Bolognese, the Italian restaurant, which is situated in Almaty, on intersection of Gogolya and Zheltoksan streets, was chosen as a subject for review this time. I chose it since the reviews about the place were controversial, and plus I was not there yet. Also – because I know the original Italian cuisine, the performance of other Almaty places, so can judge it relatively well. So, I really became interested. Though it is important to realize that Italian cuisine is the cuisine of products, and it is rather hard to spoil the meals, if the correct authentic products are used. So, lets see.
As it turned out, the restaurant had two entrances – from each street, Gogolya and Zheltoksan. We entered from Gogolya street and were greeted by…no one. There were no waiters at entrance. There was a single couple having lunch right near the entrance. We walked along the small halls of the restaurant – the place was the office before, so the zoning of the premises was not standard. It turned out that the bar and administrator were near the entrance which was on Zheltoksan street, and that was the place where guests were being welcomed and seated. Well...I guess proper guests shall not come in from other side, since there was no one.
