Fodor's Expert Review Ristorante I Portici

$$$$ Bologna Emilian

The frescoed ceiling, parquet flooring, and live classical music are clues that this sophisticated restaurant (part of the hotel of the same name) occupies a former theater and café-chantant, or musical venue, from the late 19th century. It's the perfect setting for an evening of fine dining featuring mainly Emilian-inspired dishes with modern touches and the vision of the young, award-winning chef Gianluca Renzi. The menus change seasonally, and two separate tasting menus offer gustatory bliss.
