All reviews veal bread vegetarian lasagne mortadella antipasti potatoes local beer definitely recommend this restaurant main course friendly service delicious meal dish waiters fork zucchini limoncello city
Lovely lunch in Gessetto. We had the lagsane alla bolognese and the spaghettoni feschi alla puttanesca; for desert, we went for the chocolat mousse.
The portions were good, the food was delicious and the staff was really nice!
So lets start this with a review of the waitor. We arrived on spec one midweek evening. We asked the waitor if there was a seat outside. He said assertively "NO". He did not try to get us a seat inside, he turned on his...heel and walked away. There were a number of free tables outside.... We were a little amused and just went on our way.
Fast forward a few days later, we decided we would come back. This time also with no reservation. This time, the same waitor greeted us and provided us with seat and a very good friendly service. it was definitely the same guy. Seems alittle highly strung!!! haha
The food was very good. Zucchini flowers stuffed with potatoe was delicious and the tagliatelli with Salsiccia and Spuacerone cheese was out of this world. We went for Dessert also, a wonderful Chocolate mouse, and a great cheesecake. We got a free limoncello to boot. Would highly recommend.
I just hope you get the waitor on a good dayMore
do not serve tourists! we got kicked out!
we understand little Italian, but the owner was provocatively loud! when we made a comment to him that there was no need to raise the tone, he started screaming even louder! in the end he sent us!...the reason is not clear!More
Gessetto kindly found room for us to have dinner at short notice. All staff were so friendly and happy to help with descriptions of the food. And the food itself is exceptional - we tried the antipasti and pasta specials and these were remarkable. The...atmosphere generally was happy, with nothing but compliments from the other tables around us. Couldn’t recommend more highlyMore
This was the most remarkable surprise of our whole trip thus far. We happened on it wandering and hungry for lunch. What we found inside was magical. This was the beat pasta-bet none-I have had in Italy. BAR NONE!!! Then, when I asked how one...could go about making pasta gesseto our waiter patiently taught me. This was absolutely wonderful. If you are in Bologna you must go.More
Amazing experience in a lovely place in a cozy square of Bologna. The waiters are very kind and nice, the traditional meals, apart from being incredibly delicious, are also healthy!
Absolutely recommended also for the the price, that gets along with the quality of the...dishes.More
I do understand when a place is fully booked and there is no table left. That’s 100% fine and understandable. What I don’t understand and not appreciate is when one needs to be rude and impolite when telling people so.
We checked the place first...at 7.10 pm when it still had 20 mins until opening.. outdoor place was fully ready and we were told that they’re just not open yet. Good service would be asking people if they would like to have a drink anyway until the kitchen opens. Again - it was just 15-20 minutes.. Instead we were just told that there is a handful tables left and that they can’t block any of them even if we’re back in 20 mins.. however, we went for a 20 min walk came back and the outdoor space was a little more crowded, yet still not full. When asking if we can have a seat of one of the tables we were just arrogantly told „fully booked“ without even looking to our faces or any sense of politeness… again - do understand a fully booked place, but not the rudeness.
I personally believe a good restaurant experience starts with the service, followed by great food and atmosphere. I cant judge on the last two, but the first one was definitely a no go.
Sorry to write this, especially when looking at the other positive reviews, but constructive feedback should always be welcomeMore
