Garganelli Restaurant: Tradition and Creativity

Bologna, besides being the “Erudite” was defined the “Fat” for the richness and the variety of its flavour in the kitchen.

Garganelli Restaurant in Bologna was born in 1956 from the Trombetti Family willingness to “tell” the story of the Big Italian Cuisine and of their territory, proposing dishes typical from the Emilia Romagna Region as well as mediterranean flavours with fresh fish and creative combinations.

Since 2007 Garganelli Restaurant is located inside the park of Savoia Hotel Regency. Dedicated to the guests of the hotel as well as external ones, Garganelli Restaurant is open every day both at lunch time and at dinner time.

The menu à la carte is served in the Garganelli Restaurant Orangerie hall: an elegant and intimate space that looks on the big park at the entrance of Savoia Hotel Regency and on the majestic fountain.

During the summer the Orangierie becomes an open-air space for a romantic dinner under the stars.

The wide wine cards offers a big variety of labels both national and international perfect to accompany the menu à la carte that will change accordingly to the raw materials of the season.
