Apartheid in the restaurant!

I cannot understand why the staff put Italians in one part of the restaurant and others in another....I found this distasteful! That being said it was a good meal of an inventive nature and very good wines by the glass.

Following a long, grueling trip from New York which featured delayed flights and missed connections, a large group of my colleagues and I decided to dine at Battibecco based on a friend's experience here many years ago. Fortunately for all of us, this Trattoria still remains an excellent choice. By the time we finished our meal, our travel ordeal had... More

Our last night after some disappointing recommended restaurants, we came across this small unassuming restaurant hidden in Via Battibenco and next to Via Fusari. The Trattoria is near Piazza. Maggiore and major sights of Bologna. We made reservations beforehand specially on a Friday evening. The place was packed with locals and tourists. We were whisked to our table and were... More

Excellent service and wonderful food, this little restaurant near the centre of town is well worth a visit. The wines on offer were varied and the menu had several very tempting dishes, I settled on a goats cheese salad to start while my colleagues opted for the octopus. We all chose roasted monk fish for the main. Really tasty, well... More

This is an excellent restaurant with true bolognese food without having to have the spaghetti bolognese. It is a little hidden away, which makes it all the more charming. Good wine list and delicisou cooking. Will definitely come back here. on my next visit. Be sure to reserve for dinner.

Went there twice in a three day visit to Bologna. Somewhat pricy but worth every cent. Food is exquisite and made with the best possible ingredients. Service to very high standards too. I would make a stop in Bologna just to go to Trattoria Battibecco because it is worth the trip.
