccellenze del territorio. Lasagna bolognese composta al momento così come in versione destrutturata è la croccante espressione della cotoletta di vitello alla bolognese. Carta dei vini con molte etichette locali e birre artigianali del territorio.

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

Arte e buon cibo da gustare. In quella che era una cantina un ampio spazio per mostre e degustazioni. Presto anche un laboratorio di pasta fresca e prodotti da forno.

About the restaurant L'arcimboldo

DUE PASSIONI - Il ristorante L’Arcimboldo, nel centro di Bologna, a pochi passi da Piazza VIII Agosto e dalla Stazione Centrale, nasce dal progetto di due giovani, Daniele e Federica, che uniscono le rispettive passioni per cibo e arte in uno spazio originale.

CIBO E ARTE - Le proposte gastronomiche, innovative ma rispettose della tradizione e dei prodotti locali, sono inserite in una scenografia periodicamente aggiornata, a firma di giovani artisti esordienti. Vengono proposti piatti tradizionali bolognesi rivisitati in chiave contemporanea, con grande attenzione alla stagionalità.

LOCATION PERFETTA - Il locale, con circa 35 posti, è perfetto per pranzi di lavoro, cene con amici e serate romantiche. Il piano interrato, con volta a botte, accoglie la cantina oltre a mostre ed eventi.

The staff were friendly and welcoming, they were happy to help with the menu, describing items etc even helping with wine choice if required. The food was outstanding. We had such a lovely evening. Essential to book ahead as they had to turn people away without reservations. The owner mingled among the tables which was a nice touch. The only fault I had was we had a bottle of Prosecco but no ice bucket to keep it chilled, we could have asked for one but we felt they should have supplied without asking.

It’s a very pleasant lunch! The staff are super nice and helpful even I’m the only one at the table. I like the way that they combined traditional Bolognese dishes with creative look! You still taste home-cooking but the presentation of the dishes are very modern.

Lovely staff, food came promptly and was very well presented may have been a little rich so cheese mousse could do with being smaller. That would be the only criticism.
Also as others have said you need to book as all the way through our meal they were turning people away. There are only about 30 covers.

This was our first visit. We had the fried mortadella appetizer, lasagna and tagliatelle bolognese as a middle course, followed by braised veal cheeks. Dessert was a traditional almond cake with cream. All were very well prepared. Atmosphere was very nice. Service was excellent. Prices were very fair. We will return.

Really tasty Italian food. Some traditional dishes and some more innovative recipes of their own. The black pasta with sepia and tomatoes was spectacular.

Wonderful meal! The egg with truffle on a bed of spinach was divine. Great that they have several half bottles of wine on their list. Nice to have a choice of coffees and the Guatemalan that I had was great. Will be back on our next visit.
