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,...

Anyone who visits Bologna will be well aware that it is almost impossible to eat badly! There are numerous restaurants catering for all tastes but hidden just off the beaten track, slightly outside the centre, is The Quanto Basta. I am not really sure where to start. It is not a large establishment and it's atmosphere is welcoming and informal....just... More

At the end of via Pratello in Bologna, Quanto Basta provides a change of pace offering excellent Roman dishes. For two people or more, I highly recommend starting with a biste of Calcio & Pepe and Ameritcana. Seconds and desserts are also top notch. I highly recommend making a reservation. This is a place with a casual place, where the... More
