If you like Roman cuisine, there is no better place to get it in Bologna than this simple, little place tucked in a pedestrian-only street in central Bologna, known for the movida going on at all hours. QB is cozy, almost intimate, but its Gricia, Carbonara, Cacio e Pepe and Saltimbocca are tasty, the service is extremely friendly and the... More

Located in a very busy food street. Waiters are okay but not good in English. No English menu! Difficult to order food by yourself if you don't know Italian. No fish no seafood can be found in main course! Food are just average not impressive. Price is okay.

Come spring I always crave artichokes and in Rome they are easy to come by, but in Bologna the task is a little more difficult. We were happy to discover Quanto Basta, a very small and intimate Roman restaurant on one of the most lively streets of Bologna, Via del Pratello. Lucky for us, the two specials of the house...

Roman cuisine bistrot (looks mare a french brasserie rather than a Roman Osteria), at the end of one of the streets populated by students. Good dishes (menu with very low seasonal turnover) small wine list with some interesting suggestions. Very small, a few table outside in the summer (on the street) and discontinuous service (sometimes very good, sometimes just ok).

This is indeed one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant. The restaurant is a single simple and stylish room. The service was first rate - our Italian is atrocious and the waiter graciously took the time to translate the entire menu. But it is the food that is most memorable of all. One of the starters was... More

Some reviewers have been hard on this place. I took my mother there, no booking, lovely evening. Service was slow, but we had time. What's the rush! Mum doesn't eat much meat, she loved the Auvergne and a mix of cooked veges with pine nuts. Waitress very helpful with translation. We might go again tonight. A bit pricier than other... More

Quanto Basta is a small "brasserie style" restaurant in Bologna downtown, located in a students' populated street. Food is normally good, and the selction of good "price/quality" wines is good although too limited. Service is good, not extremely friendly and a little slow. A few tables, difficult to book.

Myself and my partner tried this restaurant as it's close to our home, on one of the most lively streets in Bologna and always has people in. We booked a meal on a Tuesday afternoon, for the coming Friday evening. Positive points: The main waitress (who happened to be the wife of the owner) was very helpful and attentive, suggesting...

We visited with friends. They were keen to have us try some food typical of further south. The foods were sourced from local producers the names of who are on the menu. The ingredients are fresh and the wine list good. The cost is reasonable

It is VERY hard to get into this place, so make a reservation. All the food was great but the pasta dishes are simply sensational. You can taste that everything has been handmade in house using the finest quality products. The restaurant is located at the end of via dell Pratello, one of the best streets in Bologna for bars,...
