I've invited by my friends for dinner in this resto... When we enter the resto, its clear that this place specialty in fish and seafood. We skip the pasta and directly order the main menu which is the combination of grilled prawn, scallop and lobster. Fantastic + cozy classical design + great anbience = perfect night

I found it on tripadvisor and decided to go there for dinner with my colleagues. The place is quite small and we were lucky to find a place but the dinner was amazing!! They don't have a written menù and we followed the suggestion of the owner to go with the degustazione of 8 dishes. Every dish was amazing, from... More

A lovely family restaurant in the center of Bologna. Located in a small alley, well hidden, you will certainly find this a treasure when you try it. There is no menu, the owner & chef will propose a combination according to the seasonal availables. There are usually 6-7 starters, followed by 1-2 seafood pasta, main course, desserts and aftermeal soberto,... More

It was a friendly bussiness dinner after a long day. Pizza was excellent and the sea food had compliments from my friends (personaly seafood is not my first choice but i tasted from my friens and it was very nice). Generaly you can find place but of course it is better to make reservation for dinner.

No longer a hidden gem, this tiny restaurant in the heart of Bologna is a must... Book well in advance to avoid disappointment (NB not always open on Sundays). With no menu, each course is a surprise; with about six or seven very filling fish antipasti and a main dish, this restaurant is a seafood lover's dream. The deserts were... More

After doing a bit of research before travelling to Bologna I tried to telephone the restaurant before leaving the UK to book a table for the Saturday evening. Unfortunately the lady who answered did not have very good English or rather I can't speak any Italian so all I could translate was that they were closed. However not being put... More

We came here early because we know from the reviews that it's a small place. When we arrived a man told us that we should come back at 8pm. So we waited almost 45 minutes. When we came back, he just said "no reservation, no place". Couldn't he say that earlier? What a bad service.
