Refined selection of local wines


Diva Francesca begins her Taste Experience with a rustic and appetising antipasto: ‘polentine’, little polenta discs baked in the oven and topped with fresh cheese. 

For the first course, we have an iconic bolognese dish, tagliatelle alla bolognese, delicious ribbons of pasta served in a rich meat sauce. Next, she serves tender roast pork, enriched with seasonal fruit and accompanied by a warming potato tart with ham and cheese. 

Our Taste Experience comes to a close with a stunning dessert, an Italian classic. Mascarpone, eggs, savoiardi biscuits and coffee come together for an explosion of flavour… Tiramisù!

Diva Francesca lives in the very centre of Bologna, a stone’s throw away from Piazza Maggiore, right above the bustling streets of the city’s most popular market. This is the beating heart of Emilia’s capital, a maze of charming little streets which by day is filled with the chatter of strolling crowds, and by night by the chink of wine glasses as the local bars fill up with people. Above these busy scenes is an oasis of peace, where music from the streets below drifts up softly, our Cesarina’s terrace, which looks out over a breathtaking sight, the skyline of Bologna. Here, you can enjoy your dinner surrounded by a panorama that most people will only see on a postcard - the Vita church’s majestic dome, the iconic Garisenda and Asinelli towers, and the trademark red rooves of Bologna. It’s unforgettable. 

For Diva Francesca, her passion for food is a voyage of discovery leading her to new restaurants, new recipes and new tastes, but always keeping true to the rules and the produce of her regional cuisine.
